13 Books To Help Grow Your Real Estate Business

Reblogger Will Hamm

Are you a reader, if you are, Carol Williams came up with a great list that you should look into!

Original content by Carol Williams


Real estate agents are always looking for the next magic bullet to help grow their business.  

With that in mind,  I've put together a lucky list of 13 books that are popular among veteran real estate agents to help them grow their business and keep life balanced.  When it comes to reading books, there is no unlucky number, so I thought 13 would be the perfect length for this post.   


These aren't necessarily specific to real estate but will help you gain perspective in many areas of life and improve your business.   Personally, I enjoy audiobooks or Audible.com because they are so convenient. That said, I have hundreds of hard copy books too.  Whatever works for you is what you should do.  

I am linking each one in the list to their Amazon order page but this is not because I recommend you buy from Amazon. It is purely for the purpose of reading individual descriptions and reader reviews. Personally, I recommend buying local if at all possible.  If you do buy from the links, be sure to check which format is being offered.  Some are CDs, some audio, mostly actual printed books.

These suggestions are not in any particular order, so pick and choose and work through them over time. Set aside time every single day to read (or listen) and you'll be amazed at the change in your attitude and your business success.  

How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
The Millionaire Real Estate Agent by Gary Keller
The One Thing by Gary Keller
The Art of Exceptional Living by Jim Rohn
The Power of Focus 10th Anniveersary Edition by Canfield and Hansen
The e-Myth Revisited by Michael Gerber
Sell With Soul by Jennifer Allen Hagedorn
7 Levels of Communication by Michael Maher

The Miracle Morning for Real Estate Agents by Elrod, Maher, Reese & Kinder 
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
The New Psychology of Achievement of Achievement by Brian Tracy
See You At The Top by Zig Ziglar

As you read these books, I suggest you take notes (but only if you're not driving).  As you come across an idea that resonates with you, do this:
1) Write down the specific idea
2) Write down how YOU can implement this idea
3) Write down when you will implement this idea
4) Do it!

Yours for success,
Carol

A great list of many good old stand-bys, Will. But I will admit that I don't read many books like this... rarely find anything really new in them at this stage of my life and I'd rather just read for pleasure when I have the time to do so.

I have never been much for reading or all of the motivational stuff, but I think I own a couple of those, so perhaps I should read them, haha.

Will, very nice choice for a re-blog. I haven't read a couple of these and will add them to my list. I think it's important to always continue educating ourselves and find I pick up at least one new tip from reading educational books. Think and Grow Rich is a favorite.
