I sat down with a brand new real estate agent, Amanda, who is still in training to get her perspective on the real estate industry. We talk about her process of getting a real estate license and how she choose the school and how she ended up at her real estate brokerage. We also explored how expectation are not always set properly before starting real estate classes. This will be valuable for anyone thinking about starting real estate pre-license classes and what to expect after you obtain your real estate license. #realestate #realestatelicense #realtortraining Follow Amanda: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/amandahillockrealestate/ Follow Me Online Here: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ginopronos/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ginopronos/ Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ginopronos/ Snapchat: https://www.snapchat.com/add/ginopronos Twitter: https://twitter.com/ginopronos Podcast: https://www.anchor.fm/ginopronos Website: https://www.ginopronos.com/ Search For Properties: https://gino-pronos.allprohomes.com/index.php?rtype=map --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/ginopronos/support
Was a little caught off guard with this one.  Got a call from Damian asking me to share my thoughts on dressing "professionally" and how it might affect my real estate biz. I used to rebel against dressing up just to appease potential clients. I eventually realized that, as a client service pro, I should always be representing my client's best interest and not my own. When I dress up I am projecting that I am someone who takes his business very seriously and it means a lot to me. If it means a lot to me then the sale of that given house means a lot to me and if the sale of that house means a lot to me then it means a lot to the seller and if it means a lot to the seller then it's more likely to mean a lot to the potential buyer. Does dressing up make me a "better" Realtor? No. Does it give me some insider knowledge that wasn't there before? No. Will it allow me to provide a hight level of service? Well, maybe. Something so simple like putting on a suit when I could have put on jeans could cascade down and actually influence a sale. And even if it doesn't, it allows me to believe that it is, which in turn makes me more confident in my activities and if I'm more confident then I may provide better information or have an edge when negotiating a deal (which allows me to represent my client's best interest even better). All because I put on a tie. P.S. Even if all of this is bs and how you dress doesn't affect your business in anyway...the worst thing that is going to happen is you're going to look fly. I weep for you. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/ginopronos/support
I sit down with fellow Realtor Damian Tabor and we have a dense jam session on how to market our business during this quarantine. All of this has encouraged everyone to get creative with their marketing by leveraging telecommunication and digital marketing. We are all forced to make pivots and adjust on the fly but that doesn't mean we have to shut down. There are lots of ways to stay top of mind, even from your couch thanks to technology. In this episode we brainstorm some ideas on how to position ourselves, through content marketing, so that when the storm clears we will have laid the foundation to build on and be the go to options.

There is no law or rule that says you have to be represented by a real estate agent but if you're not, it's a huge mistake. If you are only considering the money you will save on commission, and not money you will lose because of all the mistakes you will make, you're a fool. It will wind up costing you so much more money in holding costs/time/labor/negotiating a bad deal for yourself than the commission you'll spend to do it right.

Two Realtors jamming about lots of shit... 1. Clients are NOT always right. They have a responsibility too. 2. The importance of being willing to walk away from a deal when you know it's a bad fit. If you know working together is going to create negative energy, it is not in your best interest or the best interest of the clients. 3.

Today's guest is Michael Padilla from All Pro homes. On this episode, Michael and I talk about making your career elevate your quality of life vs it consuming you and bringing you down. If you don't want to listen, here's what you'll learn: Real estate (or any career) can and will bring you down IF you let it. There are many stresses to deal with in the day to day running your business but you have to remember that you're in control and it can help you craft the life you want. Your choice.

Today's guests are George Ristau and Ron Ricchio. George is the Managing Broker/Owner of Weichert, Realtors - All Pro and Ron is the President of Chicagoland Home Mortgage Services. On this episode, George, Ron and I discuss current economic conditions and how they can affect home loan affordability. You'll notice I don't add much to the conversation. These guys are such experts in their fields that I found it better to just shut up and listen. If you don't want to listen, here's what you'll learn: As the economy fluctuates, home affordability can be affected, keeping you out of the home you want. This is the cost of waiting.

Today's guest is George Ristau, Managing Broker/Owner of Weichert, Realtors - All Pro. George is a walking real estate encyclopedia with nearly 4 decades of experience in various roles inside the real estate industry. There is nothing he hasn't see or overcome in this game. Frankly its hard to keep up. On this episode, George and I discuss the importance of being authentic at all times, even if that means you stray away from the middle. If you don't want to listen, here's what you'll learn: 1. Playing this "character" of Realtor might seem like the right move since it's more likely to appeal to a wider audience but being yourself is going to increase your chances of success within a smaller group...probably the right move. 2. Taxes suck.

Today's guest is Ruben Camacho, he is a top producing agent that has gone from rookie to superstar in less than a year and he's here to share some of the things that he has been doing since day one to fuel his prospecting efforts. On this episode, Ruben and I discuss various ways that agents can prospect and how the most effective thing an agent can do is to learn how to talk to people like a human being, not a robot making a presentation. If you don't want to listen, here's what you'll learn: 1. You'll be better off striking human conversations with people and waiting the the inevitable "Oh, by the way..." moment. (This is your opportunity to strike). 2. If you don't actually, sincerely give a shit about the people you're helping, you won't go very far in this business. 3. The more you chase the money, the less money you'll make. #padsessions is basically an open jam session for Realtors.
