Realtors don’t usually have the best “rep.” In fact, a survey on the Perceptions of Real Estate Agents by CoreLogic in Australia claims that only 9% of people rank real estate agents as “high” or “very high” in ethics and honesty.
As a new real estate agent one important decision to make is whether to join a team or fly solo. There is no right or wrong answer, nor is one path easier than the other. It is up to the individual to decide what best suites their situation and personality.
When your real estate business is growing exponentially, client relationships, closings, leads, marketing and maintaining your sanity can get tough. When you find yourself not having enough time in the day it may be time to hire a Realtor assistant.
Being a Realtor means balancing your budget, marketing, maintaining relationships, building clientele, attending networking events, often working on weekends and more. Startups often are in the same position.
If talking about generating leads makes you nervous, I have good news: you do not have to do it alone, and you are probably already doing it well without knowing it, especially if you have a great network.
