TWO MINUTE TIP
New from Rich Sands Seminars is The Two Minute Tip, videos designed to address the hottest and most relevant topics in real estate today.
There isn’t a time when Rich Sands doesn’t remember leading a class full of students. For fifteen years he brought out the best in high school students. He took that leadership to the real estate industry where he rose to the position of Director of Education, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Colorado and revolutionized the company’s training services for more than 2,000 managers, agents and staff. Now, an experienced international presenter and instructor, Rich specializes in helping sales people master their skills with those they serve, as well as in their own lives. His flagship presentations, “Presentation 2.0,” and “Why Your Grandparents Should Direct Your Marketing” integrate the key practices needed to engage and impress your customers in today's competitive world. Presently, he is President of Rich Sands Seminars and works closely with international franchise systems, independent brokerages, and companies looking for an edge. As a NAR/REBAC and Certified CRS instructor, he conducts dozens of courses each year for the National Association of REALTORS® and Council of Residential Specialists. While the real estate business is Rich’s passion, it is not the only one. He began running in 1966, ran collegiately, and continues to “pound the pavement and the trails” having competed in over 500 races including 17 marathons and logging over 111,000 miles. The next challenge is the Ultra Marathon: maybe.

Today I booked a course for February. That’s sales. The class may or may not happen. I may or may not get paid (mostly according to whether or not it happens). That is sales. Sales brings in the income, keeps the bills paid, brings home the “bacon,” so to speak. Periodically, I sell. The more[…]
As often happens in a course where we touch on technology, the other day I mentioned blogging as a way to reach people, share, and establish expertise. Then, as often happens, I asked who had a blog. As per usual, about a third of the hand rose. Then came the next obvious question, how many of[…]
