I have been a real estate broker for 13 years and over that time I have worked hard to achieve a level of success and knowledge base that I use to help my clients with any problems that arise. However it wasn't always that way. Tyler with easyagentpro.com recently asked a number of successful agents nationwide "What would you tell your younger self just getting started in real estate, and what is your #1 tip for succeeding as a new realtor?" Great question and it made for a great post. If you are thinking about making a career change into real estate or are a seasoned pro there are some great takeaways in here.
After being referred to another real estate agency, we were getting frustrated by the lack of service and decided to attend open houses on our own in the Huntington Beach area. We met David at one of these open houses, and he took the time to get to know us and our needs and wants without the expectation of being our realtor. We contacted him a few days later, and set up several home tours with him for the next day. With less than 24 hours notice, he showed up early and had prepared an informational booklet about the homes we would be seeing. Although the offer on our first choice home was ultimately rejected, David made sure we got the best deal on the home we purchased, and walked us through all of the ins and outs of buying an older home in Huntington Beach. We really appreciated his knowledge of the area and willingness to go above and beyond for us. We have already recommended him to others we know who are relocating to the area. Darcy K
