On this week’s show, I spoke with Jordan Stuart, founder, and CEO of Next Move. He’s a seasoned agent who’s an expert in closing transactions with athletes. He’s recently branched out into helping people in the military find homes across the country.
We talked about various topics from what not to do when working with a professional athlete, getting referrals and testimonials, smart strategies for delivering 5-star service, and the importance of having a clean car.

"The biggest mistake an agent can make is not listening to their client.” -Jordan Stuart
Three Things You'll Learn
Buyers need a trusted advisor:
When working with an athlete they’re counting on you to be the expert advisor. You need to able to understand and evaluate your client’s wants and needs so you can speak their language and provide them with a logical action plan. Be an active listener. How you communicate with them should not be any different than how you treat your regular clients.
- Celebrity endorsements and testimonials:
First, make sure the deal is done, the home has closed. Get them a nice closing gift. Then humbly ask for a testimonial, and respect whatever the answer is.
Focus on what you can do for the client:
Remember, the minute you make a recommendation to a client (whether it’s a home inspector, contractor, etc.), you become responsible for that experience - positive or negative. Focus your job, and everything else will work itself out.
