It is not called ‘Average Agent Camp’

“This is not Average Agent Camp. This is Mega Agent Camp!” proclaimed Gary Keller at this year’s Keller Williams Realty Mega Agent Camp in Austin, Texas.  In his cut and dry style he told the audience, “It takes no more hours in the day to be stupid as it does to be smart”. For the 12,000 participants that attended this year’s Mega Camp, the information shared will spark new practices and fuel production of some of the most highly profitable businesses in the country.

Real estate is no longer a job for retired school teachers who just want to show homes. Real estate, as a business, is probably one of the least expensive, big money return, small business opportunities that is available to almost anyone. And the “anyones” are business minded, tech-savvy, entrepreneurs who are producing sales volumes that have never been seen before. Gary said it best by stating, “It is not about being a real estate agent. It is about being a Business Agent”.

The head-turners of the industry know you must have a plan to become better. There are many great Realtors out there that are not performing to their potential. The average agent who is not striving to become better, will find themselves falling behind and blaming the market. Rich Cazneaux, from Sacramento, stated it best in the latest KW Outfront Magazine, “I loved my previous broker and the brand. I was happy but I had reached a production ceiling that I couldn’t break on my own.” Rich attended Mega Camp and heard Gary Keller tell the crowd, “You are a business owner, not a real estate agent, and that means you need to act like a business.” This made Rich look deeper into Keller Williams.

If you are a real estate agent wanting to break through your ceiling to the next level of achievement, look into the systems, tools, training and education Keller Williams has to offer.
