Qualities of a Great Agent
The most common question asked by people considering a career in real estate is, “What are the qualities of a great real estate agent?” (Okay, maybe that’s the second question after “How much money can I make?”)
Let’s look at the typical qualities of top-producing real estate agents:
Willing to learn
The one common denominator that all successful agents share regardless of age, background, or previous experience is attitude. Successful agents have an attitude of success. The right frame of mind allows them to overcome any obstacle in order to meet their objectives with dignity, grace, and professionalism, while having fun and enjoying life at the same time!
As for the money question, the rewards of a real estate career do include a potential for high earnings. Your income directly reflects your efforts but successful agents will tell you that status in the community, autonomy, flexible schedule, helping people, the intellectual challenge, and the satisfaction from those accomplishments are equal to or greater than the financial rewards.
