Ready, Set, Onboard!: How To Effectively Onboard Agents w/Donnie Morrow

Onboarding is a hot topic and one many team leaders struggle with. However, the real issue is that we overcomplicate the process. What are some of the biggest onboarding mistakes we are making on our teams? How do we train for both sales and admin, and how can we make the transition into our teams as smooth as possible? What values and mindsets should we be instilling in the first few weeks? On this episode, Club Wealth Tier 3 coach and Tier 4 coaching client Donnie Morrow, shares how we can implement a world class onboarding process for our teams. 

When it comes to onboarding, people get too wrapped up in the training aspect, but the biggest thing is implementation. Take action and you can fix some of the stuff along the way.

Three Things We Learned From This Episode

  • We can balance both new and seasoned agents in our team for the benefit of the business
    When thinking long-term, we’re more productive with new agents. However, if we want short-term productivity, we should go for experienced agents. There is a space for both in our businesses. With experienced agents, we’ll have to train out the bad habits and egos. With new agents, we have to train them in how to start making money. 

  • Leverage your in-person training
    Our training doesn’t have to be one-on-one, it can be one-to-many. There’s a synergy that happens when we hire one-to-many that we don’t get one-to-one.  

  • The onboarding process shouldn’t be a balance between fun and education
    Even though onboarding is an important and critical process in our business, it should also be fun. We want our agents to feel excited about joining our team. We want to make them feel like rockstars! The entire onboarding process becomes much more engaging for our agents when they are enjoying themselves.

 

The goal with onboarding our agents is to bring them into our world. We should do this in a fun and simple way that makes them feel like a part of something great. We need to have a simple system in place that we can follow consistently every single time because ultimately, we want people to engage with the training. That’s what will give them success on our teams and in the industry.

How to Use iBuyers to Your Advantage w/Nick Shivers and David Stites

 

The rise of iBuyers in the marketplace is alarming for a lot of agents, but their popularity doesn’t need to spell disaster. What is it about iBuyers that attracts clients, and is it possible for us to work in harmony with the new platforms? How can we stay afloat in the age of technology and internet-based competitors? On this episode, co-owner of Team Stites, David Stites, and CEO of My Rocket Listing, Nick Shivers, share how we can work alongside iBuyers, and even use them to our advantage.

 

Change is inevitable- accept that iBuyers are here to stay and start looking for the opportunities they present. -Nick Shivers

 

Three Things We Learned From This Episode

  • Stop thinking it’s all about money
    A lot of agents assume our clients are focused on getting the most money possible. However, that’s not always the case. Other factors, like convenience, are huge factors that our clients take into account. Listen to clients and tailor deals to their needs. 
  • Take advantage of iBuyers
    iBuyers offer convenience to their customers, but they also offer opportunities to their competitors. Take advantage of the information available on the platforms and educate yourself on what they offer. By knowing more about our competitors, were better able to show our clients why we’re the better option.
  • Don’t fight change
    While iBuyers are a scary concept, they’re definitely not the first threat to the real estate industry. To stay afloat in the market, we need to be open to adaptation and focus on what we do best. The changes in the industry are chaotic, but there will always be opportunities for us to thrive if we adapt along the way. 

 

iBuyers definitely pose a threat to the real estate industry, but they also present us with opportunities. We need to use the information they share freely to educate ourselves on what they do, and begin strategizing how we can do better. Most importantly, remember that change is inevitable, and i-buyers need not be the enemy.
