For the last ten years, Erik Hatch has been a full-time realtor. Today, he also runs a successful coaching business, helping others create systems and teams so they can scale. He lives and works in Fargo, ND, and started out in real estate part-time while he was working as a minister. Erik has properties nationwide and is about to open his sixth market in Minneapolis, MN. He’s built such a successful team over the years that now, his business pretty much runs without him. Many people want to make more money by working less, and you can only do that by hiring a team of great individuals. Eric believes in empowering and lifting people up over just delegating tasks.
Erik Hatch and Gavin are in some of the same masterminds and together, they discuss what it takes to build and run a successful real estate team. They also talk about some of the challenges when it comes to hiring. Much like today’s dating world, people look for instant gratification when hiring. Making a quick decision on hiring someone without doing your due diligence is a decision you might regret. It pays to take your time, and Erik’s hiring process is lengthy for a reason. He doesn’t want people who are interested in real estate as a get-rich-quick scheme. If people make it all the way to the end of his interview process, then Erik knows they’re serious about working with him. By getting a potential hire to relax and go off script, you can start to get to know them as a person. Solid references are key when building out your team. It’s important to crack that outer shell and get to the truth of what it’s like to work with someone.
Erik and his partner, Robby have a book coming out called “The Perfect Real Estate Agent Blueprint”. Check it out along with more info on his business by heading to his website below.
