  • Sharpen You Skills

    17/04/2020 Duración: 31min

    During this Sales Meeting we will discuss ways to market your business, promote your properties and bring value to your clients. Shelter in Place is forcing us all to do things we should have adopted weeks, months or even years ago.Real Estate is changing. Technology isn't taking the place of real estate agents, but it is making those agents and real estate firms who embrace technology able to sell more homes and in a shorter period of time. Here’s what we know about our Business. Real Estate is currently classified as an “essential service” and neither state has issued an order to classify the Real Estate industry as a “Non-Essential” business. You may continue working as you have been these past few weeks. Just be careful and use good judgement. "Four short words sum up what lifted most successful individuals above the crowd: a little bit more. They did all that was expected of them and......a little bit more."  - A.

  • Referral Marketing: Why do we give referrals?

    07/05/2019 Duración: 20min

    According to Larry Kendall and Scott Degraffenreid, we give referrals to LOOK GOOD. Did you know that a face to face referral has an 80% success rate when compared to advertising? This incidence of consideration is a term that addresses how often you defer to a referral or piece of advertising when considering a purchase. Statistics show that when someone suggests something to you, you will consider that suggestion the next time you have an opportunity to buy or use that product 80% of the time. This is INCREDIBLE!!!!!!   With thousands of attempts to capture our attention each day, the only way to break through is with a personal referral. 

  • Emotional Intelligence for REALTORS

    Great Realtors come in all shapes and sizes. Some are reserved and analytical, while others shout their messages from the mountaintops. Different situations call for different styles. But the best Realtors all have a high degree of emotional intelligence. This is the ability to monitor your feelings and those of others and to use that information to guide your thinking and behavior. Today we’ll talk about emotional intelligence, a vital quality for every leader. The author, psychologist Daniel Goleman, studied leaders at nearly 200 global companies. His findings, published in Harvard Business Review,  will help you recognize emotional intelligence in yourself and your employees and assess people’s leadership potential.Watch the presentation on YouTube:
