Inman Next just did an intimate video interview with one of the nations most visible REALTORS® on what it takes to succeed in today's market. Katie Lance captured some awesome pointers and wisdom from one of the top celebrity luxury real estate agents in the Country.

Gary Gold, Premier Agent and personal friend, shares his insights, tips, and experience with other agents.

"Knowing your market makes all the difference. Gary Gold, EVP of Hilton & Hyland and star on HGTV’s hit show, “Selling L.A.” is poised to complete 42 transactions this year and he does this with a small team. How? Maintaining a great website, vetting leads and going to where the buyers are..." read more...

In this interview, one of the comments and suggestions Gary makes is to "Gain a new technological skill everyday - or become obsolete!" Are you just marketing how bad you are? Can you legitimize who you are?


If you're really serious about your real estate business and your online strategy for today's market, you better watch and listen for the next 4 minutes to what he has to say and share.

Brad operates a business and out sources tasks and services that his team can't or won't do, so securing a network of professional resources is essential in today's market, especially if marketing luxury executive properties. Building a network of skilled professionals requires time and opportunities, yet must be done, regardless. Thanks for sharing your perspective, I agree.

I liked the way he said he does as much for a 2 million house as for a 20 million house!  Geesh!  In Arkansas we'd say do as much for a $40000 house as for a $200000 house.  LOL

Brad, Great video to share and great message...learn one new tech skill a day. That seems to be the way to stay up with all the new stuff.

42 transactions may not sound like much to Kevin, but when his lowest price property is $2M...well you do the math!

Kevin - congratulations on your success.  I'm looking forward to your video sharing your tips and secrets too.  In my honest opinion, it's not about quantity as much as it is the quality which to me is the real reward. Quality always turns into qantity over time.

Larry - excellent point my friend. Cultivate, Capture, Convert to Clients are the key fundamentals.  The tech tools have changed the game, but not the key fundamentals.

Barbara - I know Gary, I've been out with him while working. He treats every property and every client like they are the only person on earth and gives them his full attention and focus regardless of home price.  His marketing isn't about price as much as it is the results and the experience.

Margaret - seems almost impossible to keep up with all the new technology that comes out each day. Finding and implementing just one should actually be pretty easy time permitting. Always great to hear from you, thanks for stopping by to comment. Miss ya :)
