The Team Advantage!

I was recently chatting with someone who has just started in the Real Estate business about our team and I was telling him that being part of a team is a huge advantage over being an individual Realtor.

1) Problem Solving. When one of our team members is having a problem, we collectively kick it around and almost always one of our team members comes up with a workable solution.   It is pretty much impossible to think of all the possible solutions by yourself no matter how smart you are or think you are.   Within our group there is a lot of experience and free thought which we encourage.

2) Cover. Our business comes in waves and there are a lot of times that I cannot be everywhere or a team member cannot be in more than one place at the time.   This is when we call on another team member to cover for the overwhelmed team member.   This has a huge impact as sometimes it is important to be at 2 places at the same time but physically impossible.   With a team it is possible!

3) Ideas. When we need new marketing ideas or efficiency ideas or whatever we need, we kick them around just like problem solving.  If we hit on a good idea, we then kick it around some more within the group to refine it. Continue reading this post

4 Tips To Building a Real Estate Team

To grow a city you need infrastructure. To grow a Real Estate team you need the same thing.

I say this because my wife Donna and I tried to grow a team before we were ready. I see other Realtors do the same thing we did. They are successful right out of the gate so they want to duplicate that success with a team. The problem is that they do not have the systems and other key growth factors in place to make a “team” successful.

A team needs 4 key items in place before they will be able to grow successfully.

1) A team needs systems in place to handle leads, client care, and all the problems that are inevitable in Real Estate. Without systems the ball will get dropped a lot and everyone will get frustrated. One agent may do very well without systems because of their force of personality or their contact base but this is not something that is easily duplicated. To grow a team you need systems that will allow everyone to duplicate success if they just follow the system!

2) The team needs an adequate amount of leads to keep everyone busy. Without leads Realtors die on the vine. Again, they will get frustrated and begin to drift. Your team needs leads and/or the tools to acquire leads or they will become a group with a bad attitude and it is downhill from there. Continue reading this post
