The Rookie Series - Ten Secrets to Looking as if You've Done This Before!
Last August I held a 3-hour workshop in Denver called "The Confident Rookie - Ten Secrets to Looking as if You've Done this Before!" Fun time, good crowd.
For whatever reason, my inbox & forum have been flooded lately with questions from new and newer agents on many of the topics I covered in this presentation, so what the heck? I'll do a blog series here on the Rain and score some easy points ;-]
A little disclaimer... despite the title of the series; I'm not going to tell rookies how to trick their clients or prospects into believing that they're a competent real estate agent, capable of handling someone's real estate needs, so that they'll allow the rookie to practice on them and learn what he's doing.
