Lifstyl Real Estate/Prime Real Estate
Joshua Lybolt, a past professor of finance, knew that he could fill a void by focusing on the personal growth and professional development of Realtors. So after having enjoyed a variety of professional roles — economic development director, college professor and retail stockbroker — he entered the real estate industry, a decision that has paid off handsomely.
Lybolt, president of Lifstyl Real Estate/Prime Real Estate, serves Realtors in seven states — Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida and Colorado — in every stage of their career. “I care about who they are, what their personal and business goals are and how I can encourage them to live the very best life possible,” he says.
Lybolt’s mission has reached beyond the Realtors at his company. He launched a video series, LOVE YOUR LIFSTYL, on YouTube this year, which focuses on overcoming problems, reaching new heights and living an amazing lifestyle. In addition, his real estate company has launched a reality show titled “Reel Estate Life.” The second season of the series presents a day in the life of a Realtor at his company.
“It is very motivational and I have had fun inspiring my viewers,” he says. The company has also ventured into new markets, new states and new industries. “I have been successful with two additional entities specifically: Brokerlife and a finance company,” he says. “Brokerlife is a pre-licensing, continuing education and professional development school for Realtors.” His biggest accomplishment is the successful launch of Become conferences, events that bring speakers and trainers from across the country before Realtors to inspire them.
Lybolt has world-class graphic designers and video producers, as well as a public relations expert, on his marketing team. “Our agents absolutely love working for us and enjoy my constant encouragement and motivation,” he says. “I inspire people to grow and prosper.”
Lybolt’s professional certifications, including his training in personality profiles, have given him an understanding of how people think and act, allowing him to provide them with solutions to achieve their goals. Outside organizations have taken notice of his work. He has been featured on REAL Trends 500 Up and Comers List and the Inc. 5000 list of Fastest Growing Companies in the U.S., Inc. magazine, Inman News, the Associated Press, Chicago Tribune and International Business Times.
In his downtime, he enjoys skiing, hiking and cycling.
