Half Measures Mean Nothing - Peter Lorimer - The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast

December 11, 2019

Greetings and welcome to the Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast, I am your host Peter Lorimer, former hit record producer, now host of the show Stay Here on Netflix and owner LA’s most creative boutique real estate firm, PLG Estates.

Half measures mean nothing.

In real estate, people will try something for 3 months and then they bail. They change tactics. That's a half measure.

You have to be all in. There's no reason that you shouldn't - no matter your age or where you've come from. Everyone has to start somewhere. Don't worry about where that is for you, just start.

Go into it with a positive attitude. Hope for success, but trust the result no matter what. And for love of all things beautiful - don't stop after three months. Give it your all, consistently and constantly for at least a year.

Here's the deal: You will not be successful right off the bat. You won't understand it all the moment you begin. But the wonderful thing is this - you can act your way into right thinking, as opposed to thinking your way into right acting. So just keep going.

Move forward with your head out of the results.

These tactics work, friends. I keep my head in this game day in and day out, striving to squeeze every bit of juice that I can out of the day.

Listen to this week's podcast to get your head in the game.

 

Golden Nuggets from this episode:

 

[02:23] “If you don’t run at something constantly and hard, the results are just never gonna come and that’s why I say we gotta be all in”

[02:51] “I have to act my way into right thinking as opposed to think my way into right action”

[08:35] “but the United Kingdom, in my opinion, is choking on a class system and always has been, and guys like me who come working-class backgrounds, you know 'boys trying to do well', you get kind of squashed.”

[09:28] “There is no reason why anybody in any age group shouldn't go all-in”

[11:27] “because I feel if I’m not squeezing every drop of juice out of every day, then I’m betraying the guys that I work with”

[11:50] “Everybody has to start somewhere, just jump in, because half-assing it will mean nothing ever happens.”

An Interview with Sharran Srivatsaa, CEO of Kingston Lane - Peter Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

An Interview with Sharran Srivatsaa, CEO of Kingston Lane - Peter Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

December 5, 2019

Greetings and welcome to the Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast, I am your host Peter Lorimer, former hit record producer, now host of the show Stay Here on Netflix and owner LA’s most creative boutique real estate firm, PLG Estates.

His is a great story about insurmountable odds, optimism, and authenticity.

He was bullied throughout his entire childhood, he came to the United States with a check for the first year of school and a suitcase, and he built a company that grew by 5x in a few years.

After 39 one-on-one interviews and intense training he learned deal structure from the inside out at Goldman Sachs. He then took that knowledge to help build things

He's a builder; entrepreneurship is in his blood. And when he learned to not just solve problems but to solve problems for a profit, everything changed.

We even got a little vulnerable in our conversation and talked about the Imposter Syndrome. It haunts entrepreneurs who have a difficult time internalizing success, but Sharran says it also keeps us humble and kind. And kindness wins.

Another thing that wins: cadence - showing up every single day, putting yourself out there. In short, show up.

Hearing stories from the great entrepreneurs of our time has me feeling super thankful. I hope you'll find time to listen to this one, it'll be worth it.

 

Golden Nuggets from this episode:

 

[04:09] “A lot of times people use the word entrepreneur as a badge of honor” - Sharran Srivatsaa

[05:36] “People only look at the success stories” - Sharran Srivatsaa

[19:36] “Right before I go to bed, I actually play the movie of my morning in my head with my eyes closed”

[27:48] “The world is changing so fast, that I wanna see what sticks, what works” - Sharran Srivatsaa

[31:38] “and so now when someone is actually spending a 1000 dollars running a facebook ad, they are like -oh, facebook leads suck! and I’m like: “you don’t have a system to nurture them.” -Sharran Srivatsaa

[32:52] “back in the days, we just wanted the phone to ring, now we get bombarded with all sorts of leads” - Peter Lorimer

[33:53] “press a button, it auto SMS them saying: Hey I’m working through a few things for my private clients this evening, I’m just gonna try if you’re available between 6:00 and 8:00 pm, no pressure”, now if you do that and then call them, it’s a completely different call night” - Sharran Srivatsaa

[35:45] “I win everyday because I show up every single day”- Sharran Srivatsaa

How To Win The Real Estate Game? Know your UVP / Peter Lorimer - The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast

How To Win The Real Estate Game? Know your UVP / Peter Lorimer - The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast

November 20, 2019

Greetings and welcome to the Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast, I am your host Peter Lorimer, former hit record producer, now host of the show Stay Here on Netflix and owner LA’s most creative boutique real estate firm, PLG Estates.

Winning has nothing to do with getting "what's mine" and everything to do with gratitude.

Friends, if you woke up in the United States, you've already won. I realize that there are different levels of this and that there are people in our country that are struggling.

That's why we need to be focusing on what we can contribute, instead of what we can get.

Start the day with gratitude. When your eyes open, think: what does the day have in store and how can I give back?

I grew up in a tough neighborhood, and learned from an early age to suck out of life what was mine. Now, I focus on what I can give back.

Wake up with an attitude like that, and you've already won.

Listen to this week's podcast as we uncover ways to win and charge forward with gratitude, hope, and ambition.

 

Golden Nuggets from this epsiode:

 

[03:48] “when we wake up in the United States we already won”

 

[05:32] “because when you fill a room with positivity and sincere and authentic optimism it's freaking contagious.”

 

[07:32] “I remember playing Donkey Kong at level 1 thinking at myself, there is no freaking way the I am gonna figure out how to get to the next level”

 

[08:39] “I changed my career at 37 and started from ground zero.”

 

[10:39] “that's my old music business mentality of when I used to make dance records, I used to have to make them for the floor that would work in six months, so I had to really hone my streetwise skills”

#1 Tip How to Invest in YOU and your Career / Pete Lorimer - The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast

#1 Tip How to Invest in YOU and your Career / Pete Lorimer - The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast

November 13, 2019

Greetings and welcome to the Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast, I am your host Peter Lorimer, former hit record producer, now host of the show Stay Here on Netflix and owner LA’s most creative boutique real estate firm, PLG Estates.

Be a glutton for data. Consume knowledge as much as possible. Fill the fringe time with the productive intake of education. It's everywhere. YouTube, Instagram, blogs, podcasts. Pick your poison and go all-in with investing in YOU.

One of the biggest downfalls I see is realtors not investing in new tools. They peruse books handed to them by whatever brokerage they're in and don't dive all in with learning. Cindy and I, from the very beginning, have been obsessed with progression and discovering new technologies.

I didn't just wake up like this, friends. It's taken gallons of espresso and countless hours of searching and learning to get me to where I am. I have hundreds of failures under my belt, and I've learned to toss aside the notion of caring if I look like a dick or not.

If you're just dipping your toes into all this, come on in. The water's just fine. Let's make a splash together and dive into this week's episode of the Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast.

 

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

[03:09] “Realtors tend to have a habit of, not seeking the new tools, we tend to almost rest in our laurels”

[03:40] “A professional athlete needs to workout, running the track is only just part of the game if anything it is the least amount of work that they do.”

[04:14] “anything and everything you want to find, exists on freaking YouTube”

[04:48] “ Everything that I have found to be successful I never found in a book that a brokerage gave me.”

[07:37] “social media allows all of us to have a voice”

[08:29] “ I treat my business like an athlete would treat theirs”

Interview With The #1 Keller Williams Agent In The World: Bob Lucido / Pete Lorimer - The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast

Interview With The #1 Keller Williams Agent In The World: Bob Lucido / Pete Lorimer - The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast

November 6, 2019

Greetings and welcome to the Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast, I am your host Peter Lorimer, former hit record producer, now host of the show Stay Here on Netflix and owner LA’s most creative boutique real estate firm, PLG Estates.

Bob Lucido started out in real estate at 18 years old. Bob and his wife own Lucido Agency, with over 150 agents across the country.

They partner with passionate agents and provide them with the service, tools, and support of Lucido's powerful full-service real estate team - empowering agents to deliver the ultimate real estate experience by providing incredible value and exceptional service to their clients.

Bob Lucido Team encompasses its Maryland agents and is also the headquarters. Lucido Agency encompasses all expansion agents across the U.S. and Canada.

He has 43 years under his belt in this industry, but you won't find him stagnant. An avid reader and a glutton for constructive criticism - he's constantly working to improve.

He contributes his success in real estate to surrounding himself with the right people. And the right people, in his opinion, care more about others than themselves. They have integrity, they're team players, coachable, and have a servant's heart.

If you ever find Lucido sitting by himself in a corner at Starbucks, you'll know he's implementing his trusted Starbucks Strategy. He's an appointment guy - always hankering for in-person meetings. My kinda guy.

The guy has no ego and no fear. I really enjoy talking shop with other real estate agents who really get it, and this conversation has me on cloud nine.

Thanks for listening. I'd love to hear what you think about this one, friends.

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

 

[03:02] “Dinner always tastes better with friends” - Peter Lorimer

 

[04:40] “having the right people in your life - having coaches and support mechanism is incredibly important” - Bob Lucido

 

[07:06] “number one is integrity, Warren Buffett says if they don't have that the interview is over” - Bob Lucido

 

[07:26] “if they’re not a team player that's a cancer to any organization” - Bob Lucido

 

[08:41] “nobody works for me I work for everybody else” - Bob Lucido

 

[10:59] “There’s only success in action, we can’t think our way into right action, but we can act our way into right thinking” - Peter Lorimer

 

[13:33] “but now there are a myriad of online outlets that in my opinion are selling poor to very poor leads, and all that doing is evaporating the hours in the day that I have” - Peter Lorimer

 

[23:44] “I don't believe you've ever arrived you're always getting there” - Bob Lucido

 

[30:35] “You either alive and growing or dead and dying” - Bob Lucido

How To Not Get Distracted By The Digital Carrot / Pete Lorimer - The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast

How To Not Get Distracted By The Digital Carrot / Pete Lorimer - The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast

October 30, 2019

Greetings and welcome to the Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast, I am your host Peter Lorimer, former hit record producer, now host of the show Stay Here on Netflix and owner LA’s most creative boutique real estate firm, PLG Estates.

I've seen many agents chasing shiny new objects. There's an epidemic of Shiny New Object Syndrome.

Sure, there are definitely techniques we can use to enhance technology and further our relationships with our clients. But if we try to compete in the binary world, we'll never win.

We're going to fail if we try to be better than tech.

Think about the doctors, lawyers, and other professionals you work with. We all work with people that we trust and people that have empathy for us. Personal interactions will always get the most value.

But you can use technology to create more opportunities for personal interactions. How? The drum I won't quit banging on. Social media. Social media demonstrates who you are. Optimism, belief structures, compassion, parenting.

Who cares if you there's a platform that can make a transaction a little quicker? Stop having sterile interactions with your clients. Take the time and book a phone call or a video conference.

We are peddlers of trust--no computer can do that. As long as trust, compassion, empathy are arrows in our quiver, our future is bright.

Stop underselling your business. Don't blend in. Stand out. #boutiqueisbetter. Here's this week's episode of the Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast.

 

Golden Nuggets from this episode:

 

[03:47] “as human beings if we chase after doing what computers can do better than us we're gonna fail.”

[05:42] “I have three children, if one of my kids get sick I'm not gonna hit an Uber doctor for the most convenient doctor that’s around the block. I’m gonna go to someone that knows my family, that I like, that I trust, that has empathy for me, that is gonna only want the very best for me and my family.”

[07:24] “When I'm buying a car, right, I still need to look into the dude's eyes or the woman's eyes as they give me the keys and go if something goes wrong I can bring this back right I need accountability I need to look at someone and feel some kind of trust and compassion.”

[08:49] “the commodity that we have that has the most value is personal interaction.”

[11:48] “we are peddlers of trust there is nothing that can replace that, no computer can Uberize our trust and no computer can Uberize our empathy.”

[13:03] “boutiques are flourishing better than they have done in years and the giants of filing for bankruptcy”

How To Use Leadership To Redirect Fear And Confusion / Pete Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

How To Use Leadership To Redirect Fear And Confusion / Pete Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

October 23, 2019

Greetings and welcome to the Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast, I am your host Peter Lorimer, former hit record producer, now host of the show Stay Here on Netflix and owner LA’s most creative boutique real estate firm, PLG Estates.

There's quite a bit of confusion and fear swirling about right now. And fear can really be paralyzing. Especially when we are dealing with massive things like property and people's homes. Emotions are at their highest during times like these.

Our clients look to us for guidance, leadership, and forecasting. Sure, you aren't sitting there with a crystal ball. People think PLG Estates is full of street wisdom. That did not come naturally. We research, consistently.

Ultimately, it's about treating your clients like family. When you do that, you'll strive to offer them the best advice possible.

If you're an agent feeling overwhelmed by the nation's current atmosphere, give this podcast a listen, and put the next step forward in offering your clients the best possible service. Here's this week's episode of the Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast.

 

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

 

[02:11] “fear can be paralyzing especially with an asset as massive as real estate and asset as massive as property”

[02:44] “When there is confusion in the air, now is the time to act”

[07:39] “find a niche it doesn't have to be super super super super tiny but find a niche and go for it otherwise everybody's just the same”

How to Overcome Professional Insecurity / Pete Lorimer - The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast

How to Overcome Professional Insecurity / Pete Lorimer - The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast

October 16, 2019

Greetings and welcome to The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast, I am your host Peter Lorimer, former hit record producer, now host of the show Stay Here on Netflix and owner LA’s most creative boutique real estate firm, PLG Estates.

I'm the single largest critic when it comes to myself and my business. My very first thoughts of the day are not always positive.

I know I put positivity and excitement into the universe and come across as being pretty secure. To be quite honest, I'm probably one of the most insecure people you'll meet. But I flip the script of negativity in my brain and I charge forward.

Do you love challenging the system? Do you think differently? Are there naysayers in your life? I get it. It's hard. But, in my opinion - you can't be too creative.

I see fear driving real estate. Just because you're the only one around you that feels this way does not mean you're wrong.

There's mad respect out there for those that are willing to have a crack at it. If you want to be different, be different. Let's do it. Check out this week's episode of The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast

 

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

 

[03:00] “as my mate Gary Vee says: “our business is already stepped against us” so if we go in there with the attitude that we may lose we’re done, we have lost the game”

 

[05:01] “in order for us to be successful we have to treat it like an athlete treats their career, we got to work at it every single day and when we're not in front of clients we got to be learning our tray.”

 

[05:34] “Every failure brings us closer to a triumph right if it was easy everybody would do it.”

 

[06:54] “I am going to give it everything I've got to be successful in the music industry otherwise I'm going to kick myself for the rest of my life, if I give it my all and I fail, then at least I know I've done it I've maxed it out, and if it doesn't work it doesn't work.”

 

[07:16] “everybody wears a vanilla shroud because I think they’re too afraid to kind of pop out and show that personality in case somebody doesn't like them.”

 

[08:46] “when you do things that are different other people feel uncomfortable around you”

 

[09:21] “imagine just how beautiful it tastes when you do it your way and you win”

The Power To Take Control of Your Life And Career / Pete Lorimer - The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast

The Power To Take Control of Your Life And Career / Pete Lorimer - The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast

October 9, 2019

Life is full of hardship. I recently went through an extremely difficult and emotional hardship. I learned something that has been incredibly instrumental for me in life and in business, and in efforts to be of service to you, I want to share.

Acceptance: life on life's terms, and how to turn it into your advantage.

When my lovely mother passed away, I found myself at a crossroads. I've been here before. I could be a victim, or I could be of service. I decided to remove what I wanted from the situation and put into the situation what I thought she would've wanted. I came away with it with absolutely no regrets. My focus was not on me - it was on my mother and what she would have wanted.

Surrender.

It sounds weak, but it's actually the opposite. When you accept what is happening, you can quit manipulating and you are able to have a clarity of purpose. You can let go of expectations.

When you are absolutely of service, it's easy to make the right decisions.

The game has changed. Real estate is now 49% transactional and 51% service. As a new agent, I learned to remove my expectations and made it entirely about being of service to my clients. Worked well then, and it works well now.

They're not going to remember much except for the way you make them feel. Let's dive in, friends. Here's this week's episode of the Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast.

 

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

 

[06.53] “I can be a victim or I can go into ultimate ninja service”

 

[07:35] “at the end of the day we are masters of our own destiny and I think that's the type of entrepreneurial spirit that I tend to and I like to attract”

 

[08:26] “I was just a spectator and I was there to ultimately, and in its purest essence be of service”

 

[10:54] “It’s not what you do, it’s how you do it.”

 

[12:04] “people don't wanna work with a robot they wanna work with someone that is empathetic to their needs”

 

[16:29] “when I get out of my own way, when I stay out with my expectations, when I stay in service, the Universe just has this wonderful way of making everything to play out perfectly”

5 Secrets To Finding Amazing Mentors / Pete Lorimer - The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast

5 Secrets To Finding Amazing Mentors / Pete Lorimer - The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast

October 2, 2019

Greetings and welcome to the Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast, I am your host Peter Lorimer, former hit record producer, now host of the show Stay Here on Netflix and owner LA’s most creative boutique real estate firm, PLG Estates.

This week's podcast is about surrounding ourselves with knowledge. If we want to grow, we have to rub shoulders with those that are more successful than we are.

I have to learn. I may have dropped out of high school., but today I drink from the firehose of life.

It's my duty to learn. And the best way to do that is by finding a mentor.

When I was getting sober, I stopped spending time with people that were distracting me from sobriety. The same is true in business. Spend time with people who will push you towards your goal. People you can learn from and be inspired by.

BUT HOW, PETE?

Tip #1 - Ask one person out for coffee each week. The fear with this is that they're too busy or don't want to go. 95% of them will say yes.

Tip #2 - Once a month (or more), take someone that you admire out for lunch.

Tip #3 - Really good mentors are super busy, so you probably need more than one.

There are tons of mentors that will never see your face. They'll mentor you in the form of websites, books, podcasts, and videos.

Meet some of my favorite mentors that I don't actually meet with:
Tim Ferriss podcast
Hack the Entrepreneur podcast
Seth Godin
Casey Neistat
Bigger Pockets podcast

Ultimately, help others. Give everything you know away. And dedicate yourself to consistent learning. On that note, let's get to it in this week's episode of the Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast.

 

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

 

[02:07] “for me success isn't something that necessarily I created, success is me following the footsteps of people that have done a very similar thing to what I done, before”

[02:23] “having someone go forth before you, is incredibly valuable”

[09:45] “getting shut down is part of the gig, if people say no, move on to someone else”

[13:30] “when I have had to make business decisions I imagine Richard Branson, is sitting across the table from me”
