Glenn’s Perspective #1: T3Summit

Perspective

Last week I had an opportunity to go to the T3Summit in Las Vegas hosted by Stefan Swanepoel. It was an amazing event with some absolutely Amazing presenters.

The first Keynote was by a gentleman named Darren Hardy who is the Publisher of Success Magazine. To say he shifted my direction over the last week and a half would be an understatement, however I really give credit to Stefan in putting together a who’s who of the industry to help shape the direction of those who are leading real estate organizations into the future. Some of the individuals who we had an opportunity to listen to and learn from included the CEO of HomeServices of America, the CEO of Coldwell Banker and my personal favorite was Mark Willis, CEO of Keller Williams.

This last week I put in place a number of new habits which I intend use to stay on track with a number of goals which I think are important to our collective success.

I read the above quote this morning… It’s a Jim Rohn quote. I was led to Jim Rohn as there are a number of people who have quoted him over the years and sighted him as one of their mentors. Darren Hardy quotes him liberally in a audio book I’m currently listening to called, The Compound Effect.

The quote that resonated with me the most this morning is this:

Formal Education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune. – Jim Rohn

I think the reality is that I personally believe we are all our own personal science experiments. We are pushing the buttons of life to see what happens. We also have self imposed pain tolerances… Those pain tolerances determine to some extent the amount of risk (emotionally, financially, spiritually) that we are willing endure to determine what is real for us, however the reality is that I think we all know that most of what “we desire” (we are goal seeking creatures – so we all desire something) lies just outside our comfort zone. Our comfort zone is for all intents and purposes defined by our education to this point of our life, whether formally or even informal (personal observations and experimentation’s)…

My personal opinion is that the most important self-education that any of us will work on is our Leadership Education… Keep in mind that Leadership is like riding a bike. Reading about Leadership won’t make you a leader just as reading about riding a bike won’t make you a great bike rider… However the business we are in IMHO is working on you (me in my case)… If you do you will attract the types of people who are looking for the leadership that you provide and your business will grow accordingly…

Broker Kerry Thornhill Takes Over eXp Realty in Texas

BELLINGHAM, WA – eXp Realty is pleased to announce that Kerry Thornhill is heading up the expansion and growth of eXp Realty in the state of Texas, with headquarters in Dallas.

“I saw an outstanding opportunity for Texas agents to get on the ground floor of a national brokerage that’s on the cutting edge of technology and change in our industry,” says Thornhill. “This will be the best decision that some real estate professionals will make in their careers.”

A broker in the DFW area since 2007, Thornhill first heard of eXp Realty through Suzanne Fuqua, eXp Arizona broker. While he was considering becoming a managing broker for North Texas, the opportunity came up to guide the state and Thornhill jumped at the chance.

A self-proclaimed techie, eXp Realty has proven to be a great fit. “I believe eXp’s cloud based brokerage model is the future of real estate,” says Thornhill. Recruiting for like-minded agents will begin in the Dallas area and then spread outward to other regions of the state, each having its own managing broker.

eXp Realty Celebrates Three Years of Innovation

BELLINGHAM, WA – This month, eXp Realty is celebrating its third anniversary by welcoming its 28th state broker, Guy Allen, who will head up the eXp office in Washington, DC.

Launched in 2009, eXp Realty is a fast-growing, international real estate brokerage that is using rapid advances in technology to aggressively grow and keep costs of running a brokerage low while most other firms are struggling just to survive in what is thought of as one of the toughest markets in which to operate.

“It’s been awesome to watch eXp become a place where top real estate professionals come together daily to collaborate on solutions to real time industry challenges,” says Brian Culhane, Co-Founder and Chief Cultural Officer of eXp Realty.

A unique combination of innovative technologies, a highly competitive financial split and what is currently the most aggressive revenue share model in the industry resulted in eXp Realty being chosen as one of the most Innovative Brokerages by Inman News in 2011. Founder and CEO, Glenn Sanford was also recognized that year as one of the Top 100 Most Influential People in the Real Estate Industry by the same publication.

“It’s amazing how starting with the simple concept of keeping costs low and engagement high has resulted in eXp Realty being recognized year after year as one of the industry’s most innovative companies,” says CEO Glenn Sanford.

“eXp aims to be a completely paperless brokerage and HelloFax has helped become part of that system. It only makes sense in these days of technology not to have to print, sign and then either scan it back in or put a piece of paper into a fax machine. HelloFax will be the demise of the fax machine, may it rest in peace,” says Kirk Johnson, IT and SEO Manager for eXp Realty.

HelloFax is equally excited about the partnership. “eXp Realty is on the forefront of the virtual, paperless office,” says Joel Andren. “We have built our online faxing and eSignature tools for forward thinking offices like eXp.”
