REAL Talk: What's The Next Level

 

A few weeks ago, there was an email from my friend Bridget "Mortgage Mama" McGee inviting me to an event at GBBR in Timonium. Knowing I wanted to see Bridget, I put the date on my calendar. 

 

GBBR

 

 

My week is full of back to back appointments and it was tempting to cancel today.

So glad I didn't because it was a delight sitting with my friend Bridget.

Our speaker was 

Tony Thomas and

I really enjoyed the afternoon hearing how a team works as Tony shared his experiences of going from a mediocre agent to a top producing team. When working with buyers, you have to know who is an A, B or C.  Only work with your 'A' buyers...someone who is ready to buy in the next 30-45 days. 

Another part of Tony's presentation was the importance

of knowing what level you are on and what level you're going to.

 

Tony also discussed  

Top 7 Systems...

1-time blocking

2-database

3-prospecting

4-lead follow up

5-contract to close

6-listing

7- buyer

 

Here is Tony's definition of a database.

I met some new agents, sent an AR invitation to Tiaira Satchell and found out

The Thomas Group serves South Central Pennsylvania, Central Maryland, York, Baltimore and everything in between.

If you get the chance to hear Tony speak...jump at it.

Some times you must just make the time.  May times they are the best times.

Dear Margaret,

Sounds like a great presentation. Thank you for the summary for those of us, who could not make it.

Hi Margaret,
When I've been tempted to cancel a committment, I'm almost always glad I didn't. Nice shout out for Tony Thomas.

Carol Williams  I agree. Low expectations can give pleasant surprises. Tony was a good speaker. I am still thinking of some of his points.
