Head-to-Head: Take 2–The Top 10 NEW Mistakes Salespeople Make with Leah Turner

It is always better to learn from the mistakes of others.

How have things changed in the course of only 1 year? What are the mistakes new home salespeople are making, perhaps as a result of current market conditions? More importantly, how will that impact their ability to pivot as the market makes a dramatic shift again due to continued supply chain shortages and rising interest rates. Grab your lunch and something to take notes. This episode is packed from stem to stern and you won’t want to miss a minute. To learn more, please visit NewHomesSolutions.com/Head-to-Head.
