Starting a career as a real estate agent offers an exciting career path. This career allows you to work on your own terms and with a flexible schedule. Furthermore, you will also be helping people find their dream home. However, becoming a professional real estate agent does not happen overnight. In fact, it is estimated that on average 90% of real estate agents fail not because they don’t have the right training but because they are focused on the wrong things. It is easy to allow the excitement of connecting with a client overshadow the most important thing – creating a plan for your business.
