I must begin by stating that I am not a top real estate agent, I am not even a real estate agent. However I am an real estate investor and have bought many properties throughout my career.
I have had countless dealing with realtors and know what separates a top real estate agent from all the rest. If you are serious about becoming a top real estate agent you need to have the work ethic and drive to reach your goals.
If you are a new real estate agent, find a mentor who has had and is having great success. As in any occupation, make sure to have short term and long term goals and study your market and industry continually, you never want to be satisfied with the status quo.
To be a top real estate agent you must listen carefully to your clients and go above and beyond other agents, make sure to do marketing and be innovative.
If you make your client feel like they are a priority to you, I guarantee you that your business will grow as you will get the best form of marketing which is of course word of mouth and that you will be well on your way to becoming a top real estate agent.
I have worked with many agents throughout my real estate career and I do give referrals but truthfully there are only a handful of agents I have referred to other investors because in my experience there has been a lack of knowledgeable realtors who not only worked hard but listened to me and understood exactly what I was looking for.
If you are serious about becoming a top real estate agent, you need to work hard and always have your client’s best interest at heart.
Real estate agents are in the people business and if your goal is to become a top real estate agent you need to make your client feel important and create that rapport early with them.
My last piece of advice is to always be early for appointments and never make your client wait for a call back or a meeting, it is simple but you would be surprised how many folks in the industry are not the least bit reliable.
If you take my suggestions to heart you will be a top real estate agent in no time at all.
