Behind the Shine 4/26/24

    Facing a non-functional lockbox, burst pipes, no water, and a power outage might seem like a disaster for a guest stay. However, with the right approach, despite these challenges that inevitably arise you can still provide a five star experience. During a recent 3-day stay, we encountered all these issues, yet our proactive response led to a glowing feedback

    Running a profitable STR is highly dependent upon good online reviews. Effective communication and issue resolution are crucial to achieve these. Guests often just want to feel heard, and this takes time. Our swift and responsive boots on the ground team ensured a positive experience. By promptly addressing the issues, keeping guests informed, and demonstrating our commitment to resolving them, we maintained a positive guest experience, which still led to a five-star review. This doesn’t happen when you’re looking for “passive income”, it’s only possible when you’re passionate about excellence in real estate. If you’re having trouble offering this type of five-star service, reach out to to see how we can help!

    Investing in 2024 is not the same as it has been in the last few years. A lot of people have decided to throw in the towel because of the difficulties we’ve been seeing recently. Between rising interest rates, inflation, limited supply, and an overall struggling economy investing is not for the faint of heart. If this sounds like what you’ve been feeling check out Spartan League. Our members rise to the occasion and do not shy away from difficult markets. They run towards it instead of away from it. If you’re interested in learning how you can join our community of Spartans and continue on the path towards building a financial fortress in this economy, join us on May 17th where I’ll explain what’s different and how to adapt. You can also email to get connected. (insert david video)

    The California Fair Plan, a state-mandated insurance pool serving as the insurer of last resort for homeowners unable to get coverage elsewhere, is warning that a major disaster like a severe earthquake or wildfire could exhaust its funds. The plan, which provides basic coverage for fire and other perils, has seen a significant increase in policyholders in recent years due to wildfires and insurance companies pulling back from high-risk areas. This surge in policies has raised concerns about the Fair Plan’s ability to handle a large-scale disaster, potentially leaving policyholders and the state at risk. Learn more about this HERE.

    We started Week 0 with everyone taking their DISC profile and learning about their personality styles, and discussing how to use those strengths and weaknesses to their advantage in their agent businesses. Our students also received training in confidently negotiating with other agents and using the “Likeability/Firmness” walls to negotiate for their clients. After our first week (orientation) one of our students, Lisa, was able to secure a listing against more experienced agents using a single piece of advice we provided on the first call. While Lisa is definitely a smart agent who presented herself well, she credited the strategy we use on the David Greene Team to save our sellers money during escrow as to why the seller chose her over the agents. Lisa has already 15x’d her return on the course, and it hasn’t even started yet. Here’s to many more escrows to come!🏆
