The second most important thing you need as a real estate agent is FLEXIBILITY. Everyone thinks they might be flexible, but the life of an agent isn’t just working 9-5. On one hand, you set your own schedule. However, in order to be successful in real estate, you need to be flexible. When a client calls, you have to be ready to go.
What does being flexible look like?
It means answering your phone (all the time) so that you’re there for your clients. Yes, this means answering the phone early Sunday morning or while cooking dinner.
It also means having an understanding that your leads may initially inquire on a million-dollar property, but then close on a $300k home. So have a flexible mindset on showing homes that may be higher or lower.
You might also need to be flexible in scheduling open houses or previewing homes in a new neighborhood. Remember who it is that you serve… your leads (and soon-to-be clients).
We’re sharing this information to help give you realistic expectations of being a real estate agent. It can be hard if you’re juggling another full-time job or you’re not prepared when the phone rings.
Be sure to join us next week as we share another strategy to help you kick off your real estate career.
