Ep #59: Buying Back Your Time: How to Leverage Your Money for Time with Amy Flowers

In this episode of The Richard Robbins Show, I sit down with a woman who has mastered the art of leveraging her money for something even more important: Time.

Amy Flowers, team leader of The Amy Flowers Team in Milton, Ontario has been selling real estate for over 17 years, has the #1 team in Milton and is #7 in Royal LePage out of over 18,000 agents.

With all of her experience building successful teams, I wanted to know exactly how she did it.

Amy’s first and most important step was surprising. “First, I would go to, why? Why are you thinking about building a team? If you’re a really good real estate agent and you love dealing with transactions and selling houses, I would suggest you want to rethink that.”

Amy provides clarity on not only how to build a team, but also if it’s the right career path for you.

In this episode of The Richard Robbins Show, Amy and I sit down and talk about the perfect blueprint for building yourself a team. Amy will guide you through the ins and outs of hiring, training and the proper compensation structure. On top of all of that, we discuss the importance of using your money to leverage your time in order for you to see massive results in your business.

We have always been very support heavy. I don’t think there has ever been a time at the Amy Flowers Team where we’ve had more salespeople than we do support staff. @AmyFlowersTeam @richardlrobbins Click To Tweet Just because you’re a good real estate agent, does not mean you’re going to be a good team leader. @AmyFlowersTeam @richardlrobbins Click To Tweet My passion was never selling real estate.
