SOOOO I did a thing today. I cut the Zillow Cord. I've been a Zillow Premier agent for the past 4 years. Maintaining the number 1 position in all of the zip codes I cover.
My cost for Zillow averaged around $500 to $1,000 per month. At first the leads were pretty good. I had a good ROI and closed several deals directly from the Zillow leads.
I had heard agents talk about how they didn't like Zillow. About how Zillow was taking our information, getting leads, and then selling those leads back to us. I understood their frustration, but I figured.. it's working for me right now. I was only focused on the "short game" so to speak in my business. Not really thinking of how this could impact my business, and ultimately our industry.

We all know that reading regularly can help us become better people in our lives and business... BUT do we prioritize reading in our schedules?
It's easy to neglect something so fundamental to our success, when we get busy with day to day life.
Let's face it, who has time to read? With our kids schedules, keeping up with the house, cooking and cleaning. Not to mention all the Real Estate stuff! Lead generating, prospecting for buyers and sellers, going on appointments, keeping up with social media. The list could go on and on. It is VERY hard to fit it all in and it's easy to let reading slip down to the bottom of our priority list.
Trust me, I get it! And yet, reading is key to success. Look at any successful person you know. Man or Woman. In Real Estate, or Not. They all have something in common. They all make reading and self development a priority.
In fact self improvement is such a wise use of time, because it can actually SAVE YOU SO MUCH TIME in the long run!
When should you think about hiring your first assistant? This is a question every agent asks when they have had a certain level of success... Many know they should hire, but they are too afraid to take the leap, because there are so many unknowns.
How much should you pay them? What should you have them do? Once you figure this out, where in the world are you going to find someone reliable enough to entrust you clients to them?
