Big Block Realty Radio: Bravo’s Million Dollar Listings Broker Josh Altman Interview, Part 2

It’s been said that real estate is not a science, it’s an art. Each real estate deal is different. From the buyers and sellers to the property on down to the minute details of the deal…there are no cookie cutter real estate deals.

That’s why it’s so important for a real estate broker or agent to have a great understanding of the real estate industry. This is what allows you to handle each situation that might arise as a professional.

One part of the real estate process is making deals. Negotiation skills are not something we’re born with. They have to be strengthened and cultivated with practice and experience.

For Josh Altman, a top broker and star of Bravo’s hit reality show Million Dollar Listing, negotiating is just another part of a day at the office. But Josh has been doing this for a few years.

We got lots of questions for Josh via social media, especially regarding negotiating.

Whether you are just starting out in your real estate career or even considering a new career with Big Block Realty, we know you will learn some great things from our interview with Josh.

As a former college football player, Josh says he has lots of pressure staying calm under pressure. He was a kicker at Syracuse University and says he had to have “ice water in his veins.”

Apparently that has really paid off for him during the development of his real estate career.

We asked Josh to share some of his best negotiation advice for real estate.

He said, “You have to know your place in the negotiation. If you don’t have the upper hand, you have to figure out how to get it. Talking more in the negotiation process is not a good thing. Don’t rush it and take in the whole situation before you jump in.”

There are many reasons to consider a career as a Realtor with Big Block Realty, California’s leading 100% Commission Brokerage.

One of these is the specialized training we offer our agents.

This applies to topics across the board, but one in particular is social media.

Social media is a big part of building a brand or business and it simply can’t be ignored.

Some people might consider themselves savvy when it comes to social media, but if you are feeling a little less confident, we’re here to help!

We want to equip you with the social media skills so that you can effectively use this marketing medium to reach more customers, strengthen relationships with current customers and close more sales.

Below are a few of the most popular social media platforms and some quick and easy ways you can use them in your real estate career.

1. Facebook –

Probably the most popular social media platform, Facebook is great for real estate professionals because it connects you to your audience. As this platform grows, the potential for connection grows with it.

Think about Facebook as a way to share your content, including current listings, photos of homes, and satisfied customers.

2. Twitter – 

Twitter is more of a conversation and a way you can connect with friends as well as individuals you haven’t met. You can find conversations about topics that interest you and jump right in.

Use Twitter to promote your content and establish yourself as a leader in your industry by sharing your expert opinions.

3. YouTube

Videos are a popular medium for promotion and the real estate industry has embraced that! Now that most phones have decent video cameras, you can shoot quick videos and upload them to YouTube as a way to promote a home or property.

You can also shoot longer, informative videos about your business or as a way to give customers an introduction to what you do.

4. Pinterest 

Pinterest is a virtual bulletin board that allows users to gather images from the web and organize them into categories.

Since there are so many visual aspects of real estate, Pinterest can work to your advantage as a real estate professional.

 

Here at Big Block Realty, we believe in investing in our agents’ success. We are California’s leading 100% commission real estate brokerage and as part of our team, you will keep your entire commission while still enjoying all the perks of working with an industry leader such as Big Block.
