6 characteristics of a successful estate agent

Becoming an estate agent is an appealing career path for business-minded, entrepreneurial individuals who prefer the flexibility of a job that isn’t strictly nine-to-five. And while there are thousands of real estate agents out there, what sets the phenomenal apart from the ‘okay’?  Adrienne Hersch Properties outlines 6 essential characteristics to achieve success as a real estate agent. 

1.Successful agents build strong relationships

Real estate is a people business. Therefore, the success of your real estate business is entirely dependent on the quality of your relationships. Strong real estate agents have built and nurtured a wide network of clients. These clients will in turn refer family members, friends and colleagues to them by word of mouth.

2.Successful agents are always learning

It is therefore vital to continually strive to learn and grow on both a professional and personal level. Continuously learning on the job, supplemented by training, networking and courses, can help agents to become more accomplished and successful.

3.Successful agents have their finger on the pulse

Successful agents understand that the world of real estate moves fast and they can’t rest on their laurels. They therefore keep up to date with the latest technology, market trends and insights to ensure they can provide sellers with the best possible experience. They also ensure they are constantly informed of key industry changes including legislation, codes of practice, documentation and forms, to ensure they operate at the highest level of their profession. 

4.Successful agents communicate 

Continuous communication is key. One of the biggest frustrations for people is a lack of communication from their agent. It is therefore vital to continually check in with your client to ensure they always remain in the loop.

5.Successful agents don’t sweat the small stuff

Because the real estate industry is so fast-paced and always changing, real estate agents need to be able to take things in stride. Often, transactions don’t go according to plan. Agents need to be able to roll with the punches and not take things personally. 

6.Successful agents know the importance of dedication & sacrifice. 

The key to success is to work harder than anyone else. It will be hard to begin with but if you put your head down and work hard, you will succeed.
