Three Things You'll Learn From Justin Havre
The importance of putting family first
A lot of people get into the business with the mindset that they can earn a lot of money, and they get addicted to what they’re getting, which often means sidelining their spouses/partners and families. You should always put those people first. They are your most important “appointments” and they should feel like part of your team.
The right mindset you should have about your job
You have to shift your mindset from being in the business for the money and the success, to being in it for the experiences it afford you and your family. Your career shouldn’t define your happiness. It’s a vehicle for experiences, and that’s what should motivate you.
How to anticipate the technology and big money coming into the industry
Even with all the technology and big money coming into the industry, there is always going to be a human element to real estate transactions. You have to embrace some of the technology to leverage productivity and be more efficient. Technology won’t change too much about what you actually do to serve your clients.
Team culture starts with the people we choose to work with. If we get that right, it’s something that will police itself and reveal the wrong people. The work we need to do first is in our selection.We also have to make sure we get into the habit of putting our families first from the beginning, so that our personal lives don’t fall apart as we become more successful.
Ultimately, if we put the right pieces into place and prioritize our own growth and personal development, we can weather any shifts in the market.
