From Frustration to Lasting Success

Carol Cried

When we started to work together Carol cried every time that we had a coaching call. 

She was struggling despite making a decent income in Real Estate in addition to the modest salary that her husband earned as a manager of an auto parts store. Four young adult children with tuitions, travel, weddings, showers, enjoyment, and helping them get started; was expensive. His income was fixed. She knew that it was up to her to raise their income. 

Carol’s story is, unfortunately, a common one. 

Real Estate Agents learn the basics of the business, begin to enjoy the commissions and freedom. After just a few years they plateau. They get stuck at an unsatisfactory level of income. Still knowing that there is so much more potential and they are capable of achieving it. Yet, it eludes them.

There is a Way Out of the Real Estate Production Plateau

Maria Sharapova, the Champion Tennis Player, and Entrepreneur wrote in her book Unstoppable:

“Repetition creates discipline. Just repeating a thing, perhaps inconsistently at first, then with more consistency creates a feeling of the repetition that leads to discipline.”

Steven was an Agent with a wife, three children with a fourth child on the way. He told me that he wasn’t earning enough to afford his life. He said that what stood in his way was a lack of discipline. 

I explained to Steven that discipline is a learned skill. Discipline is learned through repetition. Everyone can become more disciplined with simple repetition. 

Three years later Steven had two more children (yes, that is six in total) and a Real Estate Sales income that provides his family with the life he wishes for them. That learned discipline added hundreds of thousands of dollars to his income each year.

Doing the right things correctly and consistently is the key to income breakthrough for Real Estate Agents. Any Agent can develop discipline, through repetition, by doing the right things, that work, consistently. 

The things you do consistently have to achieve results in attitude, confidence, and quality of life in addition to significantly more income. The key is to know and do those specific, correct things that quickly produce results. 

What are those few simple, smart things that Carol, Steven, and many other Agents are doing to quickly produce results?

Four Simple, Uncommon Habits That Quickly Produce Results for Real Estate Agents

Below is the system we refer to at Real Estate Grad School (and you may have heard on our podcast) as The Income Breakthrough Daily Routine.

  1.      Start each workday with 10 minutes of structured planning
  2.      Set Goals and Track the 4 KPI’s (Key Performance Indicators) for Real Estate Agents
  3.      Be completely conscientious with lead and past Client follow up using your CRM
  4.      Create and complete all the items on a simple Marketing Calendar

Winning Ugly is Still Winning

Kevin hired me to coach him when we met at my speaking presentations at the NAR convention in 2007. At that point, he was selling between 40 and 50 houses per year with an administrative assistant. We have coached together ever since.

Today, Kevin is an extremely successful Agent in a small city in the Midwest. Last year he sold over 470 properties and a massively successful team.

The first year as he was putting the Income Breakthrough Systems in place, they were far from perfect. Despite that his income increased by more than 50%. When an Agent is working on the right discipline and routine, they see significant results from the beginning. 

That is inspiring and it inspired him to continue to review and apply the Income Breakthrough Routine each day.  

The following year he became more consistent in implementing daily structured planning, tracking progress toward his goals. being very conscientious with his CRM, and following through on his Marketing Calendar. 

His income increased, again the second year, by more than 50%. 

The following year he sold over 100 homes for the first time. He began to build a team and led them to follow the Income Breakthrough Routine. 

Today, Kevin is the top Agent in his market and one of the best in his State.

So what is your real estate experience?  I have had some peer coaching which I found amazingly helpful.  But I had some "let me tell you how to do what I have never actually done" coaching which I felt in the end was theft because I got nothing actually useful from it.

Tammy, to answer you directly. I was a top Agent for 5 years, then built the number one Real Estate Company in Rochester New York for over a decade.  My background is teaching and coaching (tennis professional and a first-grade teacher). So, I quickly gained a reputation for developing very successful Agents. That is my passion, so over 10 years ago, I began full-time coaching and training. Most of my Clients grow their business by large numbers very quickly. If you like, let's schedule what we call a free business analysis session where I can learn more about your business. So, that I can share with you exactly what we would do if we coached, to make the biggest quickest difference in your business. I'd look forward to it. May I have my Business Partner who is also my wife, Chava, call you to set a time for us?
