Going the Extra Mile

One of Victoria Hill’s clients needed to sell his five-bedroom home. It had sat unoccupied for 10 years. After his wife died, the seller had moved away without packing anything. “He wasn’t emotionally prepared to clean it out on his own,” says Hill, 29. So, she rolled up her sleeves and helped him sift through closets and drawers. After a week of sorting and cleaning, the house went on the market, and the two formed a strong bond. Her tagline is fitting: “Your Property, My Priority.” Hill doesn’t look for shortcuts to success. Before the pandemic, her primary source of clients came from knocking on 70 doors every afternoon, five days a week. “I learned to approach door-knocking with a ‘what can I do for you,’ as opposed to the very common ‘what can you do for me,’ attitude,” she says. “Even if a contact shows no interest in buying or selling, I continue to nurture the relationship.”
