If you read the title of our latest episode, you may be wondering why a software company would be asking for advice from a real estate company, but the answer is simple. At BrightGauge, we often hear questions from our community asking for advice on building, managing, and growing sales teams… and almost everyone faces the same challenges no matter what line of business they’re in.

We asked Gabe Martin to join us for a conversation based on his experience as Sales Manager for one of the highest-ranking residential real estate sales teams in the United States. Gabe has the answers to all the questions we hear so often: from recruiting based on personality types, to managing the day to day and weekly responsibilities, focusing the team’s efforts and much more. So whether you’re running a MSP or any other business, you’ll be able to gain some new insights and ideas about your own sales team.
