How is being a member going to help me?

  • Many agents face the daily grind of competing not only with other agents but often others within their own company. There is no forum for idea swapping, sharing strategies or professional growth. In fact, the typical agent environment is quite covert and secretive by necessity.
  • Real estate can be a little lonely at times. Because we’re agents, we know what it can be like. It can sometimes feel like we’re lone warriors taking on the world by ourselves. But it doesn’t need to be like that.
  • A big part of our success at Bestagents is that we have created a solid working community of like-minded real estate professionals who not only use the proven ideas and concepts that come as part of their membership but are free to swap ideas with fellow members in a non-competitive (and non-threatening) environment.
  • At Bestagents we focus on the important things that help real estate professionals become more successful and while our support and coaching programs get into secondary issues, our main focus is the essential lead generation strategies that help members win more business than their competitors. Our mission is to make our members more successful as quickly as possible.

Is there a contract period?

  • Yes. New members join for 12 months then memberships continue month to month. The initial 12 month contract period is when much of the setting up work for a new member is undertaken. New members have a wide range of support materials to install during this time.
  • An initial 12 month contract term also helps us qualify the ideal member. As our mission is to support, promote and endorse Bestagents as the ‘Best Agents’ in the postcode, we need to know a new member is genuine and serious about their success and using the Bestagents brand, concepts and systems to grow their business.
  • However, if you decide to move locations and can no longer service your chosen postcode and your new code is not available, you can terminate your membership and only be charged a penalty exit equal to 3 months membership where a member terminates after 30 days from joining and before the end of the 12 initial membership commitment. This exit is also available if you decide to leave the industry or there are other special circumstances. For more information please email our support team here.

How do I secure my postcode?

After selecting your membership package, you’ll be invited to select your exclusive postcode or codes.

Do I get a trial?

Yes! New memberships come with a 30 day, all money back guarantee. If you’re not convinced your Bestagents membership is going to be genuinely beneficial to your income and career then simply return all materials sent in original condition within the first 30 days of your membership and receive a 100% refund.

How much extra business can I expect in the first three months?

  • How much would you like? Your success in the first 90 days will be a direct result of the actions you take from day one.
  • Bestagents is about innovative marketing and most members join because they have experienced limited or disappointing results from marketing they have tried in the past and are ready to work with something proven and exclusive.
  • Bestagents is also a ‘system’. We find that new members who take the time to install the system correctly into their business will experience more results faster.

Am I co-branding?

Our mission with the use of Bestagents graphics is to promote and endorse members in their areas. Using the Bestagents logo is optional. The members graphic can ‘stand-alone’ in some marketing or work in conjunction with the member’s principal brand in others. Essentially, this is the member’s choice to make based on guidelines and rules as set out by the master brand.

What systems are offered with my membership?

  • Bestagents members get a complete system of lead generation and follow up documents, scripts, message templates and strategies.
  • Our main observation of real estate’s best agents, simply tells us the more contacts they are able to collect and the better they can communicate with them, the greater success they will enjoy (Yes, we know this is obvious but you might be surprised to learn that most agents ignore it!).

How do I get a customised free book lead generating website?

If you are a pro or team member, we show you everything you need to know from choosing your best domain name to growing your list of subscribers. We actually build the page for you and load in all your messages that are automatically sent to new contacts that sign up to get your eBook. Your free eBook offer is clearly presented and name and email harvesting from free book requests is completely automated. This is the most advanced online lead generation that has ever been developed for the real estate industry.

You will be required to sign up for a MailChimp.com account so we can build the automatic email campaign. This is less than $20,

Is coaching and training on-going?

  • Yes. In addition to our regular webinars, we are regularly in touch about a wide range of topics all designed to make your transition to membership as easy and effortless as possible.
  • In most cases, Webinars and other coaching and support initiatives are recorded and uploaded to the Members Lounge so you can access at any time.

Can two people share a package?

Yes. Many real estate professionals prefer to work as a team of two as they both bring different skill sets to the table. We have setup the PRO membership level for exactly this reason. Check out your membership options here.

The questions most asked about Bestagents:

How do members use the free book offer as a lead generator?

  • Here’s a little real estate fact I bet you already know… The most valuable ‘currency’ in the world of real estate is listings. Without listings any agent will struggle. The reason 15,000 agents leave the industry each year is because they don’t have enough listings.
  • 95% of the income in real estate is made by 5% of agents, because the elite 5% that make all the money are great listers.
  • So why are they great listers? They are great listers because their listing pipeline is always full. They never need to door knock or cold call or run off thousands of ‘Free Appraisal’ letters to owners or beg because they always have a steady flow of new listings coming through their pipeline.

So why do they always have a steady flow of new listings coming through their pipeline? Three reasons:

  • Reason 1 – They have high quality multiple lead generation methods going on all the time.
  • Reason 2 – They ‘own’ a compelling point of difference in their market place and stand out from the crowd. When it comes to effective marketing, there is ‘daylight’ between these ‘top 5%’ agents and EVERY other agent.
  • Reason 3 – They are not only awesome at attracting future sellers they are even better at looking after them and keeping in touch.

You might be interested to know that many agents in the 5% club are Bestagents members. They understand the essentials of give-to-get-marketing and know how to use their free book offer to not only generate new business leads but also to reach out to past clients.

They know that giving something instead of asking for something is a far more productive way to build lasting business relationships and a solid listing pipeline and referral base.

What’s your USP (Unique Selling Proposition)

  • So what’s your dynamic and compelling point of difference? Why are sellers seeking you out? What’s your Unique Selling Proposition?
  • Most agents think they have one, but they don’t and most sellers see most agents as all the same because most agents market themselves the same way.
  • And most agents do this because:
    a. It’s what they’ve always done;
    b. They see other agents doing it and thinks it works or;
    c. They just don’t know any better but know they have to do ‘something’ to get listings.
  • So, consider this hypothetical question; You’re sitting at the seller’s kitchen table delivering your listing presentation and the seller asks you a question. “So tell me Jessica, how are you different to all the other agents? What do you have that they don’t and why should I hire you to be my agent?”
  • So, Jessica sits for a moment and in the next few seconds some answer options run through her head. She thinks to herself: What can I say that will blow my seller away? I could tell him I’m really honest and I work hard (Yup… the last guy probably said that). I could say I’m with a great company and a national brand (really? Who isn’t), or I could say I have buyers ready to go (last guy probably said that too!)
  • Then she suddenly recalls her Bestagents training and what she learned from reading the book. She begins: “Well Mr and Mrs Jones, one of the things I love about real estate is that it has no recommended retail price. I believe the price of every property can be influenced by three things: One, the way a home is presented to the public, two, marketing and three, the skill and advice of the selling agent.
  • I also believe every property seller wants three things: A top market sale price, a reasonable selling time and a great real estate experience.
  • You just asked me why you should hire me… I believe you should hire me because I can deliver on those three important seller requirements better than any other agent and let me share with you why:
  • I’m trained to help my sellers present their property in such a way that will maximize buyer attention and encourage more inspections. This helps me achieve the highest possible price for my sellers. I understand marketing and I understand how to make buyers compete to buy a property.
  • If you appoint me to help you sell your home I will show you exactly how I do it. Are you ready to let me show you how it works?”
