If you're like most agents, you want to build a career you love.  In this episode, we break down 7 ways we have found agents do just that.  This is episode is part 1.  Join us next week for part 2.  

Here are the 7 Ways To Build A Real Estate Career You Love:

  1. CLEAR PLAN that’s CONGRUENT to you, and one that you stay CONSISTENT with. You are FOCUSED, have no shiny object syndrome, and know what to do every single day. 
  2. LEADS - Steady stream of leads from 3 pillars, excellent matchmaking system, no commission roller coaster. 
  3. SYSTEMS - Anything you do repeatedly needs to be delegated and/or needs to have a system.
  4. BOUNDARIES, time off, vacations - able to “shut it off”. No longer people please.
  5. The BEST CLIENTS - Ones who respect you and your boundaries and you love working with them. 
  6. POSITIVE MINDSET - you love life.
  7. Giving, sharing, legacy. Not limiting God’s abundance in your life. Dream with the lid off.

“Neil, what do I need to do every day in order to be a successful real estate agent?” If I had a nickel for every time I’ve been asked that question I could probably retire. The reality is most new or stuck agents don’t know what they need to do on a daily basis in order to be successful. Sure, the big picture is to sell houses, but what are the things you need to be doing on a random Tuesday to make that happens? You’re in luck my friend because that is what this episode is all about.

The three pillar system is the foundation of your real estate business

If I were a betting man I’d say that there isn’t a single successful real estate agent out there who isn’t using some version of the three pillar system. Seriously, if you don’t have a sphere of influence, chase, and attraction pillar what are you doing? These things are the foundation of your business because they help you develop a clear and effective business plan. Without clarity and consistency, you WILL fail. Not sure what the three pillar system would look like in your business? Press play to find out!

Day blocking will create the consistency you desperately need

As a new or stuck agent, having a schedule void of appointments may be a regular occurrence. It’s in those moments you are probably wondering “What can I do to change this?!” If you already have a clear business plan from your three pillars the answer is simple. Day blocking! Use the plan you already have by picking specific days of the week to work individual pillars. By doing this week in and week out you will create the consistency you need to be a successful real estate agent. This episode is full of examples of how day blocking can turn an empty schedule into a productive one.

The key to growing your business is tracking it

Remember when you were a kid and your parents would mark the wall to record how tall you were getting? Okay, maybe they didn’t do that, but for a lot of kids that was the easiest way to prove they were growing. Your real estate business is no different. By using things like engagement and lead trackers you will not only be able to see your growth but also diagnose the source of it. Tracking your business can also be an enormous source of encouragement because it allows you to see how far you have come and can motivate you for the future.

Understanding your business plan will take your business to the next level

It’s not enough to simply have a business plan. In order to become a successful real estate agent, you have to understand that plan and why it works for you. Don’t just run with something because your buddy Neil said so. You have to work in accordance with your strengths. Being successful is not a one size fits all formula. It requires a level of consistency that is unique to who YOU are as a real estate agent. That’s why I love the deep work we are able to do in Agent Rise Bootcamps. It’s time to start focusing on what’s driving YOUR business and take things to the next level!

Generating Real Estate Leads On YouTube With Karin Carr - Best of Agent Rise (Onion Juice)

We are on our way to episode 350 and to celebrate we are going to begin the countdown of the top three most downloaded episodes.  This week we share the number three most downloaded episode.  It's an instant classic that was published in March of 2018.  Karin Carr was my guest, and many of you now know her as the author of YouTube for real estate agents.  This was all before then, in fact, this was Karen’s first-ever podcast appearance.  We've come a long way from the recording of the episode.  We have learned so much since then, but it’s fun to hear where we were then how far we’ve come with YouTube since then.  Here is my interview with Karin Carr back in 2018.

Tim Ferriss always says, “Focus on being productive instead of busy.” But, what does he mean by that and how can it be applied to our daily lives as real estate agents?

Being busy just means you are not allowing yourself much free time because you are constantly trying to work on too many things whether they are productive or not.

Today we are going to give you examples to determine if you are busy or productive, and then we are going to give you tips to stay productive.

If you’re like most agents right now, you are exhausted from this market. 5-10-15 offers later, you finally got those buyers into a house. It’s exhausting.

We must create our own inventory. Homes on the MLS are selling too fast and it’s too fierce to rely on that alone. Everything changes when you’re buying a home that’s not on the MLS. We all know that, but the thought of looking off the MLS is even more exhausting. 

How do we keep going? How do we thrive in this market? 

It’s like we are used to going to the grocery store to get our produce, but now we have to go to the farmer’s field to get that same produce. The MLS used to provide for us. We would have a buyer, we’d bring them to the MLS, and they would pick a house after looking at 10-15 of them. Easy peasy, right? 

Now today, you take that same buyer to the market, it’s a line out the door to get in, and once you do get in, the shelves are empty (because the inventory sells so fast). Meanwhile, everyone is screaming “They'll pay more!”

You have a choice. You can go home—wait for the market to calm down, wait for demand to slow, wait for more inventory to arrive. Or, you can become a farmer, and go out into the field and grow your own.

I get it, none of us want to do it! We don’t want to be farmers. We want to just bring our buyers to the market. I get it, it’s like another part time job! It’s like another pillar. We are defeated, we just want to go to the market, we don’t want to be farmers! 

But here is the good news - limitations bring opportunity. Difficult times like this will bring a skill that you’ll use the rest of your career. If you get good, get a system in place to find an off market house to bring to your buyers, get so good at it that you become the biggest farmer in town. 

Where are you farming? Where are you looking for inventory?

Many are asking, “what is going to be like if the market shifts?”  You hear how hard the recession was, and with how crazy everything is, it's easy to worry another one is coming. But here is the thing…

This IS THE HARD MARKET. This market is just as challenging as the recession, if not more challenging. 

In the recession, we had way too many sellers and not enough buyers.  Today we have too many buyers and not enough sellers. In 2008 they called it a housing crisis. In 2022 they are now calling it a housing crisis. 

The storm is upon us, how do we navigate?

The market usually helps us, but this day in time the market is NOT helping us. We are a ship at sea. The wind is the market, and normally with our sails out the boat moves with ease. But there's no wind, so we need to kick in our engine. That engine is us having to work harder to find inventory to move our boat. The market isn’t going to do it for us. 

IF YOU WANT TO THRIVE IN THIS MARKET you have to CREATE YOUR OWN INVENTORY - create a spreadsheet of UNLISTED SELLERS! Your own database of people wanting to move.

I have gotten so many messages from agents saying how much a certain story had an impact on them from Agent Rise Breakthrough Week. One agent said,

Have you ever been stuck right after you started?

When Adaya started as a new agent she spun her wheels for a few months. Nothing was working. It was getting so scary that she almost quit and returned to her old job waiting tables. She was stressed and her family could feel it. Ever been there?

Thankfully she didn’t quit, and instead, she dove into group coaching. Now, five months later she has had 7 closings!! Meanwhile, she has boundaries in her business, she doesn’t fake it until she makes it, her clients rave about her, and she has truly built a business that she loves. AND she hasn’t even been an agent for a year!

I’m so excited to share how she did it during our Agent Rise Breakthrough Week!

​​Who else has struggled with consistent habits? 

Aaron Cherry was a new agent yet to form any bad habits but didn’t really have any good ones either.  Being new made him want to try everything, which didn’t allow him to be consistent with anything. Ever felt like that?🙋

Now Aaron has great habits formed, many systems in place, and is ready for more growth. He has great client relationships with many raving fans who love to refer him, because he’s so focused on his client’s experience. With great habits, systems in place, and happy clients,  Aaron has truly built a business he LOVES! 

I’m so excited to share how he is doing it during our Agent Rise Breakthrough Week!

Who else is excited to hear Aaron’s story!?

Does the thought of HUSTLE MORE make you sick?

For Michele Curtin, Erin Anderson, and Aimee Wudel the thought of HUSTLE MORE wasn’t in the cards with raising a family. They wanted to make a great income, but more importantly, they wanted time freedom to be a parent. For most of their career, they didn’t believe they could have BOTH a great income AND time freedom to enjoy their family. Ever been there? 🙋‍♂️

Fast forward to today, all three have built a business that they love. One that provides for their family, AND gives them time to enjoy their family. Want to know how they did it?

How can you be an agent without being salesy? 

For Rory Pitts, he was just scraping by as an agent and barely making it all work. He didn't want to be salesy or flashy, but in order to support everyone in his life, he felt he had to if he wants to be successful. Could he be true to himself and be there for his family, all while making the living he dreamed of? Ever felt like that? 🙋

Now, while being authentically himself, he has built a business that he LOVES. He established boundaries and actively schedules vacations and family time.  As a result, he has earned trust with clients and now the majority of his business comes from repeat business and people referring him.  

I’m so excited to share how he did it during our Agent Rise Breakthrough Week!

Why wasn't the coaching working for Jeff?

Jeff West is an agent in Grants Pass OR, and he'd invested in a few coaching programs. While he learned from them, nothing really changed in his life.

In 2020, he decided to give coaching one more try and scheduled a call with Neil.  He was ready to take his business to the next level, and build something he once only dreamed of.

Now Jeff has built a business that he LOVES. He has support so he can consistently create opportunities, and as a result, he is less stressed and has more time with his family.

What was different this time? You have to hear Jeff's story!
