There Is No Magic Bullet For Real Estate Success

As real estate professionals, we are often bombarded with numerous gadgets, programs, classes, courses, books, speakers, and emails promising to be the key to success in our industry. We need to be discerning and critical about these offerings. You don't have to buy it. Why is it that so many people get into real estate only to be sold a quick way to learn and prosper? It's important to question these promises and consider the motivations behind them. We also must warn newer agents and encourage them to take all the training available through their broker and local boards. Look for free courses on real estate taught by successful instructors and professionals. Take all your required CE classes, but don't stop there. Check out REALTOR® associations for free training in subjects you are interested in. 


Have You Attended The Tuesday Zooms? These are for real!

Our AR weekly Zooms offer the best education, the most knowledge, and the best value anywhere. They have been going on for over four years, every week, on any real estate topic you can think of, with some of the most knowledgeable leaders in the industry. Yes, it is free, and I am encouraging all AR members to join in, do a presentation, or suggest a topic or speaker that interests you.

 Beware of programs claiming guaranteed success in real estate. Focus on sustainable strategies aligned with long-term goals and avoid quick fixes promising overnight success.

Think how those touting quick success stuff answer this question.

Good morning Margaret. We have a choice of what car to buy. Like cars there are many real estate trainers out there who can put forth highly successful agents following their program. Like clothing one size does not fit all. Choose wisely! One way to do that is attending free seminars to learn the possibilities. Enjoy your day.

In your successful career, you were able to train and witness the many levels of RE education.  You can share your knowledge, but the student needs to be ready.

Hello, Miss Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400 - I like to amp up my ongoing development and education with courses taught by attorneys, I just love it when one attorney expresses an opinion and another attorney expresses another opinion and you know what, both are "right".  The twists and turns of legal minds. 

Make yourself a fabulous day!

You are right. Having two legal experts with different opinions and sometimes opposite answers to the same question is so interesting.

Hi Margaret,
The ease of access to educational opportunities is so much greater than when we started in the business.  No magic bullet, is right. The business is constantly evolving and those who wish to thrive must evolve with it.

Carol Williams, you are correct that the ease of access to many educational opportunities is much greater today than when we started in real estate.

Good morning Margaret,

There are so many avenues to learn things in today real estate environment and our Zoom meetings have a variety of topics and we always learn something new. Those of us who have been in real estate understand real estate is a relationship business and all the shiny new tools are not going to give you instant success. It's going to take hard work, understanding your market and always keeping on top of changes in our industry that we can share with clients when developing relationships and trust.

Margaret,  If nothing else, from the NAR proceedings, it has come to light that not only agents but public in general have NO idea the amount of work needed to even be semi successful in Real Estate.  Crying shame.  Mark

I absolutely agree with you about there being no magic bullet for real estate success, Margaret.  When I was first licensed in November 1981, the interest rate was 18 1/2%.  Yet, I had unbelievable luck, while otherwise successful agents were having a difficult time.  I think much of that luck came from choosing the best office to associate myself with and having a number of the agents within take me under their wing, to get me started on the right foot.
