Do You Need or Want a Team?

Education & Training with Real Estate Grad School

I just completed a workshop on working with teams, it seems obvious that there is a lot of need out there for good coaching and intelligence on all the topics around assistants, buyer specialists and teams. 
There are so many questions to be asked. The one I hear the most is "I think I need a team but I am not sure"
If you think you need some help then you probably do.
There are many facets to starting, maintaining and building a team. First you must decide who to hire first. Admin person or Buyer Specialist. Then you must write a comprehensive job description for that position. You must find and hire the right person. Then how do you compensate, motivate and supervise that person? As you might have guessed, it is not that simple. So many Agents struggle alone rather than hire just one part time person that could drastically send their business to new levels.
When I help someone build a successful team it takes understanding their business, both myself and the Real Estate Agent.  We look at all aspects of their business then create a job description that compliments the Agent's strengths and weaknesses.  Then we have to advertise and locate that assistant that possess the skills we are looking for.  We work with the Agent on reviewing resume's and conducting phone interviews.  We do DISC behavior assessments on the final candidates before they do personal interviews.  We help structure checklists and teach them how to conduct regular accountability meetings to monitor progress and ensure success.
We do all of this and more in our coaching sessions. The point is with a little guidance you too can start your own team. So if you have been thinking about starting a team. Now is just as good as any. For more information about our coaching program visit
