How it All Started...
I hate selling!
Did you know I was fired — yes FIRED from my first sales job at Radio Shack? And for a long time, I struggled as a real estate agent. For years I was “playing the numbers game”, prospecting for hours every single day, "closing" and doing all that stuff. And I was BROKE.
More than broke — I was on the street. Literally, sleeping in my car. Talk about hitting rock bottom. But you know, somehow I knew there had to be a better way. Easier, friendlier, and more effective way to find people who want to buy or sell, to contact them, to communicate with them like a human being, and to still turn them into loyal customers and clients… Regardless of the market or the economy.
I had enough.
It was either quit and get a "real" job or make it work. That was my turning point and I went on a quest to master this crazy business. How to get prospects' attention, how to gain their trust and how to turn them into clients, get paid for my work – and actually feel good about myself and being a real estate agent.
By following the Formula, in less than a year I owned a nice condo with pool and tennis courts, a brand-new car… Three weeks on a fantastic vacation in Europe (Venice, Vienna, and the Adriatic Coast). I was getting good listings, selling homes, and finally making money. Sounds almost like a Hollywood movie, doesn’t it?
Going from this...
…to this in a few months!
Now, please understand, I'm not showing you this to impress you, but to show you how quickly you can change your business (and your life) around.
Real Estate Systems
I finally had a system for getting leads, following up with them, and turning them into listings and sales. I've used it for years and I would like to teach them to you.
Yes, this stuff works! It has worked for me and made me wealthy (and happy!), and it’s working right now for the agents I’ve taught. No matter what market you’re in, what age you are, or how many years of experience you have… Anybody – ANYBODY can learn these techniques. Not only will the formulas work for you, but rest assured, as your coach, I will deliver everything you need to put it to work in your business.
You can have:
A solid inventory of saleable homes
Motivated, nice sellers and buyers who appreciate you and who like working with you (I know, sounds almost impossible, right?)
Plenty of well-priced listings
Nice commissions every single week
Enjoy the business without stress and worries
The question is HOW? By using the right tools and the right systems.
The Real Estate Systems
1. Expired PLUS 2.0
You've heard it before, I'm sure: "Expired listings are probably the easiest and fastest way to get listings." True. BUT...
Only if you know how to approach them, what to do, what to say, what to mail them... Otherwise you'll just have some angry folks slamming their phone (or their door) on you. Not fun. So here is a complete system on how to go from an expired listing to a lead and listing - fast!
