According to the company, since American Home Mortgage began to sponsor the TAG Seminar series in 2006, more than 6,000 real estate agents have attended TAG seminars in California (2), Nevada, Florida, Washington and Washington D.C. and learned invaluable appointment-setting strategies to increase sales.
Ferry will appear at all American Home Mortgage-sponsored TAG seminars throughout 2007. He has earned a reputation across North America as a top trainer, motivator and personal coach for professionals in the real estate and financial services industries. Ferry has conducted trainings for more than 130,000 sales people nationwide, and has personally coached 16 of the top 100 agents in the entire country, including the No. 1 Century 21, Prudential and Coldwell Banker agents.
While many of Ferry’s clients earn more than $1 million per year in sales income, his extraordinary track record crosses all financial levels of agents and brokers. Numerous real estate professionals point to Ferry as the catalyst for their achieving new records of productivity.
During the free American Home Mortgage-sponsored TAG seminars, Ferry coaches agents on breakthrough appointment-setting strategies, tactics, techniques and role-playing. At the conclusion of each half-day session, many agents, eager to test their new skills, immediately begin setting appointments and return the next day to share their success stories with Mr. Ferry and their peers. In turn, their testimonials — and more important their results — encourage other agents to test their new appointment-setting knowledge.
Thomas Fiddler, executive vice president, of American Home Mortgage commented, “American Home is pleased to offer this valuable educational resource for our real estate agent partners. In this very competitive market, we believe success more than ever hinges on aggressive sales and marketing techniques. TAG Seminars provide resources that help real estate agents quickly drive more sales.”
In advance of many of the American Home Mortgage sponsored three-day TAG seminars, the Company hosts free half-day proprietary Success seminars featuring Tom Ferry. At these seminars, Ferry covers dozens of fool-proof lead generation strategies that are effective in a changing market. In addition, he shares his skill-building techniques and sales scripts while driving home the importance of accountability in measuring success. During these seminars, Ferry will challenge audience members to measure the outcome of their current habits and behaviors, and by extension, eliminate the ones that are no longer effective while retaining and adding more of the ones that are succeeding.
Fiddler continued, “With all the new challenges facing real estate agents today, it will be important for them to partner with lenders who are interested in their long-term success and committed to offering educational opportunities that provide the needed skills, tools and resources for them to be successful.”
