When starting a real estate career, there are a number of points you’ll need to keep in mind in order to ensure that you find the professional success you’re seeking! So what do you need to do to succeed in today’s hyper competitive real estate industry? Consider these tips from Realtor Judy Szablak, founder of Szablak Consulting and a real estate agent for more than 30 years!
Save Money Prior to Starting Your Real Estate Career
Ideally, you should have about six months worth of income in your savings before you start a real estate career or ensure that you can remain in a financially stable position with only your significant other’s salary.
It’s important to remember that Realtors don’t earn money on a weekly basis; instead, they earn larger sums on a sporadic (and sometimes unexpected) basis. So it’s essential that you’re in a financial position that allows you to remain afloat as you’re establishing your clientele and refining your skills as a Realtor in those first few months.
Be Ready for a Full Time Career
While there are some successful part-time Realtors, it’s difficult to succeed when you’re just starting out with your real estate career.
If you do have another job, it’s important that it’s a flexible position that allows you to invest a significant amount of time in your real estate career. You’ll also need the flexibility to cater to your real estate clients whenever the need arises.
Flexibility is really key for Realtors, as you really need to strike when the iron is hot, so to speak. You’ll see a dramatic increase in the number of sales (and profits) when you can cater to your clients’ every whim when it comes to viewing a property for sale.
Leverage Technology to Grow Your Real Estate Career
Technology is crucial for growing your career in real estate, while maximizing your limited time. Leveraging online marketing opportunities, building a real estate website and maintaining a prominent social media presence will not only help you to pull in more clients and listings, but you’ll also be able to stay in touch with clients more effectively and you’ll find that promoting your listings is much easier and more affordable.
Technology is a vital part of the equation for today’s Realtors and it’s part of what sets the most successful real estate agents apart from the Realtors who are barely staying afloat.
Notably, Realtor Judy Szablak recently had her online marketing course for Realtors approved by the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection, so she will soon be teaching her new course to Southern Connecticut Realtors beginning in May.
