5 Steps to Becoming a Successful Realtor:
The flow chart created explains a visual explanation of the 5 steps to becoming a successful realtor. This process allows you to prepare and set short-term goals in order to make sure that you are on the right track.
Step 1: Are you ready?
In this module, it is important for you to consider if you’re ready to commit to something new in your life and face new challenges. As an agent you have the option to choose yes or no in which the no box puts you on hold and yes will take you on the next step of your journey.
Step 2: Back Up Income
Although you’re ready to enter the next box, some realtors may end up going back to the “Are you ready” phase because they did not plan a backup source of income incase they don’t make a sell within the first few months entering the market. Although making your first commission check may be rewarding, you are never promised or guaranteed anything until you close escrow.
Step 3: Find Mentor or Broker With The Right Training
It’s always good to reach out and do your research to find the right team. Make sure that your broker’s career is real estate and that they do it full time to make the best of it. It’s definitely a good idea to choose someone you like because you’re going to be spending a lot of time with you’re broker. Find a broker that will act as a mentor to guide you and answer any questions you have because real estate can be very complicated.
Step 4: Sphere of Influences
Finding new leads and clients can be very difficult in the beginning. Try using the resources that you do know and have. Friends and family are a great way to start with because those are people who will trust you most during the process. Always keep every transaction with professionalism because referrals are the key to success.
Step 5: Start Marketing Online
If you haven’t started, it’s not too late. The custom way of getting new leads were to go door knocking or making cold calls. Although these methods still work, there are different options available. Can you imagine reaching over 5,000 or more viewers in 1 day? You can view hundreds of homes through the Internet and not waste countless hours of driving unless you found something your client likes. Find yourself on many platforms from email, social media and video to name a few. Hop on the new wave and be a top agent in your community.
