Ep #66: Creating Connections in Your Community with Tony Joe

My next guest on The Richard Robbins Show considers his volunteer work within the community just as important as his thriving real estate business; one cannot succeed without the other.

A top producing Team Leader and sought-after RRI Business Coach, Tony Joe has been involved with RRI in some capacity since 2002. Based in the beautiful city of Victoria in British Columbia, Tony, along with his Buyer Agent, reached 157 transactions in 2021.

With such a prosperous business, you would think that 100% of his time is spent on his thriving real estate business. You’d be wrong.

“Half of my waking hours are real estate related; the other half is within the community.”

Tony tells me that community work and volunteering opportunities have transformed his life and his business. “I count that as my circle of influence. We have repeat and referral, you’ve got prospecting, agent referrals, and I consider community work part of our sphere of influence which makes up 36% of our business.”

Tony’s advice is simple: “Start giving your talents. There is so much we can give back.”

In this episode of The Richard Robbins Show, Tony and I discuss the power and opportunities of volunteering within your community. Tony provides insights on how to begin in your community, and he offers a no-brainer idea that could change your business forever.
