The Best Apps for Productivity and Organization

The holiday season is an overwhelming time filled with friends, family and parties. It is easy to find yourself busy and a little more disorganized. Here are some easy ways to ensure you are managing your time effectively, so you can continue to grow your business.

The Power & Profitability of Perspective: Buyers & Sellers

Hey, agents. I’m sure we’ve all been told to build a bridge and get over it. Kind of harsh, you think? So how about we—build a bridge and meet in the middle? It often seems there is a cavernous divide between buyers and sellers—and their respective agents—in real estate transactions. Both parties seem to forget the time(s) they played the opposing role. So, in order to be a GREAT real estate agent, it’s your responsibility to balance your client’s interests with those of the negotiating party. Become the bridge, because ultimately, meeting in the middle will help you prioritize your client. You’d be surprised how powerful and profitable a little empathy and psychological awareness can be!

Content Ideas For Your Facebook

According to Sprout Social, 79% of internet users log on to Facebook, and every 8 out of 10 Americans are on the internet. That is a big deal. If you are not using Facebook as a platform to market yourself and gain leads, I would think again. To get you started, or just to give your creative brain a break, here are some content ideas to fill your Facebook feed!

Villager Spotlight: Dan Lee

Meet Dan Lee, Village agent and Team Leader of the Elite Team.  

The Elite Team is a group of Realtors with their own unique views of the real estate market without compromising integrity and values. 

Dan, along with his wife Vivian, run the Elite Team with the mindset that by providing great agents with the means to succeed, it will lead to more satisfied clients. 

RISMedia recently interviewed Dan on his leadership philosophy and how he attracts and retains great agents. 

"It is true that I’ve yet to fire an agent, but by no means does that mean that I haven’t had agents not perform to expectations. The reason for my agent retention is two-fold: First is the hiring process; there are specific criteria that I hold myself to when it comes to the hiring process. Secondly, every agent that I hire I truly believe that they have the mindset for success, but are lacking the tools for success. It is my job to provide those tools to them. I try to have a dynamic training approach; I take the time to sit with an agent and try to figure out the best way to get them to perform better. I don’t consider my model exceptional, but I do believe in some counts I have been very blessed with the hires that I have made so far."

Congratulations Dan and the Elite Team! We love being your Village.
