Real Estate Broker/Owner with SharkeyRE LLC CQ1040719

Samantha had always been passionate about real estate. She loved the thrill of finding the perfect home for her clients, and the satisfaction of helping them navigate the complex process of buying or selling a property. After several years of working as an agent, she decided to branch out on her own and start her own real estate agency.

At first, things went well. Samantha worked hard to build her client base and her reputation, and her business began to thrive. She hired a team of agents and started to expand her offerings, including property management and investment services.

However, as her business grew, Samantha began to take on too much. She was so focused on expanding and taking on new clients that she neglected her existing ones. Her team of agents became overwhelmed and struggled to keep up with the demand, and her reputation started to suffer.

One day, Samantha received a call from a former client. The client had been unhappy with the service they had received from Samantha's agency, and had decided to work with a different agent instead. Samantha was devastated. She had always prided herself on her commitment to her clients, and the thought of letting someone down was unbearable.

But instead of giving up, Samantha decided to use this experience as a lesson. She took a step back and reevaluated her priorities. She realized that she had been so focused on growth that she had forgotten what was most important: providing excellent service to her clients.

Samantha made some changes to her business. She retrained her agents to focus on customer service, and implemented new processes to ensure that every client received the attention they deserved. She started to prioritize quality over quantity, and worked to rebuild her reputation in the community.

Over time, Samantha's business began to thrive once again. Her clients were happy, and her team of agents was more productive and fulfilled than ever before. Samantha had learned from her mistakes, and had used the seeds of failure to grow a stronger, more successful business.


Samantha's real estate agency continued struggling for some time. She had tried various strategies to improve her team's customer service, but nothing seemed to be working. She was beginning to feel like she was running out of options.

One day, Samantha attended a business conference where she heard a speaker talk about the benefits of accountability coaching. The speaker explained that accountability coaching involved hiring a coach who would work with each team member individually to help them set and achieve their goals.

Samantha was intrigued. She realized that accountability coaching could be just what her team needed to turn things around. She decided to implement the new process of hiring an accountability coach for each team member.

At first, some of the team members were skeptical. They were unsure what to expect from an accountability coach, and some felt uncomfortable with the idea of someone monitoring their progress. But Samantha explained that the coach was there to support and encourage them, not to judge them.

As the weeks went by, Samantha began to see a significant improvement in her team's performance. Each team member had set clear goals and had a plan for achieving them. The accountability coach provided regular check-ins and support, helping team members stay on track and overcome any obstacles.

Samantha was amazed by the results. Her team was more motivated, more productive, and more focused than ever before. They were working together more effectively, and their customer service had improved dramatically.

The new process of hiring an accountability coach had transformed Samantha's real estate agency. She realized that sometimes, all it takes is a little outside support and guidance to achieve great things. She was grateful for the speaker at the business conference who had introduced her to this powerful tool, and she was excited to see what other positive changes lay ahead for her business.
