6 Questions To Ask For a More Rewarding Real Estate Career

6 Questions To Ask Yourself For a More Rewarding Real Estate Career

Grow Your London Ontario Real Estate Career

1 How flexible are your hours?  Realtors consistently rank flexibility as a reason they got into real estate, but as they got busier, working late nights and weekends can interrupt family time because they are available whenever a client calls.  What boundaries have you set for yourself? How will that affect your business? Income? Is time management an issue?

2 Do you offer value every day to your clients?  Real estate is one of the most significant financial decisions your clients may ever make; it is so easy to lose sight of this with the day-to-day activities, interruptions, disruptors, and servicing new and past clients. What systems do you have in place to offer value consistently?

3 What are some of the talents you have that nobody knows about?  If very few people know about you and your skills, you could be the best-hidden secret in the market place. Don’t hide!

4 Not happy with your income? This is similar to question 2. Did you know your earnings are consistent with the number of skills and value you provide to your clients? Where, how, and what skills do you need to increase your income?

5 Are you running your business or is the business running you? Your current real estate brokerage has a significant impact on a Realtor’s success rate, career growth and exit. Is your broker providing you with a win-win scenario, a financial exit plan, a mentoring or a leverage program?

6 Do you have one or two niche markets where you’re better suited?  Are you a general practitioner, “I’ll take on anything, any buyer or seller, anytime, anywhere,” Realtor? If so, enjoy the struggles, disappointments and frustrations and a yo-yo income. I know this is a very blunt statement; the brutal truth usually hurts. What niche markets can you go after? Do you know how?

"Not All Realtors Are The Same"! This website and content are for you and are designed and constantly upgraded with the latest real estate trends, how-tos, and what is for sale on MLS. Our primary focus is guiding home buyers and sellers to make good decisions. We believe selling real estate is a process, not an event or knee-jerk reaction; we sleep well at night and ensure our clients do as well! We are not for everybody, nor can we please everybody, nor do we tell people what they want to hear; I know that may be old-fashioned and boring, but we are dealing with hundreds of thousands of your hard-earned money. Would you rather be happy, excited and bored or unhappy, excited and make a poor choice? About Ty I am a Broker with Sutton Group Preferred Realty Inc., Brokerage and the team leader for The Envelope Real Estate Group, that's enough about me! You see, this is about you, you do not want to hear blah blah stuff about awards, designations, or that we walk older adults across the street (I used to help old ladies cross the street, but as I got older I did not want my wife to think I was flirting) the reincarnation of Mother Teresa, walk on water or anything else to impress you. We let the numbers speak for themselves; success leaves clues!
