Negotiate Your Success

Effective negotiation. It's a vital skill you need to learn in order to achieve success, and the satisfaction of all parties, in real estate, in your professional life and in your personal life.

Effective negotiators know how to arrive at an outcome that satisfies the needs of all parties to a transaction. It is powerful knowledge for you to possess, whether you are a sales professional in real estate or other industry, or indeed work in any business or human organization.

Mastering effective negotiation tactics will also serve you well in your personal life. That's because life is all about resolving differences in the give-and-take of interactions among people of diverse, often competing, interests. Learn to negotiate effectively for what you want, and you'll become happier and more influential in your relationships with others.

Negotiation Is Not About Compromise

During more than 30 years as an academic expert on human behavior and as a successful real estate broker-owner, Tony Portararo, Ph.D. learned a lot about the decision-making processes that people use when negotiating transactions. He noticed that when most people negotiate, they view compromise as the key to achieving a win-win solution. They believe that something must be given up in order for something to be given in return.

This approach, Tony knew, actually makes it harder for people to negotiate effectively. After all, take the typical real estate transaction. The buyer wants the lowest price and is not willing to pay more, while the seller wants the highest price and is not willing to accept less. No wonder so many of the real estate agents Tony observed did not negotiate well.

Negotiation: The Complete Story

Instead of compromise, a different emphasis was needed. Through his research and experience, Tony found that to become effective negotiators, people need to understand the full story of negotiation based on the facts of human behavior during transactions. He developed the insight that negotiation should be conducted not as a process of compromising, but of "wrapping". Effective negotiators, he found, don't focus on making or requesting concessions but on blending the goals of all parties into a mutually beneficial package (or wrapping). Rather than asking people to give something up, effective negotiators ask them to cooperate to find an agreeable solution.

Out of his findings, Tony designed a course specifically for REALTORS®. The course provided, for the first time, a comprehensive set of negotiating principles and strategies based on human behavioral research and actual deal-making experience. Entitled Negotiation: The Complete Story, this popular course was taught to many Colorado real estate agents by Tony and his wife Debi.

Over time, word of the unique value of the course spread, drawing enquiries from non-REALTORS®. In response, Tony expanded its content beyond real estate and began to enroll sales and other professionals from other industries in the course as well.
