Traits of a Successful Agent
Instructor: Patrick Lilly

Experience has shown me that successful real estate agents share several traits and behaviors that separate them from other agents. Being aware of what you do well and what you could work on will enable you to reach your goals more quickly and efficiently. We will spend the morning on discovering those facets.

Patrick Lilly wears many hats: successful New York City real estate broker, educator, transformational life coach, speaker and world traveler. Curious by nature, Patrick likes to explore other ways of thinking, feeling, living and being, which ultimately allows him to serve his clients’ best interests.

Through his organization Real Estate Success Rocks, Patrick hosts an annual conference and a weekly podcast for agents. He is also the founder of Real Estate Vision (REV), an educational and networking group for top producing agents. Patrick is a frequent speaker at conferences and seminars throughout the world. A consistent theme in his talks is the creation of practices that nurture both your soul and financial well-being.
