My guest in this episode is Pat Hiban. After being labeled “learning disabled with speech deficiencies” in the 2ndgrade Pat struggled through public school and graduated college in 1987 with a 2.6 GPA. After college, Pat jumped into the sales industry with the least barrier to entry – Real Estate !!!
In his first year Pat struggled and almost quit making a little over $13,000 in commissions. For the last 30 years Pat has been heavily involved in the Real Estate industry as both, a top agent, broker and investor in residential and commercial properties. Throughout his career he has sold over one billion dollars in Real Estate including over 500 homes in a single year and 14 homes in a single day. He has been recognized by both Re/Max and Keller Williams as their number one agent in the world!
In 2010 he sold his team business to his longtime partner, Mike Sloan and went on a book tour to promote his book “6 steps to 7 figures: A Real Estate Professional’s Guide to Building Wealth and Creating Your Destiny”. With the help of an introduction written personally by Gary Keller, the book went on to sell over 20,000 copies and hit #6 on the New York Times Best Seller List and #1 on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. He is an active investor with over 40 lines of passive income (mostly Real Estate).
In 2014, Pat launched his podcast “Real Estate Rockstars” which has had close to 3 million unique downloads by Real Estate Agents from 108 countries. He currently owns and operates Rebus University and Big Profit Agents which are training platforms for active Real Estate salespeople.
He has 2 daughters in their 20’s and resides in Folly Beach South Carolina with his wife of 25 years.
