Ep #26: 2 Hours a Day Is All It Takes to Win with Debra Bain

My next guest on The Richard Robbins Show is Broker/Owner of the #1 RE/MAX brokerage in the world. Debra Bain’s real estate career spans over thirty years, she is an expert recruiter, savvy business owner and a recognized authority in the real estate industry.

Alongside her partners Ken McLachlan and Steve Tabrizi, Debra is currently focused on their 1700 agents in 28 different offices around the country, closing 22,000+ yearly transactions.

Her success wasn’t inherited though. When her mother passed away from lung cancer, Debra was motivated by her father to enter the real estate industry at the young age of 21.

Sitting with Debra along the iconic Las Vegas strip, we talk about her journey from aspiring small-town photographer to a real estate industry icon. Debra shares her advice for holding the perfect open house, tells me why prospecting is the number one activity every entrepreneur must do and how having confidence in yourself can take you places you never imagined.
