11. Problem solver mindset

Great agents enjoy coming up with creative solutions to problems.  Many successful real estate agents know how to properly showcase a property to make it more marketable and develop creative marketing to attract the right buyers. Our agents employ valuation skills that allow them to decide whether or not they should take the listing or refer it to someone else. They have created a system that helps to minimize risk and maximize returns. Our agents must be teachable and adept at Microsoft office and the google business platform. 

10. Self-motivated entrepreneur

Having a desire to control your own professional destiny and be your own boss is a trait shared by top real estate professionals. To be successful in real estate requires a high degree of self-motivation, drive, and smart decision-making. SRES gives you the tools needed to be successful and stand out from the crowd. 

9. Honesty and integrity (Fiduciary)

Your professional reputation is crucial to a long and successful career in real estate. There are many ways of showing that you are the type of professional that places the interest of the client above your own. Be comfortable in your own skin and act as though the world is watching you. 

8. Hustle and tenacity

Being a top-producing real estate professional requires a great work ethic. You must have the tenacity to vett every lead and the hustle to aggressively market your clients’ properties in order to have success. It’s not just about putting in a lot of time—it’s about working smart, putting in the right amount of time, and leveraging successes and failures to give your client an edge.  CRM-Follow Up Boss

7. Interest in houses, architecture, zoning regulations, and everything real estate.

Having a true interest in houses and architecture can give you an advantage over other brokers and salespersons. If your knowledge and interest level are apparent in conversations, your clients will see that you care about the industry you’re in. Use our Group Accolades to set you apart. 

6. Engaging personality

A good real estate professional doesn’t just help clients to make good decisions in regard to buying and selling properties—they market themselves and their company to validate and solidify their worth in the eyes of the consumer.   It’s important to show your real personality. People will respond to you if you have a great attitude, are personable and honest, have confidence in your abilities, and are interested in helping them and others. 

5. Attention to detail and being present

Paying close attention to the details is imperative for your real estate career. A complete real estate agent is attentive to the unique needs of their individual clients. If you are organized, follow up with leads, communicate well, and pay attention to the needs of your clients, you will be successful. Being PRESENT is critical in a world full of distractions and disorganization. You must be ready to engage at a moment's notice with little or no advance notice. Time blocking

4. Understand the local housing market 

A top-producing real estate professional appreciates and utilizes the nuances that make a specific community’s housing market and pricing strategy unique. Success comes from identifying and developing a focus or niche in the local real estate market that allows you to distinguish yourself from the competition. Market Pulse, CoStar, Toolkitcma, BuildingCosts.net & Research all help to prove that you are a true professional. 

3. Build a network of connections

Successful real estate professionals have a vast network of contacts within the market they serve. This list of connections should include other real estate agents and brokers, potential buyers and sellers, and all the other players in the real estate industry, such as appraisers, home inspectors, and mortgage loan officers.

2. Knowledge is power

You must make a commitment to education. Staying up-to-date on the latest topics in real estate and in the local market will allow you to service clients more effectively. Continuing education and professional development are doors to opportunities that you can utilize to expand your business options and stay at the forefront of the real estate field.

At the end of the day, you get out of it what you put into it. There is a certain level of investment needed (time, energy, and money) to make any business venture successful. Real estate is no different. If you are passionate about real estate and have similar traits to those outlined here, you have a great shot at having a long and successful real estate career. 

1. Consistently Taking Action

Taking Action is hands down the most important trait one can possess. The simple truth is that dreams, visions, and goals can only be achieved through actions. Taking the first step is usually the hardest part of the journey. Start where you are and increase your output and skillset as you grow.  Action increases your confidence and leads to more action. Taking action gives birth to momentum which simply means that you are getting more done.
