A Professionally Designed Busines Plan
Less than 20% of real estate associates have a business plan. We believe without a detailed business plan to answer critical questions about your business and provide you with a platform for future growth, success in real estate becomes much more difficult. Our real estate coaching and business planning outlines and evaluates all aspects of your real estate business and establishes a specific roadmap and process on how you will achieve your goals.
A good business plan starts with your “Wish List” i.e. how much you wish to earn and then guides you through the process of examining the key aspects of generating real income: Revenue, Expenses and Business Development.
This is not some pie in the sky plan that you do once and then look at 12 months from now. This plan is your foundation, created by the best business coaches on the planet and monitored by them! This is just another benefit we offer our associates, you would pay up to $10,000 per year individually for this in-depth career builder.
6 Questions To Ask Yourself For a More Rewarding Real Estate Career
1 How flexible are your hours? Realtors consistently rank flexibility as a reason they got into real estate, but as they got busier, working late nights and weekends can interrupt family time because they are available whenever a client calls. What boundaries have you set for yourself? How will that affect your business? Income? Is time management an issue? With our systems, you can leverage your time to offer exceptional service and maintain a balanced family and social life.
2 Do you offer value every day to your clients? Real estate is one of the biggest financial decisions your clients may ever make, it is so easy to lose sight of this with the day-to-day activities, interruptions, disruptors and servicing new and past clients. What systems do you have in place to offer value consistently?
3 What are some of the talents you have that nobody knows about? If very few people know about you and your skills, you could be the best-hidden secret in the marketplace. Don’t hide!
4 Not happy with your earnings? Similar to question 2. Did you know your income is consistent with the number of skills and value you provide to your clients? Where, how, and what skills do you need to increase your revenue? Your current income equals the value you currently offer.
5 Are you running your business or is the business running you? Your current real estate brokerage has a huge impact on a Realtor’s success rate, career growth and exit. Is your current brokerage providing you with a win-win scenario, a financial exit plan, a mentoring or a leverage program?
6 Do you have one or two niche markets where you’re better suited? Are you a general practitioner “I’ll take on anything, any buyer or seller, anytime, anywhere”, Realtor? If so, enjoy the struggles, disappointments and frustrations and a yo-yo income. I know this is a very blunt statement, the brutal truth usually hurts. What niche markets can you go after? Do you know how?
