SUCCESS??? What It Takes…
What does it take to be a successful real estate agent these days? This is a loaded question. I think first and foremost you have to decide what success means to you.
-Is SUCCESS completing a certain volume of sales each year?
-Is SUCCESS earning a certain dollar amount above and beyond your expenses?
-Is SUCCESS being the top producer in your office, company, city or country?
-Is SUCCESS being a household name?
Once you determine what SUCCESS is to you, then you have to be willing to pay the price for it. There is a price to pay for everything in this life. And sometimes these costs are not readily apparent.
- Are YOU willing to study and learn your craft?
-Are YOU willing to commit to marketing yourself to make the phone ring?
-Are YOU willing to answer the phone when it does ring?
- Are YOU willing to set your schedule around your client’s schedule?
-Are YOU willing to work with a diverse group of people for the benefit of your clients?
-Are YOU willing to accept no closings means no money, but your expenses will keep coming?
Finally, you have to put a plan in place to achieve SUCCESS. Once this plan is in place, work the plan and adjust it as necessary until you start to see the fruits of success. To maintain your success you have to be consistent and persistent because just like success arrives it will leave.
I have been a real estate agent since September 2001.
And beside what I detailed above, I have learned that SUCCESS for Stacey Williams is staying true to my unique style as an individual, accepting the business that fits well into my niche, a willingness to stretch myself to grow my skill set, treating others how I would like to be treated (even when others don't respond in kind) and finding balance between my business life and personal life which I tend to mix a lot!
