Let’s face it, when things are good in the real estate market, you’re flying high. However, when things become slow and the once rich well of real estate leads dries up it becomes downright terrifying!

Unless you were paying very close attention to the roadmap to wealth that was laid out by those that became more successful during the last recession, you’re probably feeling panicked by the idea of the market crashing.

That is understandable considering the fact that most agents never bring home more than $30K a year! Once the market tanks, that number gets much lower. For those of you that have been actively working full-time for two years or less, the median gross income i...

One of the most common questions I see real estate agents asking all the time is how to choose a broker or if they should switch. Seriously, it is CONSTANT.

And you know what? I totally get that!

The broker that you choose to hang your license with does have a legitimate impact on your potential for success.

Now, don’t get it twisted. Anything and everything that goes right or wrong in your business is 100% on you! Therefore, your broker is not the one to blame if you’re not happy with how things are going. However, there are things that your broker can do or not do that can slow you down and hold you back or act as an additional obstacle.

One thing I am not going to get into t...

13 Ways To Revive A Stale Listing

Every agent has been there. You fight tooth and nail to snag a listing, spend a bunch of time and money assembling the marketing materials and excitedly publish it to the MLS with fantasies of how you will spend the commission check.

Then, despite a showing or two, you find yourself sitting on a stale listing with less than pleased sellers. You promised you could get it sold. You feel like you’ve done everything you can to attract a buyer, and your sellers are refusing to reduce the price.

Now what?!

If you are anything like most agents, you feel stuck; like there’s nothing more that you can do other than what you already have. However, the truth...

One of the biggest challenges for real estate agents is creating a steady flow of income that enables you to comfortably pay your bills, invest in your business, and plan for the future.

Unfortunately, if you are like most real estate agents, you live on an income roller coaster in which you have periods of great prosperity and periods of financial drought. It is because of this struggle that many real estate agents start looking outside their chosen career for additional work and income, otherwise known as side-hustles.

There are many people out there that argue that they would never be able to make it without the extra income generated from their side hustle. There are others that promise ...

Did you know that your real estate content can be used for more than just generating leads?

It can also be monetized in several ways that will make you serious money in your sleep. I’m talking about five figures per month in passive income!

Have you ever heard of treadmill marketing?

No?

I'm not surprised because it's something I just made up haha!

If you are anything like me, you frequently feel like there simply isn't enough time in the day to work in your business, work on your business, be present with friends and family, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. This is something I have really struggled with this ear and my health is what suffered the most.

Recently, I read committed myself to eating better and working out. Since I am a self-admitted cardio addict, I have been spending a ton of time on trails and treadmills. That is when I realized just how much of my digital marketing tasks could be done from my phone while walki...

More than a year and a half ago I wrote a post insisting that if you wanted to crush it in real estate you needed to start a podcast. Not only can starting a real estate podcast help you to vastly expand your audience, boost your brand awareness, and position you as an expert in your field but it can also earn you a lot of passive income.

Whether you are a brand new real estate agent, an experienced broker, or a real estate coach, you could always use a few extra streams of income. Regardless of what position you hold in the real estate industry, you are a business owner and you know the value of passive income as well as I do.

However, if you are anything like most people working in the re...
