johnI love real estate.

In 2007, I founded the innovative Toronto brokerage Realosophy to demonstrate how technology and data (about homes, neighbourhoods, schools and more) can help people make smarter real estate decisions. It has been energizing to see my approach to real estate work for the agents I have successfully developed and trained and our hundreds of happy clients.

This blog is focused on helping agents develop the skills they need to sell effectively to today’s home buyer and seller.

Being a great salesperson is not about handing out lawn bags and asking everyone you know once a month if they are thinking of buying and selling.

The right real estate decisions can help our clients live the lives they want. For far too long, consumers have been sold to instead of advised and the result can be devastating — paying the mortgage is the most common thing couples argue about

As real estate agents, we advise on decisions that matter.

So welcome.

I hope that you will find my advice on the listening, communication, analytical skills and grit you will need to be today’s top agent to be compelling and useful. I’ll be sharing blog posts, videos, workshops and more — and I hope you will get in touch with your own questions.
