Speaking at Gary Vee's Agent 2021 / Pete Lorimer Vlog

I recently attended and spoke at Gary Vee's Agent2021 conference in Miami. Now, I try to make it to several conferences a year--and this one was different. And I'm not just saying that because I sat on the stage.

After waking up at 2 am (😴) and making my way to Miami, I was full of adrenaline and excitement. The conference took place at the Dolphin Stadium in Miami-- where Gary, his business partner Matt Higgins (you may recognize him from Shark Tank), myself and some amazing professionals in this industry during the day took the stage.

The whole deal was about personal branding, real estate, and social media. I got the chance to chat with some fellow real estate pros and give them my two cents. I made copious notes and have been and will continue to share them with you all.

Friends, taking time out of your crazy schedule to make it to some conferences like this is HUGE. You HAVE to invest in yourself and your professional development if you want to take this seriously.

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

Authentic & Genuine Conversations - Vlog - Backstage Pass

Authentic & Genuine Conversations - Vlog - Backstage Pass  

Business for so long has been predicated on selling, but times have changed.  It’s not just about the houses anymore.  It’s about you!  I’m a big believer that the key to being successful in this business is achieved by having genuine conversations with like-minded people.  The amazing byproduct of these sincere conversations is trust.  AND when people trust you they want to work with you.   

In this video, which was shot last year, this was the first time I spoke at the famed Skirball Center in Bel Air which after this performance has become a regular speaking gig for me. This pitch focuses on the strategy of "Not Giving a F@#K" about opinions and chatter and keeping our heads firmly in the game of being authentic and genuine. I want to thank the Master himself Mr. Steve Shull for having me speak at Skirball this time and many afterward.

I also want to thank you all for watching and for me the secret of "making a connection" is to Stir emotions with authenticity. 

Thanks for being part of the rebellion...

The Answer Is The Story - A tid bit from ‘The First American Title Conference’ in Santa Barbara

If you want to blend in get lost… because I want to stand out.  This is how you break away from the pack, get heard and become successful.

Technology and Social Media are two different things.  Technology is not the answer.  The answer is always the same and has been forever…  It’s THE STORY.  Technology is simply the way it’s delivered.  If the message isn’t there, then who cares?  I certainly don’t.  It doesn’t matter if you market on 100 different platforms, get all the latest apps to reach the most people, etc. 

If there is no story or great message, none of it means anything!

Man vs Machine - Big Data & Where It's Going in Real Estate - Monday Mantra Motivational

Man vs Machine - Big Data & Where It's Going in Real Estate - Monday Mantra Motivational

Big Data is pervasive in all industries, I have always been someone who embraces change, so I’m a fan of the recent surge of data driven applications, but there is a dark side and it’s important to not get lost in it… 

So, let’s get to it.  Information about real estate is now available to ALL people.  There is a tidal wave of it (Remine, Property Radar, Inman, etc).  People can find it ALL on their own.  So, where does that leave us?  Will we (Man) be obsolete in real estate?  The answer is, YES, BUT it will ONLY replace us if we sit back and let it.  If we look at Big Data as a tool that can help us provide extra service to our clients, it will only help us.

When everyone runs in one direction, I tend to run in the other.  You need to embrace the change with the machine that is Big Data and spin it to your advantage.  Old school is the New School.  The most important thing you can do is form genuine relationships and keep them.  What it comes down to is, PEOPLE CARE ABOUT PEOPLE and will always choose them over a machine.  Be that person your client wants.

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.
