The Importance of Joining a Real Estate Team for Success in Your First Year

You don’t wanna do what I did when I first started and work by yourself and not know what to do because most real estate agents who start work by themselves or don’t know what to do end up quitting and doing something else. So that’s not what you wanna do. And if you did step one, that mentor is your easiest first way in to that team. And the team’s gonna have all the resources, the knowledge, the know how, to basically be your continuing education into the business after you get your license. And honestly, the best part about a team, is it’s like family and everybody does everything together. And they all love each other. It’s super, super cool. What’s up team? (eletaed music) So you’re on a team. Now, step four, you build your sphere of influence. And you do that in two separate ways. One, you do your warm sphere.

Building Your Sphere of Influence: The Key to Success in Your First Year as a Real Estate Agent

That’s your mom, your dad, your foster mom, your baby daddy, everyone you knew in first grade, everyone from Facebook, from Instagram, you reach out to them and you say, hi, my name is Bill.I’m a real estate agent now. Would you like to buy or sell with me?I promise you, your first clients are gonna come from that warm sphere of influence that you’re going to build. Your next sphere is your cold sphere. Those are people you meet on the street. People you meet, like I did, in Starbucks. Some of my first clients were pregnant women in Starbucks because they needed more room. And it’s easy to do. Here, look, I’ll show you how to do it right now. Hey man, my name is Ryan, I’m Real Estate. Would you like to buy or sell? Okay, it takes time.(soft music) Now you got the ball rolling. You’re licensed, you’re on a team, you’ve got support, people are starting to know who you are even on the street. What’s next, step five. Set up your day for success. Also known as Finder, Keeper, Doer.

Mastering the Entrepreneurial Mindset: Maximizing Productivity and Success in Real Estate

If you read my book or you take my course, you’ll know that I set up my entire day and I calendar it so that I can be successful and generate leads. Finder is putting on your CEO hat. Set time in your calendar every day to go out and think about how you’re gonna build your new business as an entrepreneur because that’s really what real estate agents are. We are entrepreneurs who go out and try to find people to buy and sell homes. Next, you’re gonna set a little time for keeper. Keeper time is like the CFO. Keeper time is time you’re gonna focus on advertising money. How am I going to go out there and spend money to make money ’cause scared money don’t make money. Maybe that’s taking $10 that I have in my pocket and going to Starbucks and getting a couple lattes for people that could be clients. Maybe that’s doing a mailer and putting stamps on postcards. Whatever it might be, you have something to spend to make money. And then lastly, is the doer time. Doer time is the operations.

Mastering the Three F’s: Follow Up, Follow Through, Follow Back – The Key to Success in Real Estate

That’s you actually putting the stamps on that postcard. That’s you actually running up and down the street, showing the apartments, painting the walls of the little studio that you just got to rent for $600 a month. Finder, Keeper, Doer, FKD. You structure your day for success that way and you will grow your business as a successful sales entrepreneur, I guarantee it. (soft music) Okay, so your day is structured. You’re starting to build up your sphere of influence. Your networking your ass off, you’re using the other agents in your office, you’re helping them maybe running their open houses and you’re building. Now you feel like a true sales person. Now what? Now it’s step six, probably my biggest action item. Maybe the most effective step. That’s the three F’s, Follow up, follow through, follow back. It’s how I really have built my entire business.

Mastering the Art of Follow-Up and Follow-Through: A Real Estate Agent’s Guide to Success

By structuring my day, finder, keeper, doer, by working with other agents and networking my butt off and following up like it’s my job ’cause it is my job because I’m a real estate agent and that’s what real estate agents do. We follow up, we follow through and we follow back. So the first F is follow up. That’s making sure everybody I meet on the street, everyone I talked to, I stay on top of them until they die. And their grandparents.I’m kind of joking, kind of not. That’s my job.I’m gonna follow up with everybody because when they think real estate, I want them to think, Ryan. Then you’ve got follow through. Following through is the easiest thing to do. But the one that people have the hardest time with. It’s just doing what you say you’re going to do. If you meet someone, at an event, and they say, actually, I am looking for a home, cool. And you say, I’m gonna send you something, right now. But I said when I get home, I will send you a listing. Do it.

Mastering the Three Fs: Follow Up, Follow Through, Follow Back – Essential Steps to Succeed in Real Estate

It’s blows my mind how many real estate agents out there say they’re going to do something and then they don’t do it. And then probably the most important F is following back. Anyone that you’ve ever met, anyone you’ve ever worked with, going back to them. Hey, happy birthday. Hey, congrats on your one year closing anniversary. The house across the street from you just sold for a record price. Aren’t you happy you got the deal you did? Follow up, follow through, follow back. Those are the three Fs, that is step six. You do that on top of everything else. You’re now well on your way to crushing it. (elated music) And now a quick word from our sponsors.

Mastering the Art of People-Finding: Essential Steps for Success in Real Estate

Go get your free trial. (upbeat music) Step seven, and I can’t stress this enough, become a people-finder. You are not a real estate agent. You’re not real estate, you’re not anything else. You are someone who goes out and finds people all day, every day. People who wanna rent, people who wanna buy, people who wanna sell and you wanna find other real estate agents. Build real estate agent relationships next to you, both in your office, in other offices, go to other people’s open houses, go to broker open houses, go to networking events where other real estate like-minded people are and become part of the conversation. Now there’s social media. You can meet new people through hashtags on Instagram. You can meet new people through DM on Twitter. You can meet people through LinkedIn, through Forbes.

Maximizing Personal Branding and Networking: Unleashing the Power of Social Media and Personal Connections in Real Estate

There so many ways that you can meet new people and you should be using all of those platforms to build your personal brand and you shout it from the rooftops through social media because that’s what I use social for, both Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube.I’m continuously reminding people every single day, actively and passively, that I’m the greatest real estate agent in the history of the world and that when you think real estate, you should use me. And that’s what it’s for. So do that, as well as meeting people on the street and talking to your mom and your mom’s new boyfriend. Become that people-finder and they will bring you more business. (soft music) And a bonus step, step eight.I know the caption.

The Crucial Bonus Step for Success in Real Estate: Focus, Train, and Study

The video said that they were the seven steps to becoming a real estate agent and that’s true, but one little bonus step that I wanna give to you especially is, everybody else in the professional workforce, trains, they study. Think about professional athletes, they make so much money. They spend 95% of their time practicing. And only 5% of their time, in their life, playing games that we watch. Sales people, for some reason, don’t think that way. They spend 95% of their time in games. Maybe they’re with clients, talking to people on the phone, not practicing, not studying at all, thinking to themselves, oh, I’ll just get more experience and I’ll learn more. And then they spend maybe 5% of their time maybe taking a course here and there. They don’t focus enough. And so I’m imploring to you as my last little bonus step.I want you to focus, I want you to train, I want you to study.

Master the Art of Real Estate Sales with Expert Training and a Comprehensive Course
