Advice For New Real Estate Agents

Advice For New Real Estate Agents

A lot of new agents ask themselves and their mentors how to get clients. New agents often see a large client base as a source of money, and why wouldn’t you? It only seems logical.

But consider thinking about it like this: don’t worry so much about getting clients—focus on keeping clients.

Sure, it takes skill to go out and prospect for new clients, but that’s not going to set you apart from other agents—most real estate agents are comfortable talking to people and making connections.

Establishing relationships with people is going to set you apart. 

So often, people want an easy solution to their problems: “What’s the magic bullet that won’t require a lot of work?”

Sorry, my friend, but the real estate industry is not going to work like that.

Advice for Real Estate Agents

Instead, your success will depend on your drive, work ethic, and attention to detail. Do you think SEO will be the trick? What about Social Media prowess? Maybe you want to hit the pavement or cold call people. More power to you. But these are just tools and techniques.

The same way a football offense must choose a run play, pass play, kick, or punt, you must choose between your own tools, each one chosen based on specific circumstances. If all you can do is pass the ball, you may not last. Likewise, if all you do is wait for potential clients to contact you, you won’t make it in this industry.

Don’t hide from the SuperStar agents in your area, call them up and take them out to coffee (your treat). Ask them about the area, let them share their wisdom and listen closely. If you have a good rapport, meet up again and you might have a mentor.

Find your niche. You might think this business is all about transactions, but really it’s all about relationships. And the beautiful thing is that the better relationships you have the more homes you’ll sell.

So work hard. Leave the office. Have some fun. Get out there and sell some homes. And, in the process, make some freinds.

5 Tips: How to Pass the Florida Real Estate Exam

5 Tips: How to Pass the Florida Real Estate Exam

1. Take your time

You have three and a half hours to answer the questions, which means there is no need to rush.

Just take a deep breath and trust your preparation.

2. Read all the darn questions…2 times

It’s too easy to skip over key words in the question. Our brain has this nasty habit of filling in the blanks of sentences when we haven’t even seen every word.

Give yourself a chance of getting the questions right by reading them each 2 times.

3. Read all the darn answers…2 times

Before choosing an answer, even if you are 100% positive it’s right, read through all the choices.

It may be that you have prematurely selected a response that is correct, but there could be another answer that is more correct.

If you fail to read through all the answers there’s a chance you may mark the wrong one.

4. Longer is better

If you come to a question that has you completely stumped, usually the longest choice is the most likely to be correct.

This is not a hard rule of thumb, but rather an indicator to go off of when you don’t have any idea what the answer could be.

5. Treat each multiple choice question as 4 true-false questions

Each multiple choice question will have 4 answers, each of which you should regard as a true-false question.

This will help you ensure that you aren’t missing any details when responding to each question.

In order to learn the information necessary to pass the state exam, you need access to hundreds of sample questions, immediate feedback, and explanations covering the content you’ll see on test day.

That’s exactly what you’ll get with LarsonEd’s Real Estate Exam Tutor, available here for $69.

We also offer a Broker Exam Tutor, which you can purchase here for $89.

LarsonEd Named Best Family-Owned Business

Earlier this week, Gulfshore Business Magazine awarded their fourth annual Best of Business awards at the brand new Southwest Florida Performing Arts Center. Awards ranged from Best Architect to Best Private Country Club. In the Best Family-Owned Business category, who else but Larson Educational Services came out on top.

Votes were tallied during the months of April and May and, according to LarsonEd founder Brad Larson, the school came out on top “becuase of the support of our current and past students.”

Owners Brad and Dave with the award.


But Larson wants people to know that although this was a Family-Owned Business award, that doesn’t mean this was a Larson-only achievement. “This award goes out to everyone in the company,” says Brad, “not just those with the last name Larson.”

Brad also wants Larson customers and employees to know that he feels like they are all part of the Larson family. “To our intructors, customer experience team, and vendors, I want to say congratulations, because you are LarsonEd,” the owner says.

The LarsonEd team thinks people are drawn to their business not ony for their unique instruction and course materials, but also because they have such intimate knowledge of their products and care for the customer experience.  “We feel the same emotions as our students in regards to their success in achieving their goals,” says Larson. “We feel the jubilation and triumph when someone passes a test, and we also feel the disappointment when things do not go according to plan.”

But, like a family, LarsonEd is willing and able to provide the support necessary to get students to the next step. “And we’ll do it with a smile on our face because we know that we can make a difference in someone’s life.”
