Ep #25: How to Build the Perfect Team: The Do’s and Don’ts with Nathan Dart

My next guest on The Richard Robbins Show started door knocking with his father at just 8-years-old. A second generation real estate professional, Nathan Dart always knew he would work in real estate. He considers RE/MAX Conferences “family reunions” and started selling real estate just days after graduating college.

Though it was a childhood dream come true, he never knew how difficult this industry could truly be. “My first year in real estate I sold 35 houses. I had zero balance in my life; it was just straight hustle, I didn’t take many days off [and] I was working 14 hours a day, 7 days a week.”

Today, working just 28 weeks a year, Nathan is Team Leader of Dart Homes in Maryland, D.C. Metro, and is responsible for just 3 things in his business: Generating leads and building relationships, coaching and training of the Dart Homes Team and listing appointments.

His ability to systemize and pinpoint these priorities has changed his life. “It gives me the confidence and the security of knowing that, ‘if I just do this, I can create what it is I want to create.’”

Overlooking Times Square in New York City, Nathan and I chat about his transformation from buyer’s agent to team leader, his transition from a people-dependent business to a system-dependent one, and the importance of pushing your boundaries and following fear to take you places you never thought imaginable.

Please enjoy this strategic chat with a dear friend of mine, Nathan Dart.

On this path I’ve recognized, any step that i have to take, if there’s not fear in front of it, then it’s not the one I should be taking. The path of fear is the one that is going to take you to a place that you never thought was… Click To Tweet
I was looking for that one thing that was going to fulfill my life. I recognized there is no one thing...it’s the journey, it’s not the destination. @DartHomesTeam @RichardLRobbins Click To Tweet
I wasn’t relying on ‘who is going to do it for me?’ I kept thinking about ‘how can I get it done?’ and that was a dangerous and weak place to be. @DartHomesTeam @RichardLRobbins Click To Tweet
