As the real estate market improves I am sure the real estate schools in Florida will start filling up with new students. The real estate business is not what many believe it to be - nice clothes, nice car, nice money.
It is not all drive a nice car, show a few houses, attend a closing and go to the bank although a successful real estate career does include the last two of these.key points for success in this business.
There is a lot more to being a successful real estate agent.
It is about understanding the process and being able to handle the details. It is all about being able to understand your customer's goals and feelings. It is about having a customer who does not remember all the details (problems or issues) throughout the process. It is about staying in touch. You do not have former clients. You need to foster a client for life relationship. You must stay in touch to stay in the client's mind when the opportunity for a referral comes up. You need to perform every day as if your reputation depends on the outcome (it does).
Let me finish the second sentence from above here... The real estate business is not what many believe it to be - nice clothes, nice car, nice money - but it can be with the right effort.
