While having basic knowledge of how to sell, the dedication to and the stamina to sell, and the tough skin to put up with the ups and downs of the industry is required in our candidates, we also look for the following:
Aspiring real estate agents must complete high school. While a college degree isn’t a necessity, postsecondary institutes offer certificate, associate’s and bachelor’s programs in real estate. These programs include coursework in real estate law, investing and finance. Some programs may integrate courses that are required by state licensing boards into the program.
The BLS states that all 50 states and the District of Columbia require agents to be licensed. In order to become licensed, individuals must pass an exam that covers real estate concepts. Some states may have educational requirements that must be completed before individuals sit for an exam. Licenses must be kept current, and may be done by completing continuing education requirements.
This is number one on the list and should be at the top of yours for obvious reasons. Honesty is not a quality a successful real estate professional can exist without.
Honesty requires that candidates be upfront and transparent in all that they do. Honesty is telling the truth, even when the truth isn’t pretty. Honesty means that candidates can conduct business in a sincere and trustworthy manner at all times, no matter what the consequences.
Passion is addictive. It draws people to you as they sense the excitement you feel about what you are privileged to do every day.
Successful real estate agents do not act like they are worn out, beaten down and kicked to the curb by the industry. Their enthusiasm is not over-rated hype; it is undeniably one of the most important tools in any agent’s arsenal. It can and will make candidates indubitably attractive to those clients they wish to connect with.
Building a business will not allow candidates to take a back seat to opportunity. Building a successful business requires that they step out in faith and embrace risk, better yet, calculated risk. It is all about taking the risk and reaping the reward—you want candidates who can do this with confidence.
Successful real estate agents pick themselves up and dust off the fear, anxiety and self-loathing that may have seeped in from yesterday’s events. They look rejection straight in the eye and roar into the day that can and will be.
Successful agents are resolute in what their vision of tomorrow should look like. They are bold, brash and indifferent to the small voice in their head telling them to let it go, pack it up and move on.
Potential clients want to know that they are important to your company. They need to “feel” valuable and know that your real estate agents respect their needs, desires and their opinions. If a candidate can give people what they want, clients will provide them with what they need to do their job well.
