On this week’s episode of The Walk Thru, two OGs, Dan O’Neil and Tom Toole, join Byron Lazine and The Broke Agent to discuss where the 2023 housing market is headed—and why it’s critical for agents to know how to articulate what’s happening locally as well as nationally.
Next up was news from The Real Deal on the Ecklund-Gomes team, specifically their new five-year contract with Douglas Elliman.
For topic #3, The Broke Agent revealed the biggest holiday marketing fails—as well as some winning strategies for keeping in touch with your fellow agents and your sphere of influence.
Finally, Tom Toole finishes the episode with a live FSBO call that results in an appointment with the owner. Byron debriefs the call with four big takeaways for every agent (especially those who doubt the efficacy of using scripts). Tom demonstrates precisely how it’s done.
