Nick Waldner does, and has proven they work in real estate! This week I interview Nick Waldner about his tremendous growth with his team. And do you know what he equates much of his success too? Systems! Nick shares his back story about how he built a very successful career in the franchise industry. He shares how he translated this love and passion for systems into his real estate business. We talk about what systems Nick and his team use, how hes modeled his business, the success curve, the achievements and mistakes that Nick has made that’s helped shape his career and where he is going with his business. After watching numerous people dramatically succeed or drastically fail in the franchise, he quickly realized the ones who succeeded the most, were the ones who followed the system the most. And thus began his passion and drive to follow a system for his real estate business. If you haven’t heard yet, Nick is going to have his own 20 episode show about waterfront homes all across the U.S. and will be on A&E in 2015. And this all stemmed from one opportunity that Nick took a few years back! As a result of that experience, Nick is now developing a profitable and great business around waterfront homes.  The waterfront niche is something Nick is very passionate about. As a result of filming this show, Nick is building an incredible connection of waterfront niche agents all across north america. He is making it his goal to be the “go to” person on waterfronts! (And with his past track record, he will pull it off.)

By on Dec 8, 2014 in Podcast | 0 comments

Matt Aitchison did… And it has! Literally! This week I interview Matt Aitchison, the other half to the Aitchison & Adams real estate team. (Rachel, one half of the Aitchison & Adams real estate team was a past guest of The Niche Agent, you can check out her episode here:  www.TheNicheAgent.com/Episode41) Matt shares some secrets to the teams tremendous and QUICK success. In the interview, Matt and I discuss how they structured the team and the techniques they use to build massive wealth for themselves and their team. As an investor himself, Matt knew that in order to build their real estate pipeline they would need to have an investment arm of their business so they built it. One of the things that makes their team unique is that if they can’t purchase the property directly from the seller, they send it over to Rachel where she works her magic on listing side of things. Its a straight forward system that Matt says anyone can follow if you just take the chance and follow the model. We jump into how Matt gained his knowledge, who has mentored him over the years and how hes changed his mindset to one of abundance and to learn to build a happy and wealthy life.  If you have done any investing yourself, or work with any investors and would like to see how the Aitchison & Adams team has built this as a staple of their business, then this is one episode you wont want to miss!
