New to the biz

By
Real Estate Agent with Holland Realty L.L.C.

As of late, I have found that many of my blog replies consist of a comment and then me asking for advice on the subject, so, it has inspired me to ask the question: How many of us are new to the real estate business?

Some are concerned about letting on that they are new b/c they do not want the word "new" associated with there name in there market... as for me, I don't think "new" means "dumb", I'm not afraid to ask for advice or tips, and I definately want to be told that I'm wrong if I am wrong. I figure, if I associate my name with "new", in a very short time, I will be able to replace it with "experienced" much quicker than those who are struggling to gain all of the information on there own.

Having said that, all of you experienced real estate pros must remember what it was like to be new, if you've got any tips, I know that I and other new (admitting or not) professionals would be grateful.

(see, you can tell I'm new... any of you busy professionals probably wouldn't be spending 8:30 to 10:00 in the morning on ActiveRain writing blogs. LOL:)

I guess my advice would be to not forget to tell, e-mail, write, call everyone that you have ever known that you have a new career and don't forget to "ASK" for their "HELP" with referrals. You won't get referrals unless you "ASK"!!
