My Biggest Technology Mistakes

This week, I’m talking about the biggest mistakes I’ve made with technology. I’ve made tons of mistakes over the years, and I want to share them with you. Mistake #1: Spending Money Before Researching The first mistake on my list is wasting money on technology or software that didn’t suite me. If something doesn’t mesh […]

Open Houses Can Generate Seller Leads

Some real estate agents are convinced that open houses are a complete waste of time. They make weekends unschedulable, everyone who shows up is represented already anyway, and open houses don’t really sell the house.

My Favorite Mailing Campaigns

I’m excited about today’s Zebra Report because I get to talk about my favorite mailers—both my favorite mailing campaign I sent out and my favorite that I’ve received.

5 Tips for Real Estate Business Planning Success

Business planning is top of mind for most business leaders this time of year.

In all my years of both […]

2022 Real Estate Predictions – Be Brave and Put Your Opinion Out There!

The last two years have had an unprecedented effect on the economy, on the way we interact socially, on the way we shop, on education, and of course, on the real estate market. More than ever, your clients need to hear your voice when it comes to the real estate market and what they can […]

The Real Estate Numbers You Should Track

My favorite thing about numbers is that they do not lie. If I look at an agent’s business, their numbers will give a very clear indication of what’s really going on. Not only do these numbers define past success, they also predict your future. If you don’t know your numbers, you are running blind. When […]

Your Listing Checklist – Naming and Claiming What You Do

In October, The Lones Group hosted our listing presentation class for real estate agents – Stop Losing Listings You Should Have Won.
