As a real estate broker, expanding your sales team is crucial for business growth. However, managing a larger team comes with new challenges. Developing strong sales leadership abilities is vital for successfully scaling up your brokerage. This article provides valuable tips on leading a high-performing real estate sales team as your brokerage grows.

Hiring the Right Salespeople

When searching for new sales agents, aim for candidates with a proven track record of ambition, enthusiasm, and sales triumph. Give priority to those who have demonstrated their ability to deliver results and excel in their role. Consider offering a commission-only compensation structure that is directly tied to sales objectives and performance. This will ensure that your new hires are fully invested and motivated to achieve established benchmarks.

Don't bother with the futile attempt to strictly "hold accountable" your experienced salespeople. That kind of micromanagement usually ends up blowing up in your face. Instead, shift your focus to understanding what truly motivates each member of your team. Discover their passions and purposes beyond just making sales. Then, tailor your metrics and incentives to align with these intrinsic motivations. This fosters accountability to their core motivations, rather than just short-term metrics.
