RISMEDIA, July 12, 2007—While the Florida market can be considered for the most part in the doldrums and some new agents are struggling to stay in the business, one new agent went from new to spectacular in nine weeks.
Chris Romo, a 24-year-old former salaried marketing assistant, helping to raise two young children, joined a commission-only real estate position. To be able to thrive, the only option for Romo would be to earn a living, and quickly. And, that is just what he did as an underdog being a new resident to the area.
To do this, Romo, an agent for Watson Realty Corp., decided to participate in Watson Realty’s sponsored Leader’s Choice© program. While the registration investment was a stretch for a new agent, Chris knew that if his company was behind the program, he should be as well.
He joined the class, in hopes of accelerating his career, after only a few months in the business. By the end of the nine week program, he had successfully booked 73 transactions (22 sales and 51 listings).
For some agents, that production represents many years of continuous work. By combining door knocking, FSBOs, expireds and listening to educational CDs, Romo used everything taught in Leader’s Choice and quickly honed and polished his skills to what he deems as perfection
Rookie-of-the-Year and well on his way to the top 5% in the country, Romo would be the first one to say that anyone with the drive, willingness to work diligently and the smarts to take a top-notch training program can and will achieve what he has achieved.
Romo felt so empowered by the course and his ability to help others, that he decided to become a trainer-in-training with Leader’s Choice. While the journey from trainer-in-training to full-fledged trainer is typically a lengthy process, if anyone will shorten it, Romo feels he will. He believes that challenges are the greatest motivators to his success.
