Episode Highlights: 

  • Make recruitment about the agent. Ask a lot of questions about them and their goals.
  • If they’re willing to sit down with you, they have a pain point.
  • Understand the different personality types you may be working with.
  • It’s about how you listen and how you solve problems.
  • Cory’s brokerage is really predicated on culture. They create a lot of video content to showcase their culture and differentiate themselves.
  • Anyone at their brokerage who refers an agent gets entered for a Mercedes raffle. Keri copied this strategy.

  • When talking, agree and repeat.
  • Understand the presentation you’re making.
  • Their brokerage likes having a variety of personality traits.
  • When hiring, figure out what the avatar is.
  • In many situations, people grow too big, too fast.
  • Once you build a strong culture, people will come to you.
  • Look within and analyze where your talents are best serving growth. 
  • Make the list of all the responsibilities in your job, circle what you don’t love doing or you’re not good at doing, and that will help you develop your first job description to hire somebody.
  • Set realistic expectations for the people who are coming on to your team.
  • Make sure your presentation is consistent and have fun with the interview.
  • Don’t burn bridges when things don’t work out and leave the doors open.
