Have you been working yourself to the bone with little success, taking time away from your loved ones and trying to secure leads using every technique in the book? We’ve all been there.
Or perhaps you once heard there was a “magical solution” or a “quick fix” out there for instant success and secretly hoped it was true. We’ve been there, too. But if that’s what you’re looking for, you won’t find it here.
If you’re looking for a network of actual real estate agents who understand the business and are dedicated to improving their strategies and sharing results, you’re in the right place.
At Smart Agents, we know the best teachers are real estate agents — agents who are out there every day, finding leads, converting them into listings and selling homes for the most money in the least amount of time.
That’s why we’ve curated training from the best and brightest in the field to share what’s working and help YOU become successful — rather than claiming to know everything ourselves. (We know some stuff, but we don’t know everything!)
Our goal is to create a thriving network of real estate agents who help each other succeed. Welcome aboard, fellow Smart Agent.
Simply put, the 80/20 rule states that the relationship between input (effort) and output (result) is rarely, if ever, balanced. When applied to your business, it means approximately 20 percent of your efforts produce 80 percent of your results. Learning to recognize and then focus on that 20 percent is the key to making the most effective use of your time.
We don’t believe in shortcuts. But toiling endlessly is ineffective and leads to burnout. Instead, we understand that the quickest pathway to success is discovering the profitable actions that deliver the biggest results — and working smarter, not harder.Read more
Part of the reason we want you to work smart instead of hard is because we believe in work/life balance and spending time with loved ones. When you take time to unplug and do the things that matter, you’re more productive.Read more
One person doesn’t have all the answers. That’s why we do our best to curate tips from our own experiences and the experiences of other agents to help you succeed.
How did Smart Agents come about? Well, it all started with the recession in 2008, when the market wasn’t great and we really had to put our heads together. See, back then, we were agents ourselves, and we needed to sell houses! How could we entice buyers who were watching every penny in an economic slump? After some brainstorming, we came up with a new strategy we called “Sold in a Week.”
The strategy was, in CEO Calvin Curry’s words, a “hybrid auction,” in which a home’s price was slashed to attract deal-seeking buyers to attend an open house and make their best offer on a tight deadline. It worked like gangbusters; we were selling tons of homes in 7 days flat, and the homeowners loved us for it.
The success of this marketing experiment, in effect, led to Smart Agents as we know it today. Agents all over the country heard about the Sold in a Week strategy, and they wanted to know how they could implement it within their own markets. Little by little, more agents requested training, and the company continued to grow. As of 2019, the brand Smart Agents has provided training to more than 32,000 real estate agents, including you!
