TRANSCRIPT:

Randal:

Welcome back to Focus Real Estate's weekly video blog, Stay Focused. I'm Randal Engelmann.

Erik:

And I'm Erik Gould.

Randal:

And this week's topic is How To Become A Successful Real Estate Agent.

Erik:

So this video we want to address all of you who've been following us. Our audience and clients and customers out there. Because we realize that some of the best real estate agents right now in the industry, did not come from the real estate business. They actually have a lot of different backgrounds.

Randal:

Yeah, this isn't necessarily what people go to school for. So many people segue from other industries into real estate.

Erik:

Exactly.

Randal:

What kind of qualities make an excellent real estate agent, Erik?

Erik:

Well, I'm glad you asked that, Randal. Some of the qualities that make good real estate agents are: They're self-starters. They're service oriented. They're dedicated. They're outgoing. And they love people. 

Randal:

And the passionate about what they're doing.

Erik:

Passionate. Love properties. And love watching the market.

Randal:

Because who doesn't get into real estate just for the pure voyeuristic quality of it. Because it's so fun being in these different people's homes. And it's really fun to help people. I mean, we really feel like we're helping people through a very important transition in their lives and it's really gratifying. 

Erik:

Yeah, it can be a really gratifying and satisfying business. And if you really apply yourself, it can be quite lucrative. We're putting together a great team. We have some great agents right now on our team and we're looking for some other qualified individuals who might be a good fit and really passionate about the business. And we're fortunate enough. We can be selective who joins our team to keep that nice cohesive team. 

Randal:

Great culture.

Erik:

Great culture and have fun helping people. 

Randal:

Indeed, indeed.

Erik:

Randal:

And what kind of opportunities are out there. It's not everybody, really. But it can be a lot of fun.

Exactly. And the opportunities are out there. We'd love to hear from you.
