How can you make your mark in an over-heated and intensely competitive real estate space? 

There are few people who can answer this question better than our guest for today, the badass realtor, Matt Davies who has set up a thriving real estate business in five short years.

On today’s show, Matt shares his wisdom on real estate marketing, client prospecting, and vetting new real estate investment deals.

Back in 2014, when Matt decided to make the transition from waiting tables to real estate, he had to overcome his limiting self-beliefs.

Additionally, he opens up his sales playbook and reveals how he invests in relationships for long-term gains.

“The deals that I get to do are from my relationships with people and the cool people that I get to know. And so much comes from the compound interest, you know, and one of the cogs in the wheel is doing brokerage”.

“Now's not the time to pull back or take a break or be scared. Now's the time to really shine and lead and guide and help”.

“So selling is not telling. It's asking good questions. So, you need to ask good questions, like a medical professional would, and I am an MD”.

“If you don't know what a top plate or a bottom plate is, or, you know, how the order or the sequence of  new construction, you have no business developing 100 unit apartment complex, or even an 18 unit apartment complex.
