Coaching isn’t just for professional athletes. Real estate agents and brokers also benefit from the guidance and support of a coach. More than half of respondents to a 2014 survey by Inman said their business increased by at least 25 percent during the first year of working with a coach.
Of course, it can be pricey. Personal coaching costs most of the Inman respondents between $300 and $749 per month. Did you know that Help-U-Sell Real Estate offers small group coaching to our franchisees for no fee? Groups are limited to a small number of members, and they’re segmented based on the goals of the participants.
Coaching group members have weekly assignments such as creating a marketing budget and tracking their leads. They also learn from each other during open discussions.
In 2015, our brokers who participated in an internal coaching program saw an average revenue increase of 41.4 percent over 2014.
John Powell, one of Help-U-Sell Real Estate’s coaches, attributes this improvement to the change in point of view a coach is able to provide to a broker.
“A coach can stand outside of the business and view it with a different perspective than the broker who’s involved in the day-to-day operation,” said Powell. “The great thing about our program is, there’s no charge to our franchisees. It’s just a time investment.”
Participants see positive results from the guidance they receive.
“I think our business has benefited considerably,” said Eric Stalter, broker-owner of Help-U-Sell East Valley. “By setting goals on paper and tracking my leads and conversions, I am able to follow my business growth and actually see where I need change and improvement.”
If you’re interested in being coached, contact the corporate office. Jack Bailey of broker-owner of Help-U-Sell Greensboro, and the corporate office’s Powell and James Dingman all have openings in their weekly groups. Not yet one of our franchisees?

When it’s time to sell your home, there are many things you need to do to get it and yourself ready. These include what to provide to make showing and selling easier (a lock box, signs), how to change your mindset (your home is now a product), what to discuss with your agent (how will offers be presented?, what does the paperwork look like?), and how to choose an agent (what are his listings’ average days on market?, review testimonials) .

When we decided to host a training event in Honolulu last fall, we expected about 15 to 20 attendees. But several of our mainland offices couldn’t pass up a chance to learn and go on vacation at the same time, so we are enjoying a great turnout for our learning and networking session and having some fun, too!
Some of our top franchisees and their agents are receiving training on leads management, becoming buyer consultants, and best practices on social media, among other topics. We’re also unveiling our new responsive website and other new technology tools.
At Help-U-Sell Real Estate, we want to help our sellers save the most money. A seller can do this by being an active participant in the sale of his home. It’s easier than you might think. Finding the buyer often simply means telling family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers that your home is on the market. Showing your home can be done on your schedule, and your agent will give you training and guidance. Once you’ve found potential buyers, you turn them over to your agent to handle the heavy lifting: from negotiations to paperwork to closing.
