What Makes a Great Real Estate Agent?

Every real estate agent brings their own personality and style to the business. Some are extroverts, some introverts, others are more spontaneous, and some are more reserved. Whatever your strength, anyone can be a great agent if they are committed to putting in the work and are always looking for ways to improve and serve their clients better.

Here are 3 things you can do to be a better agent:

Be proactive. Communication is key and staying proactive from calling potential buyers, to staying in touch with existing clients is important. Don’t keep your clients in the dark, earn their trust by keeping them well informed and answering their questions.rea-wsign-1-300

Stay up on current technology. This goes above having an iPad and smartphone (although both are excellent tools to always staying connected with your clients), but keeping up with the latest trends in the real estate industry.

Know your neighborhoods intimately. Be a “neighborhood expert” by taking time to walk the neighborhood and familiarize yourself with the area so you can answer any question your clients asks. A good agent also uses this information to know what the market is like, what just sold, and what the housing market of that area is worth.
