Episode Info

Episode Info: Mark Ferguson is the REO agent extraordinaire with blue Diablo Lamborghini. We need more people with that kind of refreshing perspective! So I invited him on the show today to share what tweak to his strategy sent him over the top. His Broker Price Opinion (BPO for short) strategy paid off HUGE and all it took was a change in attitude and a little risk.  [youtube]https://youtu.be/eCC8Os2NMnA[/youtube] Using a BPO and working with the bank to find and sell listings are all a part of the strategy secrets Mark’s talking about today. He started with cold calls to the bank - something some of us are a little wary of - and followed through with hard work. Who knew working in realty was that easy? With a few phone calls and a lot of hustle, Mark has been able to grow from selling 15-20 houses per year to over 200 houses! His ability to balance the work of an REO agent and an investor also pays off in full. His REO listings generate more buyers and help him build his team, while his investment properties continue to earn him profits. [Tweet "The biggest thing [my mistakes] cost me was opportunity because I wasn’t looking for more deals. - Mark"] The best part of this podcast is Mark’s amazing advice. Mark says that the only way to stay focused is to zero in on only a few things in the beginning. Take the time to narrow your focus, build your team, and establish a strong foundation at first. Whether your business is in flipping homes, rental properties, or a quirky BPO listing strategy, the best way to succeed is to focus on the solid base of this business. Remember - Staying focused will make you rich!
