When you’re a new agent, one of the toughest things to overcome is the fear of beginning a real estate conversation.

So tell us: What’s your best one-liner to start real estate conversations? Who did you learn it from, and how does it work?

Let us know below:
We’ll compile a list of the top responses and post them on Inman next Tuesday.
