This week my travels found me at home starting Monday off with the Berkshire Hathaway Energy weekly meeting and my typical WIG calls. On Tuesday, I presented 4DX Tune-Up to the leadership team at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Toronto then shared my real estate story for the launch of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Alexander Chandler Realty in Fort Worth, Texas. On Wednesday, I presented 4DX Tune-Up to three separate teams: first to attendees at the HomeServices of America Legal Conference then to the team at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate and finally to the team at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices EWM Realty. Today, I gave my 4DX Tune-Up presentation to the leadership team at HomeServices of Kentucky, including president and CEO Brad DeVries. Finally, I ended my day presenting “Mindset Leadership Amid COVID-19” to the HomeServices Title team and Vice President Jim Lamphere.

With so many presentations to so many different leaders, my mind was focused this week on each particular audience and customizing my presentations to fit their specific challenges, opportunities and goals.

This week my travels found me at home, starting the week with my typical WIG calls for our CEOs followed by the 6th Annual D’Ambrosio Family Foundation Golf Tournament in San Jose, California. On Tuesday, I participated in the weekly Berkshire Hathaway Energy meeting and on Wednesday, I filmed for HomeServices of America projects in Los Altos, California. I also attended a planning meeting with HomeServices of America group leaders for the upcoming CEO Leadership Conference taking place virtually Sept. 23-24.

As I worked through this new week and new month, I continued to explore the wealth of knowledge published by the Harvard Business Review. Peter F. Drucker, one of my very first mentors, wrote a compelling piece for the publication titled “What Makes an Effective Executive.” In the article Drucker details how executives who are effective get the right things done in the right ways.

This week my travels found me at home, starting the week with my standard Monday agenda of WIG calls and the Berkshire Hathaway Energy Meeting. On Wednesday, I presented the 4DX Tune-Up to HomeServices of America Relocation Directors then presented “Mindset, Leadership and Marketing Best Practices Amid COVID-19” to three chapters of the Asian Real Estate Association of America (AREAA): Orange County, Calif., Seattle and Portland. Finally, today I participated in the HomeServices of America Budget Review with Berkshire Hathaway Energy.

As I virtually met with leaders across the country (and world), I began thinking about the qualities all effective leaders must possess. What does it take to be a great leader? The answer is often more art than science, as author and science journalist Daniel Goleman explained in his pivotal Harvard Business Review article, “What Makes a Leader?”

Thoughts on Leadership: Masterminds & Mother’s Day

The T3 Summit is an invite-only mastermind and think tank for residential real estate industry leaders.

What’s the ROI of Using Social Media in Real Estate?

By Victor Quiroz

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and more recently, SnapChat, are all social media platforms that can capture the attention of potential millennial clients. Why? Because most, if not all, of these platforms are now part of millennials’ daily life. Social media sites and apps are their preferred tool to stay connected to the world.

Let’s examine this trend by the numbers: Entrepreneur Magazine found that millennials check their social media platforms via a mobile device an average of 43 times per day! A January 2015 Forbes survey revealed 87% of millennials use between two and three tech devices for social media on a daily basis. The American Press Institute said 88% of all millennials get their daily news from Facebook or some other social media platform.
