Episode 248 – 5th Anniversary Episode – Bill and Sean Carpenter Reminisce About the First Five Years

Read more

Episode Summary:

This week’s episode of the Real Estate Sessions Podcast is quite different from the usual episodes. This week, I celebrate my fifth anniversary of the Real Estate Sessions Podcast! Joined by my friend, Sean Carpenter, who has been on the show several times now and was one of the first original guests on the show.

In this episode, join Sean and me as we reminisce on some of the most significant guests, the best advice for those getting started, and some of the technological changes that have benefited the podcast productions over the years. Having listened to every episode, Sean makes a great addition to reflect on how the podcast has adapted with the times while staying true to its original purpose. Listen in to hear some of the greatest stories shared over the years and some advice to potential future podcasters!

Top Takeaways: 

  • Bill’s Favorite Pieces of Advice for New Agents
  • “Matt Beall’s [advice] is amazing. It’s to meditate. Learn how to focus because you need to focus on what you do. That ability to clear your thoughts, whatever happens, happens.” [19:33]
  • “Jeff Sibbach. I talk about his [advice] all the time. His was to go see 200 homes in the first 30 days of the business. When I say that to realtors and broker-owners, they always go wow that’s a great idea. You have a ton of time, why not see what the market looks like. The more market data you have, the better. Knowing what people value on a property, knowing what the prices look like, and eventually, it would be so cool to track that and see what they sold for.” [20:05]

“Build relationships, solve problems, and have fun.” – Sean Carpenter [06:05]

“I’m going to be transparent here; I’m asking questions that I want to know. If people want to come along for the ride good for them.” – Bill Risser [23:39]

Episode Notes: 

When starting the podcast, I never could have imagined that I would be making my 248th episode and be celebrating my fifth anniversary of the Real Estate Sessions Podcast. It’s been so much fun, I have learned so much from my guests, and have connected with some truly great people. I see no end in sight as I love learning more about the guests I have on the show! In this episode, I wanted to reminisce about some of my favorite guests, some of the best advice on the show, and how the podcast continued to grow to be better as we go along.

I found that there were very few podcasts out there that focused on the guest’s story, and since then, even more, real estate podcasts have been created. They tend to focus on only one practical aspect, and I wanted a podcast that was more about the actual person on the episode. I enjoy spending time figuring out what the guest’s life was pre-real estate and how they ended up in the industry.

I have had a wide variety of guests on the show over the years. Nine CEOs of local or state associations, eleven CEOs of tech companies, sixteen founders of companies, ten people in the marketing side of real estate, thirty-nine broker-owners, and eighty-three realtors! I have found that the most interesting to me is the broker-owners as they have to get to a place in their lives where they made that leap to leave the relative safety of working for a company to run their own broker company.

There have been over 246 answers to the questions of what advice you would give to an agent just starting in the business, and a few have stuck out to me. Matt Beall’s is to meditate. You must learn how to focus because you need to focus on what you do every day. Having the ability to clear your thoughts and know that whatever happens, happens is truly great advice. Jeff Sibbach’s information that I give the most is to go see 200 homes in the first 30 days of being a realtor. When you start, you have a lot of time, so why not go and see what the market looks like—the more market data you have, the better. Knowing what people value on a property and what the prices look like in your area can be extremely beneficial to your start as a realtor.

The most common answer to the question though, is to get a mentor. It’s incredibly important, if not critical, to have somebody to help support and walk you down your path. Sean shares some answers, such as knowing your numbers, knowing the market, and sticking to a schedule. My advice to young podcasters is that if you’re passionate about what you are doing and love what you are doing, you will be consistent and continue the journey. I love finding out more and more about people, and that’s what keeps me going on The Real Estate Sessions Podcast!

183 - "The Whole Floor Was Crawling" - Sean Carpenter

Read more

There’s nothing like starting the morning off right with beer, cigarettes, and an episode (or ten) of Jerry Springer! Sean Carpenter, a speaker, educator,  trainer, and REALTOR®  of 21 years never knew the winning morning routine – until he had his very first transaction. He kept his cool (and his sense of humor) throughout the tour and knew it was right to be respectful and courteous despite the oddities he encountered around the house. Sean lives by the motto that real estate should be about building relationships, solving problems, and having fun – which is exactly what he’s done. Listen in to learn the value of communication and why a relationship is worth much more than a commission check.  

  • 01:00 – Introducing Sean, a speaker, educator, trainer, and REALTOR® from Ohio
  • 01:20 – He’s been in real estate for 21 years and previously worked playing golf professionally and selling beer
  • 02:20 – He loved coaching and training but hated managing
  • 02:41 – His company is called Sean Speaks, LLC and he sells occasionally, too
  • 03:10 – His parent’s REALTOR® was his first mentor; he transitioned from selling beer to real estate to have more balanced hours and to start a family
  • 05:25 – Sean’s CSIRE story
  • 05:31 – It was his very first transaction with a client from the beer company; they were looking at rural properties
  • 06:00 – There were cars in the overgrown yard and the TV was blaring with two men sitting on the floor watching Jerry Springer
  • 06:40 – It was midmorning and they had empty beer bottles all over the coffee table and overflowing ashtrays
  • 07:05 – The men told them to look around – that they were just renting – and that their “old ladies” were in the kitchen
  • 07:30 – The ladies had even more cigarette butts and there was a huge pile of dirty dishes; it was a spectacle
  • 07:45 – There was a Rottweiler chained to the bed in the master bedroom and 3.5 inches of dryer lint across the entire basement floor
  • 10:00 – Afterwards, the listing agent asked if the tenants were home and what they were watching; he was happy it was Jerry Springer and not porn like the day before
  • 11:25 – Another CSIRE story
  • 11:35 – The property was near the Ohio State campus; they tried opening the front door but it was wedged shut
  • 11:55 – The back door was open and they walked in; a student was passed out, drunk and naked, laying against the front door
  • 12:15 – The client said he had an appointment so he walked over the guy and kept touring the place
  • 13:00 – Communication is important – between REALTORS® and clients, clients and showing coordinators, sellers, and buyers
  • 13:55 – Be respectful to the homes and the people in them when you show a home
  • 14:55 – A tip for 2020
  • 15:10 – Real estate is about 3 things: Building relationships, solving problems and having fun
  • 16:09 – REALTORS®, remember that relationships last longer than a commission check and consumers, look for a REALTOR® that values your relationship
  • 16:15 – How to contact Sean: go to www.seancarpenter.com, his blog https://www.carpscorner.net/, on Twitter or on all other social media channels

3 Key Points

  • Having a sense of humor is a must in real estate!
  • Be respectful – no matter what crazy shit you see.
  • Real estate is about building relationships, solving problems and having fun.

Never underestimate the Power of Nice.       Nice Guy’s New Year 2019   ‘Twas the week after Christmas for the podcasting Nice Guys They were back on dry land, thankful their cruise ship didn’t capsize. Because they recorded last week’s shows as they drank on the boat They asked me to join ‘em today to read the poem that I wrote   It’s not a holiday poem anymore because it’s not Christmas time But you’ll still enjoy my story because it’s funny and rhymes. So, sit back and listen while the guys grab a snack I’ll get things started by saying “Welcome back, welcome back.”   On one side of the mic is Strickland from Texas He drives a red shiny new Tesla, instead of a Lexus On the other side of the mic is Sandler, or Doug if you like He doesn’t own a car, but he did buy a bike.   After 700+ episodes of the podcast, things were going so great So why did they decide to leave the Old Line State? You see both guys used to live in Baltimore, by the Chesapeake Bay But Doug had some personal issues and he moved to LA   Now although the podcast isn’t known for relationship advice, If you have questions about divorce, ask Doug, he’s been through it twice. Left all alone in Maryland after Doug bolted West Strickland and his family thought it’d be best…   To sell their Maryland house for almost less than it cost him And so they packed up and moved to a new home in Austin While no one really knows what Data Analysts do We hope his new Office Space in the basement has his stapler too.   With all of this movement that could make them quite dizzy, The TurnKey podcasting venture has kept the boys busy. The Nice Guys podcast continues to air five days a week But it’s not recommended if - a – good-  show you do seek.   Monday, Wednesday, and Friday you’ll hear Doug as the host When it comes to interviews, he’s better than most He’ll dig for some insights, about business and sales But on Tuesday and Thursday the show jumps off the rails   It’s just Doug and Strickland talking and sharing a laugh They try to stay organized, they try to stay on task But within minutes of starting, Doug is off on a whim And then Strick’s lost the reigns as soon as they begin.   Sometimes they have topics to keep them on track But as soon as Strickland starts the show “Welcome back, welcome back” Doug says, “Before we begin, can I just ask a just go off topic?” Proving his attention span is below microscopic.   The “Fuckery Shows” as they’re perhaps better known Will make you laugh, make you cry, make you cringe, make you groan

As I take a break for the holidays, I have chosen a couple of popular episodes to replay as part of the TRES Rewind series. This week, it's Sean Carpenter from September 2015. Sean was my 5th guest and as I listen back to the early days of the podcast, I cringe just a bit. Not because of the guests. but because of my inexperience with the medium. Please don't let that dissuade you from checking out Sean's story of building relationships, solving problems and having fun.
