In this episode, host Dan Lesniak describes the process and steps of when and how to go from being a solo agent to bringing on support. If you are closing at least two deals per month, that is the time to start bringing on support. If you’re not closing at least two deals a month – you need to continue to focus on lead generation and conversion. Once you decide to start building your team, your first hire should be an administrative assistant. They should be doing all the low value things that take up a lot of your time as an agent. Dan cautions against bringing on a buyer’s agent as your first hire – if you do that, you will now be doing admin work for not one, but two people. Your second hire should be an inside sales agent – someone who spends about half of their time on the phones, following up on leads, and producing at least three to four appointments a day. Once you get to this stage of your first two hires successfully executing for your team, you’ll be reading for part 2 of building a team – in the next episode.
