See what actual agents do in their day-to-day activities so that you can determine if real estate is right for you.
Deliver Exceptional Customer Service
This is by far one of the most important parts of your real estate career. If personal interaction with others is an issue, then maybe you should consider a different profession. It could seem like a generic, catch-all phrase but real estate professionals — the good ones, at least — are serious about it. In fact, according to the 2018 State of the Real Estate Profession study, 86 percent of current real estate agents and brokers rate a superior client experience as the most important quality in a successful real estate career.
How Do You Deliver Exceptional Customer Service?
How do real estate professionals deliver this customer service? Usually, it’s those above-and-beyond details they remember — finding that perfect home for them that’s just come on the market, taking time daily to follow up with your customers, remembering birthdays, and answering their emails promptly and with correct information. So, when you see “outstanding customer service” in a job description, this means you must be organized enough to remember all the little things on a daily basis.
Draft And Prepare Offers And Paperwork
This is another biggie. You must be organized, or at least have someone to keep you organized to properly prepare all offers, contracts and that all deadlines are being met. If you’re the kind of person who has trouble staying organized don’t panic because you can always learn. We have a great list of tools that make the lives of real estate agents easier that will help you master this skill and enhance your real estate career.
You need to have a working knowledge of the laws, regulations and ethics of our profession and follow and respect them 100%. Many agents will try and skirt the laws or code of ethics. This either results in a suspension or loss of license and a horrible reputation amongst your peers, So working within the rules, regulations and ethics of the industry should be your mindset.
Here at SRN Real Estate Pros each of our agents are guided by a standard set of our “Rules of Professional Conduct”.
Track And Advance Your Career Goals
Being a real estate professional means you’re going to have to get comfortable with sales because the business relies on discovering exactly what your customers wants, needs and can afford. We have training mentorship programs designed to help you ask the right questions so that you will receive the right answers from your customers a so that you’re showing them the right property for their lifestyle, desires, etc.
Who’s My Boss? Not A Real Estate Job, But A Career.
As a real estate agent, you’re also your own boss. This means that you’ll be responsible for whether your business grows or flatlines. Because of that, part of your job description as a real estate agent will be paying attention to the business aspect — how much you spent selling a home, for example, or if you’re hitting your growth targets. Setting your schedule, committing to proper follow-up, lead generation, etc. while still having a life.
Develop Business Leads
Because you’re in charge of your clients as a real estate professional, we suggest that you to develop your own business leads. This could come in the form of cold calling, email outreach, or developing word-of-mouth leads through your network.

Stage And Show Properties And Assist Buyers
Being a real estate professional isn’t all paperwork, computer time prospecting or hitting the pavement. Most of your job is building that personal relationship with your customers. Going beyond the norm to deliver outstanding service, being the local expert and becoming a trusted individual that they will trust you, with what is most likely the largest financial decision of their lives.
You doing the nitty-gritty of getting a house sold or finding a new home for your buyers, the “whatever it takes attitude to get the job done”.
Develop Long Term Relationships
Most agents and brokerages will complete a transaction and then completely forget about that customer. This is where you develop your referral base and after a few years you can depend on repeat business from their friends and family as your sphere grows. We offer coaching and software system to assist you in developing your sphere of influence.
Is Becoming A Realtor Easy Money?
Many are led to believe that getting your real estate license is all you need to do to become successful. Unfortunately, that is furthest from the truth. The turn over in the industry is almost 95%. Many new agents won’t last a year and by the end of year two, the attrition rate is 85%. By year five, 90% are gone with many only working part time.
Sounds harsh but it’s the facts in today’s world. The financial and personal freedom aspects of the profession is fantastic, but you must pay your dues to get there. To become a top producing agent, you must put in the time, sweat, blood and tears to achieve that status. We have the systems to help make you successful, but you must have the drive and ambition to complete the package.
We’re here to help prevent your failure in real estate from happening, but you must be ready to step up to the challenge.
