To be honest it more like the answer the bank robber gave to the question, "Why do you rob banks?" "'Cause that's where the money is!"

The data showed where the money was. My specialty derived from knowing  their problems, frustrations, obstacles and observations.

Located adjacent to the Gulf of Mexico, I find the need to have in-depth knowledge of coastal real estate and able to explain CCL as well or horse properties. 

If I were coaching a new agent, I would advise to NOT specialize in types of real estate but in defined and specific solutions. Not in ownership types but location.

The power of the sharing economy is pressing the real estate industry to adopt a new mindset regarding what today's informed buyer and empowered owners expect.

Venture Realty International - Las Vegas, NV

My specialty is international referrals and consulting. 

I am semi-retired and no longer want to be tied down to one location.  I found a need to help agents place referrals, especially in other countries.  An agent can certainly do it on their own but if we work together, I can almost double the amount of closed referrals.  Even when an agent is a member of a large franchise -- placing referrals is usually a guessing game for them.  I have placed so many referrals that I know what to look for in another agent and how to follow up on referrals.

I also find that there are often questions on international moves that I can answer of if not, i know where to go for answers so the consulting fits right into the business plan.

Best of all, I can work from my phone and computer any where in the world.

Retired Agent / Broker / Property Manager

As an active agent, I specialized in a price range.  As Annette Lawrence , Palm Harbor, FL 727-420-4041 quipped... "that's where the money was".

As a real estate coach, I work with a range of agents but I specialize in helping new agents.  It's not where the money is but it is where the need is. Thankfully, I have a retirement income to live on and I can do what I am passionate about.

Exclusively investors for the last eleven years with a short detour into short sales after 2007. I started in a repo market in 1989 so half of my clients were investors. I liked how clean it was even though I am not a math whiz obsessed with numbers. If it hits the return they buy and I am also able to do bulk sales. When I sold 61 homes in one day at a seminar in 2005 I was hooked.

Richard,

 

People refer all types of buyers and sellers to me so I take care of all of those. I “specialize” in luxury and lifestyle properties and commercial. That came from advice I got to move up in price and my background in commercial finance.
