The Best Way to Build Your Real Estate Business

Jim Remley has been active in the real estate business for thirty-one years. Today, he leads one of the largest real estate firms in the state of Oregon with the John L. Scott franchise. Jim’s team closes 2500 transactions a year and does nearly a billion dollars in sales volume with 190 active brokers. He is also the founder of and host of the Erealestatecoach podcast. In this episode of Pursuing Freedom, Jim joins us to share his story and teach us how to create abundance through the simplicity of action.

It’s All About Relationships

Before Jim got into the real estate business, he was working at a lumber mill and going to college full-time. When the opportunity presented itself, he quit everything and jumped into real estate with both feet. It took him a while to accept that he couldn’t achieve the level of success he wanted on his own, so he sought out coaches and mentors, and started building his tribe—that’s when Jim’s career transformed! He listed over 150 properties his second year and devoured every resource he could get his hands on. Since then, his mentality and focus on relationships have not changed. At the end of the day, it’s all about relationship building, and that can be a major blindspot for a lot of leaders in our industry.

Technology is a Powerful Tool

Technology is a powerful tool for growing your real estate business, but it should be a supplemental part of your strategy. It can be used to build relationships if you approach it the right way. However, many of us often overlook the simple, most effective way to leverage technology. Video has a profound impact on people if the content is genuine and authentic, and 94% of agents aren’t currently using it. This is a huge opportunity to get a competitive edge and connect with your prospects in a new and engaging way. No matter what industry you’re in, people make decisions with emotion. Video is much more effective at creating an emotional appeal than anything else technology has to offer.
