Looking For The Secret Ingredient During The RE Interview

Looking For The Secret Ingredient During The Interview

dopeI have been interviewing new agents for many years now. I enjoy the process immensely. This might sound like a crazy notion, but I like looking for that key trait…that one thing that will pinpoint who is going to be successful and who isn’t. It isn’t black and white or an exact science either. Sometimes they throw you a curve ball. I have hired meek, mild-mannered types only to watch then turn…

While I was lying on the beach in the sunny Caribbean there were a bunch of different coloured tents selling the usual touristy wares; shark teeth necklaces, shell frames and magnets, tie die t-shirts, and lots of home-made chachkas.

Mastermind for November 7th. The Reverse Cold Call and The Power of Rentals

by mark mclean

20121109-211141.jpg

Well, I’m sitting in the lounge waiting for my flight to Orlando. I am heading down for REBarCamp and NAR, the once yearly convention for Realtors. Since I have nearly an hour to kill and about 15% battery life on my iPad, this is as good a time as any to write a blog about today’s Mastermind session.
