Last week I shot a long form live video with Tim Smith and David Childers, and as soon as it finished, I started getting requests for one specific excerpt.
I’m happy to deliver it as today’s episode of the Tom Ferry Podcast Experience.
Tim Smith has already closed $300 million in sales in 2021, so anytime you can get a mega-producer’s take on things, it’s worth listening.
And in just about 15 minutes, we cover many of the most pressing topics in our industry today:
- The fundamental baseline for success as a real estate agent
- How to overcome the “Even if I sell, where would I go?” dilemma
- The changing definition of “listing appointment”
- The one question you should be asking every homeowner today
And much more! Don’t miss this one.
