When you want to improve your business, those who've already walked the path are a valuable source of insight. With years of experiences and knowledge of the business, they're often willing to share their secrets to help other agents get ahead.
One of the most popular methods to share their advice is through podcasts—but with thousands of podcasts to choose from, which ones should you listen to? Here are our favorite podcasts for real estate agents.
Coach Tom Ferry
Tom Ferry is the founder and CEO of one of the real estate industry's leading coaching and training programs, as well as the bestselling author of "Life! By Design" and "Mindset, Model, and Marketing!" His podcast covers a wide range of topics to help agents get more listings, advertise successfully and engage clients more fully.
The BiggerPockets Podcast is hosted by Brandon Turner and David Greene. They primarily interview real estate agents and investors about their successes, failures and lessons. These interviews are great if you're looking for ways to supplement your income by investing, or even just looking for new tips to share with your clients.
If you want a fun listen, these podcasts are what you're looking for. On "Caravan Confessions," Eric Simon interviews agents about the strangest things that happened to them on the job. These cover everything from walking in on someone using the bathroom to accidentally texting a listing agent something they absolutely weren't meant to see.
