Make sure you have 12 months of expenses in your bank account. You never know when you are going to CLOSE and get PAID on your first deal. This is a very tough business to become successful. Know the Laws and Rules, Code of Ethics, and dot every I and cross every T. Good Luck !

One don't spend money for get rich marketing systems. Two soak up as much free training and info. One great source is activerain.com. Search through the groups and see all the wonderful marketing tools. Three blog, use Craigslist, and the Internet.....they are all free marketing tools. I have made over 75% of my income off the Internet.... You can too

Whether you are a new agent or a seasoned agent, don't skimp on educating yourself. The market moves quickly and how we buy, sell and market real estate is continuously evolving. Make sure your skill set is up to date. You will be amazed how fresh training (even in subjects you thought you had mastered) can motivate and empower you.

Be prepared to work hard. Don't let other forces deter you. Set a plan and stick to it. Plant enough seeds and watch them grow!

Good luck!

Hey hang in there your in for a bumpy ride. Learn as much as you can be ready to spend some money gor advertising, be creative, do FSBO's get listings, do BPO's. Took me 4 years to make my first sale as a Buyers Agent, broke my cherry this October 2012. I work part time and have had many deals fall through on the Buyer and Seller side.

Learn the inventory in your area. Go out to all of the broker open houses, and the public ones for that matter. Get to know the other agents in your community. This is a business of knowledge and trust.
