272 – Success secrets of Australia’s #1 Real Estate Agent, James Tostevin

James Tostevin has been ranked Australia’s #1 real estate agent (two years in a row) – that’s no mean feat. Fortunately he’s willing to share his real estate success secrets on Australia’s #1 marketing show.

James has been ranked the number one agent in Australia in both 2012/2013 and 2013/2014, based on several criteria including sales volume, number of sales and average sale price. He is also the only agent in Australia to sell more than $300 million worth of property in the past financial year. This has been attributed to James’ energy, diligence, determination and exceptional negotiation skills.

In this candid fireside chat James reveals:

  • What has had the most profound impact on his success
  • What he’s yet to master
  • What other agents aren’t getting right
  • How he makes 200 calls to clients per week (we even role play)
  • How he nurtures his list
  • And plenty more real estate agent success secrets

Plus I share some inspiring feedback from a listener who’s in the process of escaping the cubicle, I have some news on Flying Solo’s Small Business Awards and I have a motivational marketing quote from Henry Ford.

Yep, another big show … Let’s go!

MY TOP 3 MARKETING TIPS FROM THIS EPISODE

 

  1. Smile more … A smile can double your income.
  2. Never stop learning (go to more conferences).
  3. Continually nurture your list (and it doesn’t need to take an extraordinary amount of time – just a quick phone call to check-in). James holds an egg-timer during his calls!

  1. Definitely smile more! No one wants to work with a negative Nancy, and being a sour puss never makes any job easier to complete – it usually only makes you feel worse.
    I’m a glass half full kind of person and I could really relate to James optimism. I’m forever telling my tradie husband that now he works for himself he needs to be nicer to people hahaha!

  2. As we keep hearing it’s doing the simple things consistently that drives success, (but we keep looking for that magic shortcut). Thanks Timbo, keep it coming, it’s like a drink of fresh water to us thirsty entrepreneurs working outside of the big smoke.

  3. Love this interview. James is truly inspiring. Have to agree that a smile and showing GENUINE interest in others is a game changer. Another magic episode Timbo!
