One of Warren Buffet's sayings that is incredibly relevant to realtors right now is, "Only when the tide goes out do you discover who's swimming naked."

Would You Work For 5%?

Learn more from the episode here: https://therealtyclassroom.com/podcast/would-you-work-for-5

Most real estate agents don’t understand that as independent contractors they can build a business that focuses on them as the owner/investor first and they should automatically pay themselves 5% off the top off each commission into a savings account that is then swept into an investment account that takes advantage of compound interest growth. Grow your discipline to think like the owner first

Chasing whimsical leads on the internet so that you can brag about your huge database isn't doing your real estate business any good. It's just not.

Let's do deep dive on how to clean up your list and do more with far less contacts in your database!

Are you actually managing your business? Or, are you abdicating that responsibility and hoping it all works out while never fully taking charge?

In this episode, I'll let you know how to unleash your inner "Manager" personality in order to take charge of your business.

Your ideal client in real estate -- your "avatar" -- is absolutely critical. Why? Because once you narrow down that ideal client within a geographic range, it becomes much easier to use targeted marketing to attract those clients.

In this episode, I go over moving from simple demographics into psychographics, in order to really hone in on your avatar and market to that person. The purpose of marketing, after all, is to go out and find those people (avatars) who will help you to achieve your financial goals.

"Take care of people. As long as they all have a reason and there's a high level of motivation, those are the basic psychographics that I think can at least create a successful opportunity." - Danny Griffin

We're all starting to sound the same way in the real estate business. We're cold calling people and we're all hammering them with the same points. What's bad about that? The consumer is noticing this and it's annoying them!

So, how do we break out of the pack and stop sounding live everyone else? How do you grow a unique business when we are really governed by universal principles in real estate? I dive into how some simple strategic planning can help you to be truly unique in this business.

"When they grind me up and sprinkle me a little bit in the ocean and a little bit up in the hills of the Rockies, I can be fulfilled. And that's what this is really about -- to live authentically." - Danny Griffin

In this episode of the Realty Classroom Podcast, I argue that time management is a real issue. Two issues, actually. First, when you're a new real estate agent, you don't understand that this is a business and not a job. You don't know what to do. Second, once you start to figure out that it's a business, you suddenly have too much to do.

Those are real issues and I feel your pain, and I'm here to help. BUT... there's a point where time management becomes an excuse. When that voice in your head starts to hold you back, that's when I'm most likely to start to get ornery with you, which is what happens in this podcast.

"We're hearing a piece of advice from somebody who's got the lab coat on, like the Doctor of Real Estate, and all of a sudden we assume that that's the answer. No! Think, people!" - Danny Griffin

Topics Covered on This Episode of the Realty Classroom Podcast:

➡ Time management solution 1: Find the truth about the real basics of this business
➡ Time management solution 2: Execute & refine
➡ Recommendation: Learn about the Japanese business philosophy known as "kaizen"
➡ Bonus section: Beware the shadow and get out in front of it

Getting in face to face situations with buyers and sellers is a much better way to run a real estate business, in my experience, than chasing whimsical digital leads. It's critical! So, how do we think strategically in order to come up with the fastest way to get into face-to-face conversations? That's the main focus of this episode, so buckle up.

Just 30 minutes before I recorded this, I was in a presentation with two sellers who were highly emotional in that situation. I explain how this situation became incredibly powerful and empowering, because I was ready to help them as much as I could through strategic planning I had done beforehand.

"No agent 'owns' an area, by the way. Go look up what percentage of a marketplace any top producer controls. It's smaller than you think. A LOT smaller." -- Danny Griffin

Topics on This Episode of the Realty Classroom Podcast:

  • The goal is face-to-face presentations -- so what's the fastest path to that goal?
  • Why I always study first and act second -- Strategy first!
  • How to influence and empower the decision-makers
  • How YOU can get face to face as quickly as possible -- what really works best for you?

In this episode, I once again approach a strategic way to run your real estate business. Get up above your business and view it as an assembly line, much like Henry Ford's approach to making cars that revolutionized the business world. Ford's raw materials were steel, rubber and so on.

As real estate professionals, our raw materials are people -- buyers, sellers and for Broker Owners, a third group which is agents. Those are your three avatars as we go through today's message on creating three individual funnels for them.

Listen for tips on how to get those funnels up and running as a repeatable, strategic way of running your real estate business.

In this episode I wanted to talk about how I simplified my own listing presentations (and why), and how you can do the same thing. If you haven't really thought about it in this way yet, here's an important point -- and let this sink in: Your listing presentation begins with your marketing.

And it doesn't matter what medium you use for your marketing, whether it's a YouTube video, Facebook post, direct mail or some other form. All of your marketing should tie into your "Seven Steps" method, so you are constantly educating the seller about the process. By the time you arrive at their home with this message, you've already done a listing presentation in chunks!

Topics on This Episode of the Realty Classroom Podcast:

➡ Give the sellers what they want in your marketing. Give away your best stuff for free.
➡ Also include what they need: Your guidance and insight through a complicated process. Let them know they need it.
➡ Why keeping your "Show & Tell" chunked up helps you win at the listing presentation.

In this episode, I talk about the skills that you need to develop that fit directly into the strategies that I've been sharing with you in previous shows. In the last episode, I talked about Marketing and Conversion strategies.

Here I share with real estate agents the skills that they must develop to effectively carry out those strategies.

For example, copywriting is one of the skills I recommend to improve your marketing. A copywriter spends their life thinking about their audience. Who is your ideal client? Once they figure that out, they craft the message of how they can help that person. Spoiler alert: When you think like a copywriter, you realize that the message is not about YOU!

So, join me for some great discussion on the skills you need to be a better and more strategic real estate agent.
