Here’s a quick glance at the five listing agent tips shared by Williams — tips that helped him list over 1,000 houses in 10 years.

5 listing agent tips to list 1,000 homes

Tip 1: Mindset

This is the most critical key. Ask yourself, “What do I want, and why do I want it?” And remember, you can’t fool your mind.

So, you need to believe what you are saying if you are going achieve your goals of listing more houses year in and year out.

Tip 2: Activities

The No. 1 activity is prospecting — lead generation. Generating listing leads costs you zero dollars out of pocket.

There are three lead buckets for listing agentssphere of influence, geographic farming and niche, or your specialty.

The important thing to remember about this listing agent tip is that you must have all three lead buckets rocking.

Picture a three-legged stool. All it takes is one broken or missing leg, and your attempt to sit will result in a fall.

Tip 3: People

You can act on a number of listing agent tips and never succeed if you don’t surround yourself with the right people.

You need team members to help you get things done. And remember this: The biggest mistake you can make is hiring people just like yourself as that brings no new skills to the table.

Tip 4: Systems

What would you do if you got 21 new listings this week? How would you handle this? If you have a system in place, then you don’t have to do anything differently. You just plug and play.

Tip 5: Tools

Listing agents must have the right tools for the job. And remember, there are different tools for a listing specialist than a buyer specialist.

These tools — seller book, pre-listing package, pre-listing video, etc. — should help you be well-known in your local market as the go-to listing agent expert.
