    EP 009: Standing Out, Serving Well and Staying Joyful with Preston Sandlin

    EP 009: Standing Out, Serving Well and Staying Joyful with Preston Sandlin

    We make plans, and life laughs at us. Our path through life twists in ways we never expected, but if you can keep your focus on service and pursuing the skills and passions that help you show up as your best self, you can take every turn with confidence.
    Preston Sandlin has traveled a long way since the days when he set his sights on an Education major. Before long, an opportunity in home inspection came his way, and he found himself in an industry that he has both a skill and a passion for. Decades later, Preston owns Home Inspection Carolina and has achieved the highest training possible for a home inspector, along with an entire career’s worth of marketing knowledge and industry know-how.  
    On this episode of the Charlotte Real Estate Buzz podcast, John and Preston dig into the argument for (and best practices in) before-the-sale pre-inspection, how to find the thing that makes you both memorable and exceptional, and intentionally building in time to recharge and celebrate the wins. Listen in for a deep dive into value, innovation, and the importance of expanding your expertise.
    You’ll Learn  
    How impersonal, big-box commodities fall woefully short of the experience of going to a local real estate agent for help Why Preston pushed himself beyond basic home inspection and worked hard to cultivate his marketing skills as a whole What the rise of pre-inspection could mean in terms of providing more value to home buyers - and everyone involved in the process And much more!

    “You want to find something that makes you different...that might get people to use you the first time, but if you don’t bring the goods, they’re not going to use you again. You still have to have the goods, but you need something to make you stand out.”  - Preston Sandlin

    EP 006: How to Scale your Business and Sustain your Time Freedom with Nick Macri

    “Your business is your baby. You’ve got to take care of it every day. It’s not a plant that you water only once a day”. - Nick Macri
    Nick Macri is the millennial Co-Owner and Marketing Director of The Bill Price Realty Group with eXp Realty. Not long after beginning his career as a real estate investor, Nick realized that he could only sell as many homes as he has hours in a day. Determined to blast the cap off of his income potential, he networked his way to discovering the right platform for financial freedom. Along the way, he accumulated—and continues to accumulate—an ever-expanding tribe of like-minded friends that has gifted the young entrepreneur with a consistent edge in the market.
    On this episode of the Charlotte Real Estate Buzz podcast, John sits down with Nick to discuss his budding yet already incredibly successful career in real estate. Nick clears up common misconceptions about the industry, as well what it really takes to build a business that produces passive income that allows you to “go on vacation and not worry about when your next paycheck is going to come.”

    EP 005: Setting Your Real Estate Career on a Strong Foundation with Ernie Becker

    No matter how much you think you’re on the cutting edge of the latest technologies and marketing strategies, there’s no beating the salesperson who focuses on nurturing authentic relationships with their clients.
    Ernie “Big Ern” Becker is a 28-year veteran in the sales world, as well as a speaker, author, and Broker in Charge at United Real Estate, Queen City. As a master sales coach, his objective isn’t to teach his students new skill sets; instead, he aims to nurture their potential—to develop those unique abilities that already exist inside of them. Big Ern does this by asking two primary questions: “What do you think your greatest area of improvement is, and where do you think you shine at?”
    On this episode of the Charlotte Real Estate Buzz podcast, John sits down with Big Ern to discuss his 28-year career in sales. He shares how he, in an ironic twist of fate, went from initially having an intense hatred for sales to becoming one of the most sought-after coaches today.
    You’ll Learn  
    The crucial difference between the job of real estate and the business of real estate When, in your real estate career, you should invest in a coach Why focusing on your relationship with the client (rather than the money) is the key to thriving amid disruption and innovation in the marketplace And much more!
