What makes a great agent?

Don't you have someone told you at least one of these before:

  • it is not hard to be a real estate agent, and they can do it, too?
  • you can't be a good real estate agent, you won't make it in real estate?
  • you get into real estate at the wrong time?
  • you are not tricky enough to be a real estate agent?
  • you have nothing better to do than selling real estate?
  • since you are making zillion of dollars, they are also going to be a real estate agent?
  • you are just lucky of doing good in real estate? not because of your hard work?
  • how hard can it be, you are just showing a few houses and get paid already?
You are a great agent because despite of all these negative comments you get from others, you stay focus and work your behind off and prove it to all of them who don't think you will make it.  And you made it!!  You sweated under the hot sun, you froze like a popsicle in the cold cold wind while showing homes.  You learn and learn to be a great agent, you use your knowledge and experience to help your client to achieve their real estate goal.  Getting a good pay check at the end of course is great, but you won't give up until you solve the problem for your clients so they can close.

Pamela, it takes a strong focused person to stay in real estate, if we don't know how to lead, we will never get ahead.  Real estate is really not for weak stomach people.

Song, it is.  We have to block all those negative comments out, just keep doing what we are supposed to do and try to excel at least.

Liz, you are right about that !

Rita, Thank you for the post. It takes patience to be a buyer's agent and great marketing skills to be a listing agent. You need great  negotiation skills too.

Gita, No doubt, they are all important to be a great agent.  No patience can not stay in this business, haha.

David, oh yes, follow up is the key in this business.  Thanks!
