What is your excuse for NOT selling Luxury real estate?

"I'm too: young, green, old, poor, to sell luxury real estate"

Don't let your excuses get in the way of creating your dream career in real estate.

I have heard so many agents think that they were too (insert your own reason) to make it in luxury, yet never realizing it was all within them all along.

This 12-Week Luxury Real Estate Course will give you actionable items and tasks that will blow up any of your own self-limiting beliefs and make you the strong agent that you are meant to be! Knowledge and education about a career in luxury real estate are your keys to the career of your dreams.

In just 12 weeks, you will learn what it took me years to learn, all in actionable chunks, to walk you through the blueprint of luxury real estate success.

Stop the excuses today. Today is the day you choose to change your career, your income, your life: www.JanieInspires.com

Landing pages + Facebook ads = Neighborhood leads

Here is one of our favorite and easiest marketing checklists for reaching the neighbors of your current listing and for effectively capturing their attention and their contact information in order to win more listings in the area.
Here are the simple steps:
  1. Enter your listing on RealBird and upload the photos
  2. Share your automatically generated landing page link (For Sale or Just Listed) on your Facebook Page
  3. Write a custom call-for-action text above the shared link, something like the example below
  4. Once posted on Facebook, boost the post as a Facebook ad
  5. Make sure you create a custom audience for the ad, as described below
  6. Run the ad with whatever budget you can afford, but at least for 7 days, so that you have a good weekly distribution of impressions
Call-for-action text to add above the link on Facebook

Curious to learn what your neighbor is selling their house for?
Click for INSTANT ACCESS to price, all photos and property details.

Neighborhood audience
For this kind of Facebook ads, you want to select a very focused audience. I am making the assumption that the subject property is a residential, single family home for sale. For the custom audience for this boosted post select the following:
  1. Enter the full address of the subject property and select a small radius, e.g. 1 or 2 miles
  2. Select "People who live in this location" (which will include the radius around the address of course)
  3. In detailed targeting, select Homeowners as shown below in the demographics category
Facebook Audience
That's it. Within a few minutes, you have your neighborhood ad running on Facebook utilizing the new RealBird Lead Capture Landing Pages.
Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions and of course, we love to hear your success stories of using the new landing pages.

Below are a few testimonials Janie received from agents and brokers who participated in her last course (some of them you may recognize as RealBird members too :)

"I highly recommend Janie Coffey’s new course, 12 Week Launch Program to Luxury Real Estate.  This is 12 weeks that are packed with all the information that you need to take your business to the next level and move up into the world of luxury real estate.  Janie has been extremely open and unselfish in her willingness to share exactly what she did in order to achieve success.  Even if you were to follow only half of what she teaches I am sure that you will see positive changes in your business.  I have learned so many things that I am working on incorporating into all aspects of how I approach my business.  I have not seen another course that is as comprehensive and well organized.  This is a game changer!" - Pam Dent of Gayle Harvey Real Estate Inc., Director, Charlottesville Area Association of Realtors (CAAR)


"Awesome, informative course that is a must for new to highly experienced agents! Great reference material and explained thoroughly! Jam packed with useful tactics!!!" - Shelly Northern of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty


"As a luxury real estate agent for ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, I'm constantly getting marketed to. Many companies promise you the world and you end up with zero or minimal benefits. I've spent over $50,000 on useless services in my thirteen years of selling real estate. So needless to say, I'm now extremely picky what time  choose to invest in. Because of the amount of training I've done to better my real estate career, I'm almost always disappointed after attending a training session because I didn't learn anything. With that said, Janie's training was absolutely priceless. There are countless takeaways from her course and you learn something almost immediately. I would highly recommend her training to anyone that wants to make a seven figures. You won’t be disappointed. Mark my words and thank me later."Amit Bhuta of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty
