How To Brand Yourself an Expert & Build a Six-Figure Real Estate Business

How To Brand Yourself an Expert and Build a Six-Figure Real Estate Business

It's not very often that I get to Host an event with a TV Celebrity Star, in fact I can honestly say that I never have.  So if you sense a bit of excitement from me in this post, or a tad of elation here, well then Gosh Darn-it, it's because I am TOTALLY STOKED about sharing this announcement!!  I'm truly honored to share a very special guest we have coming to ActiveRain and ARU this week.  Now I must admit right out the gate, I have watched the program in the past, but was never really a fan until these last couple of seasons where I actually knew some of the people who were on the show or interviewing and auditioning to "Get Hired!"

This Thursday I am so excited to announce that we have Kendra Todd coming to ARU. The Winner of NBC's hit series "The Apprentice" with Donald Trump as the host, who has pretty much coined the phrase, "YOU'RE FIRED!"  Well not for Kendra, she was all but fired, she was announced the WINNER of the entire show and the first female to ever do it!  What better person than Kendra to come talk, teach, and share How to brand yourself and expert and build a six-figure Real Estate Business?

I had the pleasure of meeting Kendra in person as one of our guests at RainCamp Bellingham, WA.  She's a very intelligent and classy lady who really knows her stuff.  Folks, you need to be at this one for sure, if for no other reason than to find out how this lady's clock ticks.  The Real Estate Business can be somewhat brutal at times, so what does it take to be a "WINNER" while surrounded with pressure and stress?  Can you imagine having to sit in front of Donald Trump and be subject to his demeanor and ridicule?  If anyone can survive that, no wait...WIN that, then there is NOTHING you can't accomplish in this business and in life.

(get all the details of our topic and discussion here)

Do You Have What It Takes?  Do You Want To Learn What It Takes?  This is a one-time offer that you better set aside some time for, it's not everyday we have a TV Celebrity in our midst at ActiveRain University.  I can hardly wait to hear what she's going to be sharing with us, no matter what, I guarantee it will be awesome.  This one will be a full class so RSVP early if you want to ensure your FREE "virtual" seat at ARU's campus. 

Kendra, we welcome you and Thank You for taking the time to join us this week!  :-)

Brad, you are doing a great job keeping the spot light firmly planted on this real estate blog platform, it would be easy to sit back and let things run there course. It is much harder keeping on top of the newest coming attractions...thanks for being one of the front men for our overall benefit.

Pretty neat stuff.  How do I get on the show?  It could sky rocket the career for the right person.  The strong will survive this down market. Find your niche.  Have more than one and use it for leverage.

I have signed up for Kendra's webinar and I cannot wait :-)  In the meanwhile, I wrote a follow up post today, based on what I learned in Brad's webinar from today...what happened when I implemented the knowledge on my own blog (can you say "Google Loves Me"? ;-) can read it here:

Real Estate Virtual Assistant Series "Drowning Out Complacency" - Part Three - The After Party!

Posted by Christine Wade - Real Estate Virtual Assistant, Proud to Serve Your Real Estate Support Needs (Christine Wade) over 10 years ago

That was great Brad!  Thanks for bringing that wonderful video clip!  I loved it!  And that's really how I think of myself.  I think of myself as an entrepreneur versus just being a real estate agent.  And oh by the way, I sell real estate.  Nice to know I'm right on track with what Kendra said!  = )

WOW!  This class is getting full quickly, but there's still a few "virtual" seats left.  I think this one just might SELLOUT!!  If you register today, there's a great chance you'll still get in.  Thanks everyone for supporting ARU and especially this specific webinar, it will be well worth your time and efforts.

Posted by Scott Haynes (Century 21 Sweyer & Associates) over 10 years ago

Looking forward to an interesting and fun session!  I've always admired Kendra for taking her experiences all the way to the bank!  She was a success before The Apprentice in her own right, and has been working the magic ever since. 

Gotta say, I saw this class listed on the first day I joined ActiveRain, and was pretty impressed!  Thought I just joined a pretty posh group of real estate professionals, and still do. :)

Brad, I just learned about this now (after the fact). Is there another opportunity to view the webinar?
Posted by Jeana Cowie, Broker Associate, ABR, CRS, GRI, SRES (RE/MAX Real Estate Limited) over 10 years ago

Jeana - you're not too late, it's not after the fact.  This "special edition" class is today at 10:00am (PDT) which is still an 1 1/2 hours away.  You still have time to register and join us.  I hope you will, but hurry, the class is almost full as of 8:30 this morning.  :-))

Oh man, I was glad to see that last post Brad! I thought I had missed it. I had 10am eastern on my calendar and had gotten tied up this morning! See ya there at 1:00pm eastern!! :-))

I didn't realize that Kendra was going to be at the Bellingham RainCamp. I would have made the 5 minute drive across town if I knew that she was going to be there. I just couldn't bring myself to listen to KW fodder for 8 hours.

Posted by Ryan Martin, Bellingham Commercial RE Broker (Windermere Real Estate / Whatcom Inc.) over 10 years ago

Kendra Todd? I guess it's time for me to tune in to a webinar.

Posted by Mark R. Westpfahl REALTOR Broker, e-PRO® CNE® REALTOR® Minnesota Real Estate Broker (Vexillum Realty - Eagan, St. Paul, Minneapolis and suburbs) over 10 years ago

Hey Ryan - just for the record, RainCamps have nothing to do with KW Fodder, you might want to check out if you want to get a really good sense and some testimonies of what RainCamp is REALLY all about.  I'm also assuming your comment means we'll be seeing you today at ARU??  Thanks buddy!   :-))

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 10 years ago

@Brad ~ The "KW Fodder" comment comes from B.K. being the main speaker :) I actually got the Bellingham RainCamp lowdown from Jon's cousin Rob.

What an awesome class today!! Based on your surveys, comments, and the dozens of emails I'm receiving...  I promise to make every effort to have Kendra back again and very soon.  She's a very classy, intelligent, and motivational lady and we were honored to have her teaching and sharing her "tips and secrets to success" with us today.  I'm still floating in the clouds from this one!! 

Yes Mara - Loved the {{{squeeze page}}} I may need to write a blog post about that one for sure....    :-))

Hey Fred - send me an email and I'll get you the information she was sharing in today's class. Thanks for taking time to join us, it was one of the best attended FREE Class webinars ARU has ever put on.  The registrations, attendees, and responses were beyond overwhelming!!  lol~

Posted by Deb Harshman, REALTOR & ASPMaster Stager, The Selling Advantage (Long and Foster - Christie's International Real Estate & Owner of Staged Home Decor) over 10 years ago

These webinars are nice but it's too bad they're not recorded for later access.  Frankly as a busy real estate agent, I'm out WORKING during the day and am often away from my computer. Missed out on some good Tomato university classes too...because, damn, I had a walk through and closing to attend.

I might as well give up - every time I've tried to attend these things, CLIENTS NEEDS have interfered.



Posted by Karen Rice, Northeast PA & Lake Wallenpaupack Home Sales (Davis R. Chant, REALTORS) over 10 years ago

Susan--I share your dilemma but, after all, that's why we're all here--to learn how to build our businesses so that we're OUT with clients during the day!  One thing is for certain, I'm blessed and thankful to be out with clients and wouldn't have it any other way.

Brad--I too, missed this!  Is there any way to get a copy of the video?  I'm missing many of the best ones you're putting on and just hate to have missed this one, for sure!
