"Part of it is staying power. If all you're doing is honed in on the number of downloads, and you get hung up on that, you're not going to go anywhere, you have to skip over that." - Agostino Pintus

"If someone's never done this before at all, they're starting at zero, even if you have one piece of content that you created, and you put it out there, put it out there." - Agostino Pintus

"You have to deliver value; you have to think of the other person first, no matter what, whether it's preparing content or whether you're on the phone with them, you have to start with them first because nobody cares about you." - Agostino Pintus

"LinkedIn; it's really LinkedIn, Facebook. But LinkedIn is on top, then Instagram. It helps. Twitter has become an up-and-comer. But if you think about it, every single one of these platforms is just going after a different generation. But LinkedIn is where you want to be because people, it's not out of the ordinary for a real estate person to reach out to or talk to you about Real Estate." - Agostino Pintus

"Next time you step into an elevator, look around and see where people's eyes are; they're not looking at the door, they're not looking at the numbers, they're looking at their phones. If you can get part of that attention. In that case, attention is worth more than time." - Agostino Pintus
