? Here's a picture for you - a baseball game where one team has the typical
nine players, the other team - just one, and he's pitching. The batter wallops
one to the wall. The pitcher becomes the right fielder and scurries out to grab
the ball and then sprints to home plate in hopes of tagging out the runner - who
crossed the plate about a minute earlier. Sounds ridiculous doesn't it? And yet,
many REALTORS? do the exact same thing every day. They want to win the game of
real estate by doing it all. Can't be done. A team is essential, especially when
you consider this fact: REALTORS only perform four dollar-producing tasks: list,
prospect, sell and negotiate. The rest are non-dollar producing activities - in
other words, chasing baseballs around a huge outfield. Every time you choose to
do a task beyond those four items, you're squandering valuable time -- time that
could be spent scoring runs for your real estate business. Now Wholesale Jerseys Free
, the big question: how do you build and manage a winning
team? Revisit that list of four tasks. Notice hiring isn't one of them. I'm a
big proponent of outsourcing the hiring function for two key reasons: 1) It's
too important a job to be done incorrectly. I say there's no such thing as a bad
employee - only a bad hire. Inevitably you'll hear someone call an employee
horrible. But you have to look at who hired the person - that's where the real
responsibility lies. 2) Objectivity. Too often hiring decisions are made from
emotion alone without an objective look at the facts. I believe a third-party
perspective is healthy, and of course, it saves you from entering the non-dollar
productive work zone. There are plenty of options available: a temp agency, a
recruiter or a coaching company like mine can help. Nevertheless, if you choose
to go it alone, here are some valuable tips that you should consider when
building a team: Scan Your Plan Ask yourself a couple of important questions:
When you entered real estate, did you just jump in the river and let the current
take you where it was going? Or, did you set a direction and start paddling?
I've seen far too many REALTORS do the former. Then one day they realize -
before they even know what's going on - the river has taken them to the edge of
an ugly and steep waterfall. Suddenly, they're overwhelmed and they have to hire
out of desperation - they rush to hire without thinking what or who they really
need. Another common pitfall is that REALTORS often believe that because they're
good at selling they're good at reading people and can therefore choose the
right person for a job. And one more frequent mistake I see is REALTORS hiring
from their sphere of influence - someone recommends a friend. I've heard it many
times: 'Well, if my friend recommends him, he must be great.' Or I hear this
one: 'She's connected and knows everybody in town.' The only problem is, she
couldn't sell water in a desert. Add all of this to being rushed and you have a
recipe for disaster. (I'll give you an example in a minute.) You can combat all
these problems by following a plan - that's where everything starts. If you feel
the need to hire more staff or build a team, you have to go back to your
business plan and ask what's happening in the marketplace that's causing the
need for more employees and adjust your plan accordingly. It's fine to change
your plan (it's a living document) Wholesale Jerseys From
, but just keep in mind what you need to do to compete more
effectively in the marketplace, and include that information in your business
plan. The plan is your map, it tells you where you're headed and how to get
there. Without it, you're adrift in a raging and unforgiving river. Personally,
I think the most vital person in the real estate industry is the assistant for
two reasons: 1. He or she adds balance in the office and your life. 2. He or she
frees up your time so you can spend more time in front of customers. 'DISC'O
Revival As a consultant (and a former head hunter) who helps real estate
companies hire staff members, I know hiring is a tough job that absolutely
requires objectivity - the consequences of a bad hire are far too serious to
rely on instinct and gut feelings. A tool I've found to be extraordinarily
useful is the DISC profile system. DISC is an acronym for the following four
personality types: Director - The 'boss type' who wants to make money, save time
and be efficient. When you deal with a Director, you need to be to the point and
know how what you're proposing impacts the bottom line. InteractSocializer -
These are the folks who like to have fun, talk about themselves, share jokes and
avoid details. They can also make great first impressions. Explain the fun part
of a project and you'll get the InteractSocializer's attention. Supporter - A
Supporter wants security, safety and sense of belonging. They put a lot of
emphasis on relationships with others, so when you're dealing with Supporters,
ask for their opinions and feelings. Thinker - The Thinker wants
practicality Wholesale Jerseys ,
logic, fairness and a systematic approach. Give these folks facts, documentation
and some extra time to make decisions. Understanding each type helps you be a
better communicator not only with employees, but also clients as a salesperson.
And all four types can add tremendous value to a team whose job it is to sell
real estate. The key for you is to look at your specific needs and build a team
that makes sense for your situation. But no matter which type, D, I, S or C, you
choose to hire, remember, you're building a team. A team is not a group of
