First, there are no short cuts to success in Real Estate. You can choose to be a listing agent, buyer agent or work both. First you need to promote yourself so people know you are in real estate. Hand written cards to those close to you. A social media presence and start an Active Rain Blog you can promote yourself and tell people what you can offer them. Also write about local events, news and tips to buy or sell. I included a link below that i use. Lastly when you do find clients, offer them great service.
