As we all reflect on 2017 and ponder 2018, many of you may be thinking of a new career. Real estate has been good to me and people ask me all the time about how to get into real estate and whether it would be a good fit for them.
Real estate is a terrific opportunity for you to reinvent yourself in 2018! The income potential for top real estate agents is unlimited, easily in the $100,000-$1,000,000 range annually, for those who are suited for it and work hard! You may be asking, “would I be a good real estate agent?” I’m glad you asked!
Are you self-motivated and driven? Do you desire to control your own destiny and work for yourself? If so, then you’ve got the #1 and #2 qualities that it takes to succeed in real estate. Read on!
Here are some other qualities that make a successful agent:
- strong work ethic, hustle and tenacity
- integrity and honesty
- attention to detail
- confident, engaging & trustworthy personality
Finally, to really hit the ground running and avoid some lean times while you’re building your business, you would ideally need an existing network of people (from your previous career or social/volunteer activities) who trust, admire and respect you. These people will be your first clients and be the base of referrals for the future.
