Three Things You'll Learn From Jimmy Rex
How to be an effective agent even as you are away from the office (12:35 - 13:58)
They say the average buyer takes 34 hours, but that’s not true if you do it the right way. For Jimmy, the average buyer was taking 2 hours. You don’t have to see the house to list it, and you can take a listing over the phone. With the right systems and expertise, you can be effective agent even while working remotely.
Why traveling can boost your business and help you to be laser focused (27:07 - 29:21)
There are great opportunities that can come from traveling with groups of people and being part of their network. Jimmy isn’t just out playing— he’s making meaningful connections. You can build relationships this way that will strengthen your database and create a pipeline of business.
How to be valuable to other successful people and stand out to them (31:06 - 34:20)
Successful people are dying for relationships with people who aren’t trying to anything out of them. Learn to add value to their lives, connect them with people they want to be around, give them answers to the questions they have, and be a resource.
In The E-Myth, entrepreneurs are challenged to ask themselves how they would run their business if they were gone for an extended period of time. Jimmy spent 120 days traveling in 2018, and his business still managed to function and thrive. Most agents will never implement this because they can’t move past the idea that can serve clients without having to meet them physically. By doing things he wants to do, hanging out with his network, and having awesome experiences, he has built a successful real estate business. It’s the life so many of us talk about but very few of us get there. If we trust our people, build the right systems and give value, we can achieve it.
