Good Realtors have traits that are common to many professionals.
They pay attention to the details, they have outgoing personalities, they’re well-organized and don’t panic under pressure. Good Realtors keep up with their training, they behave ethically and they work hard for their clients.
But there are common attributes to good Realtors that are specific to the real estate industry. Whether you are new to real estate sales or an experienced agent, here are three tips for being a good Realtor:
Join the right real estate company.
Joining a leading organization with a winning record immediately gives agents a leg up over their competitors. The cachet of joining a top-performing organization will help you win clients because of your firm’s reputation.
That’s why 30 agents a month join Premiere Plus Realty, now the largest independent real estate company in Southwest Florida with more than 1,500 agents. Premiere Plus Realty recently won the Best Commercial Real Estate Company and Best Small Company awards in Southwest Florida. In addition, the company was a finalist in the Best Residential Real Estate Agency and Best Family Owned Business categories. Gulfshore Business magazine presented the awards to the real estate company based on the votes of more than 5,000 readers.
At Premiere Plus Realty, agents earn and keep 100% of their commission. What’s more, agents get paid right away at closing. That way agents keep their commissions and they know exactly what their expenses are: $112 per month and $155 per closing.
Know your market.
Market intelligence is the key to pricing or bidding on properties on behalf of your clients.
Whether you specialize in a neighborhood or property type, it’s critical to know what is selling and what isn’t and why. At Premiere Plus Realty, we know the Southwest Florida market because we’re the biggest independent real estate company in the area.
Indeed, the market often moves faster than the listing service every Realtor subscribes to. That’s why it’s an advantage to have the large network of 1,500 Premiere Plus Realty agents so you have immediate intelligence on market activity in real time.
Real estate is a contact sport. The more “boots on the ground” you have, the better your knowledge of the local trends that can help you negotiate on behalf of your clients.
Use technology to your advantage.
Technology can be a good Realtor’s biggest asset.
For starters, Realtors can’t afford to generate leads and manage customers throughout the real estate process with pen and paper. Software to manage the client flow lets you do more with less and makes you more productive. At Premiere Plus Realty, technology and support for client-focused software is a priority. To keep up, the firm invests in your training so that you can be more successful.
Your technology prowess also demonstrates your professionalism to prospective clients. For example, the latest in drone video is one way to impress clients. It’s an arrow in your quiver of internet marketing that will generate results.
