How to Stop Making Misteaks

general real estate Feb 07, 2019

Remember before you became a REALTOR® and you thought about what a fun and rewarding life it was going to be?  You were going to spend all your time looking at amazing properties, socializing with the coolest people, and cashing fat commission checks!


Little did you know the volume of blood, sweat, and tears, required for every single one of those commission checks, many of which are surprisingly gaunt, when compared to the effort expended.

Worse yet, if you’ve been a REALTOR® for any stretch of time, you have most certainly wasted gallons of blood, sweat, and tears over a period of months, with certain clients, and…


Something went off the rails, and you now have NOTHING to show for all that time and effort.

The truth is that this business can be like a maze sometimes; it’s easy to make a simple mistake, forget where you are, turn the wrong way, and… Poof!

I’m guessing that you lost at least $50,000 in commissions last year, and you are completely unaware of how or why.

I’m not going to sit here and preach to you about how dumb you are for losing all that cashola.  Over the course of my 14-year Real Estate career, I missed out on so many commission checks, it makes me cringe to think about it.  Read my own sad story here.

If only I had known early in my career, what I know now…

For one thing, I would never lose a listing to anyone else, ever again.

But, there’s a lot more to Knowledge First, than just the World’s Greatest Listing Presentation.  (Is that too braggy?)

There are so many simple systems and habits that anyone can easily incorporate into their Real Estate business, eventually reducing those mistakes to as close to zero as possible.

This is like finding a bag full of $50K in cash that you misplaced…  Every year!

And guess what?  It’s not more work!  It’s less work!  Incorporating simple systems and habits makes your life easier, not harder. 

So, how come I know all this stuff now, and I didn’t when I was an active agent?

It’s because I have TIME now!

I was a high-performance Top 1% REALTOR® for more than a decade, running off my feet, making deals, having fun, and yes, making my fair share of $10,000 mistakes.

I never had time to get off the treadmill and STOP, in order to figure out how to do things better.  That takes time.  And I didn’t have any.

Now, I spend my time reading books on productivity, studying other Real Estate trainers, and continually refining and enhancing the Knowledge First Learning System.

I’m expanding my knowledge, every single day!

If I went back to being a full-time agent right now, I would blow everyone out of the water.  Top 1%?  Child’s play.  I would be in the Top 0.1%, including teams, as an individual agent.

But, over the course of the last several months, building this new business, my passion has changed.

Now, I want YOU to blow everyone out of the water!  My job satisfaction is now tied directly to your success. 

I’ve made it as easy as possible for you to make a huge leap forward, practically overnight, and then expand on your knowledge, every single week.
