Offer Accepted

Do you know how your personal development affects your professional development as a real estate admin? Believe it or not, the two might have more in common than you think!   I have two of my favorite people on the podcast this week - Margaret Smith & Kathleen Metcalf. If you’ve interacted with any of my materials, you’ve probably heard me name-drop them a few times. Margaret & Kathleen both run several businesses, and they’ve come together to create a program for real estate admins called “Be You. The Inner Circle.”    Today’s goal is to tackle the topic of admin professional development, and to emphasize the importance of putting personal development first (which is something that so many admins struggle to do)! Not only that, but we’ll dive into how you can build yourself up to be fulfilled in both your life and career.  About "Be You. The Inner Circle"  Program Website (i.e. EVERYTHING you need!)

You Don't Need to Know the Systems Yourself with Kathleen Metcalf

I Love Recruiting

On this episode, Adam talks to agent and admin coach Kathleen Metcalf about how she helps train administrative assistants for top producing real estate agents.  She shares how years ago she started to realize that agents who were doing 25-40 deals a year had something in common: they had admin assistants.  After realizing that, she started to research what made a good admin and saw that having systems for every part of the real estate transaction made them successful.  She then started training admins to be best fits for the specific realtor who needed their service, and focused how she trained the admin around how the agent had become successful with their unique strengths.  She shares how some agents get to a certain level of success and think they need to learn how to implement systems, when in fact, they don't need to know the systems, they just need to hire someone who does.  For more info on Kathleen, check out her websitewww.kathleenmetcalf.comOr check out her courses and hiring practices atwww.hire-lab.comAnd for free support, check out her Facebook grouphttps://www.facebook.com/groups/RealEstateTeamDevelopmentAnd to take a look at the company she uses to help hire admin for agents, go tohttps://www.proreastaffing.com/
