  Make DEI a reality in your brokerage now  
Natalie Davis presents at the NVR state conference last year.

If you ask Natalie Davis, founder of The Evolution Group in Denver, with a little work, creating an office environment where everyone feels like they belong can happen quite quickly. All it takes is a commitment to diversity, equality and inclusion and a few tangible action steps to get started. As we gear up for the 2023 Broker Summit in Kansas City, Mo., we’re taking a look back at the Bias Override co-facilitator and speaker’s presentation on creating a DEI blueprint for your brokerage.

Davis will speak at the upcoming Region XI Conference in April in Reno. As she got started, Davis made it clear that DEI is not a political issue, but rather “a way to foster a sense of belonging in your business and in your community.” With a commitment to creating a culture of belonging, brokers are well equipped to represent the entirety of their communities and lead a team of agents capable of doing the same.

  Expired listings are back -- Call them and close them  

The expired listing is the most qualified, free lead in our industry, yet it is the least prospected. Probably because agents tried it once and when it didn’t work, they gave up and proclaimed, “I am never doing that again…that sucked”…and sadly, ended up waving off the expired listing lead as ineffective or not worth the effort. This is so wrong.  I am here to tell you that I built an entire business on expired listings and have taught thousands of agents to effectively prospect, win and sell more expireds a month and a year than ever thought possible. 

You just need a better, more effective strategy. My strategy will get you an appointment 8.5/10 times. Now that’s impressive. It means more actual results and more importantly, more closings and more income to your bottom line. Click here to read more of the RisMedia article.
