One Year IN as a Agent

By
Real Estate Agent with Aspen Lane Real Estate

Today is my one year anniversary as Real Estate Agent. Wow.... this year has flown by! 

 

I have to say this year has been a blast. Even though this is a tough industry with what it seems like a million agents that you're competing with it is a challenge I love. Many new agents don't make it so I am thankful and blessed to be in this situation. 

This year has been a learning curve that has been full of interesting deals and situations that has even marveled experienced agents. What are the odds of a new agent getting so many in such a short amount of time? These "interesting deals" have only helped me learn quicker in what to do and how to handle the situations.

I would like to thank my Friend and Mentor, Belinda Spillman for all of her support, guidance and knowledge which has really made this first year so enjoyable. I would also like to give a shout out and thank you to Erin Bates for her support in last year.  

Well, I can't live in the past only learn from it.  I am off to find more clients so, I can make it to my second anniversary!!!

Congratulations on your First Year Anniversary as a REALTOR!  As a 20 year veteran I can tell you it's a challenging business but if you work hard, stay motivated and consistent you will be fine.  Honesty and Integrity will take you far.

Oh, by the way, I found out about you from Debbie Laity's message about being highlighted ... we were 2 of 3 picked for this weeks Saturday Subscriber Finds 65.  Looking forward to connecting and learning together!

Congratulations on your first year, Dan! I'm on my 8th and I still find myself learning new things all the time. This website is a great place to find out something new every day. I find it hard not to click on at least one article topic that sounds interesting in their daily emails. Good luck to you and keep up the great work!

You didn't mention how many deals you've done. I have 3 more months until my 1 year anniversary and I like to measure myself against other rookies. I am about halfway to my one year goal and most of the business I have done has been in the last 3 months.

Thank you everyone for all the support! I love my AR friends. 

I would suggest all new agents to use AR as their blogging. Not just for the platform but the knowledge and experience from the seasoned agents that come with it.

I would have to say my 1st and 5th were the toughest & took the most out of me. I think that lately there seems to be many a crazy deal or situation out there. Maybe less buyers? Don't know but there is always 'unique' drama.
