New real estate agents face a lot of challenges. Sure, you may have studied the market, worked on your skills and perhaps even created a website, but this won’t be enough to ensure your success. There is still a lot of work that must be done before you can start.
It can all be a little overwhelming. However, you can do it and Dot Property is here to help. We’ve compiled a list of six things all new real estate agents must do before starting.
Things new real estate agents must do before starting
1) Understand your office needs
Many new real estate agents end up splurging on things they don’t need. The biggest offender is an office. Leasing space can be costly and in a lot of cases, it’s totally unnecessary. New real estate agents spend the bulk of their days outside meeting clients anyway. Figure out your office needs and plan accordingly.
2) Create a social media strategy
If you’re like most new real estate agents, creating a Facebook, Instagram and other social media accounts was among the first things you did. But now what? You need a strategy that sets you apart from everyone else out there.
3) Network, Network, Network
You must focus on meeting people during the first few months. Making yourself visible is vital. The only way to do this is to get yourself out there. Find those networking events, bring a stack of business cards and don’t come home until you’ve handed them all out.
4) Create a toolkit
New real estate agents are only as good as the tools they use. Figure out what works best for you and embrace those tools. Kick any tools you don’t like to the curb.
5) Find a mentor
There is no better way to learn the ropes than by finding a mentor. There are plenty of experience real agents who started out just like you. Reach out and see if they have any advice.
