On this 260th episode of the Massive Agent Podcast, we’re talking with Kevin Kauffman, a real estate OG and team leader. He also co-hosts The Kevin and Fred Show with Fred Weaver.
Kevin and Fred are founders of the Next Level Agents group and run a large real estate team called 46:10, which covers multiple states and cities. Right now, they’re shrinking that team and looking for ways to streamline it.
Today, we talk about why some agents will never succeed in real estate and why others will. Kevin reveals what he learned while he was part of Gary Keller’s inner circle and what it means for newer agents looking to expand into a new market or build a team.
We also break down why it’s so important to attend your company’s conferences, why so many people’s actions (and calendars) don’t match their stated priorities, and what short-timers in the industry have in common.
The format of this episode is more of a conversation than an interview, but it’s packed with revelations and insights you’ll be thinking about for days. Don’t miss it.
