This is my two week replace as a 19-year-old licensed actual property agent – get pleasure from!
This journey as an actual property agent has already been loopy! I nonetheless have rather a lot to study, however I’m grateful for the whole lot that has occurred to this point each good and unhealthy.
For those that do not know me, my identify is Zachariah McBride. I’m a newly licensed 19 12 months previous actual property agent within the state of Maryland. Though I haven’t got that a lot to doc, as talked about within the video, there are three issues that I wish to share with you: the place I’m studying new agent materials, my outcomes thus far after 2-3 weeks of being an agent, and a few issues that I wasn’t conscious of earlier than beginning this profession.
FIRST & FOREMOST, there’s a lot to study while you first get your license. Once you get your license and are sponsored by a dealer, you will get began promoting and representing instantly; nonetheless, understanding this introduced me some nerves. It introduced me nerves as a result of I knew if I ever got here throughout a scenario the place I used to be representing consumers or sellers, I’d do not know what to do.
Which is why I’ve been taking each single coaching class offered by the dealer. In addition to this, I’ve been studying on-line by means of Ricky Carruth’s Zero to Diamond program (https://zerotodiamond.com/) and Graham Stephan’s Real Estate Agent Academy (https://the-real-estate-agent-academy.teachable.com/courses/enrolled/260639). Doing all of this retains my day full and helps me have a greater sense of course when navigating by means of this profession.
SECOND, you may’t simply study and never take motion. My mentor talked about to me that I should not wait till I do know the whole lot with a purpose to search offers. His recommendation was to get on the market and make one thing occur with what you realize. Most individuals may assume that’s loopy, however it’s the fact. If you might be ready till you realize the whole lot, you’ll be ready eternally as a result of you’ll by no means know the whole lot. Get on the market, embrace all experiences, and study from them.
Given this, over the previous actual week of taking motion (the primary 1-2 weeks was a whole lot of studying and procrastinating), I’ve set two appointments, which can be cool to some, however I really feel as if I may have achieved higher.
The first two weeks was data overload for me. There are so many individuals in particular person and on-line you may study from and it will probably get a bit complicated. Even although I’m a brand new agent and do not have a lot recommendation to supply, I’d counsel learning 1-2 individuals who match who you might be as an individual and go after some offers. Once I bought this, it was a lot simpler to exit, search some offers, whereas nonetheless being myself and never some scripted robotic individuals could not relate to.
LASTLY, the sudden. The issues that caught me off guard after getting my license. Now there’s not rather a lot, however I believe each are value mentioning. For one, the price of becoming a member of a dealer and native board was not low-cost. In addition to this, if you’re looking for extra leads outdoors of those you get within the workplace, it might value you a fairly penny. With all this being stated, I would not let this scare you away from nonetheless following by means of with getting your license. I believe it’s best to simply use this as motivation to economize and work further exhausting to make it again.
That is just about it! If you made it this far thanks a lot for studying. Let me know within the remark part if there’s something on the earth I can do that can assist you!
