Are there any agents that are looking for an apprentice, someone they could mentor?

Asked by nocctrial, 91302 Wed Jan 22, 2014

I'm wondering if there are any agents in the Calabasas, Woodland Hills or Tarzana areas that would be interested in getting help from someone new in the business. I've worked in marketing, public relations and advertising for the past ten years and am now trying to transition into real estate. I'm in the process of getting my license now. I do have experience: I worked for two top producing agents in Beverly Hills, doing their marketing as well as conducting open houses, meeting clients, managing MLS listings and files. I've done a lot of research and it seems like starting out as someone's assistant works well. If anyone has an interest, I'd love to help you with your business and learn from you.

Joel,

I am glad to see you take this approach. A lot has been covered on this site about the importance of a mentor. New agents keep asking about "training." While this is important, a great mentor is going to get you much farther. Your head is in the right place. Good luck!

Hi, I work for Coldwell Banker in Calabasas and I am one of the two mentors in the office. I mentor all the new agents. You should come in and talk to Leah the manager. This is the best office in Calabasas!!

Congratulations! -*-
You exhibited exactly what you have to offer. A business owner can read your post and know EXACTLY how you can benefit their enterprise.

I hope other 'newbies' can see your pattern and instead of stating, "I've got my license, now what?" they can present their 'go to' skills and find a true match.

Real business people are too busy to to 'find' a place in which to engage a newbie.

I would suggest making a resume and taking it to the local offices where you would like to work. That way you can figure out which agents you connect with. I had an amazing guy working with me over the summer who found me by doing exactly what I described.
