I reinvest 10% of my income annually into myself. I'm never the same agent today as I was last yer, I'm much more educated and experienced. Too many agents repeat year one, 20 times. I can honestly say I have had 20 very individual years of growth. I couldn't imagine doing business in 2020 like I did it in 1999.

Regardless of what business anyone is in, things are in a constant state of change and progression, so it's wise to keep current.  That can be done in a variety of ways, usually involving an investment of time or money or both.

I don't just understand my business, I overstand my business. Yes, after 15 years in the business I understand more than I even wish I did. Am I open to learning new things? Of course. Technology changes & you need to be on top of that. The places to best market your business & listings change. For some reason they think I need to take a refresher every 2 years (Continuing Education) so I sit through that. If you aren't evolving you are dead.

I think I really understand my business but also have always invested time and money to grow. Things don't ever stay the same, business is much different than when I started many years ago.  Some things stay the same, just the way to go about it is different.

I do not think you really understand, really know, my businesss.

Does that make you less of a real estate professional?

Of course not!!!!
That is what is so great about real estate, I don't have to be like you, know the same things you know or even to do it your way.

That does not make be less of a real estate professional.

But your question must really be accompanied by what real estate professionals, anyone for that matter, for what  are they willing to PAY.

Better, Newer, Faster, Cheaper, Easier.  Learning something NEW is not on that list.
