I'm convinced that professional speakers need to listen more. Yesterday I had the opportunity to engage Des Moines Metro Real Estate Agents from RE/MAX Real Estate Concepts on the power of personal branding using traditional and non-traditional media.
I learned a bunch...
I learned that to be successful a real estate agent needs to have between ten to twenty listings. I had no idea.
I learned that real estate agents are really Independent Contractors so their personal brand is as critical as the brand they work with. Did you know that?
I learned about "short sales", banks and foreclosure and new ways to stop a foreclosure and work with the system, if you have a good real estate lawyer who is working with your agent.
I hope the group I spoke to learned as much I did. It's not always talking...it's also listening.
Thanks for the invite Robb Spearman...and thanks for giving me more knowledge than I had BEFORE I was honored to address your company.
