In the interest of full disclosure, I am a real estate broker and I am very successful. I am not a Keller Williams agent and never have been. With that little tidbit out of the way, let me say that I think this book is great to give experienced and succesful real estate agents a skeleton of what a real estate business should look like. The only problem that I see is that this book will not tell you HOW to generate the business to become a "millionaire real estate agent". It merely tells you how to leverage your highly successful real estate practice into the next level, creating a team and making your personal real estate business function like a real business. While I think that this book is helpful and very truthful, I can't help but think that most agents that pick this book up are newer and want to know HOW to get business instead of advice on hiring multiple buyer agents and becoming a CEO of your own personal real estate business. The book talks quite a bit about creating a real estate business that nets a million dollars. Great. Sign me up. The book merely tells you that you need to sell 300+ homes a year. Gee, I could have done that math. This book does very little in the way of talking about how the mega agents that are mentioned and quoted in the book market themselves or their services. The bottom line is this; if you are a successful real estate agent and want to take your business to the next level read or listen to this book 5 times and follow its advice. If you are new and want to start creating business, skip this book until you are able to generate enough business to keep yourself busy. This book won't tell you how to be successful finding and marketing to clients, only how to organize yourself when you are ready to advance beyond being a solo practioner real estate agent to a "team leader".
As a Realtor for almost 2 decades, I basically had to learn on my own, and through the school of hard knocks and trial and error. I have always been successful, and withing my 1st year in the real estate business, I was one of the first realtors in my state to develope a team approach to Real Estate. Since then, I have fought with every Broker I worked for over the Team Approach to the business. Brokers simply did not understand teams, and consequencly they put obsticles in our way. Certainly there was no support or mentoring on how to work more effectively as a team, rather all we learned was trough trial and error.
It is so refreshing to read about how to build and develope a team, and from the mouth of a Broker! WOW what a suprise, and music to my ears...
Imagine that a Broker who actually understands, supports, and encourages Teams. Keller Williams is on to something, and I predict they will establish a new yardstick by which all the rest in the real estate business may be judged.
My team and I are employing many of the things we have discovered in the pages of the Millionaire Real Estate Agents, and I am sure it will make our business skyrocket beyond our wildest expectations.
I just wish I had the opportunity to read this book years ago!
Thanks a MILLION!
Kyle Hebert is the WORST speaker on the planet. He reads EVERY sentence with the MOST annoying emphasis possible. It sounds like a used car commercial. It is IMPOSSIBLE to just sit back and listen because his emphasis AND inflection. This guy ruined the ENTIRE audio book. Don't bother. Just get the actual book and read it.
Nothing with Kyle Herbert narrating, that's for sure.
How about Gary Keller, the author.
Read the book yourself. Skip the audiobook.
I've been in real estate for 2 years, and I learned a tremendous amount to help me move forward and improve myself and in the process my business.
I have read many Real Estate Book, but this book is amazing. If you follow the structure and layout that is explained by the author will be successful. The plan is very real and achievable. I really liked the book and recommending it to all Real Estate Professionals to read it.
I thought I had a business until my son was born and had to have open heart surgery. As soon as I was taken out of my business I realized I had nothing more than a glorified job with a 1099, no Health Insurance, 401K or paid time off. It was then I realized I had to do things differently. As I started to assemble my team I was courting a KW agent. Through this process I realized MREA had the road map I was looking for and left RE/MAX and joined Keller Williams. In 12 short months I went from being a single agent to achieving the 7th level. Read on and you'll know what I'm talking about. I dare you to have a business and not just a J.O.B.
Really great book for RE brokers, it makes the point that if you apply yourself and hold yourself responsible you can succeed in the the business of RE sales, Aim High.
I greatly enjoyed The Millionaire Real Estate Agent. This book re-energized me about the industry and provided great information.
You can't fault the authors' passion and enthusiasm for the industry and they clearly revel in sharing their ideas. However, the industry has changed since most of its material was compiled in the 90's. There is no mention of anything that really challenges the real estate professional in today's market beyond basic business practices. It's a "what you should do" book and not a "how to to do it" book. I did enjoy the real-life stories at the end but again they're from around 2002 and I'd like to hear how they're surviving today. This book inspired me but didn't help me beyond keeping my dream of achieving greater success.
