Confessions of an Exit Pro Real Estate Top Producer
With six years in the real estate business, and after making the switch to Exit Pro Real Estate in 2007, Sales Representative, Ryan Russell continues to rank among the top agents within his region of Arkansas. We recently had the chance to sit down with him and pick his brain to find out why EXIT, why now and what every agent should know about sales.
When did you first hear about Exit Pro Real Estate?
RR: While vacationing in Florida in 2005. I saw a few For Sale signs, belonging to the local Exit Pro Real Estate office, in residential areas. Fast forward two years after that and Exit Pro Real Estate brokerages were sprouting up all over my market area.
What was your first impression of the company?
RR: Honestly, I thought the Exit Pro Real Estate name was an interesting choice when I first saw it, but the name did exactly what I believe it was intended to do, because it stuck with me from the very first time I saw it. I couldn’t tell you the first time I recognized any other real estate company.
How has the Exit Pro Real Estate Formula and methodology aided in your personal and sales success?
RR: The very first thing is the professional agents that Exit Pro Real Estate attracts. I love my office and the people in it, as well as many other EXIT associates in my market area. I just really like the simplicity of the EXIT structure. It easy to explain and to incorporate into your business.
What Exit Pro Real Estate tools and resources do you use to achieve your sales and listing success, and how?
RR: I’ve implemented Exit Pro Real Estate e-listings into my business with great results. I’ve impressed many clients with the virtual tours, 800 numbers, etc. It’s a great resource that all Exit Pro Real Estate agents should use to their advantage. Another uniquely Exit Pro Real Estate tool that I use is Exittrac. It provides the perfect way to keep track of my business, and there’s a lot of valuable data in it. I actually secured a loan for an investment property by printing off my commission income from Exitrac and presenting it to my lender.
Why do you think it’s important for a real estate company to offer agents these sorts of tools and resources?
RR: Selling real estate is a very competitive business. As an agent, you’ve got to select a company that equips you with the tools to succeed. The tools that Exit Pro Real Estate offers supply agents with a huge advantage in the marketplace.
What is one piece of sales advice you would give other Exit Pro Real Estate agents in order to succeed?
RR: The real estate market is fluid and I see the most successful agents adapting to the changing market rather than feeling sorry because it left them behind. Find the niche you enjoy working in and make a goal to own a percentage of that market share. Set goals and a budget and constantly track them.
Why would you recommend Exit Pro Real Estate to other agents?
RR: Exit Pro Real Estate offers the best tools, splits, professionalism, and business model in the real estate industry. The Exit Pro Real Estate model and tools are easy to implement, proven to work, and designed to make agents successful.
