How They Won: Secrets of Winning Real Estate Pros

COVID-19 and Changing Brokerage Companies with Andrea Geller

March 23, 2020

Today’s interview is a first for How They Won. I am interviewing a guest for a second time.

In mid-February of 2020, I posted an interview with my friend Andrea Geller from Chicago. Andrea shared 20+ years of knowledge and insights aimed primarily at real estate industry veterans. It was a pretty wide-ranging conversation with lots of great take-aways.

Shortly after that interview, Andrea made a big change in her business and ended up affiliating with a different brokerage. There’s not a lot of information and guidance out there on how to change brokerage companies (other than my interview with Brian Carothers from Pittsburgh. If you’re listening to this episode, you might want to go back and listen to that one too.)

Anyhow, with such limited information out there, Andrea kind of had to blaze her own trail. I thought it would be valuable to talk about what that was like while that experience is still fresh in her mind.

Andrea has been a VERY successful real estate agent for a very long time. Moving her business from one brokerage to another was a big deal for her and I am so grateful that she is willing to share what she learned during that process with everyone listening!

I work really hard to keep episodes of How They Won timeless, rather than timely. Be that as it may, I thought it was important to touch on the current state of affairs in the world that we are all going through together – namely, the COVID-19 pandemic. During my conversation with Andrea, we touched on some of the things that she is doing to keep her real estate business moving forward at the moment the episode was recorded. As you can imagine, the situation and best practices are fluid and change not on a weekly, or daily basis, but hour by hour and minute by minute. From me to you, I wish you good health and all the best during this crisis. We’ll get through this like we always do – together. I’m going to leave my comments at that for now, but I have been and will continue to share more timely thoughts and ideas on social media if you care to follow along and join in the conversation.
