3. Super Agents Live
Super Agents Live is hosted by multi-million dollar serial entrepreneur Toby Salgado. He has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs and real estate agents with his one-on-one mentoring.
Toby Salgado is a huge believer in using radio as a real estate marketing tool. Though he admits that radio doesn’t have the reach, nor the appeal of new media such as Youtube or social media, it is still very effective in its directness and intimacy.
Super Agents Live podcast features the techniques and strategies used by top-producing real estate agents that consistently sell over 50 million a year in volume, with celebrity guests such as Tom Ferry, Chriss Voss, and Ross Jeffries.
4. Real Estate Rockstars
Just like Tom Ferry, there’s a very good chance you’ve heard of Pat Hiban and his podcast Real Estate Rockstars.
With over 4 million downloads and a very active fan base around the world, Pat Hiban is one of the most successful real estate podcasters in the world.
Not only does he share a wealth of information on how to make more sales, earn higher commissions, and getting more done, he has the experience to back it up.
With over a billion dollars in sales and more than 7,000 homes sold in his 25-year career, he now spends his time helping others become successful agents and investors.
And if that isn’t enough to convince you to check out his podcasts, his gusts will. He has interviewed Barbara Corcoran, David Osborn, Robert Kiyosaki, and many others.
5. Bigger Pockets - Real Estate, Money and Business Podcasts
If you’re a real estate investor, have any clients looking to invest, or are simply interested in what opportunities are out there, you have to check out Bigger Pocket’s podcasts.
Bigger Pockets Money focuses on giving you financial education that “you didn’t get in school including tips for getting your financial house in order and actionable advice from guests who have been in your shoes - and found their way out.”
Bigger Pockets Business is all about offering great information on starting your own business, learning to run it, market it, choosing the right niche (which is essential in real estate) and so much more.
Finally, there’s Bigger Pockets Real Estate. It covers pretty much every aspect of real estate through interviews with real estate investors, entrepreneurs, and top producers.
It has a casual, informal format, that the podcast itself describes as “imagine you’re friends with hundreds of real estate investors and entrepreneurs. Now imagine you can grab a beer with each of them and casually chat about failures, successes, motivations, and lessons learned.“
6. GSD Mode
GSD Mode (which stands for “Get S*it Done Mode”) is a podcast, as well as a philosophy, created and hosted by Joshua Smith. Smith stresses cultivating discipline and a laser-like mental focus as absolute essentials in succeeding in life, not just real estate.
Simply put, Smith is an overachiever. He was voted Wall Street Journal's 30th Top REALTOR® in America and has coached and mentored thousands of real estate agents around the world.
If you’re a fan of the Joe Rogan Experience, you’re going to love this podcast. It’s straight to the point, brutally honest, and doesn't mince any words.
7. Marketing School With Neil Patel & Eric Siu
While neither Neil Patel nor Eric Siu have any experience as real estate agents (as far as we know), you should definitely check these guys out. Why? Because Neil and Eric are marketing geniuses.
Neil Patel is a household name, and one of the leaders in the digital marketing world rivaling the likes of Gary V.
Marketing school provides bite-sized podcasts, chock-full of actionable tips and strategies, all of them under 10 minutes. They cover topics ranging from the latest techniques in increasing your website’s organic traffic, economic trends, how to be more effective with a small team, and what they would do if they had to start from scratch.
Many podcasts, coaches, and marketing experts take a high-energy, arms wildly flailing approach to their podcasts and video content.
They focus on techniques for achieving high success, super-quick, and their enthusiasm makes you believe that not only is it achievable, but it’s also actually easy.
Not Tyler Sheff, former US Marine, and founder of Cashflow Guys. He offers a sober, yet no-nonsense approach to building passive cash flow, as well as overcoming problems common to real estate agents and investors.
He understands that a long-term strategy for success in any business requires an aptitude for lifelong learning, especially in an industry with unpredictable markets, lots of competition, and the need to capitalize on the latest and greatest lead-generation methods.
He interviews industry leaders in real estate, finance, and investing, and strives to educate its listeners in time-tested methods of building wealth and gaining financial freedom.
9. Real Estate Today Radio
Real Estate Today Radio is the most “traditional” of all podcasts in this list. It is the official podcast of the National Association of REALTORS®(NAR), and it’s hosted by 5-time Emmy award-winning journalist Stephen Gasque.
Gasque is NAR’s current Director of Broadcasting, and also the host of NAR’s video newscast “The Voice for Real Estate.”
This podcast covers the latest national real estate stats and news, and everything from home buying tips for first time buyers, new rules and how they will affect agents, the best time of the year to sell a home, etc.
While this podcast is aimed primarily at working REALTORS®, the general public can also benefit.
Books are obviously great learning tools, but podcasts provide nuggets of wisdom which are byproducts specific to a spontaneous conversation with respected industry veterans.
10. Real Estate Uncensored
Real Estate Uncensored is co-hosted by Bay Area REALTORS® Greg McDaniel and Matt Johnson. It delivers actionable ideas to turbocharge your real estate career, as well as expert wisdom from some of the country’s top real estate agents.
Particularly of interest is the podcasts’ emphasis on using high-tech, systems and cutting edge sales and marketing strategies to leverage your time, and get more done.
For example, it teaches you how to make over 100 calls an hour, how to master scripts and prospecting systems that can sell over 500 homes a year, and so much more.
But as the name indicates, this is not a stuffy, overly scripted or politically correct podcast. It can be pretty crude at times, though it's always entertaining. If you're ok with that, by all means, check it out.
