Keynote Speech - Detroit C21 Exclusive | Backstage Pass | Peter Lorimer Vlog

I love Detroit and recently headed to this snowy (while I was there) city in Michigan, where I had the honor of being a keynote speaker for an exclusive brokerage event. I spoke on the most powerful marketing engine today, social media, and how it's still being underutilized.

Whatever your tribe is, you can cater to it. Find what you're interested in, and consistently put out engaging and valuable content related to it. Make this a priority, not something you'll eventually "get to later."

Think about it - as a business, you have the privilege of connecting with others on a meaningful level ALL while increasing your numbers. Don't leave this on the table, friends.

Thanks for being part of the rebellion and for being here ❤️ Pete

#ThrowbackTuesday - Leave The Footprints, Don't Follow Them

MEDIA & MARKETING PANEL C.A.R. 2016  

I was invited to speak at the California Association of Realtors Conference in Long Beach, on the Media and Marketing Panel.   As always I will gladly jump on stage to spout about things I'm passionate about and was honored to do so.

One of the main things I spoke about was what I think the secret to being successful in this business is… One word – YOUTUBE.  Lead, don’t follow and find your own information. 

It's funny stepping out of my bubble to see what the rest of my industry is doing and it's always kinda wild to compare what I'm doing.  It seems that real estate, for the most part, is stuck in the dark ages... but I attempted to shine a light on at least my contribution to the industry in this episode of the Vlog...

Leave the footprints, don’t follow them. 

Thanks for being part of the rebellion

A Day in Detroit - Taking in the Motor City - Backstage Pass Vlog

Backstage Pass – A Day in the Motor City

Today’s Vlog is a bit more fun and a bit less business.  After the conference, I went on an adventure around Detroit to see the sights, and was definitely not disappointed.  First stop, The Heidelberg Project.  This is a somewhat crazy and wonderful outdoor expression of art in the middle of the city.  It has an almost post-apocalyptic feel to it.  I dug the madness of it all.  Next, I saw the murals all around the Eastern Market.  As a lot of you know, I’m a huge fan of street are and this was like nothing I had seen before.  Definitely recommend a visit.  Then onto Russell Street, which was a lovely tribute to creators and to the people of Detroit. 

And lastly, I finished up my excursion riding The People Mover, where I got to see the whole shebang.  What an explosion of creativity.  My kind of place.  I couldn’t have had a better time in a better city.  Thank you Detroit!  Can’t wait to come back next year, when hopefully it’s a tad warmer. 

Thanks for watching and for being part of the rebellion....

Pete Lorimer PODCAST - Full Keynote - How to Become a Rockstar Realtor - Michigan WCR Conference


Full Keynote - How to Become a Rockstar Realtor - Michigan WCR Conference - Real Estate Digital Strategies & Social Media Marketing

So the podcast this week I travel to Detroit to deliver a keynote to a very posh luncheon crowd with the subject matter being "How to be a Rockstar Agent" which I hasten to add a title I did not make up but am very flattered by. Unlike the vlog this is the ENTIRE KEYNOTE, so grab a cup of coffee and pull up a chair as its a long one (but well worth it).

 I drop all the tips & techniques I have used over the years to help me have a successful real estate career and booming brokerage in the saturated and uber-competitive Los Angeles market.

The talk was about shattering some of the traditional methods of real estate and embracing the new. Peeling back the old-fashioned veneer of "Client & Customer" and following the new school of running to your tribe.

For too long, fear of upsetting people has paralyzed our industry ergo making it an ocean of vanilla. When I was a new agent I make a point of smashing any barriers between agent and client to dust. It was one of the best things I ever did professionally, and it has paid me back in spades. 

Thanks so much for watching and for being part of the rebellion.
