    Tara Bradbury: Back in the game

    I've got some news. It may the industry's worst kept secret, but I can finally, officially, say I’m heading back to the coalface. The decision to come back into the property management industry isn’t one I’ve taken lightly, or quickly, but something I’ve been contemplating over the past 12 to 18 months. There’s a host…

    Build your BDM profile through video

    Every day I have BDMs telling me that they want to do more videos to promote themselves and educate their clients, but have no idea what to say or where to even start. My first piece of advice is just to start. It won’t be perfect in the beginning and, to be honest, would you…

    How to deliver a confident listing presentation

    I recently conducted a role-play session during a workshop where I was the BDM and one of the attendees was the property owner.

    How to set realistic KPIs for BDMs: Tara Bradbury

    Nothing creates a feeling of defeat as much as setting unrealistic expectations for ourselves does. Few BDMs are aware of how they often set themselves up to fail by developing unattainable goals; losing themselves in a cycle of disappointment and negative self-talk.
