Building your Real Estate Sales Team

1. Are you managing people or are you managing a system that manages people?
The number one challenge real estate agents have is “time starvation” due to the simple fact they are trying to do everything vs. delegating non-revenue producing activities to someone else. Why systems? You are able to stop reacting and accomplish your specific objectives on a daily basis. You will be able to predict your results if your business is managed and measured consistently. Your capacity for growth will increase dramatically.

2. Do you have a job or are you running a business?
How much revenue are you producing on a consistent basis when you aren’t at work? This is the simple distinction between having a job and running a business. A business generates ongoing revenues regardless of whether you are there or not. With a job, you don’t show up, the revenues stop. Do you want to keep trading hours for dollars? “But my clients want to meet with and work with me”. That’s where you’re wrong. The consumer doesn’t hire you they hire the way you run your business. How are you currently running your real estate business?

3. How do you create your systems before assembling your team?
Take the time and write down every task and action that is required to run your business. Be very detailed in this step so that you don’t have questions come up after you have created your team. Now describe how each action step is to be completed, how it will be measured, and who is responsible.

4. Managing your team
This is where the real work takes place. You have been a successful salesperson for years so it should be real easy to assemble a group of people, tell them how “I do it”, they do it, and everyone’s happy, right? It doesn’t quite work that way. You must transition from salesperson to leader or manager. If you’re not a good manager you will experience high turnover which will decrease your production overnight. Here are some simple steps to follow: Have a business plan, be organized, inspire your team, and constantly be evaluating and measuring.

5. Basic activities for your real estate team
Let’s get specific with the general activities for your real estate team.

Success Stories

Kelly`s response to another firms recruiting email:

"Hi Mike, Thank you for your email. To answer some of your questions: Yes I am VERY happy with WilkinsonERA, I had originally signed up with them to save money on fees and to take home more of my commission since the market was declining, however since the change I have already seen the benefits along with many of my peers.

Yes I have met my goals and to give you an example, I closed 15 contracts from 3/15/2012 to 4/30/12. I do not need as much training at this point of my career, but of course W&A offers the best education and so much more.

Other agency's have the wrong idea about WilkinsonERA when it comes to training, we have an outstanding training program coupled with excellent support. From experience I can say it is way better than many of the national and local agencies that claim they have the best education and opportunities for realtors. Thank you again for reaching out to me and I assure you, this is one company that I will stick with for a very long time."
