“Ben Caballero: Real Estate Lessons from the #1 Ranked Agent in the US” is a new four-part Podcast series featuring the legendary Ben Caballero, the first Guinness World Record holder for real estate sales.

He’s also the first individual with more than $1 billion of MLS recorded sales transactions in a single year, a feat he’s accomplished for the last three years running.

Now available for free download on Apple iTunes and Google Play Music, each podcast features an in-depth interview where Caballero shares his secrets to success, advice for agents and builders, and stories about his rise to the top. Each podcast is introduced by noted real estate journalist and accomplished author Tom Kelly.

“Every year, I’m inundated with requests from agents nationwide asking me for advice or to appear in their radio show or podcast,” Caballero said.

“This new Podcast series is our attempt to address those requests and more. I want to help agents learn about a largely untapped real estate niche: how to work with builders. I also want builders to discover what they are missing by not maximizing their use of the local MLS (Multiple Listing Service).”


The “Ben Caballero Real Estate Lessons” four-part Podcast series includes:


Part 1 – How Ben Became #1: In Part 1, Ben Caballero tells his success story – how a Cuban-American from Tampa, Florida ended up in Dallas, eventually becoming the first real estate agent ever to receive recognition by Guinness World Records for real estate sales. No one tells the story about Ben’s journey to success better than Ben himself.

Why Real Estate?


Part 2 – How Ben’s Platform Works: In Part 2, Ben Caballero describes how his Platform for builders works and keeps him America’s top-ranked real estate agent. In this episode, Ben explains his path to discovery, how he developed his business exclusively for home builders, the technology he invented, and how it works. Ben also shares how his straight-forward approach to success – helping his builder clients sell homes faster – catapulted him to the top of the real estate business.

What is the greatest business lesson you have ever learned?


Part 3 – How to Work with Builders: An episode filled with sage advice for other real estate agents, in Part 3, Ben Caballero shares strategies on how to build a business with builders. Ben describes how working with builders is one of the fastest ways for agents to gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace, as so few buyer’s agents know how to work with builders effectively.

What are the keys to success?


Part 4 – Volume Builders need a Volume MLS Solution: In Part 4, an episode created specifically for volume home builders, Ben describes how homes sell faster when their beauty and quality are reflected in the MLS. That’s what Ben Caballero’s Platform does: It helps Volume Builders by providing a volume MLS listing solution that ensures the ongoing accuracy of every listing and fully shows the beauty of every new home. Ben shares why builders need a volume MLS solution today and how volume builders benefit from the technology he invented. It’s what has catapulted him to the top of the real estate business.

If you could have any other job in the world, what would it be?
