We Have a New Office. Now We Need New Agents



I am pleased to announce the opening of the 2nd Carbutti Realtors office
right here in downtown Branford, CT. (707 Main St.) and a short walk from
the town green. We’re beautifully renovating a great first-floor space to make
this an office of the future for the agents here along the shoreline.
We will be open for business as of December 1.


Right now, we’re looking for five to 10 brand-new team members to
join us. If you’re interested in increasing your business in 2019 and learning
a new, different, and more productive way of doing real estate, give me a call
or send me an email today so we can set up a confidential interview.

If you have any other questions in the meantime, don’t hesitate to reach out.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.

The Importance of Referrals



Today we'll be discussing the best technique for getting referrals

Today, I wanted to speak to some of the newer agents in the marketplace about the importance of referrals. The house behind me is actually the fourth referral that I’ve received from the same past client in the last 12 months. The reason I’m bringing this up is that I’ve seen many real estate gurus encourage new agents to buy internet leads or reach out to cold contacts. What I’ve found is most effective, however, is to cultivate your sphere of influence. Creating raving fans is what will allow you to get multiple referrals from the same past clients.

If you want to know how to cultivate your sphere of influence, please give me a call or send me an email. We’re opening our second office on December 1, 2018, and we’d love for you to join our team.

A Success Story Worth $50,000



Get stories like this under your belt so can start telling them and show your future clients your past successes.

What makes me really proud to be in the real estate industry? Success stories like the one I am going to share with you today.

Get stories like this under your belt so can start telling them and show your future clients your past successes.

Consultative approaches can be a great thing. When clients listen, everybody wins.

My client is 74 years old and has owned his home for 36 years. Recently, he had a neighbor approach him about purchasing the home for $190,000. He considered the offer and actually almost sold his home to the neighbor.

However, he met with our real estate team and we went through the home with him. We told him that he could sell it for that amount, but if he cleaned it out, painted it, and refinished the hardwood floors, he would get a lot more money.

The client decided to listen to us. He had the place professionally cleaned and refinished the floors. It may have been a lot of work moving out the nine dumpsters’ worth of stuff from the upstairs, but within 48 hours we had 25 showings and were in a five-offer multiple offer situation. We ended up getting him $50,000 more than what the neighbor was offering.

Get stories like this under your belt so you can start telling the stories, or have old clients tell your story to show future clients your success. There is nothing more powerful than social proof.

If you are not using video or professional photography with the latest and greatest marketing, contact me by phone or email. I would be happy to speak with you about moving from being an amateur to a professional. It is time for you to go pro.

The Value of Reading “The Resilience Roadmap” by Danny Morel

“The Resilience Roadmap” by Danny Morel is a book that can help you reach the level of success you desire. 

If you’ve never heard of or haven’t read the book “The Resilience Roadmap” by Danny Morel, I highly recommend that you read it.

I don’t think there’s another real estate agent or broker in the business who’s gone through more trials and tribulations than Danny to get where he is today. I also think there’s not another person who’s more involved on a daily basis in his agents’ success.

Your success is based on your routine.

“The Resilience Roadmap” challenges you look at your mindset and your daily activity and make a routine for success. What he argues (and I agree with) is your success is based on your routine. If you don’t have a daily routine of doing the exact same things every day, practicing your skill sets, and getting better every day, you won’t reach the level of success you’re looking for.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this book, so feel free to text me or send me an email about it. If you have any other questions, I invite you to reach out to me as well. I look forward to hearing from you.
