Your Financial IQ and The Golden Handoff

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Your Financial IQ is a way to measure how you deal with money and investing. In real estate we are all mostly on our own until now. The NAR Financial Wellness Program is here to help.

I was interviewed recently for Realtor Magazine and it’s worth the read! Read Here

Here are some bullet points:

  1. Make more money than you need for today
  2. Set up your business to save on taxes
  3. Save money to pay taxes, expenses, and have a rainy day fund
  4. Once you have a rainy day fund for 6 months of expenses start investing and make it the first thing you pay for each month, then pay yourself
  5. Grow your investments
  6. When you’re ready to retire or scale back use The Golden Handoff to make money from your book of business with an Adopting Agent

What is my business worth? New Calculator now available

By | News | No Comments

I’ve just launched a new interactive calculator that shows you what your business might be worth!

Based on the principles in my book The Golden Handoff the calculator automates the math I use in the “Money” chapter.  All you need to know is the average commission and the number of repeat and referral transactions per year. With just those two pieces of info you can see what your business could net you when you sell and retire and also what you could gross if you adopt a business.

Feel free to share this with any agent you’d love to work with!
