Whether you’re an agent starting out or a leader looking to go to the next level, this recent chat with HIVE Property principal Josh Morrissey has a whole lot of wisdom for everyone.

In a podcast that’s packed full of actionable insights, Josh shares a host of great tips on the skills agents really need, how they can demonstrate true value to vendors, and the top habits every agent should embrace to thrive in both good times and bad.

Josh started HIVE in 2018 and already it’s an agency making a mark in Canberra. They consistently set suburb records, while in the past year Josh has sold 205 properties personally.

But it’s not all work and no balance. Josh says success for him isn’t just about business, and shares a big tip on how to have it all while enjoying the journey along the way.

He also notes there’s one critical question every leader, agent or individual should ask themselves regularly, and if they don’t know the answer, they should.

Josh goes on to share the most important leadership lessons he’s learned, the unique strategy he used to become a multi-area expert, along with the resources he turns to time and again.

Josh also happens to be our cover for the Spring edition of the Elite Agent Magazine, where he offers further insight into his real estate journey so far, the ethos behind HIVE and what drives him to succeed.

“If you’re going to get into real estate or into business or a leadership role, know your ‘why’. Be really, really clear. If you’re going to take on a leadership role within your team or within your business, do it with intent and do it with a plan.

“Your actions affect the people working for you. So if you’re going to go, go all in, don’t do it half-hearted and just enjoy the ride.” Josh Morrissey
