Gualtieri went on to discuss what makes the top agents so good and how lower-level agents can go about giving themselves a chance to become top agents. We then went on to talk about goal setting and the need to not set goals too high.

Later in the show, we discussed the role of a coach and the importance of getting a coach who is being well-coached himself or herself. We finished off by talking about leadership, all the challenges that you may face and the importance of clear thinking.

Build trust and be realistic

Trust is one of the most important things in the real estate industry. Whether that be the trust between an agent and client or trust between an agent and his or her coach.

If you want to be a top agent, you need to plan meticulously and know exactly what you are doing at each stage in the process. You have to set realistic goals and build slowly over time.

If you set yourself the goal of improving your turnover by 25 percent every year, you will see a 100 percent improvement in four years. This much more manageable than saying you want to see a 100 percent increase in a year. If you do that you will be setting yourself up to fail.
