Do you have a real estate coach?



Do you have a real estate coach?

Welcome back to my video blog! As you know, I am a firm believer in real estate coaching. When I first started my career, I thought I had to learn everything on my own.

The truth is there is plenty of people who can help you become a better agent and build your business. That’s why we want to create a mastermind group of 8-10 individuals. It doesn’t matter whom you work for. We’ll meet once a month to discuss strategies, concerns, failures, successes, etc.

If this is something you are interested in, please give me a call or send me an email! Thanks for watching!

Being the Best That You Can Be

 

Being the Best That You Can Be

Hey, guys! Welcome back to my video blog!

Today, I wanted to go over Mike Ferry’s concept of ‘Being the Best That You Can Be’ I’ve talked about Mike in past blog posts; he is a great real estate coach and has been a mentor to me.

These are some basic elements to his philosophy on being the best real estate agent.

1.    Blind faith in your coach. We’ve talked about this before, but it’s important to trust your coach.
2.    Forgetting past failures. Don’t dwell on mistakes you have made. Learn from them and move on!
3.    Positive support group. You need more than just a mastermind group, you need a girlfriend, spouse, family, etc. who support you.
4.    Set small achievable goals. Having large goals is important, but it’s the daily and weekly goals that get you there.
5.    Lookout for small victories. I especially like this one. Find the positive in each day.
6.    Where you came from doesn’t have to dictate where you are going. You are the master of your destiny.

These are just some of Mike Ferry’s points on being the best you can be. If you want to know more, please give me a call or email me!

The Success of Facebook Paid Advertising



The Success of Facebook Paid Advertising

Hey, guys. We are always looking for new ways to market ourselves. Well, last week I used Facebook in a way I never had before.

I’ve had a profile for my business for a number of years, but I had never created a paid advertisement. Last week, I created an ad for a new seller’s capture tool. The seller signs up and finds out the value of their home. In return, we get all their contact information. 

I created the target audience and it then posted to the right-hand side of their Facebook page.

Guess what? In the first 40 minutes I got a seller’s lead! She had a larger home, was remodeling the bathroom, didn’t have a mortgage and wanted to downsize to a condo.

Since last week, we’ve had seven seller’s leads and it was all from that Facebook ad that cost me less than $50.

I encourage you to check it out! If you are interested in finding out more about the ad I ran, please give me a call!
