Two Mike Ferry Leaders Launch Their Real Estate Careers with Coldwell Banker Premier Realty

Coldwell Banker Premier Realty proudly welcomes two new real estate professionals to our team. While these agents may be new to Coldwell Banker, they are well known, and better yet, well respected in the Mike Ferry community. It would make sense that they would align themselves with the company best equipped to assist them in achieving success in the Las Vegas real estate market.  

Ron Cronin, former Vice President of the Mike Ferry Organization, has trained thousands of agents worldwide on how to achieve success in real estate sales. He is now putting this valuable knowledge to work in his own business. First, by selecting the brokerage that best aligns with his value proposition and supports his efforts to implement the Mike Ferry System which is recognized as one of the country’s best practices in real estate sales training and coaching. Ron will also be sharing his experiences as he continues to coach a full schedule of agents from across the country in achieving and exceeding their personal and professional goals.  

It is an honor to welcome Ron back to where it all started as he began his real estate career with Coldwell Banker Premier Realty back in 2009! Ron’s energy is contagious, and we are excited for our existing and growing sales force who’ll be able to synergize with Ron and his efforts to reclaim his stake in the Las Vegas real estate industry. 

We are equally excited to welcome Michelle Ferry-Cronin, Mike Ferry’s daughter, and former Mike Ferry Sales Director. While Michelle has been working in the real estate industry her entire adult life representing the Mike Ferry Organization, she considers herself a rookie as it pertains to listing and selling real estate. She wanted to associate with a company that embraces the MFO philosophy with the ability to support her growth as a new agent. We are pleased to extend the depth of our unique tools, support and brand recognition to ensure her inevitable success in the industry.  

Why did this dynamic duo choose to make their home at Coldwell Banker Premier Realty?

Press Release

After decades of supporting a steady flow of commercial transactions, Coldwell Banker Premier Realty formally opens a second company – one which is dedicated entirely to servicing the multifamily, land, office, industrial, and retail real estate needs of Southern Nevada. Even amongst a global pandemic, this firm is continuing to grow. Its official expansion into the non-residential sector allows the brokerage to leverage its experienced commercial sales professionals to a greater extent while utilizing the broader resources of Coldwell Banker Commercial.

“We’ve always offered commercial real estate services,” said Molly Hamrick, managing broker of Coldwell Banker Commercial Premier. “But now we are uniquely positioned to cultivate this branch of our business while working with some of the top commercial professionals in the Valley.”

Naseef Cuff Investment Services Group, led by Tom Naseef, recently returned to the Coldwell Banker brand after 10 years specifically for the opportunity of launching the new commercial company at Coldwell Banker Commercial Premier.

“We felt this was the perfect platform to be nimble and enterprising,” said Naseef. “One of the many things we like about the brand is it has a global presence with local power.”

Naseef previously owned a franchise with Coldwell Banker Commercial from 1999 to 2010 and is excited to be back in blue.

While an economic downturn was not originally part of the commercial unveiling, the brokerage is no stranger to surviving the ups and downs of the market. Most of the firm’s commercial professionals have experience that pre-dates the Great Recession and many have seen Las Vegas double in size. This deep local knowledge and experience during major economic disruptions is important when advising investors and tenants, particularly during the present time of uncertainty.

“We are seeing many investors escape the stock market and grasp opportunities in real estate because it is a low-risk venture,” said Bob Hamrick, co-founder of Coldwell Banker Commercial Premier. “Commercial real estate in Las Vegas is unique, dynamic and increasingly important regionally.” If you need assistance with buying, selling, or leasing a commercial property, or for more information about Coldwell Banker Commercial Premier, visit their website at or call 702.701.9700.

How to Become a Successful Real Estate Agent

Guide to a successful real estate career

How to Succeed as a New Real Estate Agent

A recent article by Housing Wire describes that there has been growing interest in the real estate field since the pandemic. We especially see this in Las Vegas, where people are looking to change careers and start an essential business. People will always need to buy and sell real estate, so even though we have all had to adjust the way we do business, this industry is thriving. It is crucial to keep in mind real estate can be a dynamic and limitless career; you get out of it what you put in.

If you have not yet enrolled in real estate school, we partnered with Key Realty School to provide attendees with available discounts. There are 3 options available relative to the 90 Hour Nevada Real Estate Pre Licensing course: Classroom, Home Study, and Online Only programs. Prospective students are encouraged to review all three delivery options to better select the program that will work best for their needs.

If you are in school or have recently earned your license, keep reading for 6 tips on succeeding as a real estate agent and differentiate yourself from the competition.

Choose a Brokerage That is Right for You

Above anything else, you must get a feel for the company culture. You will be happier and more successful in the long run if you enjoy the people you work with. The following questions will also help decide which brokerage is right for you:

  • What level of support do you provide to new agents?
  • What technology solutions to your offer?
  • Do you offer additional tools and training?
  • How is a commission paid to agents?
  • What is the per agent productivity in your office?
  • What is your average agents’ sales price vs. other brokerages in your area?

Create a Plan for Success

If you want to start your career on the best foot possible, you should create a business plan, like any other entrepreneur. In your business plan, you want to outline your goals, establish a value proposition, identify how you will find new clients, and devote time to developing your skills. Business planning is so vital that we created “Businesses Planning Month” at Coldwell Banker Premier Realty every November. Agents can attend workshops, meet with their branch and sales managers for guidance, and pair up amongst themselves to provide accountability.

Practice Makes Perfect

Starting in a new field can be intimidating. Where do you start? What do you say to attract new clients? The answer is role-playing! Role-play provides you with the scripts of what to say in different situations and it helps build your confidence! Each week, our campus branch managers host a script practice to help you nail a listing or buyer appointment each time.

Get Your Systems in Place

A client relationship management program is essential to laying the foundation of your business. Once you import your database into our CRM tool, you can add your clients to weekly and monthly email campaigns created by the marketing department keeping you top of mind with your SOI (sphere of influence).

Know Your Market

One way to demonstrate your value as a new agent is to know what is happening in the market and how it affects people looking to buy or sell a home. Learn how one agent used our analytics department and training to go from nurse practitioner to top-3 sales associate in a little under two years.

Build Your Social Media Presence

The world of real estate is always changing, and establishing an online presence is vital! Content marketing is one of the best ways to attract and attain clients. With our weekly workshops, personal branding packages, and free automated social media scheduling platforms, not only do we empower you to leave your mark on the world of real estate, we make it as simple as possible.

Are you still reading? We hope so because that means you are already invested in your success, and so are we. Let’s get started! Text your name and zip code to 702.672.7644 to have one of our career mentors reach out to you to schedule an appointment.


Having Better Conversations Can Help Grow Your Real Estate Business

How to have a better conversation

As a real estate agent, it’s important to make sure your clients walk away from every conversation feeling valued. This causes them to become loyal to your business and more likely to refer you to their friends and family. When you connect with your clients, you are also more in tune with their wants and needs, allowing you to better assist them in buying or selling a home. Forget what you’ve learned in the past and watch this TED Talk, where you will learn how to hold a great conversation by being a better listener.
