Ep. 173: Doors Open When You Knock

Originally from Southern California, Steven Ross began selling real estate there in 2005, and after moving to Colorado in 2009, he built another real estate practice from scratch.

Steven says that he was the “worst type of person to be a real estate agent” because: He’s an introvert.  He doesn’t work nights or weekends. You can’t find him online (at least up through 2020). He doesn’t do parties or events. In fact, he’s completely antisocial.

Yet he built a successful real estate business twice by doing one thing and one thing only: knocking on doors—over 125,000 of them. In addition to selling real estate, Steven has spent the last 20 years studying and helping people move forward in the areas of life that are important to them.

Steven joins the Calibrate Real Estate Podcast this week to talk about his new book, Doors Open When You Knock, and what he’s learned after knocking on over 125,000 doors.

This is not one more book with tips and tricks to double your business overnight.

Real estate can take people by the horns and toss them around.  Doors Open When You Knock is about wrestling control back so that you can leave chaos and uncertainty behind, creating a business and a life that brings joy and fulfillment.
