The book opens with us joining a REALTOR® circa 2010 who has been struggling with sales since the meltdown of 2008-2009. He's been invited to lunch to meet with a mortgage lender. He debates even going, but figures he might as well get a free lunch.
He meets with the most charming mortgage lender who seems to know every little detail about the staff in the restaurant from the hostess, to the server, to other patrons. She has lunch with our struggling REALTOR® and later asks him to attend an event that she thinks he may benefit from after hearing that he's been struggling.
Our struggling REALTOR® reluctantly attends the event which turns out to be one of those Tony Robbins-type of motivational events with a pitch at the end of hiring a coach. Our struggling REALTOR® is impressed when his mortgage lender friend from lunch is called up on the stage to provide a testimonial and he ultimately decides to hire a coach.
The rest of the book takes us step by step through a coaching program with our struggling REALTOR®. We learn about building personal relationships and the virtue of being servant-minded in approach. We learn about mining our database, grading our prospects, and remembering how to ask for the business.
We learn about the seven levels of communication structured as a pyramid with the highest level being face-to-face or what I like to call belly-to-belly communication. This is what it's all about in building personal relationships. People want to work with people who they know, like, and trust and what better way to do this than going belly-to-belly.
We watch an incredible transformation of our struggling REALTOR® into a confident person who starts putting others first and in doing so he finds himself again and regains the success he had prior to the real estate meltdown.
I picked this book up at the perfect time as we head into what is going to be a record year in real estate. It's a great reminder of what real estate professionals need to be doing to achieve success. It's a great reminder that it's all about "them" and not about "you." This book is a must-read for any REALTOR®, mortgage lender, or any other real estate professional. I highly recommend this one for any sales professional for that matter.
With all that aside, this book is still fantastic and incredibly relevant to business professionals of all sorts. I am moving into Real Estate and this book will be my GO TO strategy for my business. I was already selling like this back when I was a sales consultant for artificial turf. But I wasn't doing it at the level explained in the book that is loaded with genius tactics, acronyms, strategies, and more. I think I could write a book on how great this book is.
My biggest love for the book is the catchphrase that I am not officially adopting to rid myself of procrastination forever. "Do It Now." I am definitely going to purchase the Do It Now wristband to remind myself that life waits for nobody. Whatever it takes to be successful, whatever needs to get done to accomplish my goals, I need to "Do it now."
I am interested in the products that they have for sale on the website. The 7 Levels action guide to the book is $500! Currently, that seems a bit steep for me. But given that the information in the $10 book version on Kindle could literally make my 6 figures in Real Estate I am pretty sure the action plan is worth the money. They don't do a great job in selling it though.
I read 7L in 2012, 2014 and then again 2 weeks ago. What happened to me reading it in '13, '15 and '16? (I'm asking myself).
The more I network, the more I build my business (I came back into the field in 2011 after 17 years of management), the more depth I find in I Michael's teachings.
Every time I come back to it, I realize how I use some of his techniques and find new ones to stop-wasting-handshakes.
