Ep. 297: Working with luxury buyers (with J.B. Andreassi of Million Dollar Beach House)

Lessons on Self-Reliance

J.B. Andreassi from Million Dollar Beach House shares what he’s learned about trusting himself

Who should listen: Fans of Million Dollar Beach House, luxury agents, and new agents in any niche—you’ll find entertaining stories and sound advice about how to approach new listing opportunities.

Key idea: Not everyone will encourage you to move in the direction you want to go. Go anyway.

Action item: Understand that confidence comes from preparation and repetition, so study your market every day.

J.B. Andreassi is one of the star agents in Netflix’s popular show Million Dollar Beach House, and in this week’s Stay Paid episode, he talks about how he got into real estate after working with the National Hockey League, some of the lessons he learned early in his career, and what it’s like catering to the needs of the uber-rich. In addition, J.B is still young enough to remember what it was like to be a newbie, so he also offers advice to new agents about finding leads and preparing for presentations.

As is sometimes the case, this is another podcast episode where the value of what our guest has to share can’t be adequately captured in the show notes. We recommend you listen or watch the episode to enjoy the stories, catch the details revealed in the banter, and generally appreciate the qualities of a good conversation.

When you do, we suggest you give special attention to J.B.’s comments about discovering and coming into his own identity—one that’s separate from how his family and friends see him—and learning to trust his own decisions, find his own values, and not be intimidated by or compare himself to others.

It’s during these moments of J.B.’s interview when some of the entrepreneurs in our audience might recognize themselves.

Even under the best of circumstances, it’s difficult and takes courage to break out on your own to follow your dream. That journey is made even harder when friends and family try to dissuade you from following through on a decision they see as too risky. Motivated by their love and concern for you, they don’t want to see you fail.

But those who love you the most, motivated as they are to protect you, are not always the best judges of what might be best for you.

Please enjoy this episode, and we’d appreciate it if you would give us a five-star rating and leave a review on Apple Podcasts. (Not sure how to leave a review? Click here.)
