Selling the Dream: A Podcast for Resort & 2nd Home Real Estate Agents

Selling the Dream: A Podcast for Resort & 2nd Home Real Estate Agents

Ep. 183: May Mastermind Replay

May 29, 2020

Technology is amazing, isn’t it?

During our May mastermind, Kenny, my assistant in charge of technology was on the East Coast, I was in Hawaii, and our guest moderator and expert, Laurie Carlson, was in Florida!

Thanks to technology, even from a distance we were able to connect!

That’s one of my biggest takeaways from this pandemic: we can use technology to keep going!

Whether it be a mastermind meeting all over the country, showing leads from our feeder markets homes, or even running webinars about your area, teaching people how to buy a home, technology can help you every step of the way!

Today, we’re reviewing some absolutely free tools, and the tips and tricks you need to know to master them!

Facebook, and Google Business can be the key to engaging hundreds, if not thousands, of qualified leads who are ready to buy!

Come listen in to our mastermind through the power of technology, and gain insights on how you can use these free tools to your advantage!

Laurie Carlson is a master at Google Business, and you’ll be amazed at how such a simple, free tool can help you be found when people are looking for real estate agents in their area!
