The real estate industry in the Raleigh and surrounding area can be very appealing to many. The question when wanting to become an agent is where do I begin? Here are some words of advice as you look into the real estate industry.
Find the right place to connect.
No one should go at it alone. With numerous companies and agencies out there, look for the office that is the best fit for you. Talk with them about their company, goals and areas where you are wanting to learn. Find people that can help you grow in the right way. Be sure to look at factors like leadership, training, market, resources and commission. Talk about these areas with potential companies before signing the deal.
Learn, Learn, Learn!
When new to the industry, take time to be a student. Network with realtors in the area who have been doing it for a while. Take time to learn the ins and outs of the region, city and market for who you are working with both in buying and selling. Also stay up to date with courses, regulations, laws and legal areas that relate to your position. It will help you stay on the pulse of what is happening not only for your company but for your real estate market in the Triad area.
Plan Then Execute.
Take time to create a plan when it comes to networking, marketing and promotions. This includes networking personally and professionally as well as opening up your company to the community. Feel free to use all kinds of resources available, from websites to blogs, mobile apps to social media. All venues will help you engage people, build relationships and establish a brand for yourself and your company.
