At Big Block Realty, we know being a real estate agent isn’t for everyone. It takes a special breed to be in this business.
Building a reputation for a 100% commission real estate business is about more than just making sales. It’s about giving it your all and being the best you can be.
So you want to be in real estate? That’s great.
Here’s how not to suck at it.
1.) People Skills-
You need to know how to talk to people. Can you read people’s emotions and are you capable of a little empathy? Can you listen and then ask the right questions? Your clients have come to you because you’re a professional.
Get to know them and discover exactly what it is they need in a new home. You do that by building a relationship and connecting with people.
2.) Get Educated-
In real estate, you need to know your job, front to back. Learn the laws, the codes, everything having to do with property in your territory. Anything less is just lazy.
Keep current on developments in your field by attending seminars and relevant educational opportunities throughout the year. The same applies to your listings.
Learn everything you can about them so when a potential buyer asks about the school zone you don’t look like an uninformed hack.
3.) Learn The Ropes / Pay Your Dues / Do Your Time-
Whatever you want to call it, it means finding someone to mentor you. You can’t just leap into real estate. You need to find someone to shadow and get some meaningful experience.
If that means you have to do the scut work and the coffee runs for an old pro, just be thankful for the opportunity. Keep quiet, observe, and learn.
4.) Ethics Matter-
Whether you’re dealing with your clients or your co-workers, in real estate, your word better count for something. Screw up bad enough and you can get sued or go to jail.
Be honest and do your best. Be someone your co-workers and clients can depend on and trust. It’s really just simple golden rule philosophy. If you’re a dirtbag, you won’t last long in real estate. Go somewhere else.
At Big Block Realty, we want each and every one of agents to have the helpful tools that will increase their success. Want to begin a rewarding career with an integrity driven, 100% commission real estate brokerage?
Then Big Block Realty might be the place for you! A career in real estate requires character like no other career.
