FREE CLASS FOR NEW BROKERS

There is no catch for this FREE offer! Sometimes we are skeptical when we hear the word “free” because there are often strings attached.

The statistics show that 87% of brokers quit before they reach the 5 year mark. This real estate business is not as easy as it looks from the outside! I decided to write a 3 clockhour class to give new brokers some ideas to implement to help build your business. We are always looking for the solution to the big mystery. “Where are the prospect?” The answer is on page 13. See the class under First Renewal for New Brokers.

The FIRST 24 MONTHS is a FREE 3 clockhour class available to brokers that have not reached their first renewal. This class covers topics including:

  • “Buying” business
  • Important Legal Issues
  • Water is your enemy
  • Avoiding the Orange Jumpsuit
  • How to Survive in the Desert

This class is a correspondence class. There is no clicking through it with some tick tock timing. You read the material. Print out the quiz. Complete with a pen. Scan back. You can even use a scanning app on your cell phone to email it back to us!

Just a bit of

CREATIVITY

can Enhance your Marketing! 

3 clockhour class by Natalie

Our flyers for listings look the same as they did 35 years ago.  Even our business cards could be from the turn of the century with the exception we now have an email and website.  Your listing photos are just pictures of the property.

Look at your business and your listings in a new light.  We are all creative but there are times we have a tendency to do what everyone else does.

People choose you to work with because of who you are!  So let them know!  Often real estate brokers get caught up in being “professional” and don’t market the best part of themselves.  You will connect with more people if you can find common interests, for example.

When you buy a pizza, you don’t have a huge trust issue when you hand over that $20 bill.  But, when a client purchases a home, they are making decisions about the largest transaction of their entire life.  They need to trust their real estate broker.  Trust happens with connections.  It is an old cliché, but the prospects have to know and like you before they can trust you.

Your listings… Well, they can be boring!  Why not take 20 minutes and make a video that tells a story using your cell phone!  Easier than you think!

Your bio or profile.  Does it only say how long you have been in the business and where you work.  Will your clients smile when they read it?

This class on Creativity is a great space to share ideas on how you can insert more or yourself in your marketing to create better connections with prospects.

Natalie will be teaching this class twice this summer.  In addition, she will be offering it like a webinar using Zoom.  If you are interested, don’t hesitate to email her!
