When we’re constantly faced with rejection, it’s easy to feel like all agents are primadonnas and difficult to work with, but that simply isn’t true. Agents are human beings, just like us, and getting a good response from them simply requires some understanding on our part.
So, how can we get into the mind of a Realtor? How can we suss out what’s likely to get them hot for what we’ve got, and what should we avoid saying, altogether?
In this episode, I’m diving into the top 3 objections LOs are faced with, and how to overcome them, once and for all.

How to build a connection with top producers
As the saying goes, birds of a feather flock together. How can we show Realtors that we’re in the same league as them?
How to come at a knee-jerk ‘no’ from a power position
How can we fight the urge to crawl into a ball when we’re told ‘no’ and use rejection as a way to start a conversation?
What to say when we’re told to call back later
So, we’ve been told to call back later. Is there a way to keep a top producer on the line just long enough to entice them?
There are times when fear can be helpful, but far too often, the fear we experience is based on our perceptions of what ‘could’ go wrong, and that holds us in place, too petrified to make any moves (let alone big, audacious ones that get us closer to our dreams!).
How can we get better at distinguishing which fears serve us, and which are only holding us back? What can we do to embolden ourselves to push past our anxieties, either way?
In this episode, I’m getting into the 3 ways fear stops us from reaching our full potential, and how to move beyond it for good.

Everyone with an ounce of ambition ‘wants’ to be successful, but our industry’s statistics speak for themselves: most won’t be. The truth is, wanting to be successful may be a starting point, but in isolation, it just ain’t enough.
So, how can we stop thinking in terms of wanting to be successful, and turn that into a white-hot, can’t-live-without-it necessity? What’s the golden key to crack the code of turning half-baked interests into decisive action?
In this episode, I’m explaining why ‘wanting’ to be successful can only get us so far, and what we should be doing, instead!

The danger of ‘softening’ our problems
Are we tolerating mediocrity because we’ve got into the habit of telling ourselves it’s not ‘that’ bad?

In this episode, I'm sharing how to get better at managing ourselves, so timing never has to stop us from reaching our full potential.

In this episode, I’m delving into the default excuses mortgage pros use that only hold us back from our full potential.
