Best Real Estate Coaches

The world’s elite performers all have coaches. Athletes, CEOs, and musicians. The second set of experienced eyes can be invaluable in going from “good” to “great.”

Real estate agents are an especially coached-up demographic.

Almost all top-producing agents and brokers have coaches (and often become coaches themselves).

Coaches have slightly different strengths in sales, lead generation, or business systems.

Many also offer one-off training if you want access to their resources and knowledge without the commitment of a monthly bill.

If your business is ready to benefit from coaching (more on that below), here are some of the top real estate consultants and coaches you should consider!

When is it Time for a Coach?

I heard a lot of advice that getting a coach is never too soon. If you’re serious about real estate, a coach will get you from point A to B much faster and return a high ROI on the cost, so the thinking goes. Just one more deal a month …

I’m not sure I agree.

The same principle as applies to selecting real estate software applies to selecting a real estate coach.

There are no silver bullets.

You shouldn’t be getting a coach out of desperation. You shouldn’t get a coach because you think it will solve your problems.

New agents don’t know what they don’t know. There is a tremendous amount of free resources and sales training online. There are dozens of quality podcasts. Agents should explore and learn independently before knowing which coaching company is the best fit.

Real estate is still a scrappy business, and I think many agents are best off spending as little as possible early.

You can source some coach benefits like accountability and mentorship from your brokerage.

That’s just my opinion.

Instead, if you have been in the business a year or two, know your strengths and weaknesses, and are making more money than you need to pay your bills, then maybe it’s time. Coaching will take you from “good” to “great,” not “bad” to “better.” Get “good” first.

If you are on a team, you might want to check out one of the programs that offer group coaching. The team can test a coach out and share the costs.

Final word

Wherever you are in your career in real estate, these coaches should be on your radar. Most have free information you should be consuming, and you can start early learning which ones match your needs and which ones do less so.
