Most real estate agents are independent contractors. This means they can set their own work schedules, develop their own client bases, decide on their own marketing methods, and grow their business as their own.
Have Control of Your Business Growth
There are no limits to the growth of your real estate business, and you can realize fantastic rewards if you couple a good attitude with a superior work ethic. You’ll have to incorporate good business skills and develop effective marketing methods as well, but it’s all in your hands. One overlooked facet of the real estate profession is that your status as an independent contractor means you’re in business for yourself. The broker you choose to work with will often supply you with office space, support, training, and prospects, you should always think of it as your own business to grow and move as you see fit.
Reap Future Rewards from Excellent Client Service
Studies have shown that most homebuyers say they would use their real estate agent again or recommend the agent to others. It’s a huge benefit of this business to be able to reap future business rewards from the goodwill of past clients. Pay as much attention to the nuts and bolts of the job and to customer service as you do to marketing. You’ll see great results later.
Take That Vacation
Your time is yours, so take that vacation! Develop relationships with other agents in your office. When you find someone with a similar style and work ethic, you can work with each other to set up time off knowing that your clients will be handled the way that you want. You’re in charge of your business and your time off.
You Can Be as Big as You Like
Your business can be as large as you want it to be. The real estate business offers huge potential for expansion from your one-person-show beginnings.
As an agent, your income is controlled in large part by the time you invest, but you can grow your business by adding an assistant or several assistants. Or get your broker license and build a brokerage, sponsoring agents to leverage your potential.
