RISMEDIA, Jan. 3, 2007-As 2007 dawns bright and hopeful for many who are eager to say goodbye to the challenges and market fluctuations in 2006, industry leaders and experts look back thoughtfully on the real estate industry in 2006 and offer their opinions on lessons learned and important events that shaped the year. Oftentimes these opinions take the form of "Top 10 Best" lists; such as the top technology occurrences, top real estate teams and agents, or top best characteristics present in an agent.
Bill Shue, President of iSucceed.com and host of weekly 30-minute Tele-Seminar interviews with top agents across the nation, turns that notion on its head this week when he presents the topic: "Career Killers: Top 10 Things Agents Do to Wreck Their Careers." Interviewed by iSucceed's Content Manager Kelly Kelley, Shue reveals what he's observed in this year-end special edition wrap-up of their weekly iSucceed Tele-Seminar.
Kelley opens the interview by inquiring as to why Shue chose to go with what might be perceived as a harsh commentary on agents today. Shue answers, "I'm not really trying to scare the agents, it's more that I've got a lot of observations I want to share, and I think agents, myself, people in general, we all should learn from our mistakes, and the only way you can learn from mistakes is if someone points them out, and I think that's the purpose of this call today. Here are the mistakes that I'm observing in the marketplace; we know there's going to be a shakeout, and I think those who are part of the iSucceed family will learn from some of the things I've observed and hopefully will take them to heart and go forward into 2007 with a positive attitude."
Mirroring the classic ‘Top 10' style, Shue starts at Mistake #10 and works his way up to the top #1 most damaging mistake he sees agents making in the market. According to Shue, the results are surprising, and sobering.
Shue addresses agents and brokers alike in the list, as he reflects on a myriad of actions taken or not taken, misconceptions, and in some instances simple tasks that, when one fails to perform them, are easily costing hundreds or thousands of dollars in lost commissions every month. Shue follows each revelation with practical advice on how real estate professionals can avoid or fix each and every mistake, and ensure their profitability in 2007.
This week's RISMedia/iSucceed Business Training & Development Call covers the top 10 Mistakes industry insider Bill Shue sees agents and brokers making daily, and offers concise solutions on how to prevent and avoid making them in the months and years to come.
