  • While my other courses will help get the student ready to fully understand all of the material, this course is intended as a stand alone course. It will help to have some knowledge of the business though, either through on the job experience or from my other classes.

Most agents don't have any "exit strategy" and wind up working their business until they are too old to work it anymore. Most agents don't have a retirement plan. Most agents don't know that they can earn money from their business long after they have stopped working themselves. You are not "most agents"! You now have the resource that will enable you to retire with an income. This course is your answer.

Who is the target audience?
  • New agents who want to start their business CORRECTLY from the start.
  • Agents who have been in the business awhile and are hoping one day they can retire.
  • Agents who are getting ready to retire and have time to spend correcting mistakes and improving their structure for a sale.

Having proven and well-documented systems will make your business more valuable than just having a client list.

Systems are what will earn you the "big bucks"

The intention of this course is to teach you what you need to do to be a huge success so that you can document the process and teach it to your replacement and make $$$. This is the first system to be mastered and documented. Having a solid morning routine and formal night planning are key steps to a star agent's success!

Morning & night planning

This lesson teaches you a scheduling technique that far surpasses a standard calendar

and it is teachable to the agent who buys your business.

More than just a schedule

You have to track the outcome of all of your conversations to know how effective you are. This will then allow the buyer of your business to estimate how their "number" compares to your "number" so they know what to expect as a result of their efforts.

What's YOUR number?

If you have the best one, sellers will come

This will lock-in your buyers, make them faithful to you, so they can be a part of what you are selling

Very few agents even know what this is

Your video real estate coach!

I have been in real estate for 9 years. I started in 2006, when the market was starting to decline quickly. In 2007, my first full year in the business, I won the "Rookie of the Year" award. 2008-2009 were rough and humbling years for me. I did more sales than the average agent, but not anywhere near my capabilities or desires. In 2010 I had a "rebirthing" of my business. I got truly committed. I worked with multiple real estate coaches over the last 5 years and from testing their strategies and developing my own, I have created a straight forward way to grow your business exponentially. I am living proof. In 2012 I won a Centurion award (a Century 21 Award that means you have done a high level of production, around $250,000 GCI). In 2013, I won the Double Centurion (which means I did over twice that much production). And in 2014 I won the Double Centurion again. I also received my broker's license in 2013, which would enable me to go off on my own and gave me additional knowledge. I stayed with Century 21, however, through the end of 2014. Watch my first video where I walk you through my own production and income growth over the last 5 years. And... get busy and do it yourself!
