If you have been reactionary, you’re missing out on everything that is in front of you – and it could be hurting your business. Taking the time to consider what is to come in your business, in your clients’ experience, and in the world around you, is crucial to building out a plan that will set you up for success.
We spend too much time planning for today, and basing those plans on the things we have seen – which in many cases can be useful – does not allow us to fully take advantage of the opportunities which may lie ahead. Having foresight is about creativity, an ear to the ground, and a willingness to take chances – in this episode, we dive right into it.
It’s time to level up your foresight.
We all want every transaction and relationship to go smoothly – but let’s be real, there are always little issues that keep us from reaching absolute perfection. That’s totally ok, but we need to understand that it isn’t up to us to be the conductor of every aspect of every deal.
One of the biggest anxiety drivers for Realtors is the feeling that they don’t have control of a situation. The truth is, you won’t have control over every situation, and you shouldn’t. In this episode, we deconstruct the ways to identify when you need to take control, when you need to let go, and how to do it.
The job doesn’t always go exactly to script, but your happiness (or lack thereof) will likely depend on the way you deal with things when they do go sideways.
It’s time to level up your control.
When you can be a hero for your colleagues, your job is so much easier.
Sometimes it is easy to overlook the fact that helping the person you are dealing with, will in fact make the deal much easier for you. You have to understand what your colleagues need to make their lives easier, and if you can provide that, it will serve you well in your own career.
This week we talk about some things you can do to level up how you work with (and for) the Realtors across the table from you. Don’t just treat them how you want to be treated, position them for success – because their success is also yours.
It’s great to land a new client, you’re excited, and you get to find a purchaser their next property – but is it always a happy ending? Are there things you should consider before diving head first with EVERYONE who reaches out?
This episode, we talk about the warning signs you can preempt by getting your red flag radar up. Your time is valuable, and you have to be disciplined and aware of the things that can get in the way of that valuable time. It’s time to level up your ability to detect and deal with the clients who may not be what you’re expecting.
In real estate, there is little that is more important than appropriate valuation of properties. Whether working with a buyer who needs guidance on the market, or pitching a seller on what their place should receive, your ability to break down the value of a property is pivotal to your own worth to a potential client.
Let’s face it, you’re a professional, and you need to be confident, aware, and able to communicate the things that will allow your client to fully understand the real estate environment they are in.
This week we jump into how you can level up your own valuation game. Why is it important? How should you approach it? What different situations can you expect, and how should you deal with them?
This is a great precursor to preparing your listing presentations, and a solid reminder that your own value is very much built on your ability to share your knowledge and expertise with your clients. It’s time to level up you valuations.
When it comes to branding, too much attention is given to the look, but not much else. Brand is definitely what people see, but it is even more important that it determines what people FEEL. What are people thinking when they hear your name or see your logo?

It’s time to level up your brand.
You’ve set goals, you know what you want to accomplish…but on a long road, there are distractions, excuses, and ‘easy outs’ along the way. In this episode, we talk all about how important it is to stay committed to your path, and how to keep yourself ‘fueled’ to continue where many others give up.
Stick to it, it’s worth it.

The number one thing we hear from new salespeople is ‘where do I get my leads?’ While that’s a valid question, it isn’t the most important one.
Sourcing leads is valuable, having a long list of names to call is great…but a lead is useless if you don’t know what to do with them. In this episode, we’re focusing specifically on the inbound leads you’ll get through your online sources.

Not every lead will amount to business, but every lead only can become business if you approach them the right way.
It’s time to level up how you deal with your inbound leads.
