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.

4 Leadership Styles to Fit Any Situation

You may think that leadership is fixed and finite–a boss tells people below them what to do, and those people do it. However, as your personal skills change so too will your leadership needs. Likewise, as your team grows and improves, your leadership skills will become more valuable.

A one-size-fits-all approach to leadership may be hurting your real estate business. Here are 4 leadership styles you need to know as a real estate professional and when to use them.

leadership styles florida real estate school

Directive

Use this leadership style when people are highly committed but not necessarily competent with the given task.

When the task is difficult, and the people performing it are inexperienced or have low commitment, then it’s necessary to give instructions as to how the job should be done. This style of leadership puts a strong emphasis on the task, as well as a low emphasis on the people performing it.

Coaching

When people have some competence relative to the task, but are low on commitment.

When the task is difficult, but the people have some skill they need direction and supervision because of their relative inexperience. They also need support and recognition to build their confidence and involvement in decision-making to restore their commitment (which may have declined because of frustration on the team).

Supporting

Use this leadership style when people are highly committed but have varied competence.

When you have a situation that requires a supporting leadership style the individual’s skill-set has improved, but they still require support to sustain motivation to bolster their confidence. As a leader, you can start to take a backseat, giving acknowledgement and praise when necessary.

Delegating

Use this leadership style when people are both competent and committed.

People who are competent and committed will be able and willing to work on a given project by themselves with little supervision or support. Occasional monitoring allows you, as a leader, to stay informed and ensure that team members have the necessary resources. But, for the most part, this team will be better when left alone.

The better you understand your team, the more likely you’ll be able to use the most effective form of leadership. Utilize these 4 types of leadership to better lead your team in the future.

Listing Presentation Tips For Real Estate Agents Part 1

Listing Presentation Tips Part 1

Presentation Tips for Real Estate Professionals

You’ve got a listing presentation scheduled with a potential client. Fantastic. Now think of your upcoming presentation as a job interview: you are trying to convince your potential client that you can sell their home faster, for more money, and with more care than any other agent. Therefore, your first impression should let your potential clients know that you are trustworthy, knowledgable, and prepared. Because if you don’t they may be inclined to go with another agent.

Think you can go into this or any other presentation and wing it? Failing to plan is another way of planning to fail. The true difference between rookie agents and the superstars is a preparedness. Your listing presentation is won or lost, in large part, before you even meet with the potential client. Follow these tips to better serve your potential clients’ needs.

1. Research

Yes, of course you should look up tax records for details on the property and look at similar listings in the area. But don’t overlook the value of looking up your potential clients on social media sites like Facebook and LinkedIn. Get a sense of where they’ve been and where they’re going in their careers and lives by looking at job and personal information publicly available on their social media profiles.

If you think looking up your potential clients online is creepy, then consider this: What do you think people do every time they consider using your services? That’s right, they type your name into Google. This is interpersonal research in the 21st century.

2. Prepare materials

Your potential clients will want to hold hard copies of documents in their hands at a listing presentation—having tangible evidence of your work adds to your credibility as well as the credibility of the information you are presenting.

Prepare a CMA and have a full-color market analysis on hand, along with some of your personal marketing materials. Also, consider bringing along some of your photographer’s work as a sample, but remember: only do this if you get nice glossy photo paper. It’s better to present an electronic version of an image than a poorly printed hard copy.

3. Competition is your friend

What would you think of a doctor who discouraged you from getting a second opinion? They might come off as insecure and, perhaps worse, it’ll mean they’re more concerned with their own image rather than your well-being. This is how you make a potential client feel when you discourage them from interviewing multiple agents. Encourage your potential clients to talk to your competition—this displays confidence in every way.

And, if you have prepared like you should, you will stand out from your competition anyway.

Most importantly, do not speak ill of your competition or put undue pressure on your potential clients. Inform them, be honest, and speak with confidence and you will already be ahead of the game.

Follow these tips to better improve your listing presentations. To sign up for classes, including real estate post-licensing, visit our website, www.LarsonEd.com, or give us a call at 239-344-7510.
