An open letter to real estate agent zombies

The quest to escape the undead
  • Certain methods of prospecting can seemingly kill one's soul and create a zombie-like agent.
  • Most networking groups focus on handing out business cards and giving elevator speeches. Start your own group, and focus on deeper discussion and ideas.
  • Launching a podcast is a great way to create local business relationships.

When I think about real estate, the industry as a whole, there’s a painful parallel.
