Mission Possible. The Ultimate 12 Week RE Sales Contest. Task 12. Share The Love
Well it’s finally over. After 12 gruelling weeks my contest is over and we have a winner. Time for a big shout out to Graham Rowlands who demonstrated a very well-rounded approach to getting points. He didn’t just do one or two things, he approached each challenge with an open eye because he knew that building a routine was key to his success.
So for the last task I asked the agents to share our office experience with agents from other companies. If they enjoyed the past year, my meetings, Mastermind, our social gatherings or even our contest, then share the love with others and if they thought someone would fit well into our environment then they had to let me know. It would be my job to make the connection and let that agent know they were recommended. Sure, it’s kind of a backhanded recruitment strategy but rather than me call random agents isn’t it nice to be recruited not just because you are successful but because other agents think you would add value and fit in to a thriving office?
Finally, as I close out my posts for 2014, I want to encourage real estate managers everywhere to share their meeting topics. It is hard work to keep agents engaged week after week. Sure, when some new initiative, policy change or interesting media story emerges you can build a great meeting around it but other times you just have to come up with something fresh and entertaining. I run 45 meetings a year and I would be the first to admit that some are complete duds but when they are good they are worth sharing. RealtyLab is a perfect vehicle for sharing so if you have something good just let me know, I’ll try it out, I’ll write about it, and I’ll give credit where credit is due. I look forward to all the great ideas in 2015.
