    Dishin' Dirt on What is Your "Why", How to Sale without Selling with Mike Cuevas the Real Estate Marketing Dude

    Dishin' Dirt on What is Your "Why", How to Sale without Selling with Mike Cuevas the Real Estate Marketing Dude

    What is your "why"?  You have to have a "why", your reason that people should use you as their real estate agent instead of one of the other 40,000 agents in your market. If you don't know your "why", how does the consumer?

    Mike Cuevas, the often irreverent and funny Real Estate Marketing Dude, joins Dishin' Dirt to teach you how to find your "why" and how to sale without selling.  He is absolutely spot on and equally hilarious.  

    Also, in this episode I examine a worrisome trend in some listings on MLS.

    Dishin' Dirt on Netflix Did Not Kill Blockbuster, Not Listening to Their Customers Did!

    Dishin' Dirt on Netflix Did Not Kill Blockbuster, Not Listening to Their Customers Did!

    The myth in business is that Netflix killed Blockbuster. The reality is Blockbuster failed because they refused to listen to their customers. The customers wanted streaming. Blockbuster tried to convince the consumers they were wrong.  And they failed.

    In real estate we are primed for a disrupter in the marketplace.  Over the years we have seen disruptions in real estate in the form of the internet, social media, video and Zillow. So what is next? But more importantly, are you going to be like every other agent or are you going to be a disrupter and become the next "Top Agent".  One thing every top agent has in common is they disrupted the market in some form. If you want to be a top agent you can't keep doing it the same way as everyone else. Now is the time to change and take a chance at being a disrupter.
