Fair Housing Isn’t Enough: Report Shows Racial Disparity Fight Still Needs Support

The ABCs of Online Lead Management

For decades, real estate agents have been gathering leads from face-to-face events and referrals. With consumers going online in record numbers today, many agents aren’t all that excited about changing their strategy for securing online leads. But if you don’t do lead generation where most of the leads are, which is now proven to be online, you’re missing out on a huge amount of business. Most homebuyers begin their search online, and many need guidance when looking for an agent. It’s no longer ...

The Principles of Team Success, Part 2: Productivity

ICYMI: Last week, I talked about why it’s so important to identify a clear purpose for being in real estate and building a team—you must define your “big why” if you want to develop a successful business. Without a focused purpose, it doesn’t matter much what you do to advance the business because you have nowhere particular you want to go. Henry David Thoreau once wrote: “It is not enough to be industrious; so are the ants. What are you industrious about?” It’s easy to feel busy working in real...

How an Inverse Mentorship Benefits Everyone

Six years ago, when real estate agent Evan Roberts earned his license and started in the business, he realized he needed to learn tricks of the trade beyond his course. “You have more complex transactions,” said Roberts, “and you really need someone with 20 to 30 years of experience who has been through the process before and who you can lean on.” What happens, Roberts wondered, when your clients didn’t find a house and instead want to buy a lot and build? Conducting a transaction with a land br...
