    Product Description:
    Real Estate Expert and Zillow's top blogger Brendon DeSimone introduces Next Generation Real Estate: New Rules for Smarter Home Buying & Faster Selling. DeSimone's new real estate book is the go-to guide for navigating and better understanding the complex and ever-evolving world of buying and selling a home.  
     
    * Markets move faster today. Buying or selling at the wrong time can have huge financial consequences. Given the susceptibility of the real estate market the past few years, it's imperative to approach an investment differently today. Brendon's unique perspective will help you determine your best plan of action and assess when the timing is right, from advice on if you should buy or rent to why listing your home too early may result in a lower sale price.
    * Information overload can cripple consumers today. Buyers and sellers have access to more information than ever.  Absent the appropriate context, certain data can cause confusion and lead to a financial disaster or missed opportunity.  Brendon explains how the role of the agent has evolved, why the use of a strong, well-connected local agent in real estate is more important than ever, and how to best leverage their expertise along the way.
    *Technology has changed the world and real estate forever. No longer is it common to live in or close to your hometown.  The Internet has allowed today's professional the ability to live anywhere and the fast-paced and competitive nature of the work place provides for people to be open to new job opportunities, in a new city, every few years.  Brendon guides today's consumers down the sometimes-risky real estate road of our new reality.
    * The real estate industry has evolved in the past ten years and taking advice from your parents or using guidelines from the 1980's could land you in deep water. Conversely, knowing what still works today and applying some of the more traditional tactics can help save you time and money. Brendon will address how the perfect combination of traditional practices such as the open house, with modern tactics like pre-sale inspections, can get you the best results.
    * Next Generation Real Estate helps speed up the learning curve and guides prospective sellers and buyers through the process. Brendon's done the work for you and passes his informed expertise. along with insider tips, from how to get back a non-refundable deposit and what not to say to the listing agent, to how to use Google Street View in Real Estate
    * 3 implications govern all buyers, sellers and real estate transactions: No matter the personality, generation, age of the client, or type of home being bought or sold, real estate will always have emotional, practical and financial considerations and implications.  These are at the center of any real estate transaction and it's imperative to know how to navigate various situations keeping these three fundamentals in mind.
    * New players and technology are introduced to the real estate industry every day, but it's important to know how to use these services online to benefit your real-life transactions. In DeSimone's how-to real estate book, you'll learn how to access, apply and interpret the tools and information available to not only help you make the best choice, but also to save you money.
    * There has been a major shift in sociological trends including the introduction and acceptance of various family households, higher divorce rates, an increase in single living structures, and a more widespread tendency of Millennials and boomers to remain in and return to cities rather than suburbs. Next Generation Real Estate provides knowledge and advice to best navigate these changes as they apply to the real estate market, to help you sell faster and buy smarter.

    Product Description:
    In The Book of YES, you will find the most powerful scripts in the real estate industry today. If you’re tired of the same old sales scripts or if you’ve done away with them all together, I know how you feel because I’ve been there. I was tired of seeing the same B.S.(bad sales) approaches and I wanted something that felt more natural for me. So I started creating my own scripts, for the simple reason that I hated being told, “No.” For me nothing was worse than that feeling of rejection. I was determined to figure out the perfect thing to say in every situation, and how to say it in a way that would cause sellers and buyers to want to say “Yes!” to me every time. This book is the result of that quest. And I’ve broken it in two unique parts so you can spend less time reading it, and more time using the life changing scripts inside. Part 1 will give you the foundation for making the scripts work for you. Not just some of the time, but every time! You’ll master how to inspire sellers to say “YES” to you giving you the magic key to unlock the success you want as a real estate agent. Part 2 Is the actual scripts that allow you to have smooth, choreographed conversations that lead you down the path to more success and more income. included in this section are… Prospecting scripts for sellers that lead up to the listing appointment. My unique Listing Presentation Scripts with examples of exactly how to deliver them for maximum impact. The Buyer Scripts that I’ve personally used for years to build my own real estate business from scratch. The Objection scripts that will show you how to overcome any objection with ease and never be scrambling for words when a client throws you a curveball. In all there are 27 scripts in this book that will show you how to handle any situation, conversation, and objection that might come your way. And each script has been tested, tweaked and perfected. How do I know this? Because I’ve used each and every one of them to close millions of dollars worth of real estate in my nearly 2 decade career. I’ve also taken the time to include things I’ve picked up over my career that will help take you beyond the scripts… How to identify resistance and influence triggers so you can naturally use the right words and phrases that gets more clients saying YES to you. My practice techniques for memorizing and using these scripts to their full impact. You won’t just be pulling words from your memory, you’ll be speaking from the heart so you come across as genuine. The “tiny tweaks” that turn a regular script into something powerful. These seemingly little differences can have a huge impact in the way a prospect or client responds to what you say. The 9 Keys to more powerful conversations that go way beyond just the words you say to a client. I’ve mastered all 9 of these techniques and each one has made a huge difference in how I present myself to clients. The Book of YES is an action guide, not a book of theory. Think of it as YOUR PLAY BOOK for the key conversations you have with sellers and buyers. Along with the scripts you will find tactical notes on how to use the script, why it works, and when to modify the script for various situations. This book is not about intimidating your clients to agree with you, it’s about inspiring them to say YES. And the more they do, the more abundance and success you will have in your life. The ultimate YES is saying YES to your goals, your dreams and your family so you can create the lifestyle that you want.
