What to Expect

Prospecting is the single most crucial element in the business and presents the biggest challenge for most real estate agents.

Prospecting can be done in a number of ways:

  • Contacting your sphere of influence
  • Open houses
  • Office inquiries
  • Online techniques
  • Canvassing
  • Handing out business cards
  • And lots more!

The important thing to realize is that it’s not easy, but must be done consistently in order to have a successful real estate career.

Some other activities you could expect to do on a daily basis:

  • Tour new listings
  • Preview homes
  • Staying updated on real estate-related laws and issues
  • Conduct and attend open houses
  • Spend ”floor time” at the office
  • Attend closings with your clients
  • Maintain relationships with your sphere of influence
  • Follow up with clients and customers
  • Prepare contracts for purchase and presenting offers for buyers, and offers from others to your sellers
  • Complete market evaluations
  • Show homes to prospective buyers
  • Prepare and present listing proposals and marketing plans
  • Facilitate communication between all the parties involved in the transaction
