146: 5 Lessons For Success From Cara


Cara is an amazing Realtor and a great example others can learn from. Here are 5 lessons from Cara:

• Communicate well and create great relationships.

This applies to your clients and to other agents. There are so many bad Realtors out there that if you’re good, you will succeed. There’s enough work out there for everyone.

• Keep learning and growing constantly.

This involves listening to others and asking questions. When I’ve said certain things on my show that Cara hasn’t tried yet, she messages me to learn more about it. If something goes wrong in a transaction, Cara is asking, “Okay, how can I learn from this? How do I make this experience better for the next person?”

• Ask for help.

I’m not great at asking for help, and I’ve learned so much from watching Cara do that. Be willing to ask for help when you need it. No one knows everything, and no one can do it alone. So ask for help when you need it.

• Apply what you’re learning.

Take the advice you receive, and run with it. Many Realtors ask me for advice, but most say, “No, I can’t do that.” Cara, on the other hand, is humble and finds a way.

She didn’t have social media profiles early on. I suggested she start some and advised her on how to grow her business with social media. When I told her about Sean Cochran, the Cowboy Realtor, she took that advice and ran with it. Like everyone else, she didn’t like being on camera, but unlike everyone else, she did it. She now has at least 1,200 followers on TikTok (and her following is growing). She can now go live on TikTok! She has far outpaced me there.

Any time I invest in Cara, I know she’s going to apply it. I am so impressed with Cara and proud of her for everything she’s done and keeps doing.

You all can do the same thing. Start with one of these lessons, and apply it in your business to help you create more and more success. Let me know how it goes!
