The 1% blueprint

How You Can Master The Art of Selling Luxury Real Estate

We’re here to help you build your real estate empire.

We’re James Harris and David Parnes, and we’ve been blessed to have achieved tremendous success in our real estate careers - including starring on Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles and facilitating $850 million of transactions in 2023.

But getting there wasn’t easy. We started out in the US as two Brits with no contacts, no listings, and no idea how we were going to make it.

At this stage in our careers, we want to share our wins, our mistakes, and most importantly, our learnings with agents just like you in order to have you break through into the top 1% of your market.

We’ve been in your shoes.
Let us help you get into ours.

No matter your market, BREAKING into the 1% is hard

We hear from agents every day:

  • I'm not generating enough leads to fill my pipeline
  • I leave money on the table for myself and my clients in high pressure negotiations
  • I struggle with articulating my personal brand consistently to attract new clients and retain those I already have?
  • The market conditions are too difficult and I don’t have a way to consistently sell in a down market
  • My real estate career is not leading to the life of financial freedom that I want

If this is you, we get it. We know this industry is tough, and this market is even tougher. That’s why we created The 1% Blueprint - to give you our tried and true systems that got us to where we are, through all kinds of challenges and market downturns. We’re here to help you, every step of the way.

“I've worked with James and David at The Agency for the better part of the last decade and have seen their amazing growth in the luxury market. Their skillset and approach to client relationships is something that I think everyone can learn from; regardless of where you sell or how long you've been in the business.”

Mauricio Umansky

CEO of The Agency

Among many other things, James once told me that real estate is like surfing: it comes in waves. So when you’re on the wave, ride the shit out of it. With his support, I’ve ridden the wave to $100m+ in sales.

The 1% Mindset

Whether you think you can or you think you can't - you're right. Real estate, especially in the luxury market, requires a focused, relentless, and unshakeable mindset in order to achieve success. In this chapter, we'll teach you our approach and methods to building your 1% mindset. Lessons and worksheets in this chapter include:

  • The foundational principles of building a 1% mindset and how to apply them to yourself.
  • A worksheet to assess the current 1% in your market and identify how you can learn from them.
  • Our CHOP method to keep yourself centered and focused on implementing mindset changes.
  • Learn how to take your fears and any sense of unhealthy competition out of the equation, and spin them into competitive advantages.

Understanding The Market

Knowledge is power, and if you are not the absolute source of knowledge for your clients, someone else will be. In this chapter, we'll share our approach for becoming a trusted advisor with your clients, as well as knowing when to stop over-analyzing and to pull the trigger on a decision. You'll learn:

  • What information we rely on for deep knowledge of our market, as well as each neighborhood and individual listing.
  • A checklist to ensure you are going into client meetings and negotiations well-equipped.
  • Our framework and approach to mindset we use to overcome analysis paralysis and to make decisions.

With a deep understanding of your market, you'll be prepared to get started on what every agent should be thinking about every day: how to fill your pipeline.

Generate More Leads

One of the foundational principles we've built out business around is that, regardless of how many listings or deals in escrow you have, you should always be spending time on activities that help build your pipeline. In this chapter, we'll share:

  • The key aspects of executing differentiated and irresistible marketing in the luxury real estate space.
  • Marketing methods we've used over the past 15 years and what we believe provide the best return on investment.
  • Our experience, philosophy, and approach to door knocking, which has been the single most impactful initiative we've built out business through.
  • The framework to run open houses that not only get your listing sold, but serve as additional lead generation, as well as a checklist to ensure each one is memorable.

We'll have you ready to run out the door to get new leads, but before you do that, you'll want to dig into the next chapter to complete The Blueprint training.

Reputation and Negotiation

In luxury real estate, your reputation is absolutely everything. How you are perceived by your clients, your prospects, and even other agents has a tremendous impact on your ability to generate and close business. In this chapter, you'll dig into:

  • What makes up a personal brand in the luxury real estate market, and how you can craft yours.
  • Our full branding toolkit, vetted by our own Director of Marketing.
  • The approach we take into every negotiation, and how to create win-win situations (and future clients) in a luxury deal for everyone involved.
  • What we believe every agent should be doing daily, mentally and operationally, to win in a down market.
  • How consistency and organization are the hallmarks of a succesful agent who works with luxury clientele.

Once you've completed the course work, you're off and running to build the luxury business of your dreams! But we'll continue to support you with monthly Q&A sessions, as well as our peer-to-peer community.
