7 Challenges New Agents Face
...And How to Overcome Them
START YOUR REAL ESTATE BUSINESS ON A SOLID FOUNDATION
I'm taking you inside the life of a Realtor. I'm walking you, step-by-step, through what you can expect to face and feel as you start your career as a real estate agent. Not only are you getting a peek into exactly what you need to be prepared for, but I'm giving you solutions and activities you can do to overcome those challenges. I'm preparing you set realistic expectations so you can spend less time being stressed and frustrated and more time on lead generation and working towards that six figure income you desire.
Over 75% of new agents fail within their first five years as an agent. You don't want to become a statistic. But you need a plan. You need to know what to expect. These two are the #1 problem every new real estate agent faces. And while there are a ton of resources out there to help you create and structure your business, you don't have the time to sort through what will work and what is junk.
You don't know, what you don't know
How crazy is it that you are expected to start and run a business that you know very little about. You may love houses and love working with people, but that does very little to prepare you a successful career in real estate. I've created systems within my courses that tell you HOW to become a real estate agent with a thriving business.
New agents don't know what to expect
When I started my career in real estate over 20 years ago, I didn't have a clue. It didn't help that I didn't do much research, and the research I did was vague, at best. I depended on my instructor in my pre-licensing class to provide insight. Big mistake.
Is this your story? Are you feeling stressed and frustrated because you don't know where to start in your business? Not to worry. I have laid everything out for you. It's important for you to know what to expect. When you don't know what to expect your mind goes to the worst possible scenerio.
You need a plan
So that’s why I'm here. To show you the 7 Challenges you can expect to face as a new real estate agent. Not only do I expose the Challenges, I give you the tactics and strategies to overcome them. I want you to know what you've signed up for as a real estate agent and I want you to take this job seriously.
The bottom line is this. If you want to have a successful real estate business, you need to build it on a rock solid foundation. You could try to do it alone, but that will take you more time. If you are anything like me, when I started in real estate, I wanted to experience immediate success.
I can help you do that.
I've been where you are. I know all of the challenges you're facing because I faced them when I was a new agent. I know what it's like to...
- Think that my pre-licensing class prepared me to become a real estate agent...but it really didn't
- Feel lost and uncertain about what I should be doing
- Get frustrated for not having any business
You don't have to struggle with self-doubt like I did. I've mapped out everything you need to know...no more guessing if you're doing the right thing.
Isn't it time you stopped wasting precious time and invested in yourself?
