Are You In Real Estate in London Ontario And Want a Change?

   I am looking for real estate talent in London Ontario, (is your’s  hidden?) & I am searching and interviewing for:

  • A salaried licensed inside sales associate with a bonus incentive plan, $36,000 to $50,000 starting salary
  • An administrator who has the skills or the ability to acquire the skills to manage us, this is a salary position with a bonus incentive plan that could be higher than the salary! $48,000 to $60,000 to start plus bonuses.
  • A  buyer’s agent who is not earning $75,000 net income yet
  • We have a health plan that is quite extensive
  • Out training is more about personal development & relationships than pretending you are a Realtor

We Do Not Hire This Type

NOTE: My Principles:

  • I do not believe our clients should have just average results; they should have above average results with respect and care.  Our sales associates, administrative & service associates are above average, and when you give excellent care,  income is above average.  Income rarely exceeds personal development.
  • There is no limit on being better & improving!
  • I do not hire to do a job, I expect associates to grow as a person, to help grow the culture and the company!
  • There are two types of employees and associates,  those who work for a paycheque or those who work for the good of our clients, for the good of the culture and expect to be rewarded accordingly!
  • The choices we make are a reflection of our character & morals.
  • As you can see, I have high standards and if you do too, we are going to get along really well and prosper together

Ty Lacroix Broker of Record

A London Ontario Realtor’s Largest Competitor

A Realtor’s largest competitor, deal breaker & stressor is themselves!

I am not popular in stating the above, I am criticized and have been threatened by others to report me to our licensing board for disparaging remarks about Realtors.

Definition of a Realtor's Competitor

Let me be clear and blunt; I can say this and prove it. I am a Realtor. I am the owner of a very small real estate brokerage in London Ontario; I am also the broker of record which means the buck stops with me, any success or failure starts and ends with me. I am 100% responsible.

My biggest competitor is me, any transactions that were not successful it would be easy to blame the buyer, the seller, the lawyer, the mortgage company, the economy, the weather, the Blue Jays had a losing season, it’s a long weekend or fill in the blanks here.__________________!

That 24 hours a day other person living in your head, do this, do that, continually talking and talking to you. If we had a friend like that we would lose them very quickly.

Being involved in hundred’s of transactions over the years, I have seen, heard and experienced the good and the bad, even the ugly.

So why am I still helping residential buyers and sellers, investors and other Realtors get what they want? I love the challenges and realize that not only am I my most significant competitor, but every person I come into contact with also have that second person inside them as well, their antagonizer! Spouting all the negatives, contradictions, positives and negatives every second.

So, am I perfect, do I have a 7 step program that will instantly change your life? No!

I know for me because I am a work in progress, I have the courage every morning to understand that I am the enemy. That frees me to eliminate ego quickly, that I must work harder, learn more, be more, see more, that any failure is a lesson and at the end of the day when I give 100% and have empathy, I have beaten my largest competitor!

That is called success. That is called freedom to excel!

How Is Your London Ontario Real Estate Career Going?

Success can mean many things when it comes to a London Ontario real estate career, to some it is money, to some is helping others, to some, it is just a job!

Real Estate Done the Right Way

How many describe their London Ontario real estate career that way?

Fact: Most Realtors EITHER: make a lot of money and have no life outside their job, OR have a life outside of real estate but don’t make enough money, OR kill themselves with grueling 80+ hour weeks AND barely make enough money to survive!

What Do You Believe?

  • I’m working as hard as I can

  • I can’t get beyond a certain level of income

  • Real estate consumes me … I have no time for my personal life

Think again • • • the only logical outcome of “working harder” is “burning out”

The only walls that confine you are the ones you’ve built yourself …you are what you think!

What Makes A Realtor in London Ontario Succeed As One?

What makes a Realtor in London Ontario succeed as one, the big difference between a good & a great Realtor is that the successful ones take everything as a welcomed challenge while an ordinary one takes everything either as a blessing or a curse!

The struggle for most ordinary Realtors is caused by that they don’t take enough time to learn about the true role of money(the four roles are income, flow, profit & equity or exit),  how to effectively market themselves or their listings, those are easy enough to learn, it’s just that they spend their time and energy defending what they think they know! Or, as this great poem states:

Spring has passed

Summer has gone

Winter is here

and the song I meant to sing remains unsung

For I have spent my days stringing

and unstringing my instrument.

Joining a real estate company in London today

Great Realtors in London Ontario, the really happy ones, are down to earth, compulsive about detail, are honest with themselves & their clients & their compensation reflects how happy and satisfied their clients are!.

They understand that they must know what goes on in every aspect of their business, the why and the how.

They focus their attention on the multitude of seemingly insignificant, unimportant & boring things that make up every successful transaction & keeping their real estate business profitable & life fulfilling!

Those mundane, little things, done with care & done consistently, form a huge difference from those who are satisfied to just get through, to just get by, to live from commission cheque to commission cheque.

You see, it is those everyday tasks, done right, is just like compound interest & what Albert Einstein called the 8th wonder of the world.

Most Realtors depend on luck, family, the market, their brokerage or the latest fad to get more business, yet, why is it that  93% don’t make it past year one, 80% don’t make it past 5 years and  90% don’t make it after 10 years?

do not take a chance with your real estate career

  HOW SAD & UNNECESSARY! 

You see, your real estate business is nothing more than a reflection of who you are.

  • If your thinking is sloppy, your business will be sloppy!
  • If you are disorganized, your business will be disorganized
  • If you come from a lack of abundance, your business will suffer from lack of abundance. (Give and you will receive.)
  • If you are greedy, your clients will be greedy, your associates  will be greedy, your family will be greedy ( those will be your own thoughts, not others)
  • If the information about what needs to be done is limited, if your research of properties & values is haphazard or limited, your business (income) will reflect that limitation.
  • If you can’t do the little things right, you will never do the big things right

So, if your real estate career and business is to change-as it must continuously to thrive and survive-you must change first. (To change your life, change your thoughts).

If you are unwilling to change, your life and real estate career will never allow you to have the lifestyle, peace of mind or to give you what you and your family want.

The first change that has to take place has to do with your idea of what a real estate career is really like & what it will take to make it rewarding, ( and not doing the same thing over and over & all that old 2010 stuff your brokerage told you to do!).

To have a great career in real estate, once you understand the relationship every Realtor must have with their business to really work for them, your life & business will dramatically change.

Joining the right real estate company in London Ontario

You will see the great opportunities available if you start doing things the right way, with the right understanding & tools.

The role of a Realtor is rapidly changing & you’ll see how you can position yourself to be on top of that change.

Here’s the thing, when you started your real estate career and like all of us, to get your license you took a course on property law, how to write up an offer, how to write up a listing agreement, how to value a property and perhaps another 65% of things you most likely will never use again!

Then, you joined a real estate company that promised to offer you all the training you will ever need to make it (if that were true, why do over 86.7% don’t make it past year 2?) or, you may have learned a few ideas & methods about marketing and “getting your name out there.” Really, whose name?

Your real estate practice is not a job, it is a business.

“Don’t be distracted by criticism. Remember the only taste of success some people have is when they take a bite out of you.

I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YO

If you continue on your present path, if you continue to practice as you are now, hunting­ down business as you are now, attempting to convince  buyers and sellers “of your difference” as you are now, ‘being just a real estate agent’ and destined only to continue- do you have a rational reason to stay in a rut?

A rut is nothing more than a coffin with both ends open!

Can you honestly say your income’s future is certain and secure? Can you see yourself achieving all your goals? – not just money-wise, but life and time-wise too?

Why not get back  the control over your income, and be treated with respect?

Fear of the unknown is strong and holds many people from living their ideal life. You already know how your present business is performing.

Awareness is very powerful. Are you aware that our motto is “Not all Realtors are the same”? Are you aware that my telephone # is 519-435-1600, that my name is Ty Lacroix, I am the Broker of Record & owner & that if the above has you ‘thinking’, call me.

Discretion of course is honoured and the worse that can happen is we say no to each other, so be it, a professional Realtor will hear many no’s in their career, I look at no’s as a lesson, what did I learn and how can I improve?
