10 Things You Didn’t Know About Realvolve CEO Dave Crumby

Who is Dave Crumby? If you have any association or affiliation with anything in real estate, you’ve probably already heard of the name. He is the chief executive officer of Realvolve, a real estate platform that centers around effective customer relations. Even if you haven’t ever heard of him before, there are a lot of things about him that people could learn from. He’s made it a habit to try to teach other people from his own experiences, both positive and negative. The goal is to help real estate agents help their clients in a better and more efficient manner. With that being said, all of this can probably apply to virtually any person and almost any situation.

Below are 10 things you probably didn’t know about this man, but more importantly, these are attributes that can be applied to almost anyone’s life. See if you recognize any of these qualities.

1. He founded the company on his own

Crumby isn’t just the CEO of Realvolve, he also founded the corporation. That in and of itself speaks volumes because it proves that he’s got the vision to start something new and the ability to see it through until it becomes a reality and beyond.

2. He’s got plenty of experience in real estate

Since Realvolve is a real estate site, it’s obviously important to have experience in the business. Crumby has been involved in this industry since 1996, giving him the opportunity to see what is right and what is wrong with the business. That’s largely why he founded his own company, in an attempt to correct many of the things that he saw that could be done better.

3. He’s a best-selling author

He even wrote a book about the real estate industry in 2013. That book went on to become a best-selling edition, introducing him to a whole new group of individuals.

4. He understands the importance of building solid relationships

Crumby himself will tell you that regardless of the industry you’re involved in, nothing happens unless you’re capable of building good relationships with other people. This applies to both business relationships and personal relationships.

5. He applies his people skills to business

Obviously, he has learned some of the finer people skills that a lot of individuals never take the time to learn. He has taken those skills and applied them to the business world and it’s helped him do exceptionally well in that environment. Crumby then took things a step further and started teaching others how to do the same thing.

6. He understands the need for a real connection in business

This goes back to making good personal relationships. It’s only through being genuine that a true connection can be made, whether you’re talking about friendship or business partnerships. Crumby repeatedly tells other individuals how important it is to be who you really are as opposed to putting up a facade in order to impress someone.

7. He knows how to follow through in order to realize his goals

The best plan in the world won’t help you if you don’t ever do anything to put that plan into action in the real world. The truth is, you can plan all day long and you might have some of the best ideas that anyone has ever heard but it won’t do you or anyone else any favors if you’re not actively working to enact those plans. It’s not enough to simply have an idea. You have to know how to implement that idea and you have to be willing to put in the work in order to do it.

8. He wants others to learn from his mistakes

This is something that usually gets most people tripped up. It’s easy to fall into that mindset where you want people to think that you’ve just got it all figured out. This is especially true when other people are looking up to you. However, Crumby points out a very important point. When people are looking up to you, it’s even more important to admit that you don’t have all the answers and that you, too make mistakes. It’s even more important to show that you’re capable of admitting those mistakes and then learning from them. This is something he wants to teach others as well.

9. He understands what it means to be present in the moment

He has commented in the past how easy it is to get involved with the idea of creating a bigger company and doing more as fast as possible. However, he also cautions against doing this to the point that you stop listening to clients when they’re right in front of you. Being driven to succeed is a great thing, but not when you take it to the point that your head is always in the clouds instead of paying attention to what’s happening and who’s talking to you right now.

10. He knows more isn’t always better

He also understands that is not as important to have the biggest business with the greatest number of clients as it is to have the business with the best reputation. Therefore, he’s willing to sacrifice quantity for quality and he tries to make sure that others discover how important this is as well.
