What is think bigger Real Estate?
Think Bigger Real Estate is not… the brand of a real estate agent, a real estate team nor that of a real estate brokerage.
Think Bigger Real Estate is… a movement of “Big Thinking,” high-achieving real estate industry professionals who know that thinking bigger leads to a bigger life… a life with more income, more freedom and more impact.
As “Big Thinkers” we believe our future is even brighter than our present. We know that we can have great income AND great impact, great success AND great significance, a great business AND a great quality of life.
As “Big Thinkers” we know that our business will grow only to the level that we grow.
As “Big Thinkers,” we know that by surrounding ourselves with other big thinkers and high achievers, our own journey to a successful and significant life will be accelerated.
As “Big Thinkers” we know that as the real estate industry changes at a rapid pace, we have the choice to do what we’ve always done and get less and less and less… OR… we can grow ourselves, increase our value proposition and become invaluable to the clients we serve.
about the founder
Justin Stoddart is an advocate for the real estate industry and recognizes the urgent need to help inspire real estate industry professionals to think bigger. As an industry challenger, educator and leader, Justin is intent on helping to reshape the value proposition of the real estate industry to the consumer while helping real estate agents have stronger businesses and a better quality of life… so that they have lives of great significance and impact.
His efforts include hosting the Think Bigger Real Estate Show where every day he interviews one of the biggest thinkers and highest producers in the industry. Justin is also an author and a nationally recognized, award-winning producer and speaker/trainer.
Over the past two decades, Justin has owned, ran and grown small businesses, becoming an expert and thought leader in marketing, branding and business strategy.
Now, his day-to-day entails being knee-to-knee with real estate agents through individual or team consultations, trainings and masterminds. In these settings, Justin is positioned on the front lines to help identify the biggest challenges facing our industry and the subsequent opportunities that always follow. .
Justin was raised by entrepreneurial parents and as a result, was involved in business conversations as early as age five. This opened the door to business ventures and opportunities that funded many of his youth activities and his college education.
In addition to his early entrepreneurial spirit, Justin cultivated an ability to lead and inspire others through his work ethic and motivational words as a high school state champion and collegiate athlete. Although he enjoyed playing on some great teams, some of his greatest growth came from the adversity of a broken leg, a broken shoulder blade and his family relocating to a new city midway through his Junior year in high school. Despite not being the biggest nor the most talented player on his teams, after every season in football, basketball and track, Justin’s coaches and teammates would award him the ‘Most Inspirational’ player award. He realized early on that inspiring and growing people was a gift that he wanted to pursue.
A life shaping experience came to Justin between the ages of 19 and 21 as he served the people of Brazil. His experience taught him that growth, purpose, peace and true happiness come from serving and helping other people. From this experience overseas, he enjoyed many communication and leadership opportunities that continue to shape his life and career, including a desire to help as many as he can reach to recognize and pursue the potential that is within them.
Upon his return from Brazil, Justin finished his Bachelor’s degree in construction management and business. He self-funded his college education by partnering with investors to flip homes, owning and operating a home services business and then working for a high-end home builder, which later led Justin to form is own high-end home building company. In 2007 his company built the featured home of the area’s Parade of Homes.
Despite rapid growth and success in the early to mid 2000’s in luxury home building, the market crash forced deep introspection and Justin came to realize that his passion wasn’t building homes, but rather building business and building people.
While in college, Justin found and married a tall, beautiful strawberry blonde from North Dakota. She has proven to be a superhero as they now have six children who are the most important people in their lives. In addition to providing their children with a comfortable and loving home, they aspire to teach and model the power of being “Big Thinkers”, by living the mantra: “Fill your mind with truth, your heart with love and your life with service.”
Even amidst his massive ambitions outside of the home, Justin believes that loving, leading and modeling within the home will be the greatest work he will do.
If ‘Thinking Bigger’ seems difficult, scary, or unnecessary, I invite you to consider the scary situation that others find themselves in at this very moment. Justin found his burning why for ‘Thinking Bigger’ when he was introduced to Operation Underground Railroad, a non-profit led by some of the bravest people to ever live.
Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) is a non-profit founded by Tim Ballard which assists governments around the world in the rescue of human trafficking and sex trafficking victims, with a special focus on children. O.U.R.’s ultimate goal is to eliminate Sex Trafficking world-wide.
Justin is committed to personally donating $1M to O.U.R. which will save and rehabilitating 100 children from sex-trafficking. In the process, he intends on inspiring the donations of an additional $9M, which will be the equivalent of saving 1,000,000 children.
