on May 18, 2021

When it comes to excellence in commercial real estate brokerage, it would be difficult to find a better overall team than the Coppola Cheney team of Lee & Associates in Phoenix, Arizona. This team is a dominant force within the office market in their territory, they are highly driven, and they are constantly pushing the envelope when it comes to excellence. In addition, each broker who is a member of their team is responsible for attending 8-9 networking events every month, so this should tell you something about their dedication to building new relationships, and uncovering every single opportunity that exists for them within their market. Keeping this in mind, take a look at this video that they’ve produced to introduce people to their own team. It’s something good and straightforward, and it helps to set themselves apart from all of their other competitors within the market, because most brokerage teams would never take the time to do something like this, and it’s just one more activity that the Coppola Cheney team has done, that exudes total professionalism towards their clients and...

The Two Major Arenas for Commercial Real Estate Brokerage Success

on Mar 22, 2021

Once you have good market knowledge and can talk to people intelligently about what’s going on in the marketplace, I believe your success in its simplest form in commercial real estate brokerage comes down to two main arenas: 1) Finding the prospects that you want to be working with, and 2) Getting these people to work with you exclusively. This presupposes that you have a good set of people skills and that people enjoy working with you, too. So if you’d like to begin generating more business, take a look at this video and determine which of these two arenas you need to begin focusing on....
