Today we’d like to introduce you to Adam Olsen.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story?
At the age of 18, I ventured into the real estate industry and it took over seven months to sell my first property. From that point forward, I typically sold 2+ properties per month. Four years later, my organization has become one of North Houston’s top real estate teams.
It hasn’t always been easy, as there are many ups and downs in the real estate industry; 15+ hour work days and sometimes 7 day work weeks. Most people don’t understand the time, energy, and money that is invested in helping clients buy or sell their property. The goal of the Adam Olsen Team is to ensure our client’s needs are met in every aspect of the transaction. Per the National Association of Realtors, the average realtor in the U.S. only sells three houses annually. The Adam Olsen Team is projected to have nearly 100 closings in 2017.
I am a firm believer in personal development and a follower of motivational speakers. A valuable lesson I learned was to anticipate the future. I’m always looking for the next opportunity or great marketing idea to help me excel in the real estate industry. A favorite quote is “the happiest people don’t have the best of everything; they make the best of everything.” When I experience a low or a tough situation, I generally try to remove the emotion to think logically and focus on the solution and not the problem.
Our online marketing and advertisements, consistently running on a daily basis, has helped me achieve success in a short amount of time. Our extraordinary marketing tactics have enabled me to reach over 36,000 followers on Facebook, with over 500,000 Facebook views each month. This strategy has helped us build the strong and influential brand and presence we have in the North Houston Markets.
Has it been a smooth road?
The path to success has not been an easy road. As stated previously, it took seven months to sell my first property after I failed repeatedly. I’ve also had to contend with overcoming concerns regarding my young age.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with The Adam Olsen Team – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Our team specializes in Residential, Commercial, Farm & Ranch Real Estate, as well as business brokerage transactions. I personally have almost ten years experience in the show livestock industries and have shown livestock all over the nation. My experience in this arena allows me to understand the needs and concerns of clients who are looking for farm/ranch property. Our team has sold properties in every facet of real estate, including strip centers, warehouse buildings, bars and grills, Schlotzsky’s franchises, commercial land, multiple farms and ranches, residential houses, hunting ranches, luxury homes, and investment properties. We are known for our online marketing presence with over 36,000 active followers on Facebook.
I live in Huntsville and I am also the #1 listing agent in Huntsville. Per The Huntsville Item newspaper, I was voted the best realtor in Huntsville for 2017, and #16 in the Houston Council of Realtor’s for RE/MAX LLC for the first quarter in 2017.
The Adam Olsen Team has had listing featured on HGTV twice and we have been featured on Pursuing Results out of San Diego. Our Team is an official sponsor of the Sam Houston State University Bearkats.
The National Association of Realtors states that 98% of property buyers search online for their next property. With this information, and our outstanding and strategic marketing presence, we run numerous online ads, reaching on average 200,000 to 750,000 people monthly on Facebook. Facebook amounts to approximately half of our business and we also reach approximately 20,000-30,000 people monthly on my personal website, www.adamolsenteam.com
When marketing your listing, we ensure it is listed on HAR, Zillow, Realtor.com, Facebook, my personal website, and over 2,000 different real estate websites.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I like the diversity and strength of Houston and the greater Houston area. Houston is the 4th largest city in the nation, with the fastest growing county in the U.S. (Montgomery County). I don’t believe there’s any area in the country with as much opportunity as we have in the Houston area. As we witnessed the community rally together during and after the tragic Hurricane Harvey disaster, it is obvious that the people are who make Houston and the surrounding areas great. We witnessed neighbors helping neighbors without any agenda, judgment, or hate. Those acts of kindness, strength, and courage shown by Houstonians are truly inspirational and our country needs to see that now more than ever. There is no doubt that the Houston area will continue to develop and become stronger and better in the years to come.
