How to Get Millennial Agents to Join Your Team, Part 2

Big Block Realty wants all our agents to have the latest helpful tools to increase their success.

Being a successful real estate agent requires you to attract the right people to join your team.

Building a successful career with a 100% commission real estate business is about spotting talent and choosing your team carefully.

Since millennials are the biggest demographic of home buyers right now (and consumers in general), it might be a good idea to start attracting a few to your team. The baby boomers are getting ready to retire, so it’s time to start training the next generation of real estate agents anyway.

Here’s some more tips for attracting millennials to your team.

1.) Teamwork-

Millennials place a lot of value on being part of a group effort larger than themselves. Show them that your company extols their values. Let them know they have plenty of people to turn to for anything they need on the job.

Give them a warm welcome by pairing them up with a mentor for a while. Make sure they’re meeting the whole team throughout their training period.

2.) Community Involvement-

Millennials want to do more than make money. They are very motivated to get involved in organizations that give something back to the community where they live. This can be anything from a 5k to a food drive, or anything that helps people in need.

These kinds of events are also a great way for new agents to make contacts and meet people, as well as get to know their territory. Find a good cause and get your company involved.

3.) Keep Them In The Loop-

Millennials don’t want to be a cog in a greater machine. They don’t want to be treated like worker bees. They want to be a vital part of wherever they decide to make a career.

They want to have meaningful and honest relationships with their coworkers and employers. This means getting to know them and keeping them informed about what’s going on in the company.

If you make them feel like they’re just a number, you’re never going to be able to keep them around for very long.

Big Block Realty wants to share their knowledge with agents to help them learn the helpful tools that will increase their success.

Consider Big Block Realty if you would like a career with a 100% commission real estate brokerage!

Real estate requires good team building skills like no other career out there.

How to get Millennial Agents to Join Your Team, Part 1

Big Block Realty wants all our agents to have the latest helpful tools to increase their success.

Being a successful real estate agent requires you to attract the right people to join your team.

Building a successful career with a 100% commission real estate business is about spotting talent and choosing your team carefully.

The millennials are all grown up. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know them, if you don’t understand them, or if you’re just scared of them, they are the future.

They are currently the biggest and fastest growing consumer demographic, and when it comes to real estate, they make up the vast majority of first time home buyers. And millennials want to do business with fellow millennials.

That means our industry needs to figure out how to get millennials interested in careers in real estate, and how to get them to stay for the long haul. Here are some ideas.

1.) Excite Them-

Millennials don’t want to go to work with a boring, stagnant company. They want to work at a dynamic company that’s willing to try new things. That means a lot of companies need to throw out the old playbook and start coming up with new ways to do business.

Think about craft beer brewers, coffee houses, and tech start ups. The workplace doesn’t get much more hip and fun than that! Can your business emulate them? Because you’re going to need to. Good luck.

2.) Speaking Of Tech Start Ups…-

Your company needs to stay on the cutting edge of technology related to real estate. That means apps for everything, remote business options, and easy communication.

Remember, while you may have learned about computers from Oregon Trail, millennials were born into a world with the internet and Angry Birds. Their mobile devices are their everything. Incorporate tech accordingly.

3.) Give Your Team A Long Leash-

Millennials don’t want to held down by nine to five jobs like their parents. They want to be able to move about freely and not have a boss breathing down their neck and watching their every move.

Offer millennials some autonomy to come and go as they please. This doesn’t mean you have to surrender authority, just don’t get so caught up in keeping tabs on your employees so long as they are performing.

This is why we want to provide our agents and potential agents with as many tools, tips and advice as we can give them as they strike out in their new careers as real estate professionals.

Building a reputation for a 100% commission real estate business is about more than just making sales. It’s about building great relationships based on trust and hard work. Soak up as much knowledge as you can to make your career in real estate a successful one!

There are different types of people and there are different types of real estate agents. Some are outgoing and lively. Others are more serious and reserved. No matter what type of person you are and no matter what type of real estate agent you are, there are some traits that spell success for a real estate career.

If you can find a way to incorporate these traits, you will have more success in your real estate career.

– Successful Real Estate Professionals Don’t Procrastinate 

You may have heard the adage “why put off until tomorrow what you can do today.” This definitely applies to real estate pros who have achieved success. Returning calls and emails right away, making contacts and following up is part of this.

– Great Real Estate Agents Know How to Communicate 

Not only do great real estate agents know what to say, they also know how to say it. This means being aware of how clients like to communicate and adapting communication methods to fit client wishes.

It’s about learning a client’s language and then speaking that language to achieve mutual understanding.

– Having Success in Real Estate Career Means Being Available 

The day of a real estate professional isn’t usually 9 to 5 Monday through Friday. Clients have questions about listings and want to see properties at all hours of the day.

To be successful in real estate, you must make yourself available to clients on their schedules. Not being available can mean the difference between keeping a client and losing him or her to another agent who was available.

– Successful Real Estate Professionals Take Time to Explain 

When a home buyer or seller first approaches the real estate process, he or she can have a lot of unanswered questions. A good real estate agent will take the time to answer these questions and explain everything that home buyers and sellers need to know.

Research shows that the most satisfied sellers name regular communication to be their top priority.

– Awesome Real Estate Agents Know how to get Leads 

Great agents know the importance of getting leads in whatever forms they can. Instead of relying on just traditional methods, they put themselves out there and seek leads from all different avenues.

Successful real estate agents know what works and what doesn’t. They know that different types of leads must be targeted in different ways. They understand that having a social presence is an important part of their career’s long-term success.

In Conclusion – 

Real estate is about providing customer service. Good customer service is about having knowledge and expertise, but it’s also about being authentic. To have success in real estate, one must have passion and be authentic. Agents who have the greatest success are the ones who treat each client like he or she is the only client.

Here at Big Block Realty, we want our agents to experience the greatest possible success. As California’s best 100% commission real estate brokerage, we offer our agents the opportunity to keep their entire commissions while still enjoying all the perks of working with an industry leader such as Big Block.

An agent can use Pinterest to introduce visitors to themselves and their team. Pin some pics of your people with a short biography. Highlight your teams’ experience and make sure your visitors know your team is experienced and knowledgable.

Make your company synonymous with expertise by providing useful information on the market and tips to sell a house. You can even provide useful ideas and instruction on how people can better maintain their homes and properties. Anything that makes you look like an expert is helpful.

Top California Brokerage Tips – How to Manage Client Expectations for Real Estate Success

ID-10048101Real estate is a business of working with people.

There are often unknowns when approaching a real estate deal, but these can be much less stressful for home buyers and sellers when a real estate professional is committed to managing their expectations.

As a real estate professional, it is your job to prepare your clients for certain challenges that may arise.

Building a reputation for a 100% commission real estate business begins with how you behave toward your clients as well as in your personal life. Dedicate the time and resources needed for build the image you want to project.

As a leading flat fee broker in California, we strive to provide our agents with helpful tools that will increase their success. Consider Big Block Realty if you would like to begin an exciting career with a 100% commission real estate brokerage!

Planning, communication and flexibility are some things you can incorporate into your business practices to better manage your client expectations and leave happier more satisfied clients in your wake.

Another way to think about managing expectations is preparing your client for possible outcomes. This can apply to both positive and negative situations.

1. Don’t Scare Your Clients

As a real estate professional, you have an idea of all sorts of worst case scenarios for real estate deals. But sharing this information with your clients will only incite fear and panic.

Instead, prepare your clients for the most likely outcomes. You can tell them that there are certain unpredictable elements, but that by working with you they can feel confident you will handle whatever comes up.

It is important to make clients aware of a few possible (but unlikely) negative scenarios. That way when the negative things don’t happen, they will be relieved and encouraged.

2. Teach Clients What They Can Expect

Clients can get emotional in the home buying or selling process. Buying a home is probably the most important purchase a person will make in his or her lifetime. It’s natural to expect they will enter the process with emotions running high.

However, while the process is complex, you must be able to walk your clients through it from start to finish. Change can be challenging, but when you let your clients know what to expect, they can deal with and minimize their anxiety in the midst of change.

Buyers who move too quickly can sometimes feel pressure to buy a certain home or property and then feel buyer’s remorse. This can lead to buyers backing out of deals.

To ensure that deals are a success from start to finish, real estate professionals should teach clients what to expect and let them know some feelings of uncertainty are normal and can be expected.

3. Have Compassion for Clients 

The world of buying and selling houses can seem very complex from a layman’s perspective. As real estate professionals, it is important that we have compassion and empathy for clients as they approach this process.

We aren’t just helping them find a house or piece of property, we are helping them find a home for their family. It’s crucial to pay attention to the whole person and take into account all mitigating circumstances that might be affecting the process.

By putting ourselves into their shoes, we can begin to imagine what customers are feeling and when we have empathy for what they are experiencing, we are more effective at being real estate practitioners.  

Here at Big Block Realty, agents keep their entire commissions while enjoying the perks of working with an industry leader. As
