I’ve been in the real estate business for decades, but once upon a time, I was a brand new agent too. Here are four tips I wish I knew when I got into the real estate game that would have saved me a lot of time and headaches. These real estate tips will help you become a top producer much faster if you put them into practice today.
#1. Speak To At Least 3 Different Real Estate Brokerages
From big brands like Remax to small independent companies, you owe it to yourself to find the organization that fits you and your needs best. There are so many companies and so many models, which mean there are no right or wrong directions to take, but the question is, “Are they right or wrong for you personally?”
#2. Get A Mentor
No one expects you to have the answers right out of the gate, but connecting yourself with a solid mentor will help you and your clients. Here at the Golfi Team, we have seasoned realtors ready to take on new industry agents. If you run into problems or need any guidance through a real estate transaction, they’re always there to help make sure you’re successful in your career.
#3. Master The Fundamentals
You must understand a Real Estate Agreement of Purchase and Sale inside and out. Fully understand your Buyer Representative and Listing Agreements Mock Offers and Agreements, everything. Study, study, study. Remember the adage; practice makes perfect. Become the expert; it will put you ahead of the rest.
#4. Understand Your Current Market
Knowledge equals power. If you don’t know your market, you will struggle to appear credible in your clients’ eyes. Get on the MLS and study it. I release a monthly market watch newsletter, but also keep an eye on what’s going on week to week. The industry changes by the hour and agents have to be in a position to answer any inventory questions or objections from their clients.
If I had followed these 4 simple tricks at the beginning of my real estate career, I would have saved myself a lot of time and ended up where I am today a lot quicker.
