    The Benefits of Hiring a Real Estate Coach

    The Benefits of Hiring a Real Estate Coach

    I got an email recently from someone thinking about getting into the real estate business who asked me whether they should hire a coach. In my opinion, yes you should hire a coach. All professionals have coaches. The most successful people in the world have coaches and consultants. I have a coach named Bobby Corcoran, whom I’ve coached with for several years and consider the very best coach in the business. No matter which path you take, you need a real estate coach. Whether it’s a systems coach, a scripts and dialogue coach, a marketing coach, or you join a team that already has a top agent doing the existing coaching for them. Having a coach means having someone who will hold you accountable, which is crucial to success in the real estate business. A coach can notice things that you don’t notice, give you action plans, and teach you from experience what works for their most successful customers. Hiring a coach is crucial to success in the real estate business. As far as what kind of coach you should hire, that depends on what kind of agent you intend to become. Are you an individual agent? Are you a team member? Do you want to focus on a certain niche in the business? What do you want to get out of your real estate career?  The most important piece of advice I can give to you is if you’re going to hire a coach, listen to them. I can’t count all the times I’ve talked to other coaches in the business who’ve told me they’re frustrated because someone is paying them great money but they’re not listening to them. If you’re going to hire a coach, trust them and listen to their advice. Most of the time, they’re probably right. Be sure to check out our website for more educational real estate tips. If you have any other questions, please feel free to give me a call or shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!

    What’s an Agent’s First Year Really Like?

    What’s an Agent’s First Year Really Like?

    What can a new real estate agent expect in their first year? To give you an idea, let me summarize how my first year as a real estate agent went. I was in my mid-twenties with a college degree in hand. I had been in a sales position for several years, but then I decided to join a real estate company. In my first year, I lost money. I sold very little real estate and just wasn’t very successful at all. Unfortunately, that’s the story with most first-year real estate agents. A high percentage of them don’t make the cut and never come back because they go to the wrong place and believe they can generate enough business to have a successful income. Fortunately, I was able to persist, educate myself about the business, and become very successful. Don’t have high expectations about your production in your first year. You shouldn’t have super high expectations about production in your first year, though. Your first year is about building a pipeline, covering a niche, and figuring out what you’re good at and what you’re not good at while you adapt to an independent contract-type career. Focus on getting as much education as you can and learning the basics. If you’re an independent agent, you’ll have to do a lot of these things on your own. If you join a team, however, there is marketing, education, training, coaching, and leads immediately available to take advantage of. For anyone getting into the business, joining a team is the option I would encourage. If you have any other questions about how to navigate the first year of your real estate career, please feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I would be happy to talk with you!

    You’re Invited to Our Real Estate Career Night

    If you’re someone who’s always thought about getting into real estate but have hesitated due to too many unanswered questions about the business itself, I have an opportunity for you. On the second Tuesday of every month, my team will be holding real estate career nights. Here you’ll be able to ask questions and learn about our business model and how it can help you become more successful. Whether you’ve never been in sales, you’re successful in another sales field, or you’re right out of college, learning about real estate sales can be a super effective way for you to become a business owner and an entrepreneur. At our career nights, you’ll be able to ask questions firsthand and learn relevant information about what it’s like for first-year real estate agents. During my first year, for example, I sold one home — to my parents. Not only that, but I also gave them half of my commission. The business isn’t as easy as your think, and our career nights are a way to help you jumpstart your career and achieve some understanding of the market so you know what you’d be getting into. If you would like to register for this event or find out more information, visit jointheduo.com. If you have any more questions, please feel free to give me a call or send me an email.
