Mike Ferry

transactly re coaches 1Mike Ferry has been one of the best real estate coaches in the industry for decades. He created the Mike Ferry Organization in order to give agents a comprehensive coaching experience. He mentors agents through the entire sales process, coaching them through everything they need to run a successful business. Sessions are offered over a variety of subjects including price negotiation, time management, hiring an assistant, and interacting with clients.

While the organization is a staple in the real estate industry, agents have still had some complaints about the program. First, the program can not begin until a lead has been secured. There is no coaching available on initial lead generation, only what to do after you have successfully found leads. Second, there is no cancellation policy available, making you locked in to your contract for at least one year, in most cases.

The Mike Ferry Organization offers one-on-one coaching starting at $650/month. Other coaching packages are also available including one for brokerages, and an upgraded premier agent package. With a track record and reputation like Mike Ferry's, it is no surprise that his methods work for so many agents.

Brian Buffini

transactly re coaches 3Brian Buffini is the CEO of Buffini and Company. He has focused his coaching business on teaching agents how to obtain quality referrals, and then use those referrals to sustain one's business. Buffini preaches to stay connected to your network, and consistently nurture each contact until they give you a lead. His training completely revolves around getting more referrals. He believes that building long term, meaningful relationships with clients now is the best way to generate business in the future.

By investing in Buffini's coaching, you will learn how to get the most out of everyone already in your network, but your skills in other methods of lead generation most likely will not be improved. Buffini believes in teaching a tried and true method of lead generation. So if you are looking for a more comprehensive coaching experience, a different coach would be a better fit for you.

Buffini and Company offers one-on-one coaching for $499/month, and group coaching for $239/month. With a flexible contract that allows for cancellation after six months, and discounts on multiple conferences and seminars, Buffini's coaching is at least worth checking out.

Craig Proctor

transactly re coaches 4Craig Proctor coaching is centered around teaching agents to revamp their personal branding through marketing efforts. He believes to achieve maximum lead generation capacity, leads must come to you, instead of you reaching out to them. In order to achieve this "reverse prospecting," a heavy focus on branding and advertising must be maintained. Proctor and his coaches will ensure you have a wide array of tools and tactics to increase your brand awareness, as well as create a powerful marketing campaign. This approach to coaching is best for anyone trying to generate leads, while increasing their brand equity.

While you will learn extensively about many online channels available for lead generation, you will not learn any customer relation skills beyond that. Proctor's coaching ends at acquiring a buyer or seller. As you know, getting a lead may be the first step in closing a deal, but it is definitely not the last. Therefore, Proctor's coaching is best for anyone who impresses clients once they get in the door, but may struggle getting them there at times.

Craig Proctor offers his program for $997/month. While that may seem steep, he offers a money back guarantee, and the ability to cancel your contract at any time. Click here to find out more about the coaching services offered by Craig Proctor.

The Agent Accelerator

transactly re coaches 5The creators of The Agent Accelerator platform set out with a specific goal in mind: to create a new agent's one-stop-shop to survive their first year in real estate. After talking with over 300 agents, brokers, and team owners, they learned that 51% of agents struggled the most in their first year with finding leads and getting clients. With this knowledge in mind, they developed and launched The Agent Accelerator. Its mission is to help real estate agents grow from surviving to thriving through training, coaching, and community.

Membership grants you lifetime access to their online video training university, which is available 24/7/365 with 65 lessons (and counting), as well as group coaching and access to a private Facebook mastermind group. Additionally, they recently launched a platform specifically for real estate teams and brokerages with added levels of customization and flexibility. Their training is focused on common struggles, finding leads, and turning those leads into clients. They also train agents on how to run their business well. To accomplish this, they offer accountability tools, tracking tools and, of course, top agent language patterns and scripts to communicate with their leads and clients.

A lifetime membership to this platform would cost you $499. Click here to learn more.
