I’ll get straight to the point.

I just completed a 14-year Real Estate career.  In my second year, I earned $590,000 in commissions, and my career took off from there.  Within a couple years, I was making WAY more than that, as an individual agent.

The point is, I completely understand not having enough time!

I learned everything by trial and error; “error” being the key word.  I figure the sum total of my mistakes and missed opportunities cost me about $2M over those 14 years.

If only I could go back in time with the knowledge I have now…

I’m guessing you shorted yourself at least $50K last year, and you don’t even realize it.

That’s frustrating, but it’s more frustrating that you don’t have the time to learn some new skills.

Well, what if there was a way for you to take a huge leap forward in your knowledge and skills, practically overnight?

That’s Knowledge First, and it’s available, right now.

To Video or Not to Video?

marketing Jan 11, 2019

If you’re marketing on social media to capture leads, you absolutely must be using video.  REALTORS® who use video on Facebook ads consistently get far cheaper and better quality results. If you think the future of social media marketing is not all about video, you’re not paying attention. 

“If that’s true, why don’t you use video more, Ted?”

Mainly because I’m not trying to capture unknown potential clients, like you are.  If you’re reading this, it’s because I’ve already specifically targeted you as a potential client for Knowledge First.

If I was going to make a comeback as an active agent (I’m not), I would most definitely concentrate my marketing on Facebook ads, and they would ALL be video. 

Right now, 99% of REALTORS® are doing social media completely wrong, just randomly burning their time and money.  Why bother?  Spend a few bucks on proper training and learn how to do it...

How to Make an Extra $1.6M

listing presentation Jan 04, 2019

Over the course of my 14-year career, I sold close to 1,000 properties.  I won the vast majority of my listing presentations, but I estimate I lost—on average—one per month. 

That’s 168 missed opportunities over 14 years, with an average commission of $9,525.

That’s $1,600,000.

Writing that number makes me a bit nauseous..

I could sure use an extra $1.6M right now.  I'd finally buy that Lambo...

I had a very good listing presentation, or at least I thought so.  Now, I realize it was garbage compared to this beautiful thing I’ve been obsessing over, for the past several months!

It’s not fair, really.  There’s no possible way that you (or any other successful agent) could possibly devote the time it takes to develop:

“The World’s Most Powerful and Compelling Real Estate Listing Presentation”

But I do. 

In fact, now that I’m retired from being an active agent, this is ALL I do now. ...
