New licensees or those wanting to change brokerages go out looking for a real estate brokerage to affiliate with often aren’t prepared to pick the right combination of company and management( broker of record, manager or mentor) for their particular personality.
In truth, the residential real estate industry has a poor track record of developing systems to help new people and experienced make more educated decisions about who they ought to join.
At the heart of all real estate transactions, there is a real estate representative who developed a relationship with their customer, who turned into their client. Real estate is a very local, “what’s going on in your city” type business. A recent CREA study indicated that buyers and sellers are more apt to choose the Realtor, not the company. There is a revolution now occurring in the industry, and many brokerages are becoming wise to the fact that, indeed, they don’t control clients, their associates’ do.
As a real estate salesperson, your income is in direct proportion to your ability to communicate with people and serve their wants. If you cannot do that, you will not go far in this business.
Real estate is no different from any other profession. A professionals’ income is in direct proportion to the amount of skill and ability and the value given, be it an athlete, physician, accountant or Realtor.
At what lengths are you willing to go daily to build a sustainable real estate career that gives you the happiness and freedom you deserve?
You decide your fate, no one else!
You cannot learn new skill sets if you are being taught and given the same training that hundreds, maybe thousands of real estate people have received! I have never met a great Realtor yet who was a robot, doing what everybody else is doing!
There are three types of people in this world: the wills, the won’t’s, the can’t’s. The wills win at everything; the won’t’s oppose everything and the can’t’s, fail at everything.
I am looking for Realtor who will work hard, will learn the business, who will succeed and who will suborn his/her ego and offer value to his/her client and is willing to do what he/she does not want to do when he/she does not want to do to his/her best ability.
If that is you, contact Ty Lacroix, I am the owner and Broker of Record. Which one of the three types of people are you?
Remember: You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great!
