The Four Levels of REALTORS®

Nick McLean a team lead, writer and coach in the USA published an interesting article recently in which he talked about the 4 levels of REALTORS®.

It made a lot of sense to me. Here is a summary:

In the real estate world, REALTORS® can be categorized into four levels based on their skills and networks:

Level 1: These REALTORS® primarily assist their friends and acquaintances, but they may not actively seek out homes for them. They mainly focus on arranging property showings.

Level 2: REALTORS® at this stage also work with friends, family, and referrals. They help clients find homes, often through online searches, and share listings with buyers.

Level 3: At this level, REALTORS® expand their client base by…

4 Ways to Get Registrations at Your Next Open House With NO Pushback

Your Open House visitors are guarded about giving up their personal information to a person they hardly know. Here are 4 methods I have used to easily get the information you need for follow up:

  1.      The Extra Information Method

The easiest way to use this technique is to invite lots of questions from the visitor. Encourage them to ask you questions for which you don’t have an answer. Then you have an opportunity to ask for their details so that you can get back to them.

  1.      Be The First to Know Method

For this technique you can suggest that you often hear of other listings coming into this market before they are listed. Or you can suggest that some of the…

The 5 Chemicals Inside Your Clients & How to Manage Them

If you get a chance, read at least the first section of Simon Sinek’s book ‘Leaders Eat Last’. He’s essentially talking about work culture and how to create it.

However, his analysis of the 5 chemicals inside our bodies also lends itself well to understanding how our clients think and behave.

Here are my thoughts.

6 Ways to Prepare Your Buyer for their Home Inspection

Its during the inspection period that many newer agents lose their client and their transaction.

You have invested several evenings and weekends showing your client homes.

Finally, they found one they loved and you worked hard to negotiate and paper a deal with the sellers agent.

Have you ever considered that your clients go through a number of emotional waves?

When they are out shopping with you, their mood will normally be light.

They will get very excited once you tell them their offer has been accepted. Afterward however, they will go into a self-doubt mode and you need to be ready for that.

Their mood will start to lift again as the day for home inspection arrives.

The 4 Kinds of FSBO & How to Work with Them

What is a FSBO? It’s the term many in the real estate industry call a ‘For Sale by Owner’.

For many REALTORS®, the thought of approaching a for sale by owner strikes fear into their hearts. For others, it’s a wonderful opportunity to find more inventory for their buyer clients, or in some cases to win a listing client.

I was watching a video published by Nick McLean, a well-known coach about for sale by owners and he shared some great observations. I compiled his ideas and blended it with my personal experience of working with for sale by owners for over 20 years.

Let’s talk about the different types of by owner you will typically come across. Let’s talk about how you might find some common ground…

If you want to avoid standing around for 2 hours doing nothing at your next Open House. Do these 3 things:

 1. Get it advertised on and your social media accounts

 2. Door knock 5 homes to the left and 5 to the right, plus 10 opposite. Leave a flyer every time.

 3. Use enough directional signs so that you can ‘sign it in’ from the nearest main road.
