Great Reads for Great Agents

Hello and welcome to my new real estate training and coaching video blog! On this blog, I will share with you the keys and strategies used at The Lars Group that have given us the advantage to dominate our market. The Lars Group is always looking for ambitious, hard-working agents to join our team. If you are interested in becoming a member of The Lars Group, give me a call at 704.800.1200 or email me at

Today I wanted to go over books we have used because they’ve proved to be very helpful. The first book I wanted to mention is a book we just recently went through together and it’s called The Energy Bus by Jon Gordon. This book outlines 10 laws or rules to get the most out of life and work to ultimately build a team environment. This book was a hit in our office because we have many agents who are competitive and sell a lot of homes, but in the end it’s all done for the good of the team.

The second book is called The Traveler’s Gift by Andy Andrews. It’s an awesome book that details 7 decisions that determine personal success. This book is a quasi-guide that we use to hire agents with. What’s special about this book is that it reads like a fable, so it is very easy to grasp and it provides a very cool way to run our team. Another book, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, is the cornerstone of personal development books and encourages you to turn your thoughts into reality.

Our last book, one that we really work through as a team, is called The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick M. Lencioni. This book also reads like a fable and is really cool because it relates your team to family, which we are here. We appreciate open communication, challenging each other and accountability.
