How Long Have You Been........

Real Estate Agent with Prestige Homes of The Tri Cities, Inc. CALL....423-341-6954 TN and VA

How Long Have You Been........In Real Estate? This is a question I guarantee we all have been asked many many times over the years. It is a great question and I totally understand why people ask it. People want to know they are dealing with someone who is aware of what they are matter what it is! My brother has a sales training company and travels all over the country with one of his main topics being constantly trying to better yourself through education that is relevant to your industry.

So ask yourself this one question........have you been in real estate the totally number of years you've had your license....or have you been in it only ONE YEAR that many times?

I'm trying to show you that most people in most fields stop trying to learn anything after the first year....they know it all after that one short time frame. A good example is the number of agents that are on AR....You don't do things like this if you are stuck in the mud and think you know everything. This is just one of the many things that we do everyday to hopefully make us different!

But think of all the people we work with that think we are crazy for spending the time and money that we spend on trying to constantly upgrade ourselves to the next level of service that we can give our clients and prospects that they never will be able too!

So.....hats off to all of you that never stop wanting to grow and learn!

Thanks for the reminder! It is so true that we should never stop learning. I have only been in business 7 years and I can look back at the way business was done back in 2003. It looks like it was in the stone ages... with us agents jumping on the "hot sheet" every morning as it was faxed to the offfice. Hardly anybody had a website & many agents still had pagers!!!

And now we can have all the information about listings wherever we go thanks to smart phones & wireless internet... It's just amazing & we just have to keep being on the technology train. Forums such as this one (activerain) has been a mine of information for me since I joined.

GOOD AFTERNOON ROB!  I've been in this long enough to know that I won't be one of the "well it worked back then - it'll work now" agents.  Learning, growing and even more so - just keeping up with things is what continually makes us all better with people and what we do in general! -- Gab

Hi Rob, you are so right.  I really think that people here are working on future business.  AR is just one tool but for me it is also an amazing education.
