Luxury or Regular Real Estate: What's the Difference? | Magic Minute Season 3

Luxury or Regular Real Estate: What's the Difference?

There are some great analogs between luxury and regular real estate. I remember when I crossed the threshold to sell my first 5M house, I was incredibly intimidated. However, I quickly realized that even though it was a bigger and fancier home, it still had four walls, bedrooms, bathrooms, and a kitchen. And once I wrapped my head around that, I really got into it. Sure, there are plenty of differences, too. And you'll get to discover them all on your journey as an agent.

What Does FSBO Mean? | Magic Minute Season 3

What exactly does FSBO mean?? For Sale By Owner. This is a tricky part of real estate. Most FSBOs are people that don't, generally, like real estate agents or they just want to sell their house themselves.

If you're a real estate agent and you're looking for an angle, you can work this, but to be effective, you need to add value. If your strategy is just to walk up to them or call them and try to get their listings - it's going to be rough.

BUT, if you offer to bring them a buyer - the seller, most likely, will value your hard work and might even give you the listing. I've had this happen to me on multiple occasions.

Get creative and be patient.

Got Toxic Clients? - Magic Minute - Season 3

Real estate agents (and other professionals!), we've all been there.

Toxic clients.

Those clients, that, when the phone rings, you get that unpleasant feeling in your belly. What do we do?! Here's how I handle it. I give it two weeks. If, after two weeks, the client and I still aren't jiving, I let 'em go. It can be hard, but let me tell you, getting rid of clients that suck the life out of you frees you up to do good work for others!

Have any of you dealt with this before? Hit me in the comments.

Thanks 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

Aspen Special - Life & Times - The Lorimer Family Vlog

LIFE & TIMES - ASPEN SPECIAL - The Lorimer Family Vlog #FamilyFriday

For #FamilyFriday this week I have brought back a classic vlog. Vlogging, at this point, has become a total addiction to me and this is a 2018 re-edit of the epic video we initially released about a year ago. It was my first real venture into creating a full-on vlog and I have to say I am really pleased with the result. It all takes place in the magical town of Aspen, Colorado and this was the first time any of us had been there. 

We ran the gamete from on the piste to dog sledding to everything in between and the result is a rather epic, over 20-minute, video that really comes from the heart and I hope you enjoy the trip along with us. It truly was the trip of a lifetime and I have to say I fell in love with Aspen and I look forward to the next time I can panic as I ski the top slopes in a wind storm alone again. 

Enjoy the Video on my newly created Peter Lorimer - Life & Times Youtube Channel where I will be dropping all the Life & Times Videos so they can all live all snuggly and happily ever after...

Cheers

Courage is a Love Affair with the Unknown - Monday Mantra

I was in a meeting over the weekend and I heard this phrase "Courage is a love affair with the unknown" and it really, really resonated with me. If everything in life was a dead cert what a boring life this would be. I have always bought massively into the theory that life is all about the journey and not the destination and this phrase perfectly galvanizes the ethos.

In the mantra I cover a great deal of ground talking about strategies, theories and a whole host of other information. Mantra, for me, has become a great way to klick off the week and make sure I slam into it head on with all the gusto I can muster. So strap in, thanks for joining me, you coming along for the ride just means the world an so I thank you for your eyes, your ears and for being part of the rebellion.

Cheers

Pete
