How to Find Freedom Through Leverage & Boundary Setting w/Mikki Ramey

For real estate team leaders, juggling work-life balance can be a real challenge. How does schedule setting, waking up early, and hiring the right people give us more freedom in our business? How does leverage increase our production? How can we avoid burnout? On this episode, broker and owner of Healthy Realty, Mikki Ramey, shares insights and tips on how we can crush it at home and at work.

 

 

There’s a direct correlation between getting really specific with your schedule and increasing your production. -Mikki Ramey

 

Three Things We Learned From This Episode

  • Hire for attitude, train for skill
    Sometimes the best real estate talent comes from outside our industry. We need to pay attention to people in our sphere who are already good at what they do. They could possibly be good matches for real estate. 

  • How to avoid overworking yourself 
    As team leaders, we often have guilt when we spend any time our way from our business, but we can’t have a great family life if we’re answering every question. Our clients will be happy getting help and questions answered by other agents on the team. 

  • If you want to leverage people you have to trust them
    Don’t micromanage people, empower them. Give them the room to learn and to fail in their role. 
    We won’t allow them to grow, and we’ll never be able to find out their superpower. Trust is important in being able to gain more freedom. 

No amount of success at work can make up for failure at home. When we don’t work to have work-life balance, our families and our own health suffer. Leverage is one way we can start getting back our freedom. The benefits of getting a team aren’t just for the team leader, they are for everyone on the team because it means no one will be spread too thin. The more deliberate and structured we are in what we’re doing, the more success you’ll have.

How to Boost Your Online Lead Sources w/Marine Yoo

Online referral and lead sources are becoming a more common fixture of the real estate industry. How can we build long-term relationships through these platforms? Why is follow up such a key part of success with any long-term lead source? How can you get more online leads right now? On this episode, we talk to Club Wealth coach, Marine Yoo, who shares on how we can get more opportunities through online lead platforms.

 

 

Everything you do right will pay dividends, but don’t look for immediate gratification. -Marine Yoo

 

Three Things We Learned From This Episode

  • How to maximize our online referral sources 
    All lead sources that are paid a referral fee want to work with people giving them the highest ROI, ultimately they are also running a business.  You have to get dialed in on your follow up and conversion, and actually give good service. 

  • The correct mindset to have about online referrals 
    When it comes to dealing with online referral sources, change your mindset and think of them like institutional sellers such as banks. This allows you to take the emotion out of the equation and competition out of it and build a predictable and duplicatable system around it. 

  • How to generate lifetime referrals from entry level buyers
    In entry level price points, people aren’t treated with as much respect as million dollar customers are treated. If we treat entry level customers as well as we would high end ones, they become a raving lifetime fans that will refer us over and over again. 

 

Online lead and referral sources are anything but free lead sources, we have to work hard. In order for us to make them lucrative and repeatable, it’s important for us to follow the best practices of running a business. Follow up and conversion are key to achieving this, because these lead platforms also want to maximize their ROI. It’s a mental game, and in order to play it well, we have to sharpen our swords, and focus on providing value and service at all times to all clients.

How to Stay in Contact with Your Database w/Josh Anderson

After a transaction is complete, it’s often difficult to stay in touch with past clients. How can you keep fostering the relationships you’ve built? What platforms should you be using to make sure your referrals count? On this episode, US Veteran and Nashville’s most trusted Realtor, Josh Anderson shares his advice on staying in contact with your database. 

 

 

Three Things We Learned From This Episode

Host regular client events

Once a transaction is complete, it can feel awkward for an agent to stay in contact with past clients, especially over the phone. The best way to stop this interaction from being uncomfortable, is by offering your database value. By contacting past clients to invite them to client appreciation events a few times throughout the year, you have something of value to offer.

 

Time block

You can have the best database in the world, but if you’re not time blocking, you won’t be able to take advantage of it. Set up specific times to do each activity during the day. It doesn’t help to be out of the office with clients all morning if it means it will hinder your routine.

 

Ask for reviews

A lot of referral sites require users to set up profiles to see client testimonials. This stops many prospective clients from seeing your reviews. Rather than relying on these sites, ask your database to leave you a Google review. Everyone has access to Google, and it’s an easy tool to use. Aim to get these reviews from around 60% of your interactions, and don’t be afraid to ask for them throughout the process. 

 

Staying in contact with past clients is one of the best ways to build a strong database. Make sure that while you’re in contact with your database, you’re offering as much value as you can. Host client appreciation days and offer assistance when needed. Just remember to run your operations like a business, and be sure to set aside the time needed.
