AA,

Find some one willing to mentor you. If they are willing to take you in and show you the ropes for a small percentage of their commisson you will find yourself ahead of the game. By supporting another agent you learn in so many different ways...it's a big advantage.

Ask to do the leg work, make telephone calls, be the follow up guy/gal, sit open houses, take care of paper work, solicite feedback on showings, update owners about their listings etc. Through these activities you will be able to see things from the advantage point of years of experience.

Hi Anthony, You are going to want to start branding yourself-another words getting your name and face out there. Which leads me to recommend that you a have a professional photo done of yourself. Buyers are looking on this site also, and want to see professionalism. This photo doesn't do you justice-almost looks like Mike Tyson. I read your profile, you might want to ad a little more about yourself. Sounds like you have completed at least one deal according to your testimonial-good job! If you are working with a large brokerage-which I would recommend-hold open houses for other agents, work phone time if it is offerred, attend other agents open houses. Send out flyers to you farming area, anything it takes to get your name out there. Also, while you have the time, take as many educational classes you can-especially on foreclosure and short sales! Good luck, it will be tough at first, but stick with it, it will get better.

Hi Anthony,

First, there is the intense competition, then you must develop a clientele with little knowledge regarding business development practices, and on top of this, you must appear confident. The first thing any new Realtor should do is to build a name for him or herself, and realize that money is going to be extremely tight for the first year or so. The good news, however, is that Realtors have many avenues to explore when building a name for themselves. Because the general populous perceives Realtors, like nurses, as being all-knowing, the options for exposure are numerous. The next thing a new Realtor may want to do is start participating in community events. The key here is to let the community know that you want to specialize in Real Estate and let them know that you support and plan to give back to the community. The reality is that those real estate sales people that started their careers many years ago did so at a time when competition wasn’t nearly as fierce as it is today, and when more people could actually afford property. Today, we live in a new world filled with more lifetime renters then ever before, more people loosing their homes and reverting to a rental status, and more individuals entering the field of real estate with the hopes of making lots of money. This all means that the competition for success has increased, and if you want to be one of those new Realtors to succeed in the industry, you must start being creative and innovative in the ways that you build your reputation. In order to be successful at anything, you need to become good at it.
