D. I love to coach those new agents who sign on to work with me
Ryan Huggins - Thousan...
Thousand Oaks, CA
D. Had one (actually three different ones sequentially) and wasn't satisfied with the interaction.
How about D - I used one, it was terrific for my business and the only reason it ended was she moved on to something else
James Hoff - my answer is A.
And for those who answer B, believe me, it's an investment.
For those who answer C, hats off to you.
I compare real estate coaching programs to weight loss programs. Some people need that support and guidance to accomplish things and others don't. I'm not a fan of coaching.
The best coach I ever had was a good friend who is an amazing businessman with no real estate experience - other than having bought and sold houses. But I've never really cozied up to a professional real estate coach.
You could check out Tim and Julie Harris' site and their real estate version of Think and Grow Rich.
A.!!! Buffini & Company since 1999. It's WAAAAY more than coaching!
My answer would be C. Have never felt anyone from the outside could motivate me to do what I need to do. Have to have the internal drive.

D. I had one and don't want another
My coach was my first broker, now retired & good friend. Later I spent many years coaching agents in my company.
James I did have coaches for years when I first entered the business - probably for about 10 years or so. Then I moved into finding coaches for specific areas - ie internet marketing back in 08 as I had no clue what to do back then. I've also been a coach for years.
D. Have had one in the past, and do mentor others when needed.
How about D?
I've had a few but none of them worked out. I wasn't getting what I needed. At this point I can't afford it if I could find the right one.
C. I am self motivated and know what I need to do to keep my biz running at the tempo I like.
D: I could probably use a coach, but don't feel like going through the hassle of hiring one.
For me C. Reasoning: Grew up in the Mike Ferry organization (litterally) and my father was one of their coaches for a while. Now if I need a coach I just go to dear old dad.
D. My broker/owner IS a true blue real estate coach and will meet with me whenever I'd like.
A and well worth it
Real Estate Coaches ....NOT FOR ME.
I do have a non real estate related coach ... a business coach.
my pick is C... I also do mentoring....
D: I AM a real estate coach
I have not used a coach but have shared techniques with several of them.
Had one early on - not now
All need to coached, guided, counseled and nurtured when starting out
James Hoff D. In-house mentoring programs are more productive and cost effective for the agent.
Coaching works for some and too expensive for others!
I have a coach; Sandy
D. I am the coach around here, though somedays I am sure I could benefit from a coach too.
How about who wants to be a coach or mentor?
I will coach new agents on those want to listen.
I had one but they knew less than me and were old school and did not work for me. Coaches are good-we all have them, some of them internal, but pick one that helps in a specific area you want help in-leads, internet, web, etc. because a generalist takes too long to make a dent.
How about D. I had one and found it not very useful?
I think, having someone who mentors and pushes you is beneficial for anyone. I'm with B.
C - I am my own coach!
C. I know what I SHOULD do, whether or not I actually do it is my fault and won't be changed by someone else telling me I should do it.
A. Business/RE Coach - FYI. We have agents from OC that are in our group. Might want to check it out if you are thinking about it.
C. I have enough life experience and get enough great idea right here
I am number 3. I have established mentor relationsings over the last 27 years of real estate.
