About Carrie Bey-Little, the Speaker
My goal is to educate, inspire, and motivate small business owners to reach their personal and professional dreams. Over the next several weeks I will update my blog to inspire new agents and agents that need to reinvent themselves for a successful 2015.
The Real Estate industry is evolving quickly for real estate agents. Agents that have been selling for more than 15 years are finding that they are competing with the new generation “AGENT”. The tech savvy, social savvy and educated agent. These agents are changing the way business is done. Most buyers and sellers are able to educate themselves before reaching out to a real estate agent. If an agent doesn’t integrate the new technologies into their businesses they will end up “listless” No listing and no buyers” If you don’t have a buyer and or a seller you don’t have an income.
Check out a few Real Estate Agents who are using Social Media in their daily business plans, Sam Powell, Andrea Geller, Jeffrey Metz, and myself Carrie Bey-Little.
