Real Geeks Reviews: Shannon Amdahl- Eugene Realty Group
We sat down with Shannon Amdahl, owner of Eugene Realty Group to learn how she utilizes the Real Geeks platform to close deals throughout Eugene, Oregon.
About Eugene, Oregon
Lakes, rivers, and the wonderful University of Oregon are some of the gems one can find in the city of Eugene. Whether you are looking for a condo downtown where everything is at walking distance, a big lakehouse out in the countryside, or a 2-bedroom with an ocean view, the city has an abundance of property types for everyone.
This isn't Shannon's first rodeo. She's been in real estate for 17 years, and as soon as she landed in Oregon, she knew she was going to build a real estate team in Eugene.
It's easy to take the first step when you know exactly where to place your foot. And given her previous experience in Arizona, Shannon was certain:
"I knew where I had gone right in the past, and I definitely knew where I had gone wrong.", as she puts it.
It was crystal clear in her mind: she needed a technology partner. She needed a great front-facing website that converted well, but also a backend system that connected seamlessly to that website.
She explored several options until she found us: "Real Geeks had all of that, plus it was really affordable compared to other systems."
Not only that, but Shannon found it extremely easy to use, which hadn't always been a given in the past: "I pretty much built all the pages myself!"
The Right Team
Once she had the foundations in place (website + backend), it was time to build a team. And that's when Shannon looked at Real Leads.
"It was so easy to recruit, because agents would sit down with me and I'd tell them we were getting 1000 leads per month", she explains. "Where else were they going to go after hearing that?!"
That allowed her to hire over 50 agents quickly. Not only that, but she was able to hire the right agents - those who could focus on closing the highest amount of leads as possible.
"The system was the driver behind everything - it helped me to recruit great agents, but also maintain them."
A New Chapter
With over 50 agents as part of her team, Shannon was doing hundreds of transactions a year.
And as she puts it: "Anyone who has experienced these numbers knows it's a lot of work."
So then came the time for a new chapter in her life. With her massive success in real estate, she decided to scale back her hours by setting up a coaching practice to help other agents and brokers in their journey.
"I now mostly do referrals" she tells us, as she winds down and enjoys the passive income life.
RealGeeks has been with Shannon through each phase of her journey.
From building a team in a brand new city, to growing that team exponentially and achieving a massive volume of transactions, to scaling back and allowing for a better work-life balance in this new stage of her life.
And she's more than happy to share her experience with anyone who wants to find out more about the platform.
"If you'd like to learn more about RealGeeks, I'd be happy to talk to you. I've been using it for 8 years, I've had great success with it, and I absolutely love the platform."
How You Can Achieve Shannon's Success
Let's break down the 3 key aspects of Shannon's strategy to go from a team of 1 to a team of 50+ with hundreds of transactions. In her own words, she combined:
- a high-converting website people want to browse through
- a fully integrated backend
- a source of high-quality leads, every single month
She highlights point number 3) as a major component of her strategy, because it allowed her to easily grow her team.
Why? Because it allows you to optimize for finding the people who will close the highest amount of leads as possible, instead of investing most of their time in trying to find them.
That's what Real Leads does for you. It completely takes care of sourcing high-quality contacts that want what you're offering, so that you or your team can focus on what you're really good at: building lasting relationships and making them profitable.
