Top seven tips for new agents

Starting out as a real estate agent can be a very challenging experience, and while the truism holds that hard work and experience often leads to success, it is equally importance to develop a knowledge-base and network through which you can build your clientele and professional reputation. 

The following seven tips may prove to be useful for agents starting out in the field:

1. Be realistic and set attainable goals: Write down what you would like to achieve each week, month and year, and then work towards implementing steps that will enable you to achieve such;

2. Develop your time management skills: Life as a real estate agent can be both busy and unpredictable and as such, the ability to plan, multitask and order competing priorities can become essential;

3. Take the time to develop a detailed understanding of your local market. This will entail gathering knowledge about your target market’s historical price trends, future development prospects, population demographics and local culture;

4. Begin building a referral network:  Whenever you secure a client, invest consistent time and effort into building your relationship with them so that they have a reason to refer you onto their family, friends and colleagues;

5. Think about different ways to connect buyers and sellers within your market; 

6. Don’t be afraid to seek advice from your colleagues:  most people don’t mind being asked questions and the best way for you to build your skills and expertise is to utilise the knowledge of the people around you;

7. Develop your presence at open houses: these situations can provide some wonderful prospecting opportunities.
