Man, oh man!!
This past week, I attended not one but TWO of Ron’s events, “Mastering the Phone,” and “How To Structure Your Financial Empire.” They were, in a word, INCREDIBLE!!
At these events, I not only had the pleasure of enjoying what Ron was teaching (which is always awesome), but also meeting several of my stellar students!
I’m proud to say that I had EIGHT students (six current and two former) in attendance, making me the mentor with the most students there…other than the Wolffs, of course. 🙂
So let me quickly share what I learned with you at these events…
Mastering the Phone
This was, without a doubt, a very eye-opening experience for everyone there.
As we all know, mastering the closing call with the seller is the most critical component in the Pretty House/Creative Real Estate Business. When you have this locked down, you’ll be able to do more deals, more often, and make more $$.
A tremendous side benefit is that you become a better communicator, and that helps in everything you do – for the rest of your life. You know that’s a BIG one for me, as we’re always focusing on this, right? 🙂
The consequence for NOT mastering this vital skill is that your results will be terrible. You probably won’t make much $$ or do many deals at all… Which is why YOU must get to be EXCELLENT on the phone NOW! Where else can you make $10k-$20k-$100k+ just by TALKING?? Exactly.
Your Calls Will Produce One of 4 Types of Sellers
CAUTION POINT (Important)!:
Don’t over-negotiate on the closing call. Make sure you get the ‘Big 3’ points answered. Don’t push too hard.
You’re just probing for flexibility and motivation to see if they’re open to terms. You’re not on the phone to negotiate a deal – that’s what going to the house is for!
The ‘Big 3’ Questions to Always Ask:
Whenever you’re on the phone and the seller indicates that they’re open to terms, do the best you can to ask these big four questions:
NOTE: It USED to be known as “The Big 4,” but Ron has since changed it to 3, to exclude asking about the TERM (length of time) until you get to the house…unless the seller brings it up before then.
There’s a LOT more, but those points there will give you a GREAT head-start on things!
There’s way too much to cover in this post/email, and it’s starting to get too long already.
So I Have a Surprise For You!
On the way to the bathroom, I asked Ron if he could share some stuff about the class with you, and he said yes! In fact, he thanked me for reminding him.
Based on my experience at that event, I noticed a little problem: Ron’s scripts came in a little booklet. As the students were going through the practice rounds & using these scripts, virtually everyone was having a tough time flipping pages… “If this… then go to page 8. If that, flip to page 6. Now use the Million Dollar Script. Now go to the Appointment Script on page x…”
So I had a much better idea. It took me a few weeks to get this just right, but I’ve created a VERY powerful way to use the Closing Call Script. I created a Script/Form that takes you through the ENTIRE process of a Closing Call. Click HERE to get access and use it whenever you’re doing a Closing Call with a seller.
And if that’s not enough… Here’s Another Surprise:
Ron also had a couple sessions where he coached people through how to handle the Deal Meeting at a Seller’s house. I thought this was so important that I’m including a link to the video right here. It’s hosted on YouTube, so here you go. Watch my student, Jorge Santana do his thing in Skit #1:
What? You want one more? Ok, I’ve got you covered! Here’s another “Deal Meeting” starring my students Steve & Lynn Kilpatrick (lovely couple from NC) in Skit #2:
These skits show you EXACTLY what to do when you go to a seller’s house, so make sure you watch them and PAY ATTENTION!
Big Shout Out to Those Who Made It There!
These are my students who took the time to make it out and attend these events:
It was truly a pleasure meeting all of you (except for Irina…cuz I already knew her haha).
Hope to see YOU at the next event soon!
