Meet today's guest, Merritt Mckenzie, a health care executive who is passionate about growing and scaling organizations through personnel development to impact patients, families, and the community. With over 26 years of experience, starting as an occupational therapist, then a certified hand therapist, Merit later moved into leadership roles including running a sales organization, and lastly took up the role of General Manager. In this episode, Merritt discusses leadership in health care services, with particular emphasis on qualities and tools of great leadership, as well as challenges leaders face with practical solutions. Top Takeaways [01:20] Step into your greatness; Don't be afraid of calculated risks. It is through those risks that you end up learning, developing, and becoming better in your career. [08:22] Critical concepts that emerging healthcare leaders should have: Diversity within the workforce, Embracing Technology, Empowerment Leadership, and Being Innovative. [12:20] Leaders tend to always want to have the answer because they know it already, rather they should be the last to speak and ask more of the questions. [19:14] Lessons learned from successes and failures: Firstly, it is so important that leaders are intentional about mentoring someone but also sponsorship as well. Secondly, be courageous and listen to your inner voice. [26:10] Personal leadership tools: Self-awareness; leaders need to be aware of the impact they are having on others around them. Another is that we should be obsessively curious about people around us if we hope to be impactful in their lives. Other tools include the Strengths Finder tool and the Predictive Index. [30:22] Lessons from an influential leader: Treat people well, be thoughtful and kind to people. [38:30] Leaders do not take time to engage their employees and strategize to harness the full value of their employees. Leaders also often fail to be intentional about listening to all stakeholders at every level of the organization. [44:32] Best career advice ever: "Be You"; there's only one person that can be the best you there is, and that's you. [48:25] Key attributes of an effective Healthcare leader: Engage, Learn, Adapt, Lead. [52:08] Professional Groups recommended for listeners; A.C.H.E (American College of Healthcare Executives), N.A.H.S.E (National Association of Health Service Executives), The Private Directors Association, The Black Corporate Board Readiness Program. [54:20] Books Recommended: "Unleashed: The Unapologetic Leader's Guide to Empowering Everyone Around You" by Frances X. Frei "The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership" by John C. Maxwell [56:13] Advice for health organizations: Be intentional about having a program to develop leaders, and make no assumptions that it is happening organically. [57:43] I want to be intentional about helping team members and colleagues grow and prosper personally and professionally. Hopefully, this shows in clinical outcomes and the growth of the business. Key Quotes: "The best way to predict the future is to create it" – [Abraham Lincoln] "It is important to step into your greatness" "What fear did I confront today?" "Companies who are diverse in their workforce as well as their senior leadership, outperform other companies who are homogenous" "Be intentional and unafraid to pilot and test things as much as possible" "Know that you were called for this, you may not be perfect, but it's not about perfection, It's about the process" "Many years ago, I intentionally wanted to make sure I left any person I engaged...better than I found them" Connect: Find | Merritt Mckenzie On LinkedIn --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/healthcarequalitycast/message

THE REAL ESTATE SESSIONS PODCAST Episode 295:  Host: BILL RISSER Guest: WENDY POLLACK Episode Summary: Meet today's guest https://www.realliving.com/wendy.pollack (Wendy Pollack), a realtor and a Professional Development Specialist at https://www.realliving.com/cypress-realty (Real Living Cypress Realty) in Fort Myers, Florida. In this episode, I sit with Wendy, who grew up in Long Island, New York, and is currently based in Fort Myers, Lee County, Florida. She talks about her path into Real Estate, exploring to find the right career option for her skillset, with her passion for helping new Real Estate agents. Top Takeaways: "I'm not in it for the money. I'm in it really to see them succeed." - [Wendy Pollack] "The most important thing is your sphere of influence, people who know you, like you, and trust you." - [Wendy Pollack] Episode Highlights: [00:20] Intro [01:00] Meet today's guest, Wendy Pollack. [06:25] What career were you thinking about as a teenager? [14:40] How did you educate yourself so you could help others? [18:06] Why Wendy settled in Fort Myers. [19:30] What one piece of advice would you give a new agent? [21:38] Outro Episode Notes: As a teenager, Wendy had considered going into a fashion-based career while working at a gift store till she went to college at Adelphi University. She had studied nursing for a few months, till she realized it wasn't for her and changed to study Exercise Physiology. After school, she worked in Cardiac rehab and then corporate fitness. Wendy got into Real Estate after she relocated to Florida 27 years ago. She had a few clients in Real Estate and was encouraged to get involved in it. She had enjoyed the experience but took a break at some point to raise her son till he was 13 before getting back into Real Estate again. After returning to work for a while, an opportunity opened up with a position as Professional Development, Recruiting, and Sales Manager. Wendy shares that she loves helping new realtors become successful, which is her job. Bill shares that Nursing is the second most common career that can quickly pivot to and succeed in Real Estate. Seeing her son take up his passion for photography also encouraged her to focus more on learning about her work and getting well educated on it. She had gotten more attracted to Instagram, which she employs as a tool in her work. Other forms of technology besides social media are CRM programs, Drip Campaigns, newsletters, and different kinds of automation. Wendy shares that they settled in Fort Myers to get away from the people in the area where she grew up and get closer to a beach environment with the seaside views and lovely weather. Essential advice to new agents: The most important thing is your sphere of influence, people who know you, like you, and trust you. If you have a good sphere of influence, you will work faster and get ahead quicker. If you don't have that sphere, you have to work hard in your environment. Being proactive and reaching out to people still definitely works.

In this episode, I sit with Florin, a Romanian by birth and American by choice, as he talks about his journey from Romania into real estate in America. He also discusses current trends in technology and the practice of real estate. Top Takeaways: "People should experience other countries, and other cultures, live there for a month or two, and when they come back, they come with a renewed appreciation for what they have." - [Florin Patrascoiu] "Truthfully, the hospitality industry prepares you for anything in real estate." - [Florin Patrascoiu] "You have to be open to learning." - [Florin Patrascoiu] "You know what the best CRM is?...the one you use." - [Florin Patrascoiu] "Trying to force people into something is a losing proposition." - [Bill Risser] "You get more by giving and not expecting anything in return." - [Florin Patrascoiu] Episode Highlights: [00:38] Intro [01:11] Meet today's guest, Florin Patrascoiu. [02:40] How did you end up settling in Florida? [16:25] Florin's path to real estate [21:27] The benefits of Mentorship in Florin's career. [24:50] How would you describe Wesley Chapel?

[36:15] Discussing the current issue of commissions as regards the NAR-DOJ settlement. [39:55] Florin's advice to new agents. [43:08] How to contact Florin. [44:54] Outro Episode Notes: Florin studied in Romania, moving to Florida in 1996 at the age of 24. Although Florin loves America, he shares that Romania is also a beautiful country. It is located in eastern Europe, with a Latin-based language, even though Slavic-based countries surround them. He joined his wife in Florida after she moved to Florida because her family was there, and he loved the place. Florin studied Economics with a major in International Tourism and has a deep passion for Soccer which; he played professionally growing up but stopped due to an Achilles injury. Describing his journey into real estate, Florin explains that he had to work in an Italian restaurant when he immigrated to the U.S. The experience of being a part of the hospitality industry was beneficial to him later in Real Estate. He also worked in corporate business for a while till he finally started with Coldwell Banker. He worked there, grooming himself for close to 7 years; he describes this as his formative years. He also discovered that he has attributes that make him an entrepreneur, a trusted adviser, and a team builder suitable for real estate. However, after he started a company, things got rough as the great recession hit. Florin strongly believes in Mentorship and coaching in his growth. Additionally, since he had faced a lot of ups and downs with the recession, the "dot com" boom and bust, as well as 9-11, he was well-groomed in the early years of his practice in Real Estate. He also got involved in "Short sales." Wesley community is a vibrant, growing, diverse community much different from the way it used to be, with more facilities for daily living or entertainment. Discussing current technology in Real Estate, Florin explains that even with advancements, technology will not replace agents. Still, agents can streamline the process of home buying or selling for clients using technology. Even CRM software is best determined as a good fit by the person using them. Florin highlights that the state of the real estate market is not expected to change anytime soon in the pandemic, noting that rates are...

How to Get Your Customers to Come Back Again and Again  Shep Hyken talks about his new book I'll Be Back: How to Get Customers to Come Back Again and Again. The book comes out on September 21, 2021. Top Takeaways:  ·      Questions like, "Are you happy with our service?" and "Would you be willing to recommend us?" are great history lessons. Another important measure of customer service success is behavior – whether or not customers come back. ·      In the '80s, Jan Carlson came up with the idea of the Moment of Truth. This is when a customer comes into contact with any aspect of the business and has the opportunity to form an impression. Carlson said they could be good or bad. Shep has names for these and added a third one: 1.    Moment of Misery is when the customer encounters a problem or has a complaint. 2.    Moment of Mediocrity is an average experience. 3.    Moment of Magic is a positive Moment of Truth that we need to consistently create. ·      Why would customers terminate you? 1.    Apathy. When you make the customer feel like you just don't care, they're going to find somebody that does. 2.    Rudeness. This creates a negative emotional response within the customer. 3.    You didn't make it easy for the customers to find you. ·      How to create an "I'll Be Back" experience: 1.    Ask, "Why would someone do business with me instead of a competitor?" 2.    Ask your team, "Why would someone do business with the competition instead of me?" 3.    Keep pace. Take a look at what your competition is doing that is different but don't just copy them. Make sure you do something better. 4.    Ask the team, "What companies do we love doing business with and why?". 5.    Take a look at what the best companies are doing that you can implement in your business – and do so. 6.    Go back to question #1 and ask, "Now that we have done all this, why would customers want to do business with us?”  Quotes:  “Customer amazement is within the grasp of everybody in an organization. When you provide consistent and predictable above-average experiences, that is when you are operating in the zone of amazement.”  About:  Shep Hyken is a customer service and experience expert, New York Times bestselling author, award-winning keynote speaker, and your host of Amazing Business Radio.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Resources Mentioned: Episode Summary: Meet today's guest, J. Philip Faranda, the founder and broker of https://www.jphilip.com/ (J. Philip Real Estate) based in Westchester County. In this episode, I sit with Phil, who is based in the suburbs north of Manhattan, and he shares his unique insight on the real estate industry and describes his impactful experience working so far. Top Takeaways: "The hospitality industry is the only industry in my opinion that can make real estate look like a walk in the park." - [J. Philip Faranda] "There's no market you can't break into if you follow best practices." "If the truth can kill it, it needs to die." - [J. Philip Faranda] "Every single one of those 120million leads that are sold to Realtors every year, that's some agent who didn't take care of a customer." - [Bill Risser] "It is clear to me that most Real Estate mistakes… it is downstream from something that was unbrokered or under- brokered." - [J. Philip Faranda] "Everything you do today is a love letter to future you." - [J. Philip Faranda] Episode Highlights: [00:34] Intro [01:16] Introducing our guest, J. Philip Faranda. [03:00] About Phil's background and interests. [17:26] How Phil started in Real Estate. [24:53] About Phil's real estate company, J. Philip Real Estate. [33:35] Discussing Zillow Real Estate marketplace. [46:44] https://beverlycarterfoundation.org/ (The Beverly Carter Foundation). [53:03] Phil's advice to new agents [55:13] How to contact Phil Email- [56:25] Outro Episode Notes: After studying liberal Arts, Phil thought he would go into writing or teaching. Still, he started his first job was selling supplemental programs to Catholic schools, which he did for seven years while resisting opportunities to go into real estate with his friend. Eventually, he was offered an apartment and a monthly draw to work in Real Estate, and he took up a passion for Real Estate. He also shares that it fit his issues with attention, and he enjoyed the versatility in the experience. At some point, Phil also took a year off to work as a Bartender and later worked in mortgages for five years. Doing this, he learned that there wasn't much of a difference between real estate in Westchester and Manhattan, especially if best practices are followed. He took the course and started his company. In describing the inspiration for his real estate company, https://www.jphilip.com/ (J. Philip Real Estate), Phil shares that he had to go by J. Philip to differentiate himself from his father. So, he had to answer to the name J. Philip in school, which later became the name of his company. The brokerage grew and now has close to 100 agents. Phil had picked up blogging to keep himself sane after the market crash in 2008; however, it ended up boosting his brand, growing his following, and helping him recruit more agents as the blog created an impression that the company was more significant than it indeed was. Phil shares that he deeply enjoys blogging and all that comes with it. Phil shares that his company was the first brokerage in his market to syndicate to Zillow marketplace ahead of everyone else. After he sent an email to Spencer Rascoff, former CEO at Zillow, pointing out a need for a change in the strategy of marketing Zillow, he was asked to be on the advisory board. After working there for a few years, there was some misapprehension towards the changes, but he believed it was necessary. Phil believes that Zillow will have to reinvent itself to stay ahead of the curve. Addressing the concern agents have about competing with Zillow, Phil explains that most real estate mistakes come from unbrokered or under-brokered deals based on the poor performance of agents; as such, the focus should be directed at such poor practices.  Talking about his work with the Beverly Carter Foundation, where he served as President, Phil narrates experiences that

This can be done with the 5 Steps to Ridiculously Consistent Growth, which are: o  Step 1. Map where your best customers are today and where they want to go. Creating the customer journey is not about a sales funnel. It is about organizing behavior and helping customers reach their goals. o  Step 2. Uncover the real problem you solve for your ideal customers. Your customers don't want your products, they want solutions to their problems. o  Step 3. Narrow your focus to the top 20 percent of your ideal customers. Identify your ideal clients and ask, "What else can we do for them?" o  Step 4. Attract more ideal customers with the narrative they are already telling themselves. Know where your customers are, where they want to go, and how to get them there by understanding the problems that they want to solve. o  Step 5. Scale with your customers by serving their entire ecosystem.  Quote:     "The trick to getting customers for life is serving and understanding your ideal customers. This allows you to grow and scale with them instead of constantly chasing the next new idea or new customer."  About:    John Jantsch is a marketing consultant, speaker, and author of The Ultimate Marketing Engine.

THE REAL ESTATE SESSIONS PODCAST Episode 292:  Host: BILL RISSER Guest: JERRY VALENTINE Episode Summary: Meet our guest, https://www.linkedin.com/in/jerryv513/ (Jerry Valentine), the founder of the https://rentermentor.net/ (Renter Mentor Organization) and is currently based in Columbus, Ohio. In this episode, I sit with Jerry, born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. He discusses his work in the nonprofit space and the experiences that led him into the affordable housing aspect of Real Estate. Top Takeaways: "A lot of people don't look at photography and videography as technology, but that's really some of our oldest technologies." - [Jerry Valentine] "The arts are the true way of self-expression." - [Jerry Valentine] "There are a lot of growing markets out there where you can be very successful just by opening the door to a home." - [Jerry Valentine] Episode Highlights: [00:24] Intro [01:12] Introducing today's guest, Jerry Valentine. [02:46] What do you love about Ohio? [04:16] What one thing would you change about Ohio? [06:44] Starting university, was a career in the nonprofit world in your mind? [08:43] About the "Get out Network" nonprofit organization. [13:55] Getting into Affordable housing and challenges observed. [19:08] What were the things you were going to solve? [23:24] How do programs like the IOI program help Renter Mentor gain traction? [27:11] What's next for "Renter Mentor"? [30:46] What one piece of advice would you give a new agent? [33:46] How to contact Jerry [35:22] Outro Episode Notes: Jerry founded "Renter Mentor," which helps connect tenants and landlords with affordable housing more straightforwardly. Based in Ohio throughout his life, Jerry shares that he loves Ohio for the big city energy that comes, especially since it comes without the high population. He shares that he would not change much about Ohio given a chance and encourages listeners to look out for his younger brother, defensive back for Kentucky University, number 14. During his first year at Ohio University, Jerry wanted to study communications and become a journalist but was discouraged when his mother shared her doubts about how lucrative that field was. Following his love for physical fitness, he decided to study Physical Therapy for the first three years. He realized he did not want a career in that and went back into communication. About the Get Out Network: Jerry is an innovator and a social entrepreneur who created the Get Out Network Nonprofit organization right after college. The mission of the Get Out Network is to work with underserved and underrepresented K-12 youth and provide STEM art workshops. Summarily, the network serves as an educational supplement. While trying to figure out his interest in college, he started doing videography and photography for organizations on campus, initially for free to build a portfolio but began making money much earlier than expected. When he moved to Colombus, he realized that many people don't have a concise curriculum to expose them to the different opportunities he had. This motivated him to start the group, which has been around for close to 8 years. Jerry shares how he got into affordable housing through an opportunity as a front desk clerk at the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority. Jerry explains that the front desk was a great position since he knew very little about the industry and had the opportunity to work with all other professionals in the field, learning the day-to-day activities involved. He also worked in the "lease and intake" department, gleaning knowledge from the clients, property managers, and landlords. One of the significant affordable housing problems that Jerry identified was the considerable disconnect between tenants and landlords. A typical example of this is when a section 8 voucher is given to a tenant, but they can't find a landlord to accept it.

THE REAL ESTATE SESSIONS PODCAST Episode 291:  Host: BILL RISSER Guest: Dr. BRAD O'CONNOR Episode Summary   Meet our guest in this episode, https://www.linkedin.com/in/brad-o-connor-81824226 (Dr. Brad O'Connor), Chief Economist at the Florida Association of Realtors, currently based in Orlando, Florida. Live at the Florida Realtors Convention 2021 at the REBarCamp in Orlando, I sit with Brad, who grew up in Dayton, Ohio, and he expounds deeply on the real estate and housing markets. He shares his perspective on the economics surrounding the market over the years and how it relates to the pandemic and current trends. Top Takeaways:  "Prices are rising very fast… but you've got to go a little deeper into why that's happening; prices don't always rise for the same reasons." - [Dr. Brad O'Connor] "The best thing you can do is read; read a lot." - [Dr. Brad O'Connor] Don't try to get there overnight; you're not going to - [Dr. Brad O'Connor] Episode Highlights: [00:30] Intro to this live episode [01:24] Meet today's guest "Dr. Brad O'Connor."  [03:20] Did you always plan to become an economist? [07:20] Building the connection with Florida Realtors.  [10:10] What were you thinking would happen as the pandemic started on "March 20th, 2020"? [13:10] Discussing the reasons for the current housing shortage. [16:00] How long before the builders catch up with population growth? [18:10] Comparing the current rise in home prices with a similar occurrence in 2005. [23:56] What do you see in the next five years? [26:32] What advice would you give a new agent? [28:51] How to contact Dr. Brad. [29:49] Outro Episode Notes:  Brad shares he didn't particularly plan to become an economist but had several things he wanted to try out in college, which he did till he finally decided on Economics. After school, he knew he wanted to become an Economics professor. He later moved with his wife to Orlando when she got a job there, after which he got a job opportunity with the Florida Association of Realtors and is now the Chief Economist there.  Before the pandemic hit the U.S, Brad had started to prepare for the possible impact on the economy, and the initial expectation was for prices to remain stable. Fortunately, what was not expected was the speedy recovery of the market, with Florida being at the forefront in the U.S.  The current housing shortage, however, started before the pandemic. This occurred because, at some point, people got the idea that the cost of housing would continue to go up and consequently built a lot more houses than the demand at the time. After the great recession, many building companies were put out of business, while the few that remained have been very conservative in building. Due to the population growth afterward, most of the housing from the previous cycle was absorbed by 2013, and builders have been struggling to keep up with population growth. The pandemic only made the situation worse. The decline in construction due to inadequate building companies, workers, and skilled labor has been a significant factor in this housing shortage; hence the government is now creating incentives and awareness for more people to get involved with this line of business. Another long-term constraint is the inadequate supply of land for building as the population grows.  Brad compares the current rise in housing prices to a similar event in 2005, followed by a massive drop in price. Since 2011, the statewide median sale price of houses has not been down yearly. First, there is an increase in demand for housing because the millennials are more prominent in population size than the previous generation. Secondly, following the pandemic, people now prefer to relocate to other areas because of the flexibility to work from home. So, unlike the previous situation where demand for housing was going up due to business speculation that the price...

In this episode, I sit with Jim, and he shares his journey into Real Estate, up to date working with the http://www.thebayareateam.com (Bay Area Team with Pacific Union - Christie's International Real Estate.) He emphasizes the importance of relationships in Real Estate today and the transition of these relationships into the online space using social media. Top Takeaways:  "When you've done it so long, no matter what it is you're doing… you evolve into a place of unconscious competence." - [Jim Walberg] "We're in the relationship business… it's not about Jim… it's about 'how is it that we can build deep and wide long-lasting relationships, and how is it that those relationships can be served?'" - [Jim Walberg] "Today, I look at the Inman group as part of my professional village and my professional family, so for me, it's like going to a family reunion." - [Jim Walberg] "I may be wrong, but I don't believe it's possible to have a successful Real estate practice without an audience and an audience that you're going to be able to serve." - [Jim Walberg] Episode Highlights: [01:07] Intro [01:22] Meets today's guest, Jim Walberg.  [02:02] Jim reflects on his relationship with Nate Ellis, who passed away following an illness.  [04:36] About Jim's background [07:03] How Jim got started in Real Estate [11:30] About Pacific Union - Christie's International Real Estate.  [13:56] Jim talks about his interest in Caribbean Real Estate.

After this, Jim moved to California State University Long Beach, initially thinking he would become a high school teacher. He, however, moved to San Francisco to join a friend who was starting a company, which he later owned.  On how Jim got into Real Estate, he discusses initially starting as a spec home builder for personal investment, with massive success due to the growth rate in the Bay Area at the time. His first contact with the real estate space was as a client, but he was utterly unimpressed with the overpromising and under-delivery of agents. With no interest in being a realtor, Jim had also turned down an offer to be a partner at a Real Estate company but was convinced to join solely functioning on the management side. The company started with the name United California Brokers. While working there, he saw an opportunity to create an experience for clients better than the disappointing one he endured.

THE REAL ESTATE SESSIONS PODCAST Episode 89:  Host: BILL RISSER Guest: KENDYL YOUNG Episode Summary: Meet today's guest, https://glendalediggs.com/meet-the-team/kendyl-young/ (Kendyl Young), the owner/broker of http://www.glendalediggs.com/ (Diggs), based out of Glendale, California. In this episode, I sit with Kendyl, born and raised in Los Angeles, California, as she shares insights from the history behind her Real Estate brand and discusses major flaws with current general practices in Real Estate. Top Takeaways: "A brand is not a logo; it's not a name, a brand is a promise of what you're going to experience when you do business with that company." - [Kendyl Young] "We work hard, we play hard, enjoy life, and we do some kickass real estate; we're a small office and likely to stay that way, but we need a few good people to come play with us." - [Kendyl Young] "Part of this itch that I need to scratch is my distress over the decades-long trends in our Real Estate industry, of moving towards volume rather than quality." - [Kendyl Young] "I believe that what I, and many thought leaders across the country, are trying to accomplish is figuring out how to raise the standards of everything that touches our brand…. Everything that touches your brand has to be of a certain culture and quality." - [Kendyl Young] "Real estate is easy, it's not rocket science, but the business of real estate is terribly complex." - [Kendyl Young] Episode Highlights: [01:08] Intro [01:30] Introducing our guest today, Kendyl Young. [02:44] What is one misconception people have about California? [05:15] How Kendyl got into Real Estate. [10:18] What are the ways Cobalt Banker helped you grow in Real Estate? [12:45] Starting the "http://www.glendalediggs.com/ (Diggs)" brand and getting her broker's license. [16:27] Describe the process you go through when bringing an agent on board your company. [22:05] The importance of connecting with like minds, like at the Inman events? [25:35] Where did you get the inspiration for the unique http://www.glendalediggs.com/ ("Diggs" website)? [31:01] Kendyl's advice to new agents [33:22] How to contact Kendyl Episode Notes: Kendyl shares that she agrees with the general belief that Los Angeles natives are crazy, especially after visiting the Bay Area. Glendale is at the border between the San Fernando Valley and San Gabriel Valley, which explains why the breeze and weather are much better than in the other two regions. Discussing her entry into real estate, even though now a second-generation Real Estate agent, Kendyl didn't initially expect to go into it. She had laid out plans to fully establish an advertising business which she started in high school with her friend. However, while schooling at UCLA, an irresistible offer from Procter & Gamble closed the advertising chapter. Later on, Kendyl considered that she might not be bad at real estate, especially since her mum was already quite established in the business. This was how she started her career in Real Estate, first with Cobalt Banker Real Estate, which had bought the company she was previously working for. After almost 26 years in Real Estate, Kendyl had no plans to become a broker or get a license until 2012, when she launched the "DIGGS" brand under Dilbeck's Real Estate brokerage license. Her goal was to create a brand that could achieve a level of trust with the local population. After the partnership with Dilbeck, which is a regional family-owned business, did not work out, Kendyl finally decided to get her broker's license. Kendyl shares that the company is growing so well, there are plans to have a second location. Kendyl is intentional about working with people aligned with her goal and vision for her company, which shows in her process of onboarding new agents. Her practice is in stark contrast with the current trend in real estate of volume being...

Highlighting the biggest misconception about Hawaii, Matt explains that people have a general idea that everyone there is lazy. "It's almost impossible to live here without getting influenced by the environment." In Hawaii, this influence is seen in the "work-life" balance, which differs significantly compared to work in the US mainland. This distinction between both places has been responsible for the impression of a laid-back lifestyle often perceived as laziness. Matt notes that this belief does not represent the reality over there. Matt also shares his experience before Real Estate, starting as a manager running a bar and restaurant. After suffering burnout, he took two years traveling around different places, and on returning, noticed people in his industry were getting Real Estate licenses to sell Timeshares. Motivated to do the same, he got his license. Still, he was informed of a job opportunity in a Real Estate company that ultimately steered him into starting his career in Real Estate.   Discussing events around the startup of https://www.hawaiilife.com (Hawaii Life Brokerage) in 2008, during the recession, Matt notes that growth was much faster than anticipated. The challenges of having competitors came with that level of success. The website for Hawaii Life was also uniquely designed by Matt and his team, making the website the first with any real traffic. He explains that it was motivated by the poor and frustrating representation of properties, added to the minimal efficacy of brokerages within the tech space. The company has also engaged in print productions as part of its marketing strategy, and it has been much more beneficial. Matt has partnered up with a luxury group on Oahu that expanded its presence there. The primary use of technology involved in the operation is through Salesforce.  Talking about his work with volunteerism, Matt shares that initially, the purpose was to educate himself on the people and the place, but has now grown to involve more depth with a sense of responsibility to the environment. He is the outgoing President of the Hawaiian Islands Land Trust, a land conservation organization with the largest land trust in the state.

Episode Summary: Meet today's guest, https://www.linkedin.com/in/walkerinteractive (Lauren Walker), Senior Director of Account Strategy at https://www.inman.com/ (Inman), currently based in Durham, North Carolina. In this episode, I sit with Lauren, raised in the western suburbs of Chicago, already with a passion for writing while growing up. She talks about her work as a copywriter and content creator. Top Takeaways:  "Even though an individual agent will join a big organization… they're still a solo operator, and at the end of the day, they're responsible for their own business." - [Lauren Walker] "Real Estate is phenomenally intimate as an industry setting." - [Lauren Walker] "My word for 2018 has been 'Conversations,' and when I talk to people, they need to be talking to people about real estate." - [Bill Risser] "You're not creating, you're documenting, and that takes the pressure off." - [Lauren Walker] "I strongly feel that you shouldn't limit yourself to just influencers in Real Estate; otherwise, you're just going to be a copy of somebody." - [Lauren Walker] Episode Highlights: [00:28] Intro [00:51] Meet today's guest, https://www.linkedin.com/in/walkerinteractive (Lauren Walker). [03:20] Why Lauren chose to settle in Durham, North Carolina.  [05:43] About Lauren's copywriting.  [14:45] Lauren shares her challenges moving into the Real Estate space.  [17:02] Lauren talks about her role at Inman. [19:20] The value of relationships in the world of Real Estate.  [21:10] Is blogging dead? [24:08] Lauren shares some of her favorite content creators.  [28:08] Lauren's advice to new agents. [29:12] How to contact Lauren. Episode Notes:  Lauren's father had initially moved to Durham while she was in New York, and she only went there to pay him visits. Following the events of 9-11, she considered moving out of New York and was surprised at the options available in the beautiful environment of Durham, North Carolina. This encouraged her to leave New York and finally settle in Durham.   As a copywriter, Lauren uses words to get the desired result from people. Since high school, she has always written with hopes to make a living from it. Lauren shares the learning experience at Sarah Lawrence College, New York, where she honed her writing because the courses demand a considerable amount. This helped her secure a job in the marketing department of the "Readers Digest" magazine even before she graduated.  Around the year 2000, Lauren started her marketing and design firm, "Walker Interactive," with her husband, a web designer. Together they designed websites for solopreneurs and famous Olympic athletes. Lauren was also a consultant and contractor for IBM for over 13 years. She also worked with the marketing team on the website.  Lauren talks about her challenges moving into Real Estate, the first of which was having a lot to learn as she adapted to the Real Estate language. This meant more reading, and she also had to talk to people generally to understand their difficulties and needs before discussing real estate with them.  Discussing her role at Inman, she explains it is a unique one that involves helping advertisers and sponsors uncover how they can be most effective at Inman by strategic creativity.  Lauren explains that blogging is not dead, however even with little interest in writing, people still can be encouraged to create content by first identifying their interests using a voice memo app to document as they go through the day and creating content based on those interests. "I find the most underused tool that is on everybody's phone is the voice memo app" The most important thing is the story, and it can be told in different ways, whether it's through writing, videos, or pictures.   Having conversations centered around real estate is pivotal; this is particularly well articulated by sharing events and discussing...

Top Takeaways:  ·        Businesses need to know which customers are most profitable for them and what value they can offer that makes them unique. ·        It is critical for brands to choose the customers that their business model, team, and company DNA engages with the best. This is their biggest profit opportunity. ·        Identify your most profitable customers and ask, "Am I spending most of my time and resources there?" Also, consider the opposite. Ask, "Am I distracted with customers that don't make me a lot of money that I'm neglecting my best customers?" ·        Companies need to decide which subset of customers brings in the most profit and become more customer-centric with them. ·        Not all revenue is good revenue. Not all customers will bring more profit to your bottom line. Have the conviction to walk away from some of the revenue that is actually costing you money and profits. Quote:   "The fastest way to make money is to sell more to the customers who already love you."   About:  John Wass is the CEO of Profit Isle.

Spring Bengtzen started in real estate while she was only 22. A developer refused to hire her at that time because they thought she was too young. However, she was determined to prove herself, so she agreed to work for free for the first couple of months. After learning the trade, she was able to sell her first house just by transacting over the phone. This impressed the developer, and they decided to keep her. She worked her way up to being their principal broker and sold thousands of properties while she was there. But when the economy tanked in ‘08, they filed for bankruptcy. At that time, Spring was listed as one of REALTOR's Magazine 30 under 30, and she had the opportunity to join Keller-Williams. From 2010 to 2019, she built and grew her team to become the largest in Utah. Eventually, Spring felt she was ready for something more. So in 2019, she started her own brokerage under Realty One. While she loved its branding and transaction model, she realized that she's really not meant to be a broker-owner. She had to let go of her ego, sell her brokerage, and ultimately joined REAL Broker LLC.

Episode Summary: Introducing today's guest, https://www.linkedin.com/in/erinn-nobel (Erinn Nobel), the Chief Cultural Officer at Real, a national brokerage founded in 2014. Born in Anchorage, Alaska, she now makes Bellingham, Washington, her home. In this episode, I sit with Erinn as she discusses how she got into real estate and the changing trends in brokerage models that will redefine real estate in the future. Top Takeaways: "Culture is non-negotiable." - [Bill Risser] "We really needed to define our purpose statement and our core values." - [Erinn Nobel] Episode Highlights: [00:32] Intro [01:16] Meet today's guest, https://www.linkedin.com/in/erinn-nobel (Erinn Nobel). [02:11] Erinn shares some of her background. [04:56] What is the biggest misconception about Alaska? [06:15] What were you planning to do before you started Real Estate? [08:40] What encouraged you to join EXP Realty? [15:25] What is Real Brokerage doing to take the idea of Revenue Sharing to the next level? [18:04] What are some of the things you worked on as the Chief Cultural Officer of Real Brokerage? [20:52] The role that Real Brokerage is playing in closing the gender gap in Real Estate. [22:01] Erinn talks about Real Brokerage listed on the NASDAQ. [23:56] Erinn's advice to new agents. [24:30] How to contact Erinn. [25:19] Outro Episode Notes: Erinn is the Chief Cultural Officer at http://www.joinreal.com/ (Real). Real estate was not particularly one of the options Erinn had considered while growing up, even in college. Being the daughter of an architect, she had a passion for quality design and graduated with a degree in Industrial Design. She had worked on space planning and design for offices, but while less busy at some point, she decided to get her real estate license to try to make some money and ended up going entirely into it. Following the demoralizing recession around 2009, Erinn had decided to focus on implementing more tools to serve her clients better. Later on, she decided to research brokerage models and found the model and technology at eXp Realty to be a perfect fit for her. Her husband, who had a Ph.D. in cognitive science, also joined in at eXp. The eXp national brokerage model is unique, with one brokerage in a state but many support staff scattered across the country. The traditional model of the bricks and mortar brokerage is not here to stay, agents are usually on the move, and they need a certain kind of technology to support it. The founder of Real, Tamir Poleg, approached Erinn for insight on his brokerage model, which appealed to her. The brokerage uses both the "capped commission" model and the revenue share model but with an app-based working approach. Based on these new kinds of models, teams will be a dominant force in the industry. As an agent or broker, you can be licensed in one state and operate your team anywhere that the brokerage is open by adding licensed agents in that area under your team name. Erinn's first step as Chief Cultural Officer of Real was to carry out a culture exercise to define the business's purpose statement and core values. The purpose statement is "to build a shared future together." One of the primary core values of the company is "Work Hard, Be Kind." Erinn explains that when bringing new leaders on board, they are first given an orientation on the company's core values. With over five women in leadership positions at the brokerage, it plays a significant role in closing the gender gap in real estate. This would most likely attract more talent from women looking to find a platform to achieve more in their careers. Being listed on the NASDAQ is a considerable step for Real, opening the door to many potential investors. It also brings the reputation that the company is solid and they know what they're doing. Erinn's advice to new agents: Interview as many brokerages as you can. You're going to need...

Top Takeaways: ·        Many companies think that they are customer-obsessed while unaware of the customer-focused gaps within their organization. These gaps can be felt by the customers through their digital channels, interactions with people, and a variety of things in their organization. ·        Gaps in being a customer-obsessed organization happen when companies do not deliver their brand promise. ·        The brand promise falls into three categories: 1. ‘Unlike the others' - Being different, quirky, or unusual. 2. ‘At your service' - Differentiating the experience through amazing customer service. 3. ‘On your side, by your side' - Being the customer's advocate. ·        A customer-obsessed organization listens to their clients and takes actions based on the information that they receive. ·        In 2017, it would have taken 17 interactions with a brand to close a typical B2B transaction. Now, it takes 27 with 4 or more people involved before customers can make a buying decision. ·        Throughout the pandemic, the racial tensions that we are in, and the environmental issues that we are facing, customers are taking a closer look at the brands that they want to trust and do business with. ·        What happens inside an organization is felt on the outside by the customers. ·        Many companies underestimate the importance of how employees feel about how service is delivered to their customers. ·        Alignment in business is knowing who your customer is, how you want them to feel, and shaping your product around customer obsession. ·        Aligned organizations have 19% faster growth and 15% higher profitability.

In this episode, I sit with Kristina as she talks about life in Baton Rouge and the great features there to know about. She has also supported RateMyAgent in the area as she works to help real estate agents get client reviews.

[30:51] Kristina's advice to new agents  [32:00] How to contact Kristina [34:15] Outro Episode Notes:  Kristina shares the inspirational story behind Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers restaurant. It was an idea that was initially dismissed and expected to fail. The founder still executed the idea. He eventually created a store in Baton Rouge and franchised to other states. She draws motivation from this story when faced with heavy odds in any situation. About Baton Rouge: Baton Rouge is the State Capitol, not New Orleans. It is also the only state that has parishes rather than counties. Near Baton Rouge is Gonzalez, Louisiana, the "Jambalaya Capital of the World." Kristina explains that Baton Rouge is far enough from the coast. It typically doesn't usually sustain damage from hurricanes and is often a haven for people in other areas who hurricanes have hit. There is also a blog that offers advice on when the hurricane season starts and how to go about daily life, particularly always buying extra during the hurricane season, to avoid panic buying if the need arises.   Kristina did not attend LSU right out of high school but was in Real Estate working as a receptionist and secretary till she moved on to accounting and left Real Estate for a while. While buying a house after she got married, the agent noticed her organizational skills and asked her to help with organizing things in a Real Estate company, following which she got her license.  After running the company for a while, she decided to go on her own as an individual agent; then, Hurricane Katrina hit and created many business opportunities as people were buying up more properties in Baton Rouge. Kristina started blogging and found out about IDX feeds and joined Keller Williams to have her IDX feed, but after working for a few years, starting her brokerage sounded right. With much support from colleagues and friends, she went ahead to start Town & Parish Realty.  The main goal of https://townandparish.com (Kristina's website) is to focus on Real Estate and attract people organically by offering concise knowledge about the area to help them understand the lifestyle and identify the main appealing features to look out for in Baton Rouge.  Kristina's tips for agents who want to start their company: Don't reinvent the wheel. Use your resources. Look out for things that are missing in Real Estate and address them. Ask questions and ask for help from...

THE REAL ESTATE SESSIONS PODCAST Episode 286:  Host: BILL RISSER Guest: WENDY THACHER Episode Summary: Meet today's Guest, "https://www.linkedin.com/in/wendythacher (Wendy Thacher)," a business development manager with Chicago Title in Portland, Oregon. She is also one of Bill's top referral partners providing great guests on this podcast. In this episode, I sit with Wendy, born and raised in Iowa, as she talks about Portland, where she is presently based, and its appealing features, career path, and Real Estate tips. Top Takeaways:  "It's important to do your homework and lead with value." - [Wendy Thacher] "If I don't ask enough questions or enough of the right questions, we're going to end up with a marketing strategy that isn't sustainable... that doesn't speak what the client is trying to convey." - [Wendy Thacher] "The overall goal is to have marketing strategies that are sustainable, feel good, and reflect who the agent is and the services they offer." - [Wendy Thacher] Episode Highlights: [00:34] Intro [01:36] Wendy shares her background and how she met Bill. [05:38] What is the biggest misconception about Iowa? [08:51] What brought you out of Iowa to the Pacific Northwest (Portland, Oregon)? [10:11] What are three activities you recommend for visitors to Portland? [12:54] What led you to work for Chicago Title? [16:24] What are some of the challenges you have faced as a service marketer? [18:20] What would you recommend for people who also want to lead with value when interacting with clients? [21:27] About Stephanie Chumbley. [26:11] If you had one piece of advice you could give a new agent just getting started, what would it be? [28:18] How to contact Wendy [29:28] Outro Episode Notes:  Wendy shares the humorous event around how she met Bill at a conference in 2013 and built a great working relationship since then.  As an active kid growing up, Wendy enjoyed the field of over 80 hectares of farmland in Iowa. Highlighting misconceptions about Iowa that it is Ohio or Idaho, Wendy shares that Iowa is known for corn and not potatoes. Also, there is the widespread belief that Iowa is generally flat, which is not the case.  During her schooling at the Iowa State University, Wendy had spent a semester at the University of Oregon while partaking in a National Student Exchange Program and fell in love with the state. Upon completing her degree at Iowa, she moved to Oregon.  Three key activities for visitors in Portland: First is tourism, which is too notable to pass up. Next is exploring the food scene, including restaurants and food carts or trucks, which are usually the starting point of the most well-known restaurants in Portland; an example would be a donut tour. The third is appreciating the proximity to other natural beautiful sites like the coast, mountains, and a country, all in different directions surrounding Portland, which gives ideas for various trips.  Following her response to a job advert for a Marketing assistant in a Real Estate company with a branch in Portland, Wendy worked on teaching Realtors how to use their tools and create their websites; this became her passion and formed the foundation for what she does now. She then moved to Transnation Title, which closed down later on, after which she got a job with Chicago Title. Bill recommends the "https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=UtZjhmjKpEI (Business Wars Podcast; Starbucks vs. Dunkin episode)" for listeners who are also coffee lovers like Wendy.  Wendy explains the challenges of being a Service Marketer. Two types of relationships are built; the first is between herself and the client, and the second is the relationship she facilitates between the client and the escrow officer who helps close the deal. Another challenge is that most potential clients already have a Title company or even a favorite escrow officer, so she intentionally always leads with value to get...

Top Takeaways: ·        A customer gives us the gift of trust when they choose us. We must return that trust with integrity, passion, relentless effort, and a sound process. ·        Society has allowed companies to give customers mediocrity. Returning to do business with companies that do not provide great customer service sets the tone that it is okay to do less. ·        With so much competition out there, every business cannot afford to provide a bad customer experience. ·        You can't provide a repeatable and sustainable experience without creating process and training around it.   ·        Trust is the outcome of doing the next right thing. Do the right thing often enough and in a sustainable way that it becomes predictable for your customers. ·        Companies need to get in touch with how their customers want to communicate with them whether it is via phone, email, chat, social media, or other mediums. ·        Omnichannel communication is having all the channels that a customer can connect with your brand in a centralized dashboard. Quote: "Most companies claim that they have good customer service but the true defining measure of making the customer feel valued is behavior."  About: Steve Bederman is the President and CEO of NobelBiz, a Contact Center Technology Company that offers state-of-the-art solutions for companies that want to keep their clients happy.
