Congratulations! You just received your real estate license and you are ready to take on the real estate world. But, where do you start? How do you etch your name into the pillars of real estate? As a new agent you face a daunting task, but Rental Beast is here to help guide you.
First thing you should do as a new real estate agent is to find a mentor. Mentors offer an experienced inside look into the world you are joining. Don’t be afraid to ask for help as all agents started off exactly where you are. Reach out to a respected local realtor and ask for a meeting.
Find your closest realtor association convention and sign up to attend. Conventions offer a massive amount of information and valuable tools to aid you in the real estate world. Attend the education seminars and see the speakers, as well as create connections with more experienced agents. You will also go home with a bunch of free goodies.
Get online. Create a website and professional social media pages: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, even LinkedIn. You want to build your brand both in person and on the web. Social media gives you the opportunity to connect and build relationships with clients while also marketing yourself and properties.
Always be learning. Being a good student is essential to building your real estate career. After obtaining your license, you should attend seminars and classes. Buy some books on real estate and hone your craft. The ever-evolving world of real estate is rife with opportunities to learn and better yourself.
