Overseeing a national commercial real estate coaching organization, I have worked with and/or monitored close to 1,000 CRE professionals; and I have found there are 2 major challenges most successful brokers have faced.

[Tweet “There are 2 major challenges most successful CRE brokers face…”]

#1 major challenge:

You have hit a plateau and are stuck.

You have been a commercial real estate professional for 5, 10 or maybe 20 years and what you have done in years past simply isn’t creating the results you know you can achieve.

You see others, often with less experience than you, winning assignments that you know you should win. You are frustrated and maybe angry, because you simply don’t know how to break out.

#2 major challenge:

You are drowning in your own success.

Yes, you made it. You are successful. You have good deal flow, more leads, more clients, and more referrals. You are doing more business than ever before and the only thing you don’t have is a life!

Unfortunately, the problem is that you are not creating a business, you are just creating more work for yourself. You don’t know where your time goes and you can’t recognize how to remove yourself from this velocity of work without losing the bulk of your business.




The good news is that I can tell you unequivocally, by working with thousands of your peers, you are not the first to hit these obstacles in your career and you will not be the last. I can also assure you there are proven approaches to assist you in not only overcoming these challenges, but in propelling your business to the next level.

To assist you in moving past these challenges, our subsequent blogs will provide insight that will allow you to move towards a career of consistent, high quality deal flow and more time to focus on the things you enjoy most about your business and your life.

In the meantime, if this sounds like you, there are answers to the challenges you are facing. There are specific strategies and tactics you can use to move your business forward. If you would like to learn more about these specific solutions, tell us what your greatest challenge is today, and I’ll send you a recording sharing a way to remove this obstacle from your road to greater success.
