In the Real Estate industry, as in most sales professions, prospecting is a dirty word. Far too many people enter the field of Real Estate believing they can wait for the phone to ring and earn a great living. Unfortunately, many new agents set themselves up for failure by this approach to the business.A real estate professional¿s goal is to list and sell real estate. One of the primary keys to being successful is to identify those people who truly want or need to move, and find a way to meet with them. This concept of identifying and targeting likely buyers and sellers is called prospecting, and it is a process, not an event.

The real estate agent's secret weapon for making a killing in the business. According to the National Association fo Realtors, 86 percent of new real estate agents don't make it past their first year. The majority give up due to frustration and the overwhelming start-up costs involved in the industry. But there is an untapped resource that will help agents take their careers to new heights--the For-Sale-By-Owner (FSBO) listing. Many homeowners try to sell their home without an agent, believing that they can find a buyer just as quickly and avoid paying a commission. Author John Maloof has built a stellar career by farming FSBOs: he made six figures his first year as a real estate agent using his prospecting plan. Now, he shows other agents how they can do the same.

Success in real estate is very elusive. As agents, we start our businesses looking for money and flexible hours to do what we want to do, but all too often those dreams are dashed to pieces by the crushing realities and difficulties of being real estate professionals. There simply isn't enough time in the day to do everything we want to get done, and there doesn't seem to be enough resources to make it happen. Often, we find ourselves working late nights and during the weekends with very little money to show for it. Financial hardship, irregular income, and mental and emotional fatigue are too common in this industry. The business of real estate can be very, very hard if we are not fully prepared to embrace the demands of such a rewarding yet competitive profession. The good news is that there is hope. You can conquer the chaos, you can have the business you always wanted, and you can have a great life. Many have done it, and there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to. Over the past 15 years, I've personally coached and interviewed thousands of agents, and 30 of the top agents in the country including #4 and #7 according to Forbes and the Wall Street Journal and I discovered that they all do different things in different ways, but they all do the major things the same way. What they don't do? They don't do Cold Calls They don't call expired listings They don't work with For Sale By Owners They don't just send postcards What they do is 100X more powerful than ANY of those things. And even now, hardly anybody understands the strategy. The following pages are filled with exciting stories and ideas from successful brokers and agents who are going to share with us what works and what it takes to build a successful real estate practice in today's crowded real estate industry. Our purpose at The Montiel Organization is to help real estate agents succeed by following a three-step process. First, increase profitability. Second, put in place systems to automate the business. Third, scale the practice to make more money and have more free time. These three steps are the reason our company exists. Having worked with thousands of agents, we've seen consistent patterns among those agents that are successful and those that are not. In this book I have interviewed 12 of the most successful real estate agents and brokers in North America. They are in the top 1% of their peers in the nation, and they have consistently grown their revenues, profits, and positive reputations based on their uniquely valuable problem-solving throughout the marketplace. They increasingly transform the structures, relationships, and systems within their businesses. The insights they have all generously shared with me during our interviews for the Miami Real Estate Show are invaluable. Enjoy the book!

#1 Best-Seller on Amazon! According to recent surveys the average real estate agent makes less than $10,000 a year and close to 90% of new agents will not last more than two years in the business. Fewer than 10% of agents will make over $100,000 and the majority that do have been in the business for decades. The average real estate agent sells 12 homes a year and for agents that are just starting out that number is less than four. In 2012 Dan Lesniak used a unique strategy to upend the industry trends. In his first year in real estate Dan had over 36 transactions totaling over $22 million in sold volume, making him one of the most successful rookie real estate agents ever on his way to taking over one of the most competitive market areas in the country, that had previously been dominated by agents with over 10 years experience. In The HyperLocal, Hyper Fast Real Estate Agent, Dan tells how he used the Segmentation, Targeting and Positioning (STP) framework to identify potential markets, choose which ones to go after and how to add massive value to the consumers in that market. This book will teach you how to use the STP framework to enter new markets or increase market share in your existing markets by adding more value to your potential clients and communicating your value proposition to the market. Whether you are a new agent getting started or a veteran agent looking for more growth this book will show you how to do it using examples of how Dan did it in the hyper competitive Arlington, VA (Greater Washington DC) market. What Other Industry Leaders Have Said About the Book "I have been coaching realtors for 22 years. Dan is the best business man who sells real estate that I've ever seen. He has great systems, structures, and processes. That is what separates him from the rest!" -Rick Ruby - Core Head Coach One of my favorite sayings is "follow the yellow brick road." In this book, Dan clearly lays out the path to the Emerald City, avoiding all the dangers of creating your own way. In Dan's first year, he closed over $22 million in sales, a feat matched by only the tiniest fraction of real estate agents-regardless of experience. If you are looking for a step-by-step plan from someone who has done it, this is the book for you! -Pam O'Bryant, Chief Engagement Officer for Keller Williams Capital Properties, Contributor to Gary Keller's The Millionaire Real Estate Agent book There is no greater opportunity right now in the real estate industry than there is in the expansion market. This will require you to grow in your existing market and know how to expand in new ones. This book is a great example of how to rapidly expand in any market and is a must read for expansion team leaders. -Noah Ostroff, Chief Executive Officer of Global Living and Top Selling Keller Williams Agent Dan Lesniak is the real deal. He runs the most profitable real estate team I know of, hands down. If you want to compress time to achieve your goals, listen to this guy and take action now! -Jeff Latham, President of Latham Realty Unlimited with 275 homes sold annually Dan and I first met when he was just getting started in the business, and I have been blown away at how he was able to grow his brand so rapidly in a very competitive market. Dan's creative approach and tenacity has served him well, and he is a great example of how to commit and succeed as a young real estate agent. -Thad Wise, Senior Vice President with First Savings Mortgage Corporation and $100 Million Loan Officer Dan Lesniak is by far one of the brightest and highest-skilled real estate agents I have had the pleasure of working with; his strategies for his clients are brilliant! Dan has succeeded in one of the most competitive markets in the country, while also growing his brokerage and giving back to the community. -Elysia Stobbe, Real Estate RockStar and #1 Best Selling Author of How To Get Approved for the Best Mortgage Without Sticking a Fork in Your Eye
