One of the key positions on the teams of our most successful members is that of ISA (Inside Sales Agent). As you look ahead to growing or evolving your own team, it’s useful to have a benchmark in terms of numbers and expectations so you can not only avoid common pitfalls, but also push your team to achieve to its fullest potential. An important point to remember is that your team is who you attract, and you will only be as good as your weakest agents. While one of the benefits you’ll off....

You may have heard me talk about the Universal Business Principle that ‘trying to be all things to all people dilutes your effectiveness’. I don’t think this can be over stated, nor can it not be talked about enough. I teach, and communicate regularly with, many of the top real estate agents in North America. One thing I’ve noticed among these pros is that they live, eat and sleep this hard and fast principle. Let’s take a quick look at its application in a couple of different areas....

On previous posts and webinars, I’ve outlined the basics of running my FSBO program. I thought I’d share a little Q&A about this program from other members as my answers to the questions asked should be useful to those of you who would like to run this powerful program in your marketplace.

Every one of you uses For Sale signs to advertise your listings, but how effective is your signage at generating interest and awareness? More importantly, how effective is your signage at generating qualified sign calls?

One of my coaches was talking with a member the other day and he was having one of those days. You know, the kind of day when you're feeling down and out, too much to get done and not enough time to get it done. He was asking for some advice, and in the end he admitted he knew the answer which was that he needs to hire an office assistant and get some buyers agents. However, for whatever reason, he hadn't gotten around to it. I think we all can relate in some fashion to this agent's problem. ....

All sin is easy after that.” -- Pearl Bailey “No one can cheat you out of ultimate success but yourself.” -- Ralph Waldo Emerson Nearly four months ago now, “Lance Armstrong ended a decade of denial by confessing to Oprah Winfrey that he used performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France.
