Welcome to your guide to getting your real estate license. We’re here with our handy steps and a handful of tips to help you on your way.
But before we dive in, let’s talk a little bit more about what it means to be a real estate agent. For starters, it’s important that you know this position is more than just passing the state licensing exam.
Consider that nobody wants to hire an agent who’s not prepared for the job and hasn’t put in the time and effort to become an expert in their field. You need expertise, drive, enthusiasm, and above all else, talent for real estate sales if you want to make it as an agent.
A great real estate agent is equal parts salesperson and advisor: someone who knows when to listen and when it’s time for action, someone who can read between the lines, someone who can identify needs before they’re fully realized by their client, and someone who makes clients feel like they’re being heard without losing sight of their own goals or the client’s dream home.
Whether you’re looking to make it in your first year as an agent or you’re just starting out as a new real estate agent, this guide is here to help. Keep reading to know what the real estate industry expects of you and how you can get started.
