These Were His Top 5 Tips for Becoming a Successful Real Estate Agent
Success in the real estate industry is a possibility. It is possible to master a specific sector of any real estate market and then make enough money from it to support a comfortable life. On this blog, imageskc.com I have often touched on the importance of focusing on your career and having plans in order to succeed. I once met another real estate agent while in Las Vegas, by the name Blake Leavitt. He covered the Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada markets and we exchanged contact information. I maintained contact with him since then and this morning, he sent me an insightful email listing 5 of the most crucial aspects of success in real estate. We took some pictures for his website in the end of it all.
There’s Money in Real Estate
As long time readers of my blog www.imageskc.com will know, there is plenty of money available in the real estate business. It all depends on how you approach the industry, the opportunities available at any given time, and how prepared you are to seize it and turn it into wealth. But in order to really build up wealth in this industry, there are a few rules of the game that you will have to play by. When you do that, and do it correctly, then success will definitely find you.
The 5 tips for Success in Real Estate
The following are the 5 tips from the email that my colleague Blake Leavitt the real estate agent sent me this morning from Henderson, Nevada. Just remember that you can make it if you really try. So try.
– Get a Mentor
Life is too short to learn from mistakes, especially when those mistakes have been made by someone else who has already learned from it and moved on. That’s why you need the mentoring of an older player in the game, and even if you have to pay for that mentor, you will make back your investment many times over.
– Partner with other Agents
A little of something is always better than nothing. You should not see every other agent as competition, rather you should have a few useful allies. A potential client for example, may not be in your price class, or you know for some weird reason that things won’t be working out. We took a couple pictures to get on his website to help his social media presence. Rather than loosing the client completely, you may want to pass it on to a partner or co-represent the client with the partner. This way, everybody wins.
– Maintain a Connection with past Clients
This helps to keep you in their minds. You may send occasional market updates, cards, emails, gifts, whatever. They just have to remember you as the real estate guy, so that whenever an opportunity pops up, you will be notified immediately.
– Never say no to small deals
Saying no to deals because you think they are too small is not a very smart choice. The repeat business or referral from that small deal could be huge next time. So, every deal in real estate counts.
– Get online
This is Blake Leavitt’s favorite. He jokes that even if you have been living deep inside the Nevada desert, that it’s now the 21st century and you need a website. You do not need clients from just Las Vegas and Henderson, but rather from as far away as possible.
I believe that if I, the owner of ImagesKC could make it in this business, then everybody else can make it too. And that if Blake Leavitt could make it in Las Vegas and Henderson Nevada, then anyone could also make it. All you need to do is to try. I am posting this information on this blog www.imageskc.com in the hopes that it will motivate you to try.
