How do I become a successful real estate agent?

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 16:07:30 +0000

I'm currently a 19 year old freshman at a college in the US. I've been struggling to figure out what I want to do with my life for the past couple of years, but I recently did some hard thinking and confidently chose to pursue real estate as a career. I really think real estate is the right choice for me and I want to do as much as I can now to further my goal of becoming a real estate agent/realtor.

I realize that you don't need a college degree to become an agent, but I really want to finish my college education and get a degree in economics (and possibly engineering). I think a degree would really help me out in the real world and I could make a lot of connections since the school I go to is huge and one of the more prestigious schools in the US.

I plan on graduating college when I'm ~22 and starting my real estate career right after. I've already looked up online how to become a licensed and practicing real estate agent in my state once I graduate, so I'm not really asking how to do all that. My question is what should I be doing now and in my future college years to prepare myself? Should I be reading up on real estate news? What can I do to prepare myself and get into the mindset of a successful realtor? I live in Northeast America right now but I really want to move to California/New York/Florida and practice real estate in those states once in ready. How difficult would this be?

What should I be doing at this point in time to ready myself for a successful career in real estate? If there's any real estate agents on this sub or someone who can shed some light on this matter I would be grateful. Thank you!

Mum telling off an idiot real estate agent.

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 13:31:39 +0000

I'm helping my mum buy a house at the moment and most of the real estate agents have been pretty good, but today we dealt with a real idiot. First, a little set up.

There will be 4 people living in the house: my mum, my grandmother, my husband and me. I'm my grandmother's full time carer and my husband and I can't afford a place of our own with room for grandma, so we live with my mum. As a result, we're after a 3, preferably 4, bedroom place. Either my mum or I have explained our situation to every real estate agent we've contacted. Most agents actually listen to us, but this guy today was a real piece of work.

He was an older guy, probably mid 60s and a real "good ol boy". We made it pretty clear to him after he mentioned kids at the first house that they were not a factor in our house hunt, but he knew better, of course. He kept bingoing me all though looking at the first house and then at the 2nd house till I flat out told him "Just shut up about kids, ok? I'm here to look at houses, not talk about babies" to which I just got a condescending smirk before he turned his back on me to bingo my mum! The conversation went a little like this:

Agent: "Don't worry, you'll be a grandma in the next year or so. She's nearly at the age where popping out a rugrat will be all she thinks about."

Mum: "I think my daughter knows her thoughts on kids better than you do."

Agent: "Trust me, I know women and you all want babies eventually."

That really pissed my mum off. She looked him dead in the eye and said "You know, if you actually listened to your clients instead of being a condescending dick, you'd probably have made enough commission to have retired by now." and we walked out.
