Simon Says....Be Careful Who You Follow

Real Estate Broker with Missy Caulk TEAM

Simon says, flickr photo credit When I was growing,one of my favorite games at night was playing Simon Says...

My grandparents had a lake house on Ky.Lake which we spent a lot of times at during the summer months. Most of the lake houses around us all had kids from different states that we only saw during the summer.

At night we all loved to play Simon Says...

If you are young and dont' remember the game, one person is Simon and Simon tells you what to do, ie...Simon says jump on one foot, Simon says put your hands on your heads, Simon says do jumping jacks. The next Simon is the one who didn't get eliminated by messing up.It is a game of follow the leader.

So what does this have to do with Real Estate?

Everything and nothing.

With all the Coaches, Top Bloggers, SEO Experts, Social Media guru's out careful which Simon you are following.

There are excellent people you can follow in all these area's of expertise. But, be sure to check out their track record or references.

I like to follow and learn from Realtors that have a good track record, meaning they sell Real Estate and a lot of it. Why would I want to play Simon Says...with someone who blogs a lot, uses Social Media a lot who isn't selling houses.

I want to know that what they are teaching me to do...comes from a good track record or business.

When I was first married, my husband and I bought a game called Simon Says, we use to play in bed at night...silly I know but we had a ton of fun. Simon Says Electric Game

Simon Says is a fun game but be careful who you follow.

Maybe it is just me, but what do you think? QR Code

Oh, absolutely!  I love the site!  Is she thrilled with it or what?!  I see you're using your QR code--are you tracking this at all?  Interesting concept and I'm thinking seriously of adding it to sign toppers for listings.

Take care!  OH, are you coming to Charlotte for RainCamp?  I think I could probably get the place sold out if I let folks know you're coming!  Of course, you'd have to bring your new son-in-law and beautiful daughter too!

This is such an important topic. I watched someone learn from another on AR and then turn around and sell that knowledge to their peers in the form of coaching. Needless to say, it left me feeling quite a bit different about the person. All the coaching material came from AR. When the person started their journey on AR they knew next to nothing. One year later, and no RE Sales, this person calls themselves an expert. The question that runs through my head is this: Expert? At what? Selling knowlege that can be found for free right here on AR?

I'm sorry. The whole thing just ticks me off when I think of it. It just isn't right. What makes matters worse, at least for me, is a paper pusher toting themselves as experts. I'm an expert too when it comes to pushing paper :)

Agreed with TLW above! Rome wasn't built in a day and there are awesome tips here on AR.  I would say that it can all be figured out in due time!

Missy - Great points!  This is one of the primary reasons I spent so many years following Howard Brinton and his Stars of the Month.  I was actually learning from agents who were in the business overcoming the same challenges I was faced with.

Missy this is so true! There are many that never have been in the trenches but try to come across as experts.
