Floyd Wickman's Economic Recovery PlanJan 10, 2012
The Floyd Wickman Recovery Plan may very well have the biggest impact on the real estate community—and our country—than anything I’ve ever done because it’s designed to jump start the U.S. economy with a $6.6 billion jolt and change the lives of thousands of real estate professionals. I know my plan sounds ambitious, and I don’t think any of us have been involved with anything with the word billions attached to it, but I just may be onto something really, really big.
Now, I know there’s going to be some soothsayers out there who think I’m crazy and wondering, “Who does Wickman think he is?” But no one ever built a monument to a critic and I don’t think we’ll ever know what kind of impact we can have in such important areas unless we try.
If you’re still in doubt, get a hold of me and I’ll try and explain how we can do this.
I’m calling 2012 The Year of the Sales Professional because I truly believe that with the right tools, training and motivation, salespeople will lead us out of the economic downturn.
I know we can make a difference. Won’t you join me?
Let’s connect and I’ll show you how you can make at least one additional sale per month. I know this will help your economy, and now, through the Recovery Plan, we can help the national economy.
Here’s how it will work:
I’ve reached out to the real estate associations in the 10 hardest hit states and offered my services for a full day of free training. If I show 500 agents in 10 states how to sell one additional home per month, that’s 5,000 agents selling 60,000 more homes.
Think of the commissions that will generate.
Here’s where the huge economic impact comes in: The National Association of REALTORS® says the national average for a home sale is $164,200. Let’s take just half of that, $82,100, and times it by the 60,000 homes sold. This would generate $4.9 billion in sales.
And now, multiply that by the amount NAR says a real estate transaction creates in economic activity, 1.34, and we’re talking about a $6.6 billion economic shot in the arm for our country!
As a Navy veteran who’s spent the last 40-plus years in real estate and sales training, I have great faith in my country and the power of America’s economic engine. That’s why I’m taking my Recovery Plan a step further.
As an additional stimulus, I’m donating 10% of all of my product sales nationally to the REALTORS® Political Action Committee to focus more attention on real estate as a key economic engine. Plus, I’m donating another 10% to the Military Housing Assistance Fund (link to www.usmhaf.org) to help returning veterans buy a home.
On top of that, I’m reducing the cost of all of my training products, videos, etc. by 10% as an incentive for agents to really jump start their careers at a time when our economy needs them the most.
I’m excited because I know we can make a difference, a huge difference in the lives of real estate agents, their clients, and our country. I hope you’ll say: “Count me in!”
