Why So Serious? Relola's Q+A With TBA (The Broke Agent)

Why So Serious? Relola's Q+A With TBA (The Broke Agent)

 

The Broke Agent

We nagged...a lot.

But who wouldn't want to meet the minds behind some of the greatest real estate memes to grace our facebook feed? We finally connected with the broke agent founders, wes pinkston and eric simon at the 2015 nar Expo and decided it would be fun to collaborate on something.

This is the result of that something.


What is the Broke Agent?
A real estate comedy brand that captures the inner monologue of a real estate agent in a crazy industry.

 

How’d TBA start?
Two entrepreneurs in real estate had some beer and realized there was a need for some comedic relief in a traditionally stale industry.

 

Let’s face it, people don’t like agents. How do we as real estate agents build value and trust again with consumers?
Connect with clients on a personal level. If they like sports, talk sports with them. If they like yoga, take them to a vegan restaurant.

 

There’s a lot of real estate tech out there right now. As a broke agent, what qualities should we be looking for so we back the right pony?
Back us. We are the only tech start up/pony that is taking a completely different perspective to the industry that nobody has seen before. We are on pace to be the number one comedy brand in real estate and will eventually be a staple in the community. Give us money!?!?!

 

If you could only advertise your listing one way what would it be?
A funny YouTube video.

 

Do you ever write offers for relatives?
I offered my dad a chance to pay my rent for all of 2016. He declined.

 

If you could work in any market right now, where would it be and why?
Maui. Because Hawaii.

 

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter? MySpace?
Instagram.

 

Is the Broke Agent ever not Broke?
We are not broke haha. It is a state of mind that everyone has a little "Broke Agent" in them.

 

Who’s your celebrity look alike?
Ross, Chandler, and Joey.

 

If you could star in a music video, what would it be?
We already do. Checkout out "The Intro" Broke Agent rap on Youtube.

 

How many properties per year should you sell in order to convince yourself not to quit real estate?
100, but I would still consider quitting.

 

Who is your ideal client and why?
A young couple, all cash, no contingencies, with a sense of humor.

 

Who would you rather work with as a buyer: Barbie or She-Ra? Why?
I just looked up She-Ra. She looks like she has more of a wild side than Barbie. So... her.

 

Who cyber stalks The Broke Agent?
Hopefully hot Title Reps (girls) and other hot agents (girls).

 

What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever seen in a listing?
A 12-gauge shotgun laying across my seller's bed.

 

As an agent which should you attend with your client:
A) their kid’s t-ball game
B) their personal folk art gallery opening
C) the Star Wars premiere in full cosplay
D) All of the above

If they like Star Wars you can bond at a whole different level.

 

An agent is serving Chipotle and it’s late on broker’s tour, do you eat it?
Anytime there is free Chipotle you eat it. I don't care how old it is.

 

Will it be sunny tomorrow?
It will be partly cloudy in the morning. However, the UV index will be around a 3 so it still may be possible to get a little color before the weekend.

 

True or false?
How is this even a question it makes absolutely no sense.

 

How many piña coladas does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
Same answer as above.

 

Koala bears - yes or no?
Yes... to hunt.

 

What is your favorite TV show?
Curb Your Enthusiasm.

 

Can you swim?
Obviously.

 

Christmas music: Yay or Nay?
Anything with Sinatra.

 

Spiders: squish, squash or save for later?
Consume

 

Create an award for an agent.
The realest agent award (open for interpretation)

 

Should I use the Relola promo code 10FOREVER which expires January 4th to get an account that will allow me to save my career and become the top producer in my area, and which will allow me to grow wings if I want to but not if I don’t for $10/month forever unless I cancel or my credit card expires?
This sentence is impossible to read.

 

What would make a great stocking stuffer for the agent in your life this holiday season?

The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English.
