One Big Fire

By Michael Reese

So the big question is… How are agents like us… who didn’t get an opportunity to invest in a franchise early … who are spending time and money to sale homes building someone else a saleable asset… how do we grow our business, but still build wealth and get a piece of the pie that’s not dependent on us working more hours… that is the question and this podcast will give you the answers…

The best life to live is a life by strategy. Not by your next transaction.

OneBigFire: Dan Hilsman built his team to 90+ agent in 12 months, now it's taken on a life of it's own.
OneBigFire: Dan Hilsman built his team to 90+ agent in 12 months, now it's taken on a life of it's own.
Dan Hilsman is simply put a great man. He went on line and watched a YouTube video with Jay Kinder who explained EXP Realty. He did not know Jay from Adam. He had one goal to leave his current brokerage to find a place to build his business. Dan did not put much value on attracting or recruiting agents. That was not his goal, you could say agents reached out to him. As a solo practitioner, Dan's vision for his business has now expanded way beyond what he could imagine. I tell Dan story all the time to people who are don't understand the power of the EXP Realty business model.  Dan had one goal, his big "why" is to retire his wife. Well you know what they say, when the "WHY" is clear, the "How" is easy. Dan business now grows from the efforts of others. The efforts of true collaboration of a few agents who believed there had to be a better way.

Gogo after 6 short years in the Real Estate business. Got motivated to add more streams of income to her business after attending a Toney Robbin conference. Like most people she heard about the EXP opportunity but did not think it was for her. Now she is inspired and ready to help EXP Realty expand their innovated cloud based brokerage model.

GoGo said the one pieces of advice she would give herself if she could go back in time. Would be to join EXP Realty sooner.  To find out how she is attracting agents and not recruiting leveraging social media listen to this entire episode.
