Create Client Advocates

When you can dazzle clients with exceptional customer service, you have an opportunity to develop a network of advocates who will become walking talking billboards for your business. Essentially, these folks become your influencers, recommending you to anyone who needs a great agent. Establishing this network will dramatically increase your leads while decreasing your advertising costs.

Secure Every Listing

Top-producing agents walk into every listing appointment knowing exactly what needs to be done to secure the listing.  This includes effectively touring the home, presenting the price and outlining a marketing plan so the sellers have total confidence in their agent’s abilities. Remember, home pricing is a skill within itself, so be prepared to set the right price and never again encounter an expired listing.

Build a Buyer Presentation

Before diving into a transaction, you should be able to guide a homebuyer through the entire purchasing process. Outline what to expect in a clear, detailed buyer presentation that includes information on how you’ll search for the home, frequency of communication with the buyer and what closing day will look like.

Personal Branding

Next-level real estate agents have mastered the art of building a brand. Your name should be synonymous with real estate in the minds of your clients. An air-tight personal brand will ensure that you are the first-person clients think of when they have a real estate need.


Naturally, buyers and sellers are going to have objections when it comes to the real estate process. Whether a seller wants more for their home (despite its appraised value) or a first-time buyer wants to back out due to market concerns, next-level real estate agents understand how to field these concerns and propose a solution that the client supports. When you can handle objections like a pro, both you and your client relationships can win!
