Five Tips on How to Become a Successful Team Leader

On Episode 291 of The No Limits Selling Podcast, we have Mike Chou, Founder, and Principal of The Chou Team, a partial Owner of Keller Williams Executive in South Pasadena, California. He launched his real estate career in December 2008 during one of the biggest recessions in U.S. history. In an industry where there is an 80% failure rate, Mike made a commitment to become the #1 agent in the nation to help others meet their real estate goals. Proudly closing 35 transactions and over $10+ million in sales in his first year, Mike has since become one of Southern California’s most successful real estate agents. Trusted by peers, associates, and clients alike, he is now ranked in the “Top 100 Agents in the Nation.”  He has 16 team members.
