ELIMINATING INEFFICIENCIES IN REAL ESTATE--REAL ESTATE MARKETING AND BEYOND

ELIMINATING INEFFICIENCIES IN REAL ESTATE--REAL ESTATE MARKETING AND BEYOND

PHOENIX REAL ESTATEI have been a licensed Realtor for the past ten years. I was baptized into real estate after I was displaced by "Corporate America" in 2002 shortly after the "9/11" incident. The following events went down in my life in 90 days in February of 2002:

  • Purchased first home
  • First child was born
  • Lost my job

I consider myself to be very resourceful. So, I was in the process of exploring my career options while I was collecting my $300 per week unemployment check. Real estate investing was always a dream of mine. Finally, I obtained my Arizona real estate license in 2002. Time flies when having fun.

I obtained a mentor for the first 18 months of my real estate career. I had to learn the ropes of the business by getting dirty. Remember, I had a young family to support and a new mortgage to pay monthly. I quickly learned to generate and close business. I have never looked back since that time.

The biggest inefficiency that I continually see in real estate is MARKETING.

I witnessed Realtors spending $2,000 and more per month on print ads only. Personally, I thought print ads were dinosaur marketing. There had to be a better way of marketing. I decided to lean on my technical skills to develop a more efficient marketing plan for my real estate business.

We all know the REAL ESTATE IS A TEAM SPORT. Well, I better get my team in place. I developed my personal marketing plan. However, I soon realized that I need assistance in implementation while I continually generate and close business.

  10. Put the "REAL" back into real estate when meeting people in public

CONCLUSION:

It has been an amazing ride to this point in my career. We are in the business of generating leads. It is what we do with those leads to convert to closings makes the difference between a good and great Realtor in my opinion. One needs a great team to implement a huge plan successfully. I have been very fortunate to work with the best in the business over the years. I am very excited about my real estate business.
