The Road to Experience – The Abridged Version



Helping someone gain experience is never easy. One can always try to be helpful, but there are just too many questions to be answered, and only so much time to do it. What experiences should I share? What events should I include? Which ones do I leave out? If I tell this story, will it have the intended effect? What if I don’t sufficiently answer the question, or provide what the person is looking for?


To gain experience in anything here, all one has to do is ask…or look. Here on ActiveRain, so many have provided simple, yet brilliant, ways in which those of us who are just starting out in whatever endeavor (whether it be as new real estate agents or new bloggers, it does not matter) can get better at our business, whether it be through sharing advice, or providing new tools to use.


Sometimes less is definitely more. I was recently asked by a new Rainer in my area, Aaron Ramkalawan, to share some tips to help him become a better agent. I had started out writing The Road To Experience... with just that purpose in mind, but realized that my personal narrative might not have been the best vehicle in which to deliver the results that he was expecting. So, I’ve compiled a list of blogs that I’ve come across in the Rain that address very pointedly the question: How do I become a better real estate agent? I’m quite sure that there’s more, so if anyone wants to suggest some other blogs that you’ve seen, leave a link in the comments!
