Here is a little insight…
One question I ask all new recruits to real estate is “If I gave you 1 hour to get 50 people into a room to help you out with a task, could you do it?” Your answer must be “Yes!”.
One thing I look for in new real estate agents is that you are apart of a network of individuals. Your sphere of influence needs to be far reaching because your friends and families will not move every year. And you need to be willing to pick up the phone and be able to talk to the 2nd and 3rd level of connections in your sphere about real estate.
I also look to see if you sphere of influence is completely separate from agents within our office, or if they cross paths a lot. We live in a small town, so there will always be some cross over between our agents. It’s what makes this community so special. And competition is good, but too much close competition between close friends can cause a friction within in the office.
Looking at your sphere and creating your niche will help to set you apart from your co-workers who are competing for this pool of potential clients within the Siouxland community. What makes you different from the other agents? What is it that your clients should expect when working with you that sets you apart from the other experts? What is your niche?
To be a good real estate agent, you must be competitive and humble. You must have a sphere of influence that wants to see you succeed. You must market yourself as the expert in real estate and figure out what sets you apart.
