Have you ever wondered what separates top real estate agents from the rest?

Today’s guest, The Agency General Manager of Sales for NSW/ACT Luke Evans, knows.

According to Luke, the most successful agents are driven by an unquenchable appetite for growth that motivates them to break boundaries, refine their skills and embrace lifelong learning.

In this episode of the Elevate podcast, hosted by Samantha McLean, Luke also reveals why work ethic and effective execution are must-have abilities and how self-confidence is a major linchpin for success, separating agents who thrive from those who falter.

Luke also shares invaluable insights that can supercharge your career, regardless of your experience level, including how to get the most from your database, identifying the hidden opportunities within the most modest of appraisals and turbocharging your listings.

Samantha and Luke also discuss the priceless mentorship magic that can propel your career and those you help, as well as Luke’s 12-week transformation program that could be your ticket to real estate greatness.

“If you’re not going to choose you, then don’t expect someone else to. Don’t expect someone with a four-bedroom, ensuite, double garage, that’s downsizing, that’s been there for 30 (years), don’t expect them to choose you unless you think that you’re the best option.” – Luke Evans
