With the Real Estate market beginning to pick up , I have decided to interview agents to add to our team of 15. After conducting only a few interviews I am amazed at how many people come in to the interview thinking this is a part time job, flexible schedule and want to work from home for the most part.
I guess I have been fortunate in that my team all work hard every day to make their living. Looking around my office now i see 9 agents pounding away out their computer and putting in time. 3 are out showing property and only a few are not here. I feel it is important to come into the office for the "team" but also for production. It is too easy to get sidetracked at home and to put your business last.
So why is it that many believe Realtors jobs to be easy street? Even potential Realtors believe they can golf all morning, go to lunch , take a nap and then work an hour or two? I know I am higher then most brokers in my expectations in agents, but come on people, nothing in life comes for free.
I would love to hear others opinions and thoughts on this.
