How to Build a Team-Oriented Brokerage w/ Matt Curtis

Team Building Podcast

To build successful brokerages, we need to focus on empowering our teams. What is a ‘team-erage’, and how can building one bring us great results? How should we be managing and distributing leads between our team members?

On this episode, Founder of Matt Curtis Real Estate and host of the Double Your Real Estate Sales podcast, Matt Curtis shares how to build a successful team-erage.

Takeaways + Tactics

  • To see great results, consider building a ‘team-erage’. This is a team-oriented brokerage that depends on the value each individual team member brings to the table.
  • A team-erage is most effective when agents are working leads brought in by the brokerage (instead of individuals). While agents should be allowed to work their own spheres, keep this to a minimum by offering plenty of brokerage leads.
  • Motivate team members by distributing leads accordingly. The most attractive lead source is hand raiser leads – give these to the team members who put in the most work.

At the start of this episode, we spoke about the importance of empowering our team members to be the best they can be. We also discussed how to distribute inbound calls and website leads in a team-erage, and spoke about why following up is so important.

We also discussed:

  • How to build client relationships that stand the test of time
  • Providing great service vs. offering clients free gifts
  • How to become a leader people want to grow with
