Being a great leader requires many skills and components to succeed with your team and business.
In today’s episode of the Tom Ferry Podcast Experience, I had the opportunity to talk with Mary Lee Blaylock, President and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties. As one of the most respected and knowledgeable leaders in the real estate industry, Mary Lee shared a vast insight into successfully starting, growing and taking your real estate business.
Mary has an extensive and amazing real estate career, from being Vice President of Edina Realty Inc. to Vice President of HomeServices of America to her current role in Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. She opened up about her first year of real estate and the hurdles she had to overcome to grow her real estate career and being a young woman and leading a team of older real estate professionals.
In this illuminating conversation, Mary Lee provided her valuable insight on working smart, how to become a great leader, and preparing your team to be ready to pivot for any upcoming changes that the market can present.
As a powerful leader, she also shared how she manages to focus her time as a wife, mother, and CEO. We also covered the importance of learning the inside out of the company you are growing, refining the skill to say no, and developing your career in your company.
If you’ve been thinking of taking the next step in your career or opening your own business, then this episode is for you! As always I took a bunch of notes and I know you will too, so share with me what golden nuggets you’re taking from Mary Lee to take your leadership skills to the next level.
