I expect all of our team to exceed expectations.

When I started Cornerstone, I started to take on a bunch of Realtors from the former office I worked in that had closed, and then I realized that most of those agents didn't do anything then, why would that change now? So, I decided to go it alone.

I had an opportunity to start a real estate school late last year.  With that school, I realized that I could pick and choose the talent I wanted to attract, and that is what I've done.  My goal with bringing on new agents is to build superstars.  I don't need a wall of agent licenses hanging in my office, but I am more than happy to see agents come on board who are going to shake up the local real estate market and succeed.

Recently, I brought on the first of those agents. There will be more, but Adam Martin is the first. I expect to see Adam become a top producer over the next year.  I believe Adam, and all of those who will link with me and Cornerstone will be exceptional.  The following video is where I know all of our will team go. Enjoy, and excel.

Mike, a beautiful, powerful and inspiring video. Thank you very much for sharing (I needed that)! No doubt in my mind that Adam will be a top producer quickly - your guidance + his determination = success!

I really believe he will be, Andrea.  I'm training him one on one.  So, I trust that I can help him avoide common mistakes.

Hi Mike.  Good for you.  Fogging up a mirror is not a great hiring method.

Conrad, you might have just revealed the hiring practices of some brokers I know.  

I hope so, James.  He's new, so hopefully, he's enough of a blank slate to learn the trade well.

Good morning Mike. So you own a Real Estate School too. You are amazing!. Never knew you were a one man band but I always liked your music. I am sure Adam will be in a good place with you as his teacher and mentor. his bigger is better mentality never ever made sense to me either. Suggested.

I agree, stay small at first. One productive agent is better than five coffee drinkers.

Thanks, Kristin.  

Doug, I came from an office of 25 with less than 5 doing all of the work.  So, I figured there was no sense in providing a hub for that coffee clutch.  8=)

Thanks, Lisa.
