You know what that means: A new crop of real estate agents is trickling onto the scene. Cities like Detroit and Jacksonville are already seeing an influx of new real estate agents as the market rebounds and income rises.

Let's give those folks some pointers, shall we?

Tip #1: Be Kind

Agent Kris Wales: "People first. Always."
Real estate is a service industry. Agents are constantly in service to their buyers, sellers and fellow agents. That means agents must possess the following:

Good listening skills
Ability to work well with others
Solid work ethic
The takeaway? Inconsiderate, antisocial mavericks need not apply. If you're not prepared to put the needs of others first on frequent occasion (which could mean answering the phone at 2 a.m., helping your clients move or counseling sellers through a tough time), real estate may not be the field for you.

New real estate agents need a few pointers before embarking on their careers.
Tip #2: Thrive on Self-Motivation

Agent C.J. Johnson: "Write and follow a business plan. Run your desk like a business. You and only you control your success."

Teamwork is an important part of life as a real estate agent. Agents are in constant contact with clients, other agents, lenders, title agents and a litany of other professionals.

And while it's essential to work well on a team, agents must prepare for one harsh reality: The "team" isn't going to pay your bills.

Agents typically work as independent contractors and are paid by commission. To succeed in this field, agents must be self-motivated.

You can't expect business to fall in your lap simply because you have a license. Will you make cold calls without being prompted? Are you willing to learn a new skill without it being a requirement? Are you constantly prospecting / networking / researching?
