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

Takeaways + Tactics

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.

We can prepare ourselves for this by looking at what you’re currently doing, and if it’s the most important work that moves the needle. The next stage is documenting everything.

You’ll learn about;

For many real estate team leaders, the job and the money they make comes with a high level of stress which destroys their quality of life. What are some of the biggest mistake agents make when it comes to the business models they built? Why is it so dangerous to be heavily invested in buying online leads? Why is the service we provide so critical to our success? On this episode, Real Estate B School founder and Business Freedom Podcast host, Lars Hedenborg joins us to talk about how he helps real estate teams run on the right models. 

A lot of teams aren’t set up on the right economic model or the right service model and most team leaders have to be in production because of those two things. -Lars Hedenborg  

Three Things We Learned

The problem with real estate teams 

Most real estate teams are held back by how they are built. They hire a collection of agents with no shared core values, they spend way too much money on marketing and they don’t focus on providing a good service. 

A strong business isn’t just about leads, it’s also about service

It’s not just about putting down money for leads, it’s also about the service you provide on the back end. Most teams could probably break even on online leads for a while, if they were also pairing that up with a strong commitment to repeat and referral business. 

Why it’s not wise to invest in mass advertising 

Real estate agents got drunk on the leads they were getting from Zillow, but just like all mass advertising nowadays, you’re paying a premium to reach unqualified, undifferentiated people. 

 

What business means to most real estate business owners is putting in a lot of hours, bringing tons of stress home to their families, and failing to increase their net worth. Unfortunately, running a business this way is unsustainable, especially if you’re heavily invested in online leads. To make a change, it might be necessary to reduce your transactions, start focusing on giving a high level of service, get marketing spend under 10% and work with agents who are willing to get a value-based commission.

A lot of Realtors don’t really understand where their business is coming from or who their main audience is, and many who are active on social media are not generating sales from it. What does it take to connect with people and build real relationships online? How can we get clients on social media without paying? How do we translate engagement and attention on social media into sales? In this episode, David Greenspan explains how we should be approaching social media to build our brand and give ourselves more opportunity.

If you’re on social media every day building a little bit of mindshare, the reality is the brand is building and you’re giving yourself more opportunity. -David Greenspan

Takeaways + Tactics

We have two main audiences: people we know and people we don’t know; and by continuing to build the relationships we have with people we can positively transform our business.

 

We need to be doing five things to build a good social media presence: make posts, like and react to other people’s posts, comment on other people’s posts, share other people’s posts, and send out friend requests or follow people.

 

We can best build relationships online by evoking emotion. It is the fun, silly, relatable content that generates responses, and we need to be having conversations in order to build relationships.

 

The types of education that are currently out there for Realtors teach a lot about the legalities and what to do when we sit down with a client, but they completely bypass how to get a client there in the first place. By consistently delivering the right message to the right audience via the right channel, we can have real conversations with people, take those conversations offline, and give ourselves more opportunity to make a sale.

One of the things that happens to many of us is that we set goals in our personal and professional lives but we find them in conflict. What is the core reason behind this conflict? How do we prioritize our goals? How do we overcome the stories we tell ourselves that hold us back? On this episode, we are joined by the Silicon Valley Coach, Kelly McCarthy, who talks about how to get more clarity and focus in our goal setting.

We can talk about goals all we want, but our internal ladder of values is actually what determines our behavior. -Matt Johnson  

Three Things We Learned

The cause of our goal conflicts

The reason people find their personal and professional goals in conflict is that they put every single value and goal on the same level. There is an order of importance in our goals and it plays out in everything we do.

The importance of slowing down to focus

People are natural doers and they can easily charge towards their goals, but very often what people need is to do a lot less and be. That means they have to slow down and focus.

The purpose of coaches

Learning your values and living into them creates new neural connections in your brain, it’s like building a muscle. It’s a new connection that needs to be strengthened. The coach holds you accountable for living into that value on a daily basis so it becomes who you are instead of it being an effort.  

 

When it comes to setting and achieving our goals, we often think we need to pile on more goals and take more action, but sometimes what we actually need to do is focus and slow down so that there’s clarity before any action is taken. It’s critical to take the time to figure out where your goals lie in order of priorities so that we stay true to our values. By taking the time to really think and feel what we want to do, whatever we do from there will be authentic.

Being an agent in the shifting market that exists today can be challenging, and the changes that are taking place are easier to ignore than to face and act on. How are iBuyers impacting our business? What can we do to integrate iBuyers into our own business? How does specialization and teamwork help us give better service and grow? In this episode, Verl Workman discusses lead generation, lead conversion, and iBuyers, and what we can do to compete with new challenges in our marketplace.

Tracking the right things, understanding your business, focusing on profitability and developing your people - that’s really the crux of running a successful business. -Verl Workman

Three Things We Learned

How to help clients feel at ease with our team

We think that we need to do every single thing for a transaction and that clients expect that of us, but consumers today are trained to deal with specialists. When we are clear that we are the main point of contact but that other specialists will be dealing with each level of the transaction, we create a better client experience.

How to make iBuyers part of our business

We can include advice on and negotiations with iBuyers in our contracts with sellers to assist them in the listing process. By doing so we can make the process more hassle free, and keep our seller’s transaction local rather than having to deal with online strangers at a national level.

Using systems that create freedom

When we look at our business as transactional, we are seeing it as an agent selling houses. We need to think about our business like a leader would by delegating what occupies most of our day, and by focusing on business development, people development and profitability.

 

Everybody likes to believe that iBuyers aren’t affecting them until they start losing listings to them. We need to lean in to market shifts and talk about them in order to continue to play a role in the transaction process. By working ourselves into every conversation that our consumer is a part of, we remain a part of it too. When we focus on the customer experience, work with a team of specialists and focus on profitability over cash flow, we make room for our business growth in a shifting industry.

While there are vast differences between what’s happening in the various high-end markets across the country, there are things that we can do to boost our sales regardless of our market. What is the state of high-end markets at the moment? How can staging and recommendations impact our probability of selling? How can we expand our pool of potential buyers? In this episode, Michael LaFido discusses what agents can do to maintain and grow their sales rate in a shifting high-end market.

7 out of 10 times there are things an agent could do that are within their control to position a home differently and more effectively. -Michael LaFido

Three Things We Learned

Dealing with open house objections

We have to cover one main area of objection when it comes to high-end open houses, and that is security. By bringing on more people to host the open house with us, asking for viewers’ identification details and advising the seller to put away valuables, we can better ensure a low-risk open house.

Growing our pool of potential buyers

By encouraging our sellers to let their personal networks know that they’re selling, and by sending the same message to their neighbors, we can increase the amount of potential buyers for the property. We can motivate sellers and neighbors by explaining how this will give them some control over who their buyer and new neighbor is.

Articulating recommendations without offending

Being able to articulate our staging advice to sellers without offending them is very important. Instead of saying it in a way that comes across as our personal opinion, we should explain why it makes sense from a market research perspective and how it will help their house sell.

 

In order to keep our sales rates steady and growing in a shifting high-end market, we need to be able to advise sellers on how to best position their property so that it gets the most views, clicks, and eyeball traffic. When advising, we should be careful of how we articulate our recommendations so as not to offend, and so that they understand what changes will help their property sell. We can reach more potential buyers by using social media effectively and tapping into sellers’ personal networks. In this way, we can compensate for some of the more prominent shifts in our market.
