Many agents pass up on lucrative wholesale deals almost every day of their careers. What are they missing in order to capitalize on those deals? What tools need to be taken into account when branching out as an investor? What are the benefits of being versatile in real estate? These and many more questions are answered in this week's episode with Tom Cafarella, who shares the secrets to his success.

------------------------------------------- 

Takeaways + Tactics

Keep a big database of potential sales.

Only 1 out of 10 people sell at a discount - know what to do when you meet a discount seller and capitalize on it.

Always take advice with a grain of salt.

 

------------------------------------------------------

At the start of the show, Tom shared how the integration of virtual ISAs has helped his company hit upwards of 600 - 800 calls a day, and how this has increased their cold calling efficiency. Next, we got a brief tip from Gene Volpe regarding Feedly - a content aggregator from common news sites and RSS feeds, which can be utilized to generate engagement with content. Afterwards, Tom shared his experience with wholesaling and his experience with real estate agents' reluctance to take on investing. He also touched on why agents shouldn't take rejections personally and staying focused on the long-term goal. Towards the end he shared his tips on effectively using databases to get sales in the future.

 ----------------------------------------------

Tom also discussed;

  •   His ideas about the Real Estate Mogul podcast
  •   Why agents need to be versatile and consider branching out
  •   How to reach prospective sellers
  •   The role of emotions in real estate marketing
  •   Factors to take into account before deciding to invest in a property

 ------------------------------------------

Staying afloat in the real estate business requires constant innovation and self-motivation to do better every day. Sellers will expect you to know what's best for them - and you need to combine that knowledge with what's best for you as an agent. Don't miss on opportunities for self-development that could give your business a real boost. Part of real estate is about the technology you use in your marketing, but an even bigger part is the constant strive to do better and reach the maximum limits of your potential.

Fulfillment, passion and joy are missing from our business planning. How do these things affect our success over time? Why is sleep the key to the answers we’re really looking for? Why is it important to ramp down to bed? On this episode, James Colburn shares how he turned his life around and found fulfillment in his life and business. He also shares on why sleep is so important to us getting better!

Takeaways + Tactics

YOU are already enough - you don't need to chase “enough-ness".

Freedom happens because you create structure, which builds habits, and those habits create freedom.

Real estate is as simple as talking to people and listening for CHANGE - and social media is a dream scenario for listening for change in people's lives.

 

--------------------------------- 

At the start of the show, James shared the journey he took to finding fulfillment, passion and joy in his business. Next, we talked about the importance of knowing what a million dollar would look like, and we also shared on the importance of knowing that you are enough. Towards the end of the show, we talked about the importance of having a set start to the day.

--------------------------------- 

James also shared on;

  • Why it’s wrong to use fear as your fuel
  • Why freedom actually comes from structure
  • The science of sleep and what we can learn from Einstein
  • How you access miracles

--------------------------------- 

 

Too often we get lost in the next transaction, and the next deal that we forget about what truly matters. We actually owe it to ourselves to put fulfillment first, and ask the questions that set us up for a successful future. Freedom happens because you create habits, and those habits over time, become things you don’t even have to think about. It’s important to build a life that fulfills you internally. Ask yourself questions at the end of the day, and in the morning, listen for your answer and it will be delivered to you.

Real estate agents are notoriously bad negotiators. How can you overcome this, and bring value to clients so they want to hire you? How do you use negotiation skills to become their agent for life? How can you pitch yourself as a solo agent or a new agent? On this episode, we are joined by the always engaging Glenn Twiddle, who brings us a lot of value!

 -------------------------------- 

Takeaways + Tactics

People hire us to absorb hassle and be there through the emotional process of buying a house.

When you tell people what you offer, quantifying the hard work and your availability makes your pitch more effective.

Handle the, “I want a flat-fee broker” objection by asking them to give you the opportunity to earn your full fee.

 --------------------------------

At the start of the show, we talked about handling the objection of someone telling you they want a flat-fee broker. Glenn provided a great script, and he shared on the importance of overwhelming them with value and communication. Next, we talked about the advantages being a newer agent offers, and towards the end of the show, Glenn shared on the people he has coached.

We also spoke about;

  • How to quantify your hard work and availability
  • How to generate referrals before you even sell the client’s house
  • The importance of absorbing hassle

--------------------------------

The bottom line in real estate is, people want availability. They want someone who can be there for them through a very important time in their life. When you’re a newer agent, availability is one thing you really have going for you, so leverage it. Quantify how dedicated and available you can be. The goal is to overwhelm them with value because there’s no such thing as over-communication. When you bring value, you won’t get as much push back in the form of objections.

New technologies may have taken over real estate, but the relationships, problems and objections are the same. How do you go from getting a listing to gaining a forever client? What are the ways you can set expectations when you start the relationship? How do you handle a seller who isn’t budging even though the price is wrong? On this episode, we are joined by real estate rockstars Melinda Estridge and Daniel Schuler.

Takeaways + Tactics

When sellers offer too much resistance tell them, “you’re still the highest bidder for your own home.”

As soon as you hit a wall or an objection, you need to go into question mode.

Write down every single thing you do, and then make a system so nothing goes through the cracks.

 

----------------------------------------

At the start of the show, Gene shared his tip of the week which was SIC codes, and then Melinda and Daniel shared on the importance of narrowing down your lead gen pillars. Next, we talked about the importance of face to face interaction, why you need to get into question mode when you get an objection, and why you need to write down every problem and how you solved it. Towards the end of the show, we discussed why it’s important for agents to be willing to let the deal go.

Melinda and Daniel also spoke about;

  • How to get out of judgment and into curiosity
  • How old school methods can actually be new school
  • Time and energy vampires and why you need to avoid them

 What makes a deal successful is the agent’s ability to set expectations from the start. Your goal is to make the people you work with forever clients, and that means being valuable and being of service. If there’s anything old school that transcends the test of time, it’s the face to face interaction that builds trust and believability. Make sure you don’t sign on with clients that will be time and energy vampires. If it’s overpriced, if they don’t want to stage, if they want to give a 30-day listing, if they are arguing about commission, and they have no motivation, ask yourself if you really want that listing.

Many agents show up to work and do everything but work. How does that get in the way of getting the results you want in your business? How do you counter this mindset with self-leadership? How can you maximize your prospecting time? On this episode, Michael Hellickson joins us to answer these questions and share his successful methods.

 Takeaways + Tactics

 You’re more efficient and effective when you take breaks.

 If you don’t have an assistant, you are one.

 Treat agents in the industry like you treat clients.

 ------------------------------

 At the start of the show, Michael shared the importance of being available for your family, and why rest makes you more efficient at the work you do. Next we talked about the importance of actually doing work when you show up to the office, and Michael shared the lesson he learned about treating agents well. Towards the end of the show he shared on why you need an assistant.

 Michael also spoke about;

  • How he managed to do 8-10 listing appointments a day
  • Why teams provide the best environment
  • The right people to take advice from

This is a voice to voice, face to face business. You have to be prepared to get in front of people and work to be effective at prospecting. Staying on track requires self-leadership, and a good system that not only tracks your database, but also segments it. Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t take ridiculously powerful technology to make a ridiculous amount of money. You just need to have systems and people in place to make you more hyper-efficient not more hyperactive.

How do you handle a person who tells you you’re too young or inexperienced? How do you improve your list building and actually make it easier for people to give you their email addresses? On this episode, Gene Volpe joins us to talk about the most common objections and how to overcome them.

-------------------------------

Takeaways + Tactics

Listing building: create a lead magnet strong enough to capture people’s information.

FSBOs are never going to like you, they’re trying to avoid you in the first place.

If you’re new, partner with someone who has the seniority you’re looking for.

----------------------------------------

At the start of the show, we talked about handling objections about being too young or inexperienced. We also talked about the importance of confidence, and how to deal with FSBOs. We also answered questions about people who have family or friends who are in real estate, and why it’s important to add value.

-----------------------------------

We also spoke about;

  • Improving your list building
  • Why it’s important to know your market
  • How to deal with someone who isn’t ready to move

The art of handling objections comes down to how quickly you can think on your feet, and turn the objection into a chance for you to really bring value to people. It’s all about being confident in that unique thing that you bring to the table, whatever makes you stand out is something you can leverage. It’s all about the value-adds and leave-behinds.

A lot of things in real estate have changed and marketing is one of them. How does this relate to how agents generate seller leads? Why is it so necessary to get over the fear of knocking on doors? How do you get in front of people consistently? On this episode, we are joined by Matt Lamont, who shares some great industry knowledge, data and tips.

-----------------------------------

Takeaways + Tactics

You have to market your business, word of mouth is not enough.

A lot of things in prospecting have a lot to do with fear.

87% of FSBOs end up failing.

-----------------------------------

At the start of the show, we answered a question on creating a great packet for a FSBO, and Matt Lamont told us the most important thing is to be an advisory asset. He also talked about the power of getting over fear, and why success has a lot to do with knocking on doors and seeing people face to face. Towards the end of the show, Matt shared how agents can start using their system.

-----------------------------------

Matt also spoke about

  • Why marketing is all about repetition
  • Data and how to use it
  • Why word of mouth isn’t enough

-----------------------------------

Successful marketing is all about repetition, and people seeing you more than once. When it comes to getting listings, it’s very important to lose the fear of knocking on doors and getting in front of people. The most effective system is a combination of direct mail and door knocking. If you want to invest in Benutech, put 6 months worth of savings away for mailers so you can be consistent without running out of money.  If you get over your fear and become an advisory asset for people, you can not only generate leads, you can actually convert them at a high level.

Agents constantly want to buy more leads, even though they aren’t converting the ones they already have. What is the maximum number of leads an agent can handle and get the most out of? What is swarm marketing and how does it work? On this episode, Buddy Blake joins us for a high-level conversation about relationships, succession plans, and getting the most out of leads.

Takeaways + Tactics

Real estate agents get their skill sets and paychecks confused.

Taking an ISA or assistant, the least paid person and putting them in the most important port of contact is a mistake.

When you leave a team, no matter who you are, you are going to go down before you come up.

--------------------------------

At the start of the show, Buddy shared how he got started, and the mistakes agents make. We also talked about the power of impression points and how to use swarm marketing to hit people from multiple angles. Buddy also talked about the succession plan when someone leaves a team, and why cutting down on leads can make people more productive.

--------------------------------

We also spoke about;

  • How many leads agents should really have
  • The power of scaling up relationships
  • How you learn more though relationships
  • Why you can’t be a good listing agent till you’re a good buyer’s agent

Swarm marketing is all about creating multiple impression points and communicating with them the way they came in. If you’re looking at scaling, scale the relationship first, then look at scaling by adding leverage and automation. The role of first contact with the lead is a very important one, and it should be taken on by someone who brings the most value. The thing that will always be the most effective is the relationship.
