07 Dec Top Real Estate Agents: In any Market be the BIG Kahuna
Market Kahunas Draw the Best Leads Possible
I was driving by a familiar area in town one day and noticed that a large 14 acre ranch was up for sale. Right in the heart of my town. Very rare and valuable land. I wondered how many millions it would go for in the market right now.
The For Sale sign was from Daryl King, a top millionaire realtor in this area (he has a small army of 34 agents working for him now), at least tops in selling high value properties (a great niche). The property owner has many other superb realtors to choose from, however they chose Darryl King, one of the top real estate agents in North Toronto.
This happens frequently in other areas of business where people choose whoever they think is the “BIG Kahuna” in the market. It’s probably why Donald Trump sits on a mountain of cash. Despite his horrible personality, real estate executives want to work with him. When the idea of selling a luxury house comes to mind, so does Daryl King’s team.
It doesn’t seem to matter whether they’re like Mother Theresa or Genghis Khan, the BIG Kahuna’s get the business. More people are drawn to who they believe is the top dog, rather than choosing someone who is more in line with their true interests and situation. BIG Kahuna’s make the most of wide visibility, authority, and opportunity. They leverage everything from advertising to partnerships to after-sales support to ensure everyone believes they are the best and will get them the best price.
BIG Kahunas pursue marketshare, aiming to monopolize any market they can. And monopoly, arguably, is the goal of most millionaires. Of course, excellent branding and marketing can help move toward a type of uniqueness that is monopoly. By hiring me, you are very likely to dominate your city market. Be the BIG Kahuna.
Show You Believe what They Believe
Foremost in the matter of choosing the BIG Kahuna is the belief they’ll ensure success via their network, skills, or marketing power. So begin to develop a BIG Kahuna image yourself and they’ll believe in you. Good incentive to brush up on brand image strategy.
It’s one of those buyer core beliefs worth looking closely at. Simon Sinek says people will buy from you if you believe what they believe. Big estate owners believe Darryl King has similar values and beliefs, and he is singly most able to get that extra one or two million dollars, and that he might be networked with multimillionaires. Maybe he isn’t.
Buyers and sellers believe the BIG Kahuna has the connections, selling power, persuasiveness and klout.
The BIG Kahuna removes the fear and paves the way to a big sale price. Big Kahunas seem to get rid of all the pain (okay, it’s the Witch doctor that actually does that:)
King has been a top real estate agent and broker for a long time and of course over the years has built a lot of connections whom he has likely groomed. And he has 34 realtors on his own team — a telling sign of a BIG Kahuna.

And a lot of what is digital marketing today is barely understandable as marketing anymore.

In the realm of high priced real estate, Adwords, Facebook, and Linkedin Ads are used more to dry up opportunities for competitors.
