TikTok is becoming one of the more popular social media platforms, so real estate professionals should be taking advantage of it now. What kind of content can agents and mortgage professionals share on TikTok? How can we create successful videos, and is it possible to use success on the platform to see real-life results? On this episode, licensed mortgage originator, author of Color My Credit and TikTok enthusiast, Alisa Glutz, shares how to build a massive following on the platform. 

 

Takeaways + Tactics 

Take a script we would use on a client and act it out dramatically. Bring the script to life, and take advantage of all the creative tools TikTok offers. 

TikTok videos are short, so be sure to capture the audience’s attention right from the start. Jump out at the camera if need be, but make sure the audience is hooked from the first word. 

Don’t feel limited by TikTok’s short video format; direct the audience to other platforms, like YouTube. Be sure to have more in-depth content on these platforms, and use it as a way to boost credibility.

So often, people hold back from making an impact on others’ lives because they’re trying to be someone they’re not. How can we become more helpful to others? Why is it so important to let go of our egos and be our authentic selves? On this episode,  developer of the 36 to Life movement, coach Hank Avink, shares insights on the importance of authenticity.

 

Takeaways + Tactics 

Have a mindset of service. We need to stop thinking about selling something, and genuinely want to help others with our knowledge. 

Stay in your lane. Being authentic brings phenomenal results, while being inauthentic tends to have poor results. Just be yourself. 

Drop the ego at the door. People lose the most money when their egos are involved, so present yourself as someone with a genuine desire to help others. 

Jan 9, 2020

As real estate professionals, being visible is non-negotiable, so we have to make sure we’re gaining as much meaningful visibility as possible on social media. Which platforms should we be taking advantage of to boost our followings, and should we be striving for a high number of followers in the first place? How can we connect with the kinds of people we want to work with when we don’t have a big following? On this episode, we discuss how to use social media for meaningful engagement and better results. 

 

Takeaways + Tactics 

  • Be mindful of where the audience is. It’s easy to be distracted by new platforms, but we have to keep creating content for the platforms where we already have a following. 
  • Aim for engagement. Having a high number of followers is irrelevant if we have no engagement with those followers, so we should spend more time making a real impact on our current audiences. 
  • When we have little-to-no followers, the best strategy we can take is to reach out to the people we want to work with directly. Most social media platforms allow users to send direct messages- so make the most of those.

Dealing with objections in real estate is a frustrating reality for agents, so it’s a good idea to have responses to those objections prepared in advance. How should we react to protestations in the buying process? Is there a way to stop objections from forming in the first place- and how should we approach buyers who stall the process to speak to other decision makers? On this episode, CEO and President at BrokerageUP! Inc and RealEstateCoach.com, Bernice Ross shares how asking the right questions can help us tackle objections. 

 

Takeaways + Tactics 

Asking questions is extremely powerful. Instead of telling a client what to do, formulate questions that will help them rethink their objections. 

To avoid objections being raised at crucial moments, be upfront with buyers at the first meeting. Ask if they would be ready to make an offer immediately when they find the right house. 

It’s extremely frustrating for agents when buyers stall the buying process to consult with their decision makers. To stop this from happening, encourage buyers to bring decision makers along to each listing.

As we head into a new decade, it’s time to start thinking like the next generation of real estate agents. What is the new generation doing to reach a wider audience? Once we connect with a bigger audience, how can we build stronger relationships with our markets? On this episode, Gene Volpe joins us to discuss the next generation tactics to take our businesses into the future.

 

Takeaways + Tactics 

Use social media to share content everyone enjoys. While cat videos might not tell our audience we’re great agents, they do humanize us and show our personalities.

Once we’ve branded our personalities, we have to remind our audiences of the work we do. This doesn’t need to be a time-consuming task- we just have to be more intentional about our content. 

Build stronger relationships by approaching local businesses and asking to promote their special offers. The businesses will benefit from the awareness, customers will benefit from the specials and we’ll be known for sharing value.

The top performers in real estate share common habits, so ambitious agents should be paying attention to what those habits are and implementing them in their own lives. How do successful real estate professionals overcome their fears- and is it possible for new agents to do the same? Can we stop ourselves from reaching a plateau of success- and why is it so important to be more intentional about our futures? On this episode, clinical psychologist and leadership coach Dr Sheri Fluellen shares how to emulate the habits of top producers. 

 

Takeaways + Tactics 

Build the habit of having courage. All of us have fears, but the only way to overcome them is by taking action and doing what scares us and eventually the fear will subside. 

Keep increasing necessity. As we become more successful, we stop feeling a need to achieve. We have to keep pushing our limits and increasing our necessity as we grow. 

Be more intentional. We have to know where we’re going in business and in life, and surround ourselves with people who can help us achieve our goals.

One of the biggest barriers to our success in marketing is that we’re putting out a lot of content, but we’re not saying anything arresting, surprising or compelling. How should we approach marketing so that it doesn’t waste our time, energy and resources? Why is it so critical to think of marketing from the perspective of the audience? On this episode, Gene Volpe joins us to talk about the right way to go about marketing. 

It’s not just about mass broadcasting, it’s about being able to communicate effectively to the people who need to hear your message. -Greg McDaniel 

Takeaways + Tactics 

  • On social media, most of us don’t give anyone a clear and compelling reason to know or remember what we do. We think that because we’re visible we’re going to persuade people. 
  • Our time is much more valuably spent in conversation with the right people.  
  • When you’re not the person you’re marketing to, your view is tainted and unbiased. It’s important to think of your advertising from the perspective of the audience so you know the effect it will have.

A changing real estate market presents opportunities that we can use to be more valuable to clients. What is the opportunity in doing real estate on-terms? How can agents add these to their listing presentation, and bring more value to prospective buyers? Why is it so important to expand our approach to real estate beyond listing homes? In this episode, author, investor and founder of Smart Real Estate Coach, Chris Prefontaine is back to talk about this incredible opportunity in real estate. 

Nationally, more and more real estate is being done on terms because banks are getting harder to work with. -Chris Prefontaine 

Takeaways + Tactics 

 

Selling on terms is a win for everyone in the transaction

The great thing about doing real estate on terms is that a seller doesn’t lose any money, and can get out of the home quickly, a person who wants to get into the home but can’t easily get a bank loan can rent to own, and the investor gets a property that will cash flow.  

 

Build up your credibility 

Not everyone has an established reputation, and that can make it scary to approach sellers. It’s important to have confidence, and to mention any partners you have in the business who have more experience, and it’s also important to join the Better Business Bureau. It’s important to have ties to credibility.  

 

The value of being investor vs. an agent

It’s better to say you’re an investor with an offer to buy a house than it is to say you are a real estate agent saying you want to list their house.

Social media is vital for success in the real estate industry today, and posting video content in particular is non-negotiable. What kind of content should we be including in our videos- and how can we become more comfortable on camera in the early stages? Should our videos be strictly professional, or is authenticity more important? On this episode, founder of DigitalNatives Inc., James Rembert, and owner and founder of Amplified Marketing Group, Nick Sakkis share their insights on video, social media and the future of the real estate industry. 

Nationally, we can’t compete with online competitors. But on a hyperlocal stage, we can give them hell. -James Rembert

Takeaways + Tactics 

  • To become relevant in our markets, we need to create hyperlocal content. To do this, we can film our experiences in local establishments- like restaurants.
  • In the early stages of being on camera, it’s normal to feel nervous. To combat shyness, we can film ourselves completing everyday tasks. This will help us get used to being on camera.
  • Authenticity is everything, so stop worrying about telling viewers what we think they want to hear. If we’re authentic, we’ll be more likely to attract an audience better suited to us.

To stay ahead of new competitors like Zillow, we have to embrace social media. Start getting comfortable with sharing videos, because they’re non-negotiable for success. We need to speak about hyper-locally relevant topics, and build confidence by being ourselves. The real estate industry is going to feel a lot of changes thanks to the internet, but if we stay up-to-date with social media while staying true to ourselves, we don’t need to agonize over it.

Often, agents lose out on deals when clients think they can buy or sell their properties more easily on their own. How can we make sure our clients know we’re offering a service worthy of their business? What part of our inner game do we need to tweak to start delivering the kind of value that takes us to the top of the game? On this episode, we discuss why offering value is vital for sustained success. 

If you think a buyer is trying to cut you out of a deal, get them on the phone. Don’t tell them things: ask them things. Get them to think about aspects they’ve never considered and they’ll realize why they need a buyer’s agent. -Matt Johnson

Takeaways + Tactics 

  • Educate clients by asking them questions. This gets them to think about buying and selling in a way they never have before, and shows we have the expertise they need.
  • It’s not enough to presume we’re worthy of great commissions- we have to earn our keep. We need to constantly bring value to the table if we want to generate revenue. 
  • We have to stop underestimating our power. Our inner game dictates our success, so if we believe we hold no authority, we’ll only do ourselves a disservice.

There’s an easy way to stop ourselves from being cut out of deals. If we just knuckle down and offer clients amazing value, we’ll become an obvious choice. Get clients to start thinking differently about real estate, and we’ll position ourselves as authority figures in the market. Most importantly, we need to believe we’re capable of it. Our inner game affects every part of our lives- let’s start believing we’re capable of delivering great value.

Technology has ushered in many changes to real estate. Some changes are small, and others are set to completely revolutionize everything about our business. How can we play within these changes, or prepare our businesses to avoid getting overrun by disruptors? On this episode, we answer these questions and other viewer questions about remaining relevant in a changing real estate business. 

If we want to survive in this industry, we should make sure we’re “Tom Cruise famous” with at least 50 people. It’s really about relationships and making sure we’re close to our database. -Greg McDaniel 

Takeaways + Tactics 

In lead follow up, texting irks people because they aren’t expecting it. We need to explain the purpose of our texts and make them personal. 

Tech companies are winning the battle for the hearts and minds of consumers, and there’s very little incentive for them to bring agents into their model. 

The more we operate in the space where we’re not selling cookie-cutter homes, the less likely we are to get replaced by tech companies.

 

Most real estate agents are worried about what the influx of tech companies in our industry means for our survival. As much as there’s a lot of change on the horizon, it doesn’t have to be all gloom and doom for us. If we want to sustain the traditional model, we have to get into action right now. We have to build strong relationships with clients who will always want to work with us and move out of the business of cookie cutter homes. If we play in our own league, we won’t get replaced. 

Oct 11, 2019

According to Perry Marshall’s book, The truth about the big outcomes we get in business and in marketing is that they come from about 20% of our actions. The challenge is that most of us are inundated by tasks that don’t really move the needle in our businesses. How can we analyze and evaluate our time so we can use it better? What is the best and highest use of our time? On this episode, we talk about the 80-20 rule and how we can use it to our benefit. 

In sales and marketing, most of our results come from very few things we’re doing. -Matt Johnson 

Takeaways + Tactics 

  • Sales is not a process of convincing people to work with you, it’s a process of disqualifying who you shouldn’t be working with. 
  • If we go back and analyze our time, we’ll realize that there are things we could pay someone else to do for us. We can take that and build a process around it and pay someone else to do it. 
  • In business there’s just no way around having conversations with your ideal client. 
  • As real estate agents, lead generation and conversion are our highest value activities.  

The truth about business at any level is that there are certain activities that may not take up all our time, but unlock the most growth, success and profit. Whatever plateau we find ourselves at, the key to breaking through is freeing up time for those higher value activities, and then passing everything else to somebody else. Each stage of leveling up comes after we hone in on a higher value activity, and that concept rules and changes everything in our lives.

In the real estate industry, building relationships is crucial for success. How can we build rapport with our clients? What can we do to assemble a great database of people to bond with in the first place? On this episode, we discuss why relationships are vital in real estate, and how to go about building them. 

You have to be as visible as possible in your community. -Greg McDaniel

Takeaways + Tactics 

  1. Be authentic and transparent about who you are. People do business with agents who are true to themselves. 
  2. Stop trying to sell- focus on building genuine relationships and having real conversations with clients.
  3. To build a bigger database, give your business card to 25 people everyday, for 4 months.

Real estate is a people’s business, so it’s vital we connect with as many people as possible. While it can be anxiety-inducing at first, if we commit to meeting as many people as we can, we stand ourselves in good stead to build great relationships that benefit our businesses. Remember to be authentic in all dealings, and focus on conversation and transparency, rather than sales. By building rapport with clients, we can make sales without a pitch.

So often, the only thing holding us back from achieving our goals is us. How can we break the cycle of making excuses, and start making good on the promises we make to ourselves? What tactical steps can we take to hold ourselves accountable? On this episode, founder of GVI Media Gene Volpe and REDX Director of Content Development, Justin Zimmerman, explain how we can all stop making excuses. 

Your word is your bond: honor the commitments you make to yourself. -Matt Johnson

Takeaways + Tactics 

  1. We need to honor the commitments we make to ourselves. If we can’t keep promises we make, we can’t expect others to keep their word either.
  2. Train your mind to stay focused on the goal by creating habits.
  3. Say the goal out loud. If those around us know our intentions, they can help keep us accountable.

To achieve our goals, we need to respect and honor the commitments we’ve made. Without making good on our promises, the only people we’re letting down are ourselves. We need to start doing activities habitually and train ourselves until we no longer question them as part of our daily routines. While staying accountable is something we need to do for ourselves, we can also enlist the help of those around us. By simply sharing our goals with others, we add another layer of accountability.

Mobile home parks are one of the most untapped investing asset classes that we could be taking advantage of. What benefits does it offer and how do they match up against the more traditional investing markets? How did our guest build a lead generation system from scratch for mobile home investing? On this episode, we’re joined by real estate investor, entrepreneur and podcaster, Kevin Bupp, who shares on creating passive income through mobile home parks, and relationship networking and lead generation. 

Direct-to-owner marketing is all about getting the timing right. -Kevin Bupp

Takeaways + Tactics 

  1. If you can laser target exactly who your client is, it’s sometimes easier to put together a custom list than to sift through a list created by someone else. 
  2. Benefits of mobile home parks. Lower turnover, it’s the only asset class with a diminishing supply so there isn’t a lot of competition. There’s also ease of management, because you’re not in charge of the homes but the land, and common areas.  
  3. Direct-to-owner marketing is all about giving people value to build trust and interest before they need to buy and sell, so that we’re top of mind when that need does arise.

When it comes to real estate investing, we shouldn’t just be focused on the trendy and more well-known methods when there’s an opportunity to dominate in an area with very little competition and massive benefits. Mobile home investing is an example of this. With a massive barrier of entry when it comes to lead generation and unmatched benefits, it is the epitome of blue water fishing, meaning we have a higher chance of becoming kings of the category.

We tend to think of our businesses as a way to make money, and something we should keep separate from our personal lives. Is it possible to embrace our personal beliefs and passions, while also benefiting our businesses? How can we use our businesses to increase awareness for the charities we believe in? On this episode, host of the Dreaming of Cooperstown podcast and social entrepreneur Scott Morris shares how we can build social good into our businesses. 

Making a difference in other people’s lives will bring the riches and success you’re chasing. -Greg McDaniel

Takeaways + Tactics 

  1. Our businesses and passions don’t need to be separate. We can merge the two by donating a portion of what we receive from clients to a charity we or the client are passionate about.
  2. Don’t worry about being vulnerable. Sharing our stories with clients only endears us to them.
  3. Create a network of business owners with shared passions and interests. This boosts our profiles while spreading awareness for the causes closest to our hearts.

As business owners, we have the power to bring awareness to the issues we feel strongly about. We no longer need to hide our advocacy or be afraid to share why we support certain causes. Use the positions we occupy for good- there’s no reason why our businesses shouldn’t benefit from our social good. In fact, we can do good while benefiting our businesses.

There are some common fears that agents have when they scope out a speciality, and they center around having enough business and feeling like they’re limiting themselves. How can we overcome these fears? What should we be looking at when deciding on niche markets? How can we add value to the clients we serve in the downsizing market? In this episode, Kim Stanley explains what we need to do to specialize in the downsizing market, as well as how her downsizing specialist course can help us build our business.

There are six subsets of downsizers and you should choose the sub-niche that fits best for you and for your market. -Kim Stanley

Takeaways + Tactics

  1. The most difficult thing clients face when downsizing is letting go of their belongings. We need to be able to guide and advise them through the process of getting rid of things that aren’t worth anything, and that aren’t of any further use.
  2. When looking to specialize, we need to research the statistics on a national and local level to make an informed decision. The numbers and money point to the downsizing market, and it’s a market that’s on the increase. 
  3. There are different subsets and types of people who downsize - seniors, divorcees, empty nesters - and we should be focusing on the subset that is the best fit for us and our market.

 

Nationally, 10,000 people turn 65 every day and together they’ve got $2,5 trillion to invest in real estate. The people who fall into the downsizing market are the most financed niche in the United States. One of the toughest decisions agents have to make is choosing what to specialize in, and there is a lot of fear around making this choice. By looking at demographic and market statistics in our area we can put those uncertainties to bed and cater to the needs and wants of the sub-niche market that aligns with us and our local market.

For newer agents, the biggest challenge is getting those first leads going in order to get your first deal. How can we create opportunities to get in front of potential clients? How can we do open houses well? How can you build pieces into your business to increase your chances of getting a deal? On this episode, Colemere Realty leader, Bryan Colemere shares on how to work your way towards your first deal. 

Don’t let the fear of not knowing stop you from making the call or holding the open house. -Bryan Colemere 

Takeaways + Tactics 

  1. If you’re struggling and need to get the business going, hold an open house. 
  2. Other agents are not your competition, they are your salesforce. Look at them as a gateway to more clients. 
  3. Don’t think you have to be fastened to your desk to get business. Take part in your hobbies and social events and make sure people know that you’re in real estate.

Even as a new agent, you have access to many people who can help lead you to your very first deal. The first thing you need to do is really zone into your sphere of influence and start letting them know what you do. Don’t be afraid to make calls, hold open houses and making sure your community knows that you’re in real estate. It might seem challenging to get that first result, but if you leverage your time wisely and employ different tools, you can get results.

The path to happiness and success is full of mental traps that our minds put us in. We create all these reasons why we can’t do something based on uncertainty or ease, especially when we are starting out. How does facing adversity help us minimize excuses? What mindset should we have when making commitments to ourselves? How can we train ourselves to consistently spend time working on our personal goals? In this episode, Justin Zimmerman talks about personal growth and development, and how building rituals and routines into our lives can help us grow in the way we want to be growing.

Everything starts with how strong and serious your internal commitment to yourself and to your goals is. -Matt Johnson

When we face enough adversity and overcome it, the voices in our heads that tell us we can’t do something become insignificant and the excuses we used to make for ourselves become irrelevant.

 

We often don’t honor the commitments we make to ourselves in the same way we honor those with others. Once we make a commitment to ourselves, we need to honor it and get over our excuses.

 

When we have a dedicated time every day for doing what we need to do to reach our personal goals, we are training ourselves to do it automatically. Our excuses for not spending time working towards our goals fall away because it’s pre-negotiated.

 

The commitments we make to ourselves are just as important as the ones we make to others, yet we seem honor them less. These commitments, and the fulfillment of them, play a big role in our sense of self and our confidence. We need to get past the excuses and negotiations we have with ourselves about taking the steps to reach our personal goals by making sure that we have a dedicated time blocked off every day to work on these goals. Once we have built this into our schedule, the excuses we used to make fall away because taking that action becomes automatic and something that we have pre-negotiated.

Most agents feel like they can’t buy investment property because they don’t have the money to. Instead of focusing on our money that comes in and goes out, we should be looking at what assets are available to us. How does the banking system keep us poor? How can we break free from that? How can we use money and assets in a way that helps us build a life of freedom? In this episode, Chris Naugle discusses how the banking system really works, and how we can adopt its systems to be more successful.

You can double your money and you don’t have to work any longer or any harder or change anything in your life - you just have to use the money that’s sitting there doing nothing. -Chris Naugle

Takeaways + Tactics

We need to start working on our business instead of in our business, and our business will explode.

 

We don’t need to have money to be successful - we have to be resourceful and learn how money works, and we can figure out how money works by looking at what banks are doing and duplicating it.

 

To be successful people we need to do two things really well: invest our time and invest our money. 

 

The banking system is set up to make banks more money and to keep us reliant on them in a cycle of debt. By using money from 401(k)s, home equities and other assets that are just sitting there doing nothing, we can invest in ourselves and our business and become our own bank. If we don’t have assets like these, we need to approach those who do with the opportunity to use and make money from their assets that are otherwise sitting stagnant. We need to learn how to make money work for us so that we don’t have to work harder for less.

There is a language and a flavor to every different social media platform, and we should therefore have content that makes sense for each of these platforms. We can make the most boring content engaging by putting it across in a relatable way, we just need to change our mindset about our content. How can we leverage social media algorithms to our advantage? How do we create engaging content? What can we do to improve our hashtag strategy? In this episode, social media and social sales expert, Chelsea Peitz explains what we need to do to use Instagram effectively, and how doing so will help our brand and business grow.

High-touch is critical today - just because it’s technology-involved it doesn’t mean that you’re taking the humanity out of it. -Chelsea Peitz

Takeaways + Tactics

  • We can leverage Instagram’s current two-way mutual engagement algorithm to our advantage by engaging with people on Instagram, especially via direct message. Our posts go to the top of their feed when the algorithm registers that we are interacting.
  • In order to create engaging content on social media, our content needs to fall under the following five E’s: educational, entertaining, engaging, exclusive and emotional. 
  • We need to avoid making these three common mistakes when we use hashtags on Instagram: not using enough hashtags, using hashtags that are too broad, and using non-relevant hashtags. 


There is a lot to learn about social media algorithms - not only are they always changing but they are different on different platforms. We can leverage and work with these algorithms if we know how to use them. Our industry is still about relationship building, and we need to be able to build that trust through technology. By posting and sharing the right content for the platform regularly, recognizing the difference between the various content streams on a platform, utilizing relevant hashtags, making use of direct messaging, and changing our mindset about the content we put out there, we can use social media platforms like Instagram to not only build our brand, but make relationships and generate more business.

Most real estate agents come across deals they could invest in and miss out on the opportunity to create wealth. How are the investment opportunities different for single family and multi-family properties? How can you identify a good deal? How can you start building the property to get into multi-property investments? On this episode, we’re joined by multi-family property investor JC Castillo, who shares how agents can get started. 

Takeaways + Tactics

The three things you should look at for multi-family investments is location, financials, and value creation potential. 

Multi-family units are priced differently to single family homes which use comps. Multi-family units are priced based on profits and performance. 

Value plays are the X-factor in successful multi-family investment. These are improvements and changes you can make to the units to add value to them.  

 

Through multi-family property investments real estate agents can build wealth and set themselves up for a better future. If you can find a property in a good location, with good financials and the opportunity to add value to the units, you can do very well. What’s key is getting the education to help you get started, and if possible to partner with other people to make the whole process less overwhelming.

Video content is probably the biggest component of being able to grow your influence and database online. How can you leverage video content? What kind of content can you create if you want to engage with people? How can we evoke emotion using video? On this episode, we’re joined Genesis Home Team leaders Eli Schmidt and Will Grimes share their winning video content strategy. 

The more positive emotions you can invoke for someone, the more they will like you and want to know more about what you do. -Gene Volpe 

Takeaways + Tactics

 

You don’t have to be an expert to create content. By documenting the things that work for you, you’ll also alleviate arguments and negativity from social media because you are just sharing your own experience. 

 

Don’t beat people down with selling what you do, just show up consistently and when the need arises, people will want to work with you. 

 

Don’t look for immediate ROI/cause and effect in your video content. You have to be consistent and persistent to get results. 

 

When it comes to real estate, people are already sold on the what, they want to buy or sell a house. What they need to be sold on is the person they need to work with. This is where video content comes into play. It allows you to show off your personality and value which makes people want to work with you. If you set yourself apart and always show up authentically, you will attract your database.
