Last week, we shared some exciting news about RESAAS' 2016 Real Estate Rockstars.
Today, we’re talking real estate coaches.
No matter what you’d like to call it - a coach, a mentor, a best friend - everyone’s in need of a key person to keep them motivated and focused on their goals.
In real estate, coaches are key to building a successful real estate business.
But first, let’s talk criteria- the basis of what we used to determine these elite group of coaches.
A modern real estate coach should know what it takes to help agents effectively market their real estate business using modern marketing practices and technology.
Are they using modern marketing practices?
Are they keeping up with industry trends?
A good coach should know in’s and out’s of the industry, either by having worked as a real estate agent themselves or bringing with them more than just a handful of years worth of experience. If you’re going to talk the talk then you’d better walk the walk.
Have they worked in the real estate industry prior to coaching?
Do they have the experience to provide successful coaching to their clients?
While getting regular coaching adds up financially, today’s coach recognizes that most agents aren’t top producing.
Is the coaching affordable while remaining competitive?
Is the coaching available outside of the coaches marketplace i.e. online?
We’d consider Travis to be a “full stack” coach if there was such a title. He has a background in technology, marketing and more importantly, leadership development, making him a coach that you’d want on your team. Travis understands the evolution of technology and how that plays a part into how today’s real estate agent can do business with their clients.
Richard Robbins is no joke. He was able to hit a six figure income in his first year in real estate, soon after starting his own successful real estate brokerage. Richard knows the up’s and down’s of the real estate market which he shares as a success real estate coach.
Accessibility is the name in Craig Proctor’s game. Craig’s always on the move across North America hosting free seminars to real estate professionals in need of expert level coaching. Did you catch that? We said “free”! You can read through Craig’s blog to soak up his knowledge as well if you’re not able to make a conference. With that said, Craig isn’t shy to adopt new technology to reach out to agents in need of coaching.
What’s a real estate coach list without Mike Ferry? Mike has been coaching agents since 1975. It’s fair to say he understands how the real estate market has evolved and how this impacts yesterday’s and today’s agent. Mike’s also been recognized as the National Association of REALTORS® most influential coach in real estate, making him a household name across the industry… no pun intended.
Lee’s one busy bee - when she’s not buzzing around speaking at conferences and on panels, Lee’s coaching and leading real estate agents to supreme industry success. Lee doesn’t just talk the talk, she’s walking the the walk - she was the Managing Broker and mentor at RE/MAX Around Atlanta. What’s great about Lee is that she’s not shy to share her knowledge wherever she can, whether through her social media profiles, website or on her blog.
Real estate is in Julie Youngblood’s DNA - her and her family have been in the real estate biz for over 30 years. You could just imagine how much expertise she’s able to bring as a success real estate coach. Julie’s now working with agents all over the U.S. and recently featured as ‘Inman’s 2016 25 Best Real Estate Coaches’.
And the winner is...
