Another Realtor® Added to HomeGain’s Million Dollar Club

We’re pleased to announce that Alan Shafran, Realtor® with Prudential California Realty, has reached the one million dollar mark in gross lifetime commissions with HomeGain’s AgentEvaluator® program!

Alan is the second real estate agent to be inducted into the HomeGain Million Dollar Club. Eric Pakulla of RE/MAX Advantage Realty in Maryland was the first AgentEvaluator member to reach the one million dollar mark in 2007.

“We are pleased that Alan and other Realtors are finding tremendous success with AgentEvaluator,” stated Louis Cammarosano, General Manager at HomeGain. ”Each quarter we add dozens of new members to the AgentEvaluator Silver Club ($50,000 in gross commissions from HomeGain leads), Gold Club ($75,000 in gross commissions) and Platinum Club ($125,000 in gross commissions) which now top 200, 250 and 300 members, respectively.”

“HomeGain has been instrumental to building my online business,” stated Alan Shafran. “AgentEvaluator consistently puts me in touch with home buyers and sellers in my area. HomeGain is the secret sauce to growing my client list, to closing 20 percent additional homes per year, and to making me one of the top Realtors® in the U.S.”

“The success of HomeGain members in these challenging times highlights the quality of Realtors in our network and the efficacy of our programs,” continued Louis Cammarosano. “Unlike our competitors who incessantly tout their traffic statistics, we choose instead to highlight the success of our real estate agents.”

Lives of The Realtors: Mitch Ribak Before Real Estate

It’s been an interesting road I have had so far in my life. My goal was always to be successful and I have been. I have also lost just a little more than I have made in my lifetime. I was thinking about that today.

Then I started thinking about the past 8 years in Real Estate and how it has all come to where I am currently. I started thinking about when I decided to get my license and really had no idea what to expect. I know it seemed like one of the easiest things in the world. Yeah right!

There was no way it was more difficult than running an Internet Company, flying 25 days a month to some hotel or conference and speaking about how radio groups needed to learn how to use the Internet to grow their business.

One thing most of you don’t know about me as my first Internet business was a Dating Service. Not only did I have the dating service, I had an advice column called Oh and there was the radio show, Ask Mitch The Date Doctor, that played on 45 radio stations around the country.

So, yes, my venture into the Internet back in 1996 came from my imagination that there has to be a better way to do business.

I worked for Great Expectations Video Dating Service as their Director from 1993 to mid 1996. It was the only time since I was 23 that I hadn’t worked for myself. I spent half of 1996 trying to find a company that would build a dating software for me that I could use over the Internet.

Funny thing was that at that time they all told me it wasn’t possible to do data integration over the Internet. I didn’t believe them of course so for a half a year I searched and talked to tons of companies Continue reading this post

The Value of Professional Networking

Last week Mitch Ribak, Founder of eHomesRealtyNetwork and, visited our team here in Denver, Colorado for a training and knowledge transfer exercise. Mitch and I have been keeping in touch since November 2006 after I met Mitch resulting from one of HomeGain’s Winning Agent Calls.

When I first met Mitch I was just a team of one trying to figure out this whole Internet Marking thing. I was reasonably comfortable with the website development, however I was struggling with how do I bring customers to my website and then convert them to leads then to clients and closings. A friend of mine had connected me to HomeGain’s BuyerLink product so there I was.

I had a website and some good marketing but now what do I do with it?

The same month after listening to Mitch’s presentation I had my first Internet client under contract. Yippee! I was on the running to making my first million, NOT.

With much continued effort I continued to find limited success, touching base with Mitch once every 3-4 months when I would find myself struggling the most. He would help me get over the hump then I would hit the ground running again. Continue reading this post
