🏡Today's Random Real Estate 2️⃣cents Tuesday is about becoming a Realtor.
A few of the things I love about being a professional real estate agent is helping people with one of the largest transactions of their life, the hunt/search, and the rush of negotiations.
Why do you want to be a Realtor?
3 common reasons people obtain their real estate license is that they think:
- 👉 they love “looking at houses” or like watching shows on HGTV.
- 👉 they will make a ton of money.
- 👉 they can work whenever they want
One thing that is rarely discussed about the real estate profession is the percentage of agents who fail.
85-90% fail within the first 5 years. 😱
Successful real estate agents have to have determination, accountability, and availability. Being a successful real estate agent means working many nights and weekends and being available via phone or e-mail nearly 24 hours a day.
You also need to realize that being a realtor is the business of PEOPLE. I can sell the same house to 10 people and every time have it go completely different.
