Submitting Your First Official Offer

By
Real Estate Agent with Paramount Realty Soluitons

I started my journey to become a realtor almost 6 months ago, and I had the opportunity to submit a buyers offer for the first time.

I am extremely grateful for the company I am working for and I feel accomplished, but now it is a matter of creating more leads for more business. 

How long do you think it took to really get your business into a regular flow? 

Thanks,

Gabe

 The harder you work, the luckier you get...be sure that your brokerage offers a lot of training...or perhaps the option to shadow a more experienced agent...talk to your broker...see what she/he recommends...if you don't get lots of help...look for a broker who does offer it.

Babe, Congrats and welcome to the business. Things are so different now it is hard to say how long it will take to get your groove. If you work hard, smarter and steady it will come. My came the very next month after I got licensed. I don't think a single month has passed without a paycheck. Some months have been over the top and wonderful and others very lean. Just budget and save when the money starts flowing in..

You are doing great by starting in a good time where things are on the way up. You can get all of your processes in place so that when you are busy you will be able to handle it. Just the fact that you joined ActiveRain and are out blogging means you are putting the rubber to the road and doing some of the right things. Focus on setting good habits with time management, letting people know what you do and work habits then get out to social events. Then it's just a matter of being at the right place at the right time and having your ears open. At the end of the day everyone likes to talk about real estate. So opportunities are always there.

My definition of "regular flow" evolved with my career. It took 90 days to get my first accepted deal (I had an investor friend). Probably 1.5 years in before there was a steady flow of business. Of course I started out part time so this contributed as well.

 The neat thing I am noticing four years in is the "free" business that comes your way. I will be doing something different and the phone will ring. "Can you help me sell my house"? Like music to my ears!

congratulations ... he first one is the sweetest and hardest ... getting regular business depends on you and how hard you work ... this is work ... also be a sponge and learn as much as you can ... take all the classes your association offers ... but be careful what you spend your money on (coaching programs can take your money quickly although some are good and can help)

Thanks for all the great comments, I am really enjoying active rain, I am doing it part time now for the time being. I am a teacher and would hate to leave teaching completely, so it is great that real estate is flexible and I can hopefully make enough so that my wife can continue to be at home with our 7 month old.
