  • Micheal discusses an agent he is working with who is opening a restaurant as part of his branding strategy.
  • Real estate agents should strive to become people of interest.
  • People make big decisions when they are relaxed. This is why people buy real estate on the weekend.

  • People need to understand the entertainment aspect of prospecting. People make decisions when they’re having fun together.
  • The top agents are best at entertaining people and making them feel comfortable.

  • Ask how you can do your own version of what other successful people are doing.
  • Look outside your market and look outside your industry to find new ways to differentiate yourself.
  • Micheal speaks to how his clients have pivoted during the pandemic. His clients are using virtual seminars, virtual summits, Facebook Lives, and other ways to offer virtual experiences.
  • He recommends being highly engaged with your current client base, highly engaged with your past client base, pumping out content to your database all the time, hosting weekly podcasts, writing a book, and working a system to generate attention and leads.
  • This is an industry that you can dominate.
  • The biggest challenge he ever faced was coaching a team to a championship.
  • If Micheal could go back in time, he would get coaching earlier in life.
  • His biggest advice to a new real estate agent is to prospect 2-4 hours every day.
