Your Letters to the Editor: A Big Question
Advice from experience…

A couple weeks ago, we asked: “What advice can you offer new agents who are entering one of the toughest markets in decades?”

Here’s some guidance we received from real estate professionals who’ve been through a few ups and downs:

Carol Billups, Broker/Owner Realty Executives Los Cabos writes:

“Be patient with yourself. No matter how long you thought it would take to get established, you probably underestimated. That’s OK; be patient and keep working. There’s something you can do every day, whether it’s blogging or coaching little league, or taking a free online course to prepare yourself and build your ‘personal brand’. With time, perseverance, and patience it will happen. Just don’t lose hope.”


Scott Deaton, PMP, REM Broker/Owner of EXIT Realty writes:

“Train, Train, Train. You can’t take too much training. With the internet and resources from NAR, everyone should take as much training as possible on how to grow their business. You don’t have to recreate the wheel. Others have already done that. Just follow their lead, and use the resources and programs currently available to grow your business. If your company provides training, be committed to attend every session. I have been in real estate 6 years and attend every training session EXIT Realty offers. I learn something that will make me money every time.”

Pamela (Pam) Mones of Long & Foster Companies writes:

“I can share with you that persistence and practice make all the difference. Passing the real estate [exam] is a major accomplishment, but theory and practice are often miles apart. Rely on a trusted mentor who has had the experience of navigating real-world real estate transactions. The more you practice, the more expert you will become. Do your best and the rest will follow. Good luck.”


Education, mentorship, persistence, and patience.

I think you would be hard pressed to find more worthy values to endorse for a successful real estate career.

Cheering you towards greater success,
