Become a Market-Proof Closer

Sales Pros:
Is A Hot Market Masking Your Biggest Weakness?

Ryan helping participants

For most real estate sales teams, times are good. The housing market is on fire: inventory is sparse while demand is at an all-time high and, for most companies, sales are soaring.

Sounds great, right? There’s just one problem. A hot market doesn’t last.

As they say, a rising tide lifts all boats. But even the smallest pullback immediately exposes shortcomings that can leave you stranded high and dry.

If you truly want to be an effective sales professional—someone capable of withstanding the inevitable fluctuations in the real estate market—it is your job to make yourself completely market-proof.

“It’s only when the tide goes out that you learn who has been swimming naked.”

– WARREN BUFFETT

Are You A Market-Proof Closer?

Amy helping particpant

So, how do you know if you’re unprepared for a shift in the market?

Here are the warning signs:

  • The closing process often makes you uncomfortable—like you must be pushy or manipulative to close effectively.
  • You feel like you are spending too much time with clients before closing the sale.
  • You feel like leads often leave your sales office only to end up buying from a competitor.
  • You don’t feel like the closing techniques you were trained with are modern, relatable, or customer-centric.
  • You worry that, despite a hot market, you are still leaving lost sales and $$$ on the table.

Those lost sales that you are missing out on are the sales you will desperately need when the market isn’t so generous. And those are exactly the sales you will learn how to close at the brand-new Closing 2.0 Academy.

The Closing 2.0 Academy is an intensive, 12-week learning cycle where sales professionals MASTER the modern art of closing the sale in today’s market with today’s buyer.

What’s the secret? For starters, you’re not going to learn scripted closing lines and antiquated car-salesman tactics. Like it or not, that way of closing a sale is long gone. Instead, you’ll learn how to sell the way your buyer actually wants to buy. You’re going to be an ally for your buyer instead of an adversary. Your clients will see you as their hero, not the enemy!

Our promise: you will walk away from the Closing 2.0 Academy with the necessary tools, confidence, and a thorough understanding of “buying psychology” to close more sales, faster. You will truly become a market-proof closer!

At Jeff Shore’s Closing 2.0 Academy You Will Learn Exactly How To:

  • Sell more by focusing first on your customer instead of your product
  • Feel more like an expert advisor or a trusted friend to your prospective buyers (become your customer’s hero!)
  • Track and measure your customer’s emotional altitude so you deliver a close built on confidence, not fear
  • Develop the right closing mindset and discern exactly when to deliver the final closing question
  • Shorten the buying cycle by setting up the close on visit one
  • Replace that “awkward closing moment” with a balanced, strategic sales process
  • Use scientifically-proven, psychology-based methods of influence and persuasion (without getting tagged as “high pressure” or “used car salesperson” on social media)
  • Make the final close easy, simple, and NATURAL — we don’t do canned lines or cheesy “closing techniques” here!
