Family, Yorkstyle, Relationships, Lifestyle…?!?

By on Nov 24, 2014 in Podcast | 0 comments

 What do these words have in common?! Passion! This week I’m sharing another great panel of niche professionals. Listen in as these awesome agents share their “one thing” and what that means to them and their business.  I got the chance to lead another panel at ReBar Camp West End. This panel included some very passionate and engaged agents that you see here today. We had Bruce Johnson who shares his story about his family and how that’s led him to find a true passion and calling and how he’s rolled that into an amazing career and a way to give back.  Vivien Sharon shares her love for Yorkville and how she’s built a thriving business based around her community and her passion and love for it. All things social media, Jennifer Evelyn talks about her niche of turning online relationships into offline relationships and how to further that into business.  And then finally Christine Mitchell explains that luxury homes are more than just price point, its about lifestyle. She’s found a way to tap into a lifestyle she loves and has had tremendous success with it. As you can see, each of these agents have had diverse backgrounds and experiences, but there is one thing in common… Their passion for what they do.  Let us know what you think about this episode and what you have learned from these top shelf agents!

Aaron Wittenstein is, and he’s about to list their home! This week I interview Aaron Wittenstein about his love and passion for expireds. As an agent in a new area, he knew the fastest way to grow his business was through prospecting expireds. And believe me, its paid off! Aaron and I jump right into some of the scripts he uses, the follow up process he uses and the systems he uses to ensure a steady flow of expireds. We talk about his new venture, an over seas inside sales rep, who has completely changed how hes doing his business and is working extremely well for him and his business. Many agents are terrified of expireds because of the fear of rejection, well this is something Aaron addresses in this episode and you don’t want to miss his suggestion.  If you don’t go after  expireds in your area, someone like Aaron Wittenstein will, and trust me, he will get them! So listen to this weeks episode and go get your unfair share of the listings in your area with Aaron’s simple and effective strategies.  Also, don’t forget to join Aaron’s new (and AMAZING) Facebook group  “Lead Gen Scripts and Objections” and start mastering your scripts with some amazing agents from all over the world.   Listen/Download Audio File Here: Home just expired?

The Niche Panel… And I’m on it!

The Niche Panel… And I’m on it!

And here are my thoughts! This week I wanted to share a video of a training I did recently at one of the local real estate boards. We had the incredible Michelle Hawco (aka The House Mom) who has really found her niche in the “mom community” as an excellent mother, and real estate agent, its no wonder shes having the success shes had. Then next up we had myself, speaking about, of course, niches. I share where I came from, what I learned in my business and then what I have learned by doing this podcasts. Its actually one of the first times I have actually shared my story and been interviewed rather than being the interviewer on here. I hope you guys like it. And then we have Jenny Kotulak as she shares her 25+ years experience in the business. As a trainer and office manager, Jenny has a lot of great insights into this business and what makes it work. I know we didn’t have an episode last week, but I hope this will help make up for it. Keep an eye out for even more episodes of some niche panels I have done recently as well. I trust you will find them really helpful.
