What a blast having Mike Bjorkman on the show! He’s my first guest as I make my comeback into the podcast realm and I think he was the perfect choice. You are definitely in for a treat because we packed this episode full of great insights into the direction our industry is headed.
Where do you see real estate going? So many changes have happened in the 20+ years both Mike and I have been in the business. We both remember a time when we had to break out those Thomas guides to get directions when showing property! The internet has drastically … (1 comments)

real estate coaching real estate mentor success in real estate marguerite crespillo real estate real world: Irene Hammond | Making a Niche Work For You - 12/06/17 05:34 PM
It was so fun having long time realtor and author of the book, “Retirement Isn’t Boring: When You Live in an Active Adult Community,” Irene Hammond on the show! She shared some fantastic insight into her real estate specialty, the over 55 communities, and why it has been proven so profitable for her.
Finding a niche can be so beneficial within the real estate industry. It not only sets you apart, but makes you recognizable for buyers and referrals. When you have a specialty that you have truly dug your heels into, learned everything you can about it, and made it known … (0 comments)

real estate coaching real estate mentor success in real estate marguerite crespillo real estate real world: Nicole Mickle | Engage Socially, Grow Financially - 11/20/17 07:02 PM
What a great chat with real estate rock star, Nicole Mickle! As two women that have been in real estate for over 20 years, it was awesome getting to share our experiences and tricks we’ve learned over the years in this industry. One of the big differences we have both seen is the role social media has played in influencing the way we generate leads and how we use that to our advantage.
Social media is an AWESOME tool for promoting and advertising our business, ourselves, and our listings, but so often what we both hear real estate agents complaining about is … (0 comments)

real estate coaching real estate mentor success in real estate marguerite crespillo real estate real world: Master Gardener….NOT! - 09/27/17 03:44 PM
As a kid my mom always had a huge garden no matter where we lived (and we moved a lot).
But as a single mom she was always very resourceful and found ways for us to always have fresh vegetables and herbs and she would scour local markets and trade with other gardeners to get things she didn’t have.
In fact every summer she would go out to the fruit orchards and talk the farmers in to giving her as much fruit as she could pick and she would spend about every evening canning to prepare for winter.
I remember jars and jars of … (4 comments)

real estate coaching real estate mentor success in real estate marguerite crespillo real estate real world: Not just “Why”…What & How!!... - 09/20/17 08:01 AM
Ever really broke everything down and figured out your “Why”?
I had a chance to watch Tony Robbins a few years back and one of the
most memorable points he made, which is still fresh in my mind was:
 
What’s your why?...Why do you do, what you do?
 
He explained that he wasn’t there to “motivate” us, instead he wanted to help us answer the question: “Why do we do what we do” 
 
No, not just the money…not just the recognition…not “helping people” 
 
The REAL reason that helps us rationalize the long hours, time away from our family and the difficult situations we have to navigate in our … (1 comments)

It was so great having Linzee Ciprani, the founder of Ciprani Consulting - a recruiting and training company specializing in real estate, on my show! This company has big dreams for the real estate world and I have no doubt Linzee help will make those dreams a reality!
When it comes to building a great team, where do you start? So often we hire people for the wrong reasons – they’re family, they need a job, they’re your best friend…but we forget that this isn’t about what someone else needs, but what your business needs to succeed. What we need for our … (0 comments)

As the CEO & founder of NAWRB, The National Association of Women in Real Estate Businesses, she is making a difference for women in business everywhere.
65% of real estate agents are women, yet most of the leadership in this industry consists … (1 comments)

What a blast I had chatting with CEO of Your Realty Leverage, Brindley Tucker! She is such a kick! Her passion for life along with training, coaching, and hiring the right people to help you increase your productivity as you grow your business in real estate, mirrored everything I believe to be important when shooting for that next level.
Brindley hears one of two things when realtors discuss hiring an admin – I don’t have time to find help or I can’t afford to find help. You have to MAKE the time or your business will never grow. It is impossible to … (0 comments)

real estate coaching real estate mentor success in real estate marguerite crespillo real estate real world: Jennifer Diepstraten | Know Your Worth! - 04/12/17 10:18 AM
What an amazing conversation with powerhouse sales expert, Jennifer Diepstraten. Jennifer took her expertise and experience in sales and started her own coaching business where she helps entrepreneurs grow and improve their personal businesses.
Have you ever thought about charging more money for your services? What stops you? As Jennifer shared, most of her clients start to internally question their personal value, they worry no one will pay the higher price, and they ultimately fear the amount of business they will lose if they raise their rates. In reality, WE are the ones who are uncomfortable with the higher price, not the … (0 comments)

Another GREAT podcast episode with the one and only, Steve Jolly! Since we last spoke in 2016, he has taken his business to bigger and better heights. Now an author of the book, “Kill Cold Calls: How to Generate a Six-Figure Income like Direct Marketing Legends without Cold Calls,” is an incredible read and worth every penny.  His insight into tackling the marketing aspect of our business without having to make those awful, awkward, and dread-worthy cold calls while still bringing in substantial and profitable leads is brilliant!

real estate coaching real estate mentor success in real estate marguerite crespillo real estate real world: International Women's Day - 03/08/17 02:55 PM
I was raised by a single mom. I remember my mom getting up before us, making breakfast, making us lunches, doing laundry, cleaning house, getting us out the door and off to school…
All before she got dressed and went off to work.
This was before cell phones and technology. This was before junk food and fast food restaurants. In fact she never bought any of that because it was too expensive and we lived on a very limited budget.
My mom was also the local flop house for friends that needed a couch to crash on. Always had extra people at the dinner … (3 comments)

What a pleasure speaking with this week’s guest, Jeff Lobb! As a real estate coach, founder and CEO of SparkTank Media, a growth strategy company that focuses on technology, sales, and marketing for real estate, mortgage, and title industries, Jeff touched on some of the problems agents face that is keeping them from achieving that next level and as a fellow coach, I couldn’t agree with him more.
So much of our day, as agents, is trying to do it all ourselves. There are only so many hours in the day and never enough time to do it all. We all know … (0 comments)

Mitch Stephen is a real estate investor, educator, and author of three books. I love his book entitled “My Life & 1,000 Houses: Failing Forward to Financial Freedom.” The term ‘failing forward’ is so true for all of us! We learn the most from our failures. We figure out what not to do, what doesn’t work for us personally, and how to do it better the next time. We are all striving to find our niche, the right track that will lead us to success. Mitch made an excellent point – so many people try to master every angle of this … (3 comments)

On an Adventure!
 
Dear Friends,
Last month I wrote about my word for the year… Explore! Then I sat down and started thinking about what that really meant.
Joe is off doing his own exploring on his comedy circuit which is fun, but I’m not the night bird that I use to be since I have been going to the gym at 4:30 in the morning.
Being empty nesters now we find we have a lot of time on our hands and I thought instead of spending hours on social media I would reach out to my friends for ideas on fun stuff that … (3 comments)

I know all too well how crazy this time of year can be.
I remember when my boys were little and how I had to have everything perfect.
I would run myself ragged trying to get it all done. And be so stressed out that I wouldn’t even enjoy the holidays.
I remember one Christmas eve having what seemed like a nervous breakdown when I realized I had forgotten to take the Turkey out of the freezer the day before and it was solid as a rock.
I burst into tears knowing for sure that Christmas was ruined and it was all my fault. All … (1 comments)

Each year around this time, I sit and reflect on the past year and make plans for the upcoming year.
I used to do extensive goals and plans for one year, three year and more and a couple years ago I read a book that I talked about in 2014 called One Word by Jon Gordon and decided from that point forward I would only focus on ONE word.
In 2014 it was HOME, 2015 was CHANGE and boy did we have a ton of changes!
Jake and Jon are now BOTH living down in Carlsbad by my brother Vince and his family … (4 comments)

Ryan Lundquist is a certified appraiser in the Sacramento area and a GREAT connection as he runs the Top Appraisal Blog in the United States.

There is value in trusting the numbers and letting them support your opinions when discussing price value with your clients. Ryan shares how you can … (0 comments)
