What I Learned In A Short Time…
I wanted to take a second and heap some well deserved praise on Karl Krentzel and his coaching.
I only coached with Karl for a few months last summer and was a new investor with a couple deals to my name. I had just transitioned to working for myself full-time doing a variety of things, but my goal was to make real estate my number 1.
I had no idea how to setup my schedule, what should be a priority, what to say or what NOT to say.. I basically didn’t know what I didn’t know. I struggled with a lot of those things at the beginning, but Karl laid out step by step plans each week, and always catered to my speed (which was slow).
Turns out, script practice is huge. I spend about 30 minutes every morning working on them by myself or with others. I never had issues talking with people, but I had issues with what to say, and especially ‘what to say when they say’ scenarios. Thanks Karl.
Time blocking.. also huge. At first I couldn’t manage to put together consecutive hours of prospecting without other tasks popping up as they always do. Blocking out 2 hours a day no matter what happens made all the difference. Thanks Karl.
Lead follow-up. I read somewhere that leads that are followed up with more than 10 times account for more than 50% of sales closed. I didn’t have a good system for lead follow up and didn’t realize how important it was. Karl’s trick was simple.. Use 3×5 cards. I started that when leads started to come in, and now I always have follow up calls to make and have converted one into a deal after calling 9 times. Thanks Karl.
If you’ve considered coaching, I highly recommend Karl. Out of many resources I’ve uncovered over the last year or so, he shoots the straightest (and his pills are the reddest).
Also, I am an investing Realtor in the Phoenix area. If I can be of any assistance (bird dogging, comping, script practicing) please reach out. I’d be happy to help!
