Double Commissions & Guaranteed Repeat Business: Why Real Estate Agents Should be Working with Investors NOT Competing with Them w/Sunil Saxena

podcast Aug 10, 2021

In today’s listing scarce market, real estate investors hold the key to more property, more deals, and more income. Surprisingly, very few agents ever engage with investors. Most of us treat them as competitors, instead of allies in a challenging market. 

The bottom line is, if we aren’t actively building relationships with investors, we’re shooting ourselves in the foot. 

What are real estate investors looking for in potential Realtor partners, and how do we approach them? How do we apply an investor’s mindset to everything from homes to buying exotic cars? 

In this episode, I’m joined by Sunil Saxena, an MD who decided to bring his skill set and talents to the world of real estate investing. He shares how Realtors can double their business and their commissions by getting an investor (or three) on their side. 

Every agent should be working with investors. It’s repeat business. Once you know what they want and you have that product, they’ll pretty much always buy it from you. - Sunil Saxena
