Ask The Expert – Ivan Oberon – Leveraging Private Money for Your Real Estate Business

Thinking About Taking Your Real Estate Business to the Next Level? START, don’t wait.

In this episode of Ask The Expert, Ivan Oberon joins us to discuss different ways entrepreneurs and the success-minded can become better leaders in their business, personal and financial lives, so that they can continually increase their own value – all without letting funding become a chokepoint.  In addition to offering personal anecdotes and tips for staying motivated, Ivan and Chad also discuss some of their favorite resources for self-motivating success and accountability.

 

 

Why You Shouldn’t Let Financial Fears Block You from Success:

Real estate professionals have plenty of hats to choose from – and there is certainly opportunity to find success and create wealth with any of these hats.

However, many real estate professionals feel stuck wearing the same hat they’ve been wearing, believing they “cannot” invest and grow their wealth and financial security because they feel unsure and uneasy about one of two things:

  1. They have not saved up what they think would be the required amount of money to start down a new path, or
  2. They don’t know how or where to invest the funds they do have.
There are plenty of alternatives to waiting until you can do it on your own (or giving up entirely):
You don’t have to have liquid capital if you know your credit options.
You don’t have to go in blind and leave high yields up to luck.
You don’t have to be a landlord to secure your money to real estate.
You don’t need to wait for an opportunity to find you.
The biggest advantage is doing at all, because 99% of people are comfortable wearing the same hat forever.
Research, reach out, ask questions, touch base with lost contacts, and continue to grow your network with like-minded professionals.  The Fortune is in the follow-up!

Ask The Expert – Hiring a Real Estate Virtual Assistant to Help Grow Your Business

Ask The Expert – Hiring a Real Estate Virtual Assistant to Help Grow Your Business

Thinking About Hiring a Virtual Assistant to Help Get More Leads, Listings, and Closings in Your Real Estate Business?

In this episode of Ask The Expert, Daniel Ramsey from MyOutDesk joins us to discuss WHY and HOW you should hire a virtual assistant if you are out of time and bandwidth in your real estate business.  From lead generation, marketing assistance, handling follow-ups and appointment setting calls, to assisting with different tasks throughout the transaction through to closing, Virtual Assistants are a valuable tool for effective time management.

Considering hiring a VA? Get your questions answered for you.

Request info about MyOutDesk Virtual Assistants and you’ll get 20+ free growth & strategy guides, a Market Force® Personality Indicator, Real Estate Checklists & Hiring Guides all absolutely free!

Why You Should Hire a Virtual Assistant as your Real Estate ISA:

Especially when it comes to working probate leads or leads in other specialized niches, your prospects and clients might require some extra nurturing. Your VA can help handle vendor referrals and client follow-ups to keep you focused on what makes most sense for your dollar.

But something our clients frequently express is how difficult it can be to hire and train a Virtual Assistant that is knowledgeable in real estate and can get results.  You might be hiring someone who lives far away, who will be working remotely, and who you’ve never built rapport with yet. How can you trust their skill set and expertise will bring growth to your business?

While nobody can exactly replicate YOU, consider the tasks and to-do list items you have that all the time management in the world can’t help you complete the way you want them to be completed.  If your business is to grow, it’s necessary to take a look at the non-revenue tasks in your business and assign them to someone who can get them done efficiently.  At the end of the day, the goal is to work ON your business.

We know all too well that even the best organization skills and CRMs can’t help ONE PERSON stay on top of every single lead and client who needs nurturing and attention.  A Virtual Assistant can keep your pipeline happy and growing as your right-hand Real Estate ISA while you can spend your time where it makes the most sense.

Make sure you check out our Ask The Expert video above where Daniel Ramsey breaks down all the ins-and-outs of hiring a Real Estate Virtual Assistant.

About the Expert – Daniel Ramsey (CEO, MyOutDesk)

Daniel Ramsey - CEO of MyOutDesk - Hire A Virtual Assistant For Your Business

Daniel Ramsey – MyOutDesk CEO

Daniel Ramsey has been in the industry since 2001, running a Real Estate and Development company. After several years of great success, Daniel realized that realtors spent too much time working on tasks that are necessary but highly administrative, routine, and time-consuming—working overtime soon becomes required to finish all these tasks and keep in touch with clients and generate new business. Daniel saw a need that he could fill after his experience with his very own Virtual Professional. He realized that these tasks could be delegated by leveraging a Virtual Professional to take care of them, enabling real estate agents and brokers more time and focus on growing their business.

In 2008 MyOutDesk was born, offering services from high caliber talent to Real Estate Agents who needed them the most. MyOutDesk Virtual Professionals have been part of over 5000 client’s teams around the USA and Canada. Daniel has two lovely daughters and a wonderful wife and is passionate about extending the movement beyond revenue, making an actual difference in many people’s lives.

LeadFollow Digital Marketing Update – Jan. 2019

January has been an exciting month at All The Leads.  We have spent a considerable amount of time finishing our new LeadFollow Digital Marketing offering.  LeadFollow is taking a shape that even we didn’t see just 60 days ago so I wanted to bring everyone up to speed.  This is a long-form video with Ben & Chad talking about what has been done, what has been improved and what is still to come as LeadFollow is developed to it’s full potential.

This is a very detailed video with A LOT to digest, but we are getting so many questions about the program that we decided to make a video that explains the “What, Why & How” of LeadFollow so you can get your questions answered right here and then jump over to the LeadFollow page to see the specifics and to place your first order.

 

 

What to Expect from All The Leads in 2019

Hey guys!  We’re excited about the year ahead of us.  As you know we provide probate leads for real estate agents, real estate investors and other professionals.  In addition to leads we provide probate training, probate websites, direct mail and call center services and we most recently announced our rapidly-evolving digital marketing service, LeadFollow.

We are running hard to get new products and services out to you this year.  Many of these things are technologically advanced and less-than-easy to fully understand so I wanted to share a video with you that will help you understand what we accomplished in late 2018 and what to expect in early 2019.  You will also see other, more specific, video updates (e.g. On the LeadFollow page Q&A) that help you better understand specific products and services.

Enjoy!

 

To learn more about LeadFollow go here.  As Probate Plus becomes available you will get updates via email and you will hear lots of talk about it on our Mastermind Calls.

Are You An Ambulance Chaser?

ambulance-chaser2

One of the most common concerns we hear from new subscribers to the probate leads offered by All The Leads is the fear that people they contact will accuse them of being ambulance chasers, hearse chasers or worse. Does that really happen? In truth, it’s pretty rare, but even when it does, a proper approach on the phone call can usually turn negative emotions into genuine appreciation. It’s all a matter of understanding what they need.

Benjamin Franklin once said, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Despite that, many Americans dread April 15th and fail to plan for it until it’s too late and unfortunately, even less of us plan effectively for what happens after our time on earth is up. Sometimes a will has been created and an executor or executrix has been named before someone passes away, but that’s usually about the extent of any planning. Most often, that personal representative is saddled with decisions they must make alone that are quite hard to make without direct advice from the person who has passed on.

All too often, other family members have strong opinions about what needs to be done with the estate and in most cases, where real estate is involved, the person who died also left a home filled with a lifetime accumulation of possessions – many with strong sentimental value.

There’s also the pressure of time. Usually the person who’s been appointed as the personal representative was seen by the deceased as the one with the best ability to make decisions and typically, that person is working a full-time job. Having the time to deal with the many challenges of probate is often a very critical problem and almost every newly minted personal representative usually takes on that responsibility with absolutely no experience whatsoever and precious little available time to devote to the task.

They are constantly aware of the ticking clock and the stressful pressure to get the estate settled quickly and get the monkey off their back. Sometimes that clock is actually a timer, meaning that the estate has to be settled by a certain date to provide funds for something specific like medical care, housing for a surviving spouse or other family member, or a myriad of other time-sensitive deadlines.

Last, but certainly not least, in addition to the newly shouldered responsibility of being a personal representative, they may also be deeply mourning the death of the person who just appointed them as the most important person on earth to their remaining interests.

That’s certainly not a great way to begin each day, but every personal representative wakes up with this stress and added pressure every morning.

Then, guess what? Their phone rings and who’s calling? … IT’S YOU!
