2018 Roundup: Top 20 Podcasts for Real Estate Agents

Podcasts are a real estate agent’s best friend!

New agents want to learn all about their new profession, and veteran agents want to stay current with the industry changes, but agents are always busy, so blogs and books may not be the most practical way to get all the information you need.

That’s why podcasts are so great! You can listen while you’re prepping your open houses, waiting for your buyers to meet you at the first home of the day, or driving to your next appointment. Imagine all the information you could consume just by listening to podcasts while driving!

Not sure what to listen to? No problem! We’re going to give you our picks for the Top 20 Podcasts for Real Estate Agents from this past year.

If you think about it, you’re providing expert investment to every one of your buyers.

13. The Honest Real Estate Agent

Mario Jannatpour taught new agents how to operate with honesty and integrity in his 2011 industry classic,  The Honest Real Estate Agent  . And he’s continuing to educate agents through his podcast of the same name.

This podcast is particularly useful to new agents who are learning to navigate the industry. It isn’t always perfectly clear what is, and is not, considered ethical in every situation. For example, is it ethical to leave your business card on the counter of a listing after taking your buyers through? It’s actually a hard question to answer. Some agents see this as a courtesy to let the seller know the home was shown as scheduled. And some agents see this as the buyer trying to steal the listing from the listing agent. The Honest Real Estate Agent podcast offers guidance for working through gray areas like this.

Examples of topics covered in recent The Honest Real Estate Agent podcast episodes:

  • Are You a Professional Door Opener?
  • My Time, My Life
  • How Many Times Have You Touched Your Sphere

Just like his book shared the specific scripts Kevin used to get his real estate clients and prospects to say yes, his podcast goes into the exact wording you can use to get the yes you’re looking for.

And he covers almost every situation you’ll encounter as a real estate agent: overcoming buyer objections, explaining to sellers why you’re not willing to reduce your fee, presenting your buyer’s offer to the seller. You’ll be able to confidently guide every real estate conversation like a seasoned pro, even if you’re new to the industry.

  • Your First 30 Days as a Real Estate Agent
