In his 4 years as a BDM, Deniz Yusuf signed-up over 900 properties and achieved 34 average listings per month (in his final 18 months on the job).

Now together with his coaching over Australia, New Zealand and the USA, Deniz now assists his clients collectively to generate over 10,000 leads and more than 300 managements on average per month.

Deniz will launch the day with this first action-packed session:

  • View the exact KPI’s (Key Performance Indicators) that are benchmarked and used to achieve these results.

  • Learn unique strategies that are educating owners prior to the listing presentation, closing fast the time between the first contact and the ‘where do I sign?’.

  • How to impress your prospects with the ‘wow-factor’ before they’ve even met you so you become the obvious agency of choice - right from the start!

Session Two - Darren Hunter

GET noticed BIG TIME using Facebook to become the agent of choice in your marketplace.

How to use Facebook effectively to grow thousands of qualified ‘likes’ and reach your audience. Know how to be the perceived market leader even if you’re the smallest agency in town and generate a regular flow of warm, qualified leads.

In 4 years Darren has amassed the biggest and most ‘liked’ PM Facebook page in Australia and New Zealand with over 15,000 likes. It didn’t happen by accident. It was a result of careful strategy, posting the right content, testing, measuring and research and having a budget for ‘like’ ads and boosts.

In this session Darren will reveal how you can become the recognised and perceived leader in your marketplace using Facebook with your business page.

Using Facebook seriously is no longer optional and when your competitors haven’t got a clue on how to use it properly, this session will give you the edge to surge right ahead of the game. You’ll learn:

  • Ten highly engaging post strategies that will make your prospective clients want to use your services.

  • See different kinds of videos that’ll grab the attention of your prospects, and make them perceive you as the market leader.

  • How to write an effective Facebook ad that will generate hundreds and possibly thousands of quality, qualified likes.

  • Learn how to load your email prospect list directly into Facebook and send ads directly into their news feed.

  • Receive an email after the event with instructional videos that have been created exclusively for this session.

  • Why you must educate, inspire and motivate your audience with engaging posts to succeed at Facebook. Anything else is just wasted time, energy and noise.

Session Four- Darren Hunter

The Highly Effective TEN Strategies, Scripts and Methods to overcome Discount Requests and the Biggest Fee Objections.

These strategies, scripts and methods for overcoming fee objections will give you a MASSIVE confidence boost to win the business AND keep your fees. It will keep cheaper competitors poor and ramp up your rent roll growth in 2017.

You will always get discount requests and objections with your fees. It’s the way you respond that determines your success!

In this fast-paced session we deal with every major fee objection you’ll likely ever encounter so you can respond with confidence instead of fear, and enthusiasm instead of complying with discounting.

  • Use the #1- The Alternative Cost strategy to confidently deal with ‘if you can match your fee with the other agent down the road’ and know how to apply this method to justifying nearly ALL your fees.

  • Understand the #2- The Hourly Rate strategy to easily justify your inspection fees and other time based fees when you hear ‘But why do I have to pay for X’.

  • When you get hit up with ‘the other agent will give a discount so why can’t you?’ you can respond in confidence using the #3-The Best Negotiator script and strategy.

  • Quickly dispel the myth you’re ‘too expensive’ with your management fee by bringing out the ‘#4- The Cup of Coffee’ strategy.

  • Look forward to getting the ‘but the other agent will do it much cheaper’ objection so you can respond with the effective #5- Matching Services script and strategy.

  • Conquer the ‘but the other agent is only charging X%’ with the powerful ‘all-rounder’ strategy and script #6- Competing on Service.

  • Launch the #9- The Greatest Asset strategy when you’re asked ‘Why can’t you do it any cheaper?’ common objection.

  • Know if you’re dealing with a ’c-class, money tight’ owner upfront and test them with the #10- The Cheapest Agent in Town script, so you can identify and possibly avoid them right from the start.

All about Deniz Yusuf.

Bradkay - Denniz-173.jpg


Deniz does not come from any academic background. He was a business owner in Nowra on the South Coast of NSW in the Shoalhaven district, just a few hours’ drive south of Sydney.

Deniz was a ‘fruito’ for most of his working life after he left high school. One lesson he learnt on the job is “There’s no emails in Fruit!” If a new coffee shop opened, Deniz had to call them or go and visit them to get the business. It is this mind set that has made him a successful coach in the BDM space.

Deniz believes the real estate industry has the same concept - it’s all about asking for the business and what experience you can give your clients. He says real estate is not just about collecting rent and charging a fee, but about what services and product you can provide your clients, and how much money you can save them by using you or your services. Deniz enjoyed being an agent and now loves showing others how they can succeed to.

Deniz now consults, trains, mentors and key-note presents to agents across Australia, New Zealand and the United States, through the Inspired Growth Training Program with BDM Coach. Deniz finds training agents to achieve the best possible outcome they can is very rewarding. “Seeing them achieve their goals or win awards they never thought they could, it inspires me to be an even better Coach. My goal is your future, as I inspire, I get inspired”.

Deniz strives at assessing real estate teams and finding the ‘blockage’ in an office that may be stopping them from achieving the new business numbers they desire. He says most of the time offices can be so close to getting it right, and it’s just a matter of tweaking a thing or two. After it is fixed, it is then about continued consulting and mentoring so they can become the best in their field.

The impressive line-up of clients that Deniz has consulted and presented with include the largest conferences in Australasia & Unites States: Realestate.com.au, The McGrath Group, Property Management Conference (Formally known as the Wealth Conference) PPM Group, First National PM Conference & State Regional training, Inspectrealestate Masterclass & Power On Seminars, LJ Hooker, Harcourts PM Conference, REIWA, REIV, REIQ, REISA through to the BDM Coach Two day Inspired Growth Conferences, as well as PM Grow Summit & NARPM chapter Key-Note presenting in the United States + many more.

His focus is now growing other people’s rent rolls, and mentoring agents to become market leaders in their area.
