Randy Dyck from High Growth Life discusses the upcoming Realtor Collective event on October 27 in Burnaby, BC, which is focused around future-proofing your business. Randy Dyck has been in the real estate field for 30 years, in ownership, sales, investing, and client care capacities. The following article draws on a recent interview with Randy Dyck.
As a REALTOR, you are probably already experiencing the “headwinds,” and if you haven’t yet, you will soon as they gather momentum and strength. The housing marketplace is definitely shifting and it will be a more challenging marketplace as we move forward.
The purpose of the upcoming Realtor Collective Event, Surviving in a Shifting Market: Future-proofing Your Business, is for REALTORS to discuss and find survival strategies and solutions that will help agents adjust to all that is happening in the market today. The event is particularly relevant — and useful for REALTORS — because it brings together agents from all walks of life, from all different brokerages, to talk about this new marketplace, to put our heads together and discuss how we can be better together.
What Can Attendees Expect?
The Realtor Collective events are effective because of their collaborative environment, where agents share their best practices and their best tips. This is exactly what we need right now as we confront the shifting marketplace, so we can ride the storm and come out on top. With interest rates rising and sales volumes dropping, how do we, as agents, succeed?
Attendees will hear from a number of top producers, top leaders and top team leaders, who will be sharing what they are doing to adjust in this market; how they are going to help their team be successful. It is a collaborative approach, where everybody comes together as a collective group — whether you’re from Coldwell Banker, ReMax, Sutton, Whole Life, or wherever — we come together to learn from one another.
What Are Some of the Key Takeaways for Attendees?
Attendees will go away with strategies they can apply today to make their business better right away and on into the future.
REALTOR panels composed of team leaders, members of teams and individual agents will discuss questions that are concerning agents right now. Questions such as: Do you choose to run the race on your own, or do you choose to build a team around you or do you choose to join a team? What is best for you? How do you pick and choose if you are new, or struggling? The panel discussions will provide some great takeaways for agents, helping them decide where they fit in best in this new marketplace.
There will also be a panel of top producers sharing what they are doing today in the marketplace to be better and to succeed in this marketplace. Agents are sure to hear strategies that they can apply in their own business.
On top of the panel discussions, the event is hosting a number of keynote speakers. Ty Corsie, one of British Columbia’s most followed Real Estate Agents on social media, will share how he closed 40 deals last year through his social media efforts. Many agents are on social media, but are they using it the right way to convert those leads into actual sales? We will learn how Ty achieves his success.
Scott Brown, the CEO at Fifth Avenue Real Estate is another keynote speaker who will be sharing how projects are surviving or succeeding in this new marketplace. Fifth Avenue Real Estate has thousands of units on the market through presales as well as ongoing sales for developers in the Lower Mainland, Vancouver, Interior/Kelowna area. Scott will share his perspective on where we are going in the marketplace with developments.
Agents may think they don’t need to attend an event like this. They may think they have a good plan in place, but the “how” to get through a shifting marketplace isn’t actually as important as the “who” you know — who you need to be with, who you need to surround yourself with or who you need to hire. This is what this event is about. The who’s who of real estate will be there. At this time of uncertainty, agents need to be surrounded by the right people, the thought leaders of real estate, the ones who have been through this before and have sound and sometimes unexpected ideas about how to get through it again.
The Surviving in a Shifting Market: Future-proofing Your Business event will be well worth the 4 hours. Of course there will also be networking afterwards — it is all about sharing ideas, connecting and collaborating.
The event is free, but we suggest you register early to reserve a seat.
