Let us being with.

#1. What are you REALLY passionate about?
The wrong answer is real estate. The right answer must be what effects those who do are want to sleep under a roof they own.

#2. It is the presence you project, instead of the words you craft that will engage the listener. Before opening the mic. strike your Power Pose.

#3. BE CONTROVERSIAL - this will separate you from the talking heads that sedate the listener.  When I say controversial, I mean what are your listeners talking about in get into their conversation. Social Media has made this research a 10 minute research effort.

#4. Of course the cheapest and most reliable method of getting response is FEAR.  Begin with the entrapment awaiting when those solar sales folk knock on the door.

#5. Safety - reveal how correct selection of house can offer a financial safety net, meaning offering many  options if the owner finances hit a few speed bumps. OR, a means to save for collage tuition or turbo-charge that retirement account.

#6 Each of the preceding five come in 20 flavors. That should be sufficient.

I like Candice A. Donofrio's idea and would expand on it further with "Real Life vs. TV - What Really Happens When The Cameras Aren't Rolling"  or something to that effect.  Basically that there is more going on in the months that a transaction can take than can fit into a neat 20 or 40 minute show.
