Tips for Starting a Real Estate Career

Tips for Starting a Real Estate Career

My background and story of how I became a REALTOR and tips for folks wanting to get into the business.


“Real Estate is a people business.  If you don’t like people, or they don’t like you…  Sit this one out.”

I’m constantly asked what it takes to get started in this career.  It boils down to a few quick points.


“If you have a job, don’t quit your job.  Hustle and get some clients, get some sales under your belt, then phase out your full time job.  You’re welcome.”

  1. Have some money.
  2. Have some business acumen.
  3. Have some common sense.
  4. Have some people skills.
  5. Understand that this is a business – not a job or a career.
  6. Learn how to generate leads.
