A 7-Step Blueprint for Building Your Profitable, Sustainable Business


REALITY CHECK

Real Estate Isn’t the 
Simple, Lucrative 
Business You Thought
It Would Be

...Instead, It’s a Daily Struggle to Attract Leads, Compete for
Listings, and Close Enough Sales to Make Ends Meet
You could keep chasing dead-end leads, hoping clients will appear, and 
wondering when you’ll actually make money—that’s what most new agents do. 
(And it’s why most new agents give up within a couple of years.)
Or you could…learn proven, practical ways to get more leads, more listings, 
and more sales—all while building a pipeline of happy clients, 
eager to send more business your way.
Most new real estate agents have ONE big question…

“I have my real estate license. Now what?” 

Let me guess...you got into this business for the pros: 
  • Unlimited income potential
  • Flexible schedule
  • Being your own boss

But it isn’t quite what you hoped it would be…

And you’re eyebrow-deep in the cons:

The burden of finding leads is all on you. Aside from drumming up business from long-lost family members, awkward cold calling, and stalking the expired listings, you’re at a loss for how to get leads.

Even when you land a client, you’re still on shaky ground, afraid you’ll be blindsided by any number of deal-breakers, and bracing yourself for another lost sale, sending you into a slump for several days or weeks!

You’re not sure of the best way to take the client on the buying journey, from start to finish—the journey that ends with a sale on the books, a commission check, and a happy client. 

And you find yourself picking at the leftovers, as you watch your flashier, more experienced competition snag another listing. 

The biggest problem—you are working too hard for too little. You’re struggling to bring in enough income, and hustling way too hard for what you’re earning.

Underneath it all? Your confidence takes a massive beating and it
is keeping you from creating the business—and life—you want.

And some days, if you are going to be totally honest, you feel like quitting…
I get it. I’ve been there. The good news is you don't have to stay there. 

Why Spend Another Day Second-Guessing Your Career Choice...
When You Could Fast Track Your Success With a Solid Foundation 
and a Plan to Move You Forward

The quicker you stop focusing solely on the leads and sales feeding frenzy, and start focusing on being an advocate for your clients, the quicker you’ll build a real estate business that lasts.

The secret to success in this business:

It’s not about the sales. It’s about the clients.

Your job is more than closing a deal. Your job is to be that trusted advisor, to advocate for your clients.

And it’s your ability to navigate the complexities of dealing with humans—and their emotions, fears, needs, desires—that makes you or breaks you in real estate.

Happy clients make your real estate career.

What if you knew exactly what to focus on every day?

What if you had a long-term plan—beyond immediate lead-gen and this month’s revenue—a trajectory for your career and business?

What if you could keep a steady stream of leads flowing to you with tried-and-true prospecting approaches and a marketing plan that actually works?

It’s possible...but “working harder” isn’t going to do the trick. 

Because being busy does not equal being successful. 

Your success isn’t measured by the number of showings you do, or the number of leads you have, or even by your sales stats... 

Success is measured in satisfied clients.

There are new real estate agents, just like you, who are building their reputations and building their businesses.

What do they know that you don’t?

Turns Out, There Is a Right Way (and a Wrong Way) to Set Yourself Up for Success in Real Estate...

The Wrong Way

  • Expecting to be fully prepared for reality, parachuting into the real estate field fresh out of licensing, hoping someone will tell you what to do
  • Self-sabotaging by only focusing on NOW, only planning for the short-term, and thinking you might not be in this business that long anyway
  • Being laser-focused on leads, leads, and more leads, without knowing what to do to turn those leads into clients, let alone what to do once you get a client
  • Jeopardizing client relationships by not listening to their needs (Example: showing your client 16 downtown condos, when he told you his dream home is a two story farmhouse on a 10-acre lot)
  • Struggling in silence because you think this should be easier, and you should be able to figure it all out on your own

The Right Way

  • Developing confidence in yourself as an agent and business owner, which leads to your clients feeling confident in you too
  • Cultivating genuine relationships through listening, understanding, and always having your client’s best interests at heart
  • Becoming a problem solver who knows the in’s and out’s, the unwritten rules, and can anticipate issues before they cause a stress-headache for the client (and for you) and cost you the sale
  • Building a reputation and brand that positions you as an advocate for your clients, a trusted advisor—someone they’ll return to and refer new clients to again and again
  • Asking for help when you need it because the most successful people have coaches, and you don’t have 10 years to make this work—you need to make it happen now

Hi, I’m CatherineRichardson,

and I’ve been where you are now...

When I launched my career as a real estate broker in 1998, there was a lot at stake.

I was a single mom who had walked away from my corporate job—and a steady paycheck, health benefits, a retirement plan, and paid vacation. I walked away from security and a job that bored me to tears every day. 

There I was with the weight of that decision on my back, and I had no idea how the real estate business worked.

Sure, I had my license—and all of the knowledge that comes along with it—but I didn’t know where to start, or how to “behave” in the real estate world.


Hi, I’m CatherineRichardson,

and I’ve been where you are now...

When I launched my career as a real estate broker in 1998, there was a lot at stake.

I was a single mom who had walked away from my corporate job—and a steady paycheck, health benefits, a retirement plan, and paid vacation. I walked away from security and a job that bored me to tears every day. 

There I was with the weight of that decision on my back, and I had no idea how the real estate business worked.

Sure, I had my license—and all of the knowledge that comes along with it—but I didn’t know where to start, or how to “behave” in the real estate world.


I had a lot of questions...

“How do I get more listings? How do I get better at my job? What do successful real estate agents know that I don’t know?”

But I found few answers in the training that was available to me (And the pro agents weren’t sharing
their secrets either.)

I didn’t know how to build a successful business that would pay the bills immediately AND withstand the moods of the market.

I did know that I never wanted to be chained to a corporate job again.

My first year of income came 100% from listing FSBOs, and I sold one buyer a home. I was new in town and didn’t know anyone. I had no one to rely on but me, and I was determined to make it. 

I spent years learning the business, while hustling on the job. I built a foundation on which my business could grow and evolve, and I crafted a reputation based on respect, expertise, and a genuine desire to help my clients.

Since then, I’ve buckled up for the ride through many different markets: a seller's market, a buyer's market, a down market, an up market, and a market crash.

Twenty-one years, and $200,000,000 in sales later...I’m ready to bring all of my best strategies, tactics, tools, and insider knowledge to you.

When You Start with a Solid Foundation, You Gain Confidence, Clients, and Momentum

(and you lose the struggle, insecurity, and fear)

What if you knew exactly what to focus on every day to make the real estate business of your dreams your reality?

You’d know how to get leads—without depending on extravagantly priced lead-purchasing schemes that guarantee absolutely nothing…

You’d consistently turn leads into prospects and prospects into clients—without a single high-pressure sales tactic or trick...

You’d attract ideal clients, cultivate long-lasting relationships, and get repeat referrals—without wasting your time (and money) on marketing tactics that simply don't work (refrigerator magnets, I’m looking at you)...

You’d skillfully guide your buyers and sellers through every step of the process—without being blindsided by the inevitable pitfalls of the process...

You’d be proud of the reputation-based brand you’re building—without succumbing to the lure of putting a sale over your client’s needs...

You’d have a vision for your business, a revenue plan, and a clear trajectory for success—without feeling overwhelmed and insecure about your future...

All of this it might seem out of reach right now, when you’re working hard, but not seeing results (not enough listings, not enough buyers, not enough leads). And I know you might feel like you’re on your own.

I also know it’s possible to get what you want: a profitable and consistent real estate career. Now. 

That’s why...

I’m sharing my step-by-step blueprint, so you can set yourself up for long-term success in real estate

(as quickly and painlessly as possible).

Because when you have a proven plan, you can…

PAST CLIENT








Catherine is the most exceptional real estate professional that I have ever had the opportunity to work with. She walked me through my first home-buying process (which can be a stressful undertaking) with immense knowledge, precision, and always keeping my requirements in mind. Beyond that, she acted as a strategic advocate on my behalf throughout the entire process from beginning to end, acting as an advocate during my lending process, partnering with me to plan accordingly for upcoming costs, and was readily available any time I had a question or concern.
