People from all walks-of-life have become highly successful in the field of real estate sales. Some have outgoing personalities, others are more soft-spoken. While some have sales experience, Realtors® have started with a variety of backgrounds ranging from teacher to truck driver, homemaker to business manager.
Although there is no "cookie-cutter" image of a top real estate agent there are some common qualities recognized in these professionals. Many agents with six figure incomes are:
Goal Oriented. Real estate agents must stay committed to their own success. They must be able to establish realistic goals and plan how they will accomplish them.
Self Starters. Real estate agents are primarily their own boss. They establish their own work schedule and determine what they will do when they are at work. Real estate sales is not an 8 to 5 job. Successful agents are self-motivated, and plan their own time, they usually work long hours, are well organized, and are hard workers.
Good Communicators. Real estate agents must be able to make themselves understood. They must convince people to make a decision. They enjoy talking to people one-on-one and must be great listeners. They write contracts, letters and marketing ads.
Highly Ethical. Buyers and sellers of real estate rely on their agent to advise them about numerous aspects of their real estate transaction. A Realtor's® advice could lead to a significant financial gain or loss for their clients. Real estate agents must be diligent in staying up-to-date on the most recent changes in real estate law, financing options, and practices. Agents must always keep the best interests of their clients in mind when making recommendations.
Self Confident. Real estate agents must believe in themselves. They consider themselves to be "a people person" who enjoys getting to know others. They are comfortable introducing themselves to strangers and asking for business. They must be strong in their convictions and must negotiate on their clients' behalf .
