Get Noticed And Get More Deals | #TomFerryShow Episode 64
If you’ve been in real estate for even just one day you’ve surely noticed that residential real estate has an agent problem:
There are way too many agents in real estate today!
I’d one day like to see just 300,000 agents in the US rather than the 1,000,000+ we currently have.
But more important to you than how many agents there are is how the transactions are divided.
Did you know?
In most markets that 50% of the licensed agents haven’t closed a transaction in the past year?
And that it’s very common to see 80% of all transactions being done by just 15% of the agents.
If you want to break through to that top tier doing all of the business or if you want to stay there here’s what you need to do!Read More ...

My Rant On Agents That Complain About Money | #TomFerryShow Episode 63
As a coach, the majority of calls I get from agents looking for help are NOT the agents selling 500 homes and taking 8 weeks of vacation a year.
Instead it’s mostly from agents who either:
1.) Are stuck earning the same income year over year.
2.) Have fallen backward and are now earning less than they were before.
And these are the agents our company loves to work with.
Because I know there is so much potential for them to change their life around and with some slight adjustments their business can skyrocket.
I LOVE those agents who are coachable and ready to work.
The ones I struggle with are those that complain about money and can’t understand why they aren’t succeeding like other agents in their office.
With 20+ years in coaching to me it’s plain as day what their problem is …Read More ...
