My first blog post

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Bradley (260)704-0843

Hi everyone, I have enjoyed reading blogs from all of you and have decided to start up one of my own.  I recently completed my salesperson's class, passed my state test last week and am signed up with RE/Max and ready to go! 

I have been educating myself for months by reading all the different real estate websites and blogs, plus going with my wife (also a realtor) on appointments and watching her in action.  I feel like I have learned a lot and am thankful for all the knowledge all of you experienced professionals have shared. 

Question to all of the experienced realtors out there:  If you could give a new realtor just ONE piece of advice, what would it be?  I would love to hear what you have to think!

Hi Jared, Welcome to real estate and to Active Rain!  Listen to your wife! -LOL  Start blogging and set up a couple of outside blogs, and stick with it.  Learn, learn, learn as much as you can.  Go to your local board of realtors and take every class they offer you and network. Best wishes!

Jared and Amanda- I told you I'd come back here to look.  That was an excellent first post and I think you could re-introduce this one with a different take (What I wish I'd known.)
