5 Success Strategies for New Real Estate Agents, Chicago, Illinois

With its low barrier of entry and almost limitless opportunities, a real estate career can be the doorway to a challenging, rewarding future. Even new agents can enjoy the success they’ve only dreamed of with the right training and mentoring from a seasoned professional willing to show them the ropes. Below are a few tips for jump-starting your career in real estate.

5 Tips for Brand-New Real Estate Agents

1. Use Your Contacts

The first challenge will be getting your real estate license, and the next is generating your first leads. Your existing circle of friends, acquaintances, and colleagues can be a valuable resource, so reach out, let them know you’re open for business, and take the time to cultivate these relationships.

2. Find a Mentor

3. Host Frequent Open Houses

In the age of online marketing, open houses still play a crucial role, putting you face-to-face with potential clients. While showing a house, you’re also putting your own knowledge, passion, and professionalism on display, so consider open houses a cornerstone of your business.

4. Take Advantage of Training Opportunities

No matter where you are in your real estate career, there’s always more to learn. If your brokerage offers training seminars, workshops, or other learning opportunities, take as many as possible, and continuously work to sharpen your skills.

5. Choose Your Brokerage Carefully

A brokerage’s support and policies and fees can make or break your fledgling career. Before deciding where to work, consider how much they invest in their agents, whether you can afford the fees, and the mentorship opportunities they provide.
