Today's guest is Damian Tabor of All Pro Homes. He's new to the biz so we discuss things to avoid when getting started and how important it is to start with the right mindset. Here's what you'll learn if you feel like listening: Invest in getting your mindset right or be miserable...your choice. #padsessions is basically an open jam session for Realtors. Guests come together from various walks of life to add their 2 cents on the world of Real Estate.…from current market conditions to design, tech, entrepreneurship, marketing, media and culture. There is no shortage of practical advice for buyers and sellers to help you be successful homeowners and it’s the place to be if you’re a Realtor looking to grow your business. This one has it all. I shoot the shit with friends and industry players just like the good old days where me and my friends would sit around bouncing ideas off of each other and discussing the state of the union around the things we love.

#padsessions 005 | Real Estate CAN Make You Happy | Michael Padilla x Gino Pronos
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.

#padsessions 004 | Waiting Can Cost You | George Ristau x Ron Ricchio x Gino Pronos
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.

#padsessions 003 | George Ristau | Just Be You, Bro
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.

#padsessions 001 | Ruben Camacho | Real Estate Is Pretty Basic...
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. Guests come together from various walks of life to add their 2 cents on the world of Real Estate.…from current market conditions to design, tech, entrepreneurship, marketing, media and culture.
