Are you considering a career in Real Estate? What I wish I knew!

Even though it’s been a full year, it still feels very new to me. I am lucky to have a great support system and an awesome office to work for. There are certain things I do wish I had known beforehand though so I thought I would share in case you’re thinking of joining this crazy fun career choice.

  1. There are monthly expenses associated with Real Estate, so be prepared financially before starting. It’s recommended that you have 6-8 months of expenses saved for beforehand because it’s not guaranteed you will sell a house right away.
  2. Ask! Most other Realtors are glad to share their knowledge and help you out.
  3. At first you may not know a ton about homes, sales, etc. But jump right in and you will learn along the way. I learn something new almost every day!
  4. Just like any other business it’s not likely you will make money immediately. It gets tough and expensive but if you stick with it, it can be rewarding.
  5. Be consistent. This is something I wish I had done early on. Set a business plan and keep at it. If you want to be successful all year long, you must be consistent in your daily activities.
  6. Be open to taking as many courses as possible. Expand your knowledge as much as possible whether it be about homes themselves or maybe a session on social media.
  7. Find someone who you look up to. This person can be anyone; someone who will push you and motivate you to be the best you each day.
  8. Make time for family, friends and yourself. Even if you need to set it as an appointment in your planner. You need to be well-balanced to be the best you!
  9. Lastly, don’t let the fear of rejection scare you away from getting out there. Take risks and let it motivate you to jump into the business!

I hope these tips were able to help you out in any way. Also, don’t be shy if you have any questions about getting into Real Estate. If I don’t know the answer I will find it!
