Have you ever met a real estate agent who has nothing good to say about most everyone they meet? Have you ever met a real estate agent who looks down his nose at people who aren’t making as much money as he? Have you ever met a real estate agent who willingly helps as many people as possible? Have you ever met a real estate agent who encourages others by telling them it only takes a little time and they, too, can make it? What’s it going to be? Are you the negative or the positive in someone’s life?
Success comes in different shapes to different people, and not everyone measures their success based solely on the size of their commission checks. Success can be in the form of knowing you made a difference in someone’s life or success can be in the form of knowing you don’t have to worry about paying the mortgage payment next month. What’s it going to be? How are you measuring your success?
Every single real estate agent in the country began in the same spot. Every one of them had to have passed some sort of state mandated real estate course. Passing that course does not come easy to some people, and passing that course represents a success in each student’s life. During the month of September we tested a total of 35 students in Florida and Alabama, and each and every student passed the exam. We measure that as a successful month. We didn’t measure the success of September by the tuition fees we collected. TEAM Hughes Real Estate School measures the success by the number of students who passed. As I spoke with each student, I saw excitement, relief, humility, satisfaction and pride. I did not see any student elevating himself or herself above others; I did not see greed in anyone’s demeanor, and I saw and heard great positivity.
What’s it going to be? These students are not yet tainted by the success or failure of becoming a great real estate agent. These students still believe they can do it and they can achieve success. It’s not until they soak in other agents’ attitudes, other agents’ opinions and other agents’ negative or positivity that they lose their innocence. It’s up to seasoned agents to encourage them, to help elevate them, and to share with them certain steps to success. There is and there always will be room for new agents. We should embrace them, not treat them as second-class citizens. These new agents are going through the very same things that caused each one of us to become who we are.
What’s it going to be? Will you help or hinder? There are 35 potential success stories out there right now who need you to help write some chapters. Maybe if you help them, your success will come in a way you never imagined! Join TEAM Hughes in encouraging them to succeed in the next step of the ladder – their state exam.
