Millennial Real Estate Agents Needed

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

According to NAR, the National Association of Realtors, the median  age of all Realtors is 58 years old. Many will work indefinitely because of Keller Williams Agentstheir love of their career or because of financial reasons. But, there are a large portion of agents in the Baby Boomer generation and beyond that will choose to retire. That leaves a lot of opportunities for Millennials entering the field. Most agents that retire have a solid book of past clients. It would be beneficial to both parties to create a plan together that will have the  retiring agent  pass along their data base to a younger career focused agent and work out a referral plan for future business.

What does it take for a young person to become a successful real estate agent? Self motivation and discipline top the list. Being your own boss is delightful, but responsibly for doing the daily activities that will bring you success is essential. It also helps to love what you do. Real estate agents ranked number one on the CareerBliss' 2013 list of the happiest professions in America. 

At Keller Williams there is a team approach to learning. You'll sit in classes with both new and seasoned agents, sharing ideas. You will have access to interviews with successful Keller Williams agents speaking about what they did to become and stay successful. It is a very supportive enviornment. Most offices have a mentor program so a new agent does not need to go it alone.

Who knows, maybe you will be a 30 under 30 award recipient!

Great post- and of course it is from a fellow KW agent talking about the wonderful education that KW offers!

Millennials will not need real estate agents. The push for equal distribution and social equality will demand government allocate housing according to needs. There is a little saracasm here...

I am an "early" baby boomer and have no plans to retire. I actually work with a lot of millenial clients, who seem to like the experience and maturity I bring to the table after 20 years in the corporate world and 25 in real estate. They appreciate my long experience in negotiating and working with people. I've never been convinced that the best agents are young ones and most of the more mature clients I've worked with prefer a more mature agent as well.
