EP102: Cris Chico Reveals The Formula for Hiring Rock Stars (and Building Your Real Estate Business)

Podcast Archive


Cris Chico is ready to kick off this episode and talk about why potential team members should take the Kolbe A Index Test before you hire them.

Cris is a close friend of Alex, return guest, and was actually the first person to be interviewed for Alex’s show! Cris doesn’t hire people unless they take the Kolbe Test because he needs to know both their strengths and weakness, and how well they’ll get along with the rest of the team.


Key Takeaways:

  • Cris was the first guest to kick off the podcast, and now he’s back again 100+ episodes later!
  • What is the Kolbe A Index Test about?
  • Alex has made hiring mistakes and hired the wrong types of people for the job. Kolbe makes it easy to see straight away if a position fits naturally for the person being hired for the job.
  • So much money is spent on training, and so having someone leave 5-6 months later really is a blow to your resources.
  • Cris shares what his score is on Kolbe, and gives you an idea of what to expect from the test.
  • None of the test results you get are bad. These results help give you a clear understanding of how you work.
  • Cris shares why he’s a horrible salesperson, and what kind of results you should look for when hiring an acquisitions manager.
  • When you understand how your team works on a fundamental level, you will also become a better and more relaxed boss.
  • What’s the first step? Take the Kolbe test yourself.
  • Cris discusses Kolbe scores for an admin, transaction coordinator, VA, and sales person, and helps give you a general idea of what you should look for in a team.
  • Don’t be so hard on yourself. This test is not about fixing your weaknesses, it’s about understanding your MO.
  • You can save yourself so much time and headaches just by this simple test.
  • Cris will be launching a YouTube channel. Stay tuned for more info!
