John C. Maxwell
How serious are you about building a business that stands out from the clutter and gives you the income and freedom so you can live your best life?
If you’re ready to get after it and do what it takes to succeed, this is for you!
In markets with little competition, the product and the offering are often the most important factor that a prospect uses to decide what company to work with.
But in a cluttered market, with lots of competition, like today’s real estate world… credibility has grown to trump “product” as the main deciding factor that can make or break your next deal.
So, what are the top 5% of real estate investors and agents doing to build more credibility in the market to make their competition irrelevant while they try tactic after tactic to catch up?
Trevor dives into specific examples and lays out his Credibility Score theory to help you determine what you should fix ASAP to build your credibility even more. Listen to our other episodes at www.CarrotCast.com
