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

Ep. 217: Julia Ray Shares How to Move Beyond the Alphabet Soup of Credentials

September 25, 2020

What kind of credentials do you have?

You may have alphabet soup behind your name...but what do you do with those letters?

And how to turn those letters behind your name into something practical and meaningful in your business?

When you focus on your business, and what you can do to make yourself better, you can use those letters behind your name to help you provide the most excellent service to your clients and leads.

See, real estate isn’t just about gaining education: it’s about using that education to help your clients make the best decisions.

Your job is to help educate your clients: not make decisions for them! The more educated you are, the more equipped you’ll be to help educate your clients!

Julia Ray has turned that alphabet soup into connections, and has built a thriving boutique business. You’re going to be inspired by how she uses that education to connect with her clients and leads!

This week on the Selling the Dream podcast, get ready to see how you can use those credentials to build connections. You won’t want to miss this week’s episode of the Selling the Dream podcast!
