what suggestions would you give to people just starting in the business?

it seems so many people claim so many things... what's good, what's not?

it would be so easy to waste a lot of money...

Hi Paul,

There is so much advice to share it's hard to know where to start.  I just remember when we were new in the business every real estate 'home' magazine and advertiser hit us up for our business.  Choose your marketing CAREFULLY, talk to other agents to find what REALLY works for them, don't jump at something that sounds too good to be true.

We found the real estate magazines did NOT work for us.  But that's just us, it works great for others so we're not discouraging it.  However, you have to find what works for YOU.

Your advertising dollars are an investment.  You wouldn't blindly pick a stock in the stock market and invest!  So do your research with experienced agents to find a variety of advertising possibilities and start with one that works for you.

Much success to you!!!

Gosh ~ throwing darts at a list of stocks will net you a better return then throwing darts at advertisements.

I really hate to say it, but friends, family and networking will always be your best investment for your time and money and will get you a better return for your money and in life.

There are real estate firms we call 'body-shops' which do little more then let you hang your license and tell you how to work your 'sphere of influence', and once that is used up you're out of there. Usually they will just make you feel bad enough to leave on your own.

The good ones, if you are willing to work at it, will show you how to survive and build a business, and actually care about you.

Good Luck!

Just monitor where you spend your money.  Only do those things that are necessary.  Pay attention to the freebies listed on AR until you reach your goal.  I would still stay with them even after that. :)  Best wishes.
