Getting Started in Real Estate

Real Estate Agent with Ready Real Estate


    Getting started in real estate isn't as easy as I thought! I have a lot more respect for Agents! Especially the new ones trying to beat the odds. Building your business sounds alot easier said then done.

   I'm Luke and i live in Aubrey , TX i'm currently 24 and i've always had a passion for Real Estate! Buying my first home at 20, i knew that this is what i wanted to do!  Well here i am, I just quit a $45,000 a year job installing High-End Home audio/Video equipment. (which by the way i am still doing with a couple of buddies to keep some money coming in) Now i am in my second month getting kind of worried. I've been going out everyday putting my name everywhere i can. Not ALOT of people are looking for new 24 year old Agents to help them find or sell a home.  They want experienced and older real estate agents to help make this huge decision in there life!

   Despite of what i am hearing from local real estate agents and homeowners around, i'm not going to give up! I'll keep fighting until i get business.  I read in CNN - "Virginia Tech researchers estimate Dallas-Fort Worth area will add 6.4 million new people and 2.8 million new units of housing in the next 2 decades... Dallas is on track to post the best returns on housing of any major U.S. city during the next 2 years."  I started thinking about this stat... If i can get 20-30 transactions a year out of the 2.8 million NEW units (not even counting the pre-owned units) then i will be a successful agent. I just need to be patient and work hard!

   The biggest thing I've noticed in this industry is you need to have a niche. Something that separates you from all the rest.  Well, its not experience, its not being older.. It is what i offer to Clients that alot of agents don't. SAVINGS! Sometimes Thousands! Just as much work, but a better value for the consumer!!! That is my niche!

Luke, try not to be too discouraged. I know several agents who are still part-time after 18 months. It can take a couple of months to get the word out, hang in there and God Bless.
