Whether you’re a dentist, a writer or a real estate agent, there’s a significant learning curve when it comes to gaining the experience you need to really thrive and rise to the head of the pack in your field. You need to have knowledge in so many different areas, from marketing and advertising, to real estate laws and regulations, to sales, sales strategies and even the psychology of the buying and selling process. So it can be very helpful for a Realtor — especially those who lack experience in a particular real estate niche — to have access to a consultant who can offer guidance and advice. That’s exactly what we’ll explore in today’s article from Southern Connecticut Coldwell Banker Realtor Judy Szablak, founder of Szablak Consulting.
What Can a Real Estate Consultant Do for You?
In the course of your work, you may encounter an especially challenging situation where you need to find a workaround to a significant obstacle. The process of buying and selling real estate can be challenging and less experienced Realtors may lack the strategies and insights they need to handle the situation fast and effectively.
And it’s not just inexperienced novice real estate agents who can benefit from working with a real estate consultant. Even Realtors who have been working in the field for 5 or 10 years may encounter challenging scenarios that they’ve never dealt with before. What’s more, there are many different real estate niches, including residential real estate, commercial real estate, real estate investing, real estate rentals, seasonal and vacation rentals and distressed properties such as REOs, foreclosures and short sales. At some point in your career, you may choose to switch to a different niche, which carries its own unique challenges.
For example, when Southern Connecticut Realtor Judy Szablak got started in commercial real estate, she realized that she would need to get very innovative with her marketing since her commercial properties didn’t have the advantage of being listed on the MLS. So while some homes will more or less market themselves by simply being listed on the MLS, this is not the case for commercial real estate listings. A Realtor in this same scenario may find themselves in need of ideas and advice to take their career to the next level.
Even the more experienced individuals who have their own ideas and strategies can gain useful insight from another real estate professional, as you can avoid the bumps and bruises associated with gaining insight “the hard way.” In many situations, you can also get advice that allows you to increase your efficacy or productivity.
While you may think “Oh, well I can always ask my colleagues,” this isn’t always the case. Colleagues who work locally are technically your competitor, even if they work for the same brokerage firm. This fact means that they may hold back, even if it’s on a subconscious level. And the reality is that you never know when a less-than-ethical individual may have bad intentions designed to lead you astray.
When you work with a real estate consultant, you will have no doubt about their priorities and objectives — to help you succeed, boost productivity and increase your earnings. In addition to answering questions and addressing any issues that arise in the course of your work as a Realtor, your real estate consultant can also help by serving as an ally who offers encouragement, while also coaching you as you set and work toward goals. In fact, consultants are very effective in promoting career development and even personal development, as they create a sense of accountability that drives you to grow by pushing you to work toward your objectives.
