An agent promoting self-employed business models has launched a course showing how estate agents can earn £100,000 per year.
The set of free-to-view videos, from Sean Newman, is what he calls “a mini course” - although there are 22 short videos in total.
“Many people do not believe it is possible to earn £100,000 a year as an estate agent, so this course was created to show that is it possible and give a clear step by step guide on how to do it” says Newman. His course includes case studies of those said to be earning in excess of £100,000.
Video topics include how many market appraisals are required, 10 ways to generate market appraisals and how to convert these into listings. There is also a video giving marketing tips on how to sell these listings for the best price and not do what most agents - do “put it on Rightmove and wait for the phone to ring” in Newman’s words.
He says: “This income level is based on an agent being on a self-employed model, however the course is designed to help all estate agents, so employees will also benefit from the tips, advice and suggestions in this course”
And he continues: “My overriding desire is to help raise the standards in estate agency and improve the public's perception of estate agents. I love helping others, so if this free mini course can help some estate agents improve their results or help anyone who wants to become an estate agent, then it has been worthwhile.
"After completing the course some agents may decide they want to become self-employed estate agents, but they don’t have to. There is no cost and no catch, agents can watch the video and implement what they learn”
The course is available here and Newman has requested feedback from agents via his social media channels here.
Newman - who is the owner of a 16-branch Fine & Country franchise as well as his own Newman Property Experts chain - has been in overdrive recently promoting his approach to self employed agency.
