Here's what actually works

We’ve all read the Millionaire Real Estate Agent by Gary Keller, heard Tony Robbins speak, and attended endless office meetings with motivational tips & tricks on how to sell real estate. There is no shortage of information available, and much of it is great, but I’m here to tell you what is practically working. My promise to you is that I will only give advice that my team and I actually use to conduct business. I am a full-time high-volume agent with very little time to spare, but I love to help others and it only takes a few minutes a week to write a blog. And hey, agents outside of my area aren’t competition. So enjoy!

This is for you if

  • You are new to the business
  • You are working hard without the results you expected
  • You are sick of ethereal advice and want practicalities that make money now
