The Ninja Selling Podcast

Dec 28, 2020

Today, Matt and Garrett have a couple of incredible stories of just what it means to be an advisor in real estate and the benefits that arise from that role. As trusted advisors, you may forfeit the sale directly in front of you, but you will gain that raving fan that will result in those incredibly valuable referrals. For Ninjas, forging relationships is paramount, and today’s episode shows you how a couple of agents have taken that to heart, and how you can do the same.


Stories from Sonia Guardado of Round Rock, Texas, and Paul Schnaitter of Fort Collins, Colorado, are offered as prime examples of the power of being a trusted advisor in this episode, with our hosts highlighting the reasons behind this power. Along the way, they emphasize the importance of forming lasting relationships, unlocking referrals, shifting your mindset from selling to advising, and asking the right questions and then really listening to the answers. In this episode, you will learn from our two experts just how taking on that trusted advisor role can result in a lasting relationship with your people, and miracle business for you.
