Your Number One Leadership Asset


The number one asset for all leaders is their integrity, their character.

Real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard, says that integrity and character lead to trust, and when your people trust you, they will follow you and help your company grow, no matter how tough the market.

Little things make a difference. For example, asking the receptionist to tell a client that you are not in, when you are, erodes your integrity in the eyes of all team members present.

“Little white lie” – there’s no such thing.

Habits Reign Supreme


Whether a real estate agency leader, or a salesperson, good habits propel you toward success, while bad habits hold you back.

Real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard, believes that repeated actions become habits over time. Repeat the right actions and good habits form. Unproductive actions, or inaction, also become habit – bad ones.

Habits reign supreme – wouldn’t it be better to develop habits that lead to success?

Keep Marketing

It’s an easy option to blame the market when business is slow, but real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard, asks, “How much marketing are you doing?”.

When promoting advertising to clients, real estate agents often advise sellers that they should not keep their property ‘a secret’. Shouldn’t they follow their own advice and market their own agencies?

Where Are You Taking Your Company


As the owner of a real estate business, you are its leader. Real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard, suggests that, as the leader, you should know exactly where you are taking your company. Fail to plan and you run the risk of leading your company downwards. Where are you taking your company? Do you know?

Sack Your Dilberts


While the cartoon series, Dilbert, might be funny, real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard, says that in real life, Dilberts can be anything but. He quotes author, Geoff Burch, who offers sound advice: Sack Your Dilberts!

The Right Amount Of Pressure


There is a difference between threatening team members with dismissal for poor performance and applying positive pressure to perform. In this short leadership session, real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard, says that winners thrive on positive pressure, while mediocre performers detest it. But do you want mediocrity on your team?

Unattractive Company


One of the top three greatest real estate excuses of all time is: “You can’t find good people!” In this leadership session, real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard gives a compelling reason why most real estate agencies fail to build winning teams: they are unattractive companies.

Never utter those profit-killing words, “You can’t find good people”. The first step in building a winning team is to believe that you can find winners. The second step is to make your company more attractive to potential recruits.

Cut To The Chase


Have you ever noticed how some people say five sentences when a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ would have sufficed? Some people speak a lot but say little. Real estate agencies cannot afford to have team members like that.

In this short leadership session, real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard, says that salespeople who waffle confuse clients and lose business. Salespeople who waffle to their colleagues lose respect. Cut to the chase – every team will benefit from some straight talk.

Money In The Bank


What most real estate agents refer to as ‘Marketing’ is really nothing more than ‘Advertising’. Advertising is just one small component of the large umbrella that is Marketing. Agents place ads on property portals, they erect signs and distribute leaflets, but these are all advertising. What other MARKETING do they do? Not much really.

In this short leadership session, real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard, explores one marketing channel that is guaranteed to put money in the bank.

Whose Bright Idea Is This?

It is no secret that far too many business people, salespeople and leaders, hold training in low regard. In this short leadership session, real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard, asks, “Whose bright idea is this?”

How would you feel if you went to a doctor who qualified in 1960, but who never attended a training course since? Mediocrity and lack of training are close cousins!

Break Even Early

“If you want to boost your real estate agency’s profit, put more focus on your agency’s Break Even Point”, says real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard. “The sooner you break even, the sooner you begin to profit”.

How much focus do you give your Break Even Point? How many sales does your office need to break even each month? These are figures that all real estate agency owners MUST know!

What is a Result

The best leaders Pittard works with NEVER allow their offices to close unless their agencies have at least one real result for the day. But what is a REAL result? In this short leadership session, real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard, explains the four results and shows the importance of focusing on them. You incur expenses every day, so shouldn’t your real estate agency be getting results every day?

Eleven Attributes of Leadership

Whether you run an agency and have a team to lead, or you are a salesperson with clients to lead, you are a leader. And let’s not forget that we must also lead ourselves.

In his book, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill names Eleven Major Attributes of Leadership. In this short leadership session, real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard, discusses these eleven attributes and offers tips for applying them to your business.

The Leader As Coach

Salespeople need far more coaching than typical salespeople receive. In this short leadership session, real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard, says that while there are many good seminars and presenters in the marketplace, there are simply not enough regular seminars in your town or city for that method of training to be sufficient to develop a winning team.

Not only must the real estate agency have access to the latest training, delivered through modern training delivery systems, the leader must step up and coach.

Let’s Look At The Real Problem

In some markets, real estate agents often say that they have plenty of listings, but need buyers. Real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard, says that this thinking is unprofitable. “Look at the real problem”, Gary says. The real problem is not too many listings, but not enough SALEABLE listings. All real estate agencies could do with more listings that are priced to sell.

Salaries: Expense or Return?

Many real estate agency principals suffer from ‘salary phobia’: they view salaries as an expense instead of an investment. Real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard, says that this salary phobia leads agency owners to use commission-only or debit-credit reward schemes, and in doing so cause their agencies to haemorrhage profit.

Stop Slumps Before They Occur


Any real estate agency leader can tell when a salesperson is in a slump, but according to real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard, the real art lies in stopping slumps before they occur. With the right tools, agency leaders can keep their teams on track, producing results and higher profits.

Make Them Feel Important


Sometimes being a real estate salesperson is hard slog. There is pressure to bring in results, rejection to be faced on an almost daily basis, and then there’s the loneliness of being out often until late in the evening doing listing presentations to strangers in strangers’ homes. It can be tough.

Some leaders might find this hard to believe, but many salespeople suffer from poor self-esteem. You will know these people instantly – they are the ones who get ‘eaten up’ by sales and are the ones who most often leave.

In this sort leadership session, real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard, discusses the importance of making our team members feel important.

Keep The Team Busy

Idle hands, idle mind, so the saying goes. School children who are kept busy with sport and similar extra-curricular activities are less likely to hang around in shopping malls getting into trouble. Busyness is a cure for an idle mind.

In this short leadership session, real estate agency profit consultant, Gary Pittard, suggests that this same principle applies in team management: leaders who want their offices to do well must keep their teams busy. Teams that aren’t kept busy have too much time to think, and left unchecked, this thinking becomes negative. They worry about things like the state of the economy or the state of the market. Before long sales suffer.
