If you MLS offers a direct feed, you need to check the box to include it. If your MLS does not offer a direct feed, you need to sign up for a service that does. An agent can no longer manually add listings to Trulia ... more

If the listing belong to the same broker then you can promote it. Just run it by your broker your intention. If the listing doesn't belong to your broker then you'd need to contact the listing agent. If she/he agrees then the next step is to talk to your broker and ask her to talk to her broker as well.

I hope this helps!

As a former realtor, this is where it pays to have a strong background in sales and marketing. You need to have the ability to make cold calls, talk to strangers, advertise yourself to everybody you know. Start contacting people you know whether they are ready to move or not. They may know somebody who is. Talk to people in the grocery store while waiting on line. Ask the manager if you can set up a booth in the store to advertise. Visit rental buildings and give out your business cards to tenants. You need to work with buyers too.

One thing you need to learn - it's expensive if you have to pay for leads. You don't get paid until you close a deal so expect to spend months without any income. Hopefully you have plenty of savings. My advice - DO NOT SPEND YOUR SAVINGS QUICKLY.

You should click on Pro above and contact a sales person who will be more than willing to sell you zip codes. It costs money to be featured.

Congratulations on considering a career in real estate!

I entered the business in the fall of 1991 as a 29 year old part-time agent. My previous sales experience was selling tires and automotive services at Sears (also part time).

You will find this business is a relationship business. The more people know, like and trust you, the more successful you will be.

For someone as young as you, it's unlikely that you have a list of people who are capable of buying a home, but you have all the people you went to school with as potential clients in the next few years. That's a start on a list.

I'd recommend you get licensed and try to get hired by a franchise brokerage that has at least a few dozen agents. You may be able to join a team within a brokerage or offer to do open houses for other agents within the company. Maybe you can establish relationships with builders or mobile home parks to be in their office.

I'd like to know how it is going for you. Contact me at . I'd be happy to talk with you.

Good Luck!

Aaron Wisenbarger answered:
Ultimately, like all things real estate, the contract rules so refer to your independent contractor agreement. Hopefully it addresses this situation but if it doesn't you'll have to have a discussion with your broker. A respectable broker will agree that you should still receive your commission assuming that all the work is complete. If they don't...well let's just say it's probably good that you're leaving them anyway. ... more

Joan Lorberbaum Moore answered:
One can ask but one cannot insist. If the seller does not want to or is unable to close earlier than the terms agreed to and signed off on in the sale and purchase contract, well, she doesn't have to. That being said, should there be a legitimate reason the buyer must close earlier - - such as a mortgage commitment being in jeopardy then the seller might want to reconsider. ... more

I am still partial to the north end; Tamarack Circle and Sharon Woods areas offer a lot of home for a lot less price. The neighborhoods have large lots and they offer a lot of great neighborhood features like large parks and schools within walking distance of all homes. There are community boards and activities for every season. Plus, the price per square foot is half of what you would pay in the German Village, Short North or Vic Village neighborhoods.
