My point is real estate is not a single strategy vertical. You need to do what works for YOU and YOUR BUSINESS. Not just blindly follow what works for agent X. Or agent ZY. Or agent Q. Yes, watch and learn from them — but adapt that to your strengths and weaknesses to form your own unique strategy. Remember, the only unique thing you have is YOU.
At the end of the day, the important thing is to have a strategy and execute against it.
Oh yea, one last thing — don’t be lazy.
