As a real estate broker, knowledge is power.
Knowledge can come in the form of market statistics, mastering the ins and outs
of mortgage regulations or just knowing how to push yourself further. Good
thing that the collected wisdom of some of the smartest, most successful people
in our industry are giving away their secrets for free.
In this article, we identify five TED Talks which real estate brokers can benefit from. These talks range from scientific to
motivational, all with the aim of helping you elevate yourself as an investor
1.Amy Cuddy: How Body
Language Can Help You Close More Deals
Body language affects how others see us, but it
may also change how we see ourselves. Small changes to your body language and
posture can spur massive changes in mindset, and as a result, growth.
2.Barbara Corcoran: Rethinking
This is a must-watch for every bright-eyed real
estate broker, or anyone facing obstacles they think are unbeatable.
Here’s something amazing: those obstacles are not only easier to overcome than
you think, but can actually be the fire that tempers skill and mindset for
exponential growth. As any extremely successful person will tell you, failure,
not success, is what propels you forward.
McGonigal: How to Make Stress Your Friend
Stress! That sneaky emotion can dominate your thoughts,
kill your deals, and if you don’t treat it, might even kill you. Luckily,
stress is also what helps push us forward, and small amounts of stress are what
gives life meaning. How boring would it be if you aced every office space for rent in Makati every single time with no effort? This video will show you how to

5.Ben Miller: "The
Real Estate Deal that Could Change the Future of Everything"
In this TED Talk, Ben Miller, co-founder of the
real estate investing platform Fundrise, covers technology’s place in the real
estate world, as well as what it holds for the industry’s future. As the market
continues to adapt to digital changes, brokers need to catch up and change the
method of selling. Gone are the days of printing flyers of condominiums for sale in Pasay. Most people, if not everyone, are already shifting to exploring
opportunities with online real estate platforms like Earthauz.com.
Whatever profession we choose, we often take cues from those who paved way and "graduated to greatness." The speakers mentioned above did not only achieve financial success but were also passionate about life, came from humble beginnings, and never gave up despite the odds. They, too, went through lean times and never let the word "no" be an obstacle toward reaching their goals.
As realtors, we must know that success doesn't happen overnight. The real estate business can be fun, exciting, and a very satisfying career, but you have to survive that first year or two to make it all come together down the road. Having a confidant who can understand our struggles and confusions in the industry would be great. Have a plan, build a database of prospects, and work hard to find the keys to success as a realtor. You may learn from our pool of brokers in Earthauz.com as it provides an exclusive network for brokers to discuss anything about real estate.
