Even though becoming a realtor may not be very easy, it can be a very rewarding challenge to conquer. This career requires someone who is self-motivated and good with people. Unfortunately, there are a lot of agents who are not aware of the things required to become a realtor.

Steps you need to take if you want to become a realtor:

Get your pre-license

The first step when you want to become a realtor is taking a course for your pre-license. When it comes to finding the right real estate school, you need to first ensure that the school is certified and that your state accepts this school.

Choose a school that has a high percentage of students who have passed their exams. Some states allow you to take this course online while others require that you attend a brick and mortar school. The best thing to do is to check what the state requires you to do.

Get your professional license application to your state

After passing your exams, send your application to your state to get your professional license. This process will differ from state to state. In order to find out the specific process, ask your school or contact the real estate commission.

After completing the required education passed all the exams and gotten your professional license, you will be given information on taking your state exam.

Taking the state test

It is important to prepare well for the state exam because you will have to pay for the test and pay again for it if you fail. The state tests are usually held by independent agencies. Ask the real estate agency or real estate committee to give you a list of independent agencies.

Applying for the first job

Now that you have a license, you can start applying for a job with different agencies. If you are hired by an agency, you will have to join multiple listing services and the board of realtors.

You will have to pay a fee every year to be a member of the board. All states do not require this but some do. Therefore, it is good to attend a seminar on what it means to be a member and a seminar on ethics.

Continuing your education

After receiving your license, the licensing committee will tell you how many hours you will require in continuing education courses. It is good to find a reputable realtor within the agency and shadow them. You also have to ensure that you attend any training the agency offers.

When you become a realtor, never put your interest before the interest of your clients. There are many agents and realtors who are money driven and only looking at the amount they will make from the transaction.

To become successful as a realtor, try to provide 100% satisfaction to all your clients. Building trust with clients takes time and not every client is looking to buy a house tomorrow.

So it’s obvious that success in the real estate industry is not overnight. Putting in the necessary time and commitment, combined with great support and education from a reputable real estate broker will make you a successful realtor.

Find a Local Real Estate Agent to Mentor You

This is the last and most critical step you can make in your journey. Finding a mentor to guide you along the way and tell you about the downfalls ahead is priceless. Someone with experience that has been there before can prove to be invaluable on many different levels. My first mentor was Ryan Dossey, who now runs Christopher Ellyn Homes out of Indianapolis, IN. Dossey does over 100 real estate transactions per year and his knowledge is vast. He specializes in the “We Buy Ugly Houses in Indianapolis Indiana” niche but also does flips, remodels, rentals, and other real estate deals.

Finding a local realtor shouldn’t be too hard. You can easily find someone by searching on Google, Facebook, and my personal favorite is LinkedIN.

Make it your priority to find a real estate mentor!

How to get your Real Estate license and become a Real Estate Agent


As a full time real estate agent since 2008, this is the most common question I get asked – so this is my video addressing anyone interested in getting into the real estate sales industry. It’s been the funnest “job” I’ve ever had and I couldn’t imagine doing anything other than working as a Realtor and investing in my own properties on the side. Feel free to add me on Snap/Insta: GPStephan

Benefits of becoming a Realtor:
-You don’t need a college degree
-You make your own hours
-You don’t have to be in an office all day
-You can wear what you want, for the most part
-You can directly control your income
-You can meet people you’d never ordinarily meet
-You get to see some crazy cool homes
-You can represent yourself when you buy/sell your own properties
-You get great tax advantages and tax deductions

On the downside:
-Many people fail
-Many people never make money
-Your income can be very sporadic (high highs, low lows)
-The hours can be odd/inconsistent
-Not everyone can handle working with people and multiple personalities

You don’t need any prior knowledge in the real estate industry, although you will need to learn a significant amount as you go along.
It also doesn’t take a ton of money to get started – as long as you have some savings to cover yourself until you start earning consistent money, which could be 6-12 months from when you start, the fees are manageable. The cost of actually becoming licensed could be as little as a few hundred dollars.
It’s also a great career to start when you’re young – since you have very little overhead, it’s a great time to begin learning and honing your skills. By the time your older, you’ll already have established yourself in the industry.

First step is getting your real estate license. The requirements vary from state-to-state, so google “How to get your real estate license in (your state here).”
You’ll usually need to enroll in a real estate course which is generally about 135-hours of education. You can take it online (what I recommend) or in person.
If you’re in California, I took my real estate license course from PremierSchools: https://goo.gl/IDVxCf (use code grstp for 5% off). www.AlliedSchools.com is also another great option, as is Kaplan for most other states in the US.

Once you pass these courses, you’ll sign up to take your state test. This is what you’ll need to study for – generally there are plenty of exam cram products you can buy, many of which are helpful.

Passing your tests and getting your license is easy. Really, really easy – the barrier to entry is very, very low. Actually making money is another story. Once you get your license, my BIGGEST recommendation is to work as an assistant to another Realtor. This will give you all the experience you need with very little risk, since you’re getting paid for your time. When you feel comfortable enough, you can go off on your own and begin working your own clients. Even if you have to intern for free to see if you like it, it’s worth it for the experience.

If you decide to go off on your own, you’ll need to join a real estate brokerage as a new agent who will oversee your salesperson activity. My recommendation is to first find a brokerage that works in the area that you want to work in. If you want to work in the high end luxury market, find brokerages that work in the area you want to be in. Make sure that brokerage also offers training and support – this is crucial as a new agent who’s still learning.

A good book I recommend is “the millionaire real estate agent” by Gary Keller. This pretty much covers everything you’d need to know! This can be bought here: http://goo.gl/TPTSVC

WHAT THEY DIDN’T TEACH YOU IN REAL ESTATE SCHOOL – And Why Most Agents Fail


http://GoBorino.com. What they didn’t teach you in real estate school. Tips For New Agents.
Every week your coach Borino answers questions about generating leads, prospecting, getting more good listings, earning more commissions while helping more clients. What it takes to be a successful real estate agent. This week’s question is from Taylor who is about to enter the business:
A new real estate agent (or soon to be) asks:
Trying to get a grasp of the realty business and hoping to be able to truly flourish whenever I start. I’m currently on the end of my enlistment in the Navy and looking to get out and pursue something that I can be truly passionate in, I believe that to be Real estate. I have about 4 months until I get out and I’m currently in the Chicago area. My wife and I are considering making the move to Washington to be closer to family but have strongly considered staying in the Chicago area as to avoid the heavy cost of moving and starting somewhere new. My question mainly resides in what’s the best way to get started? My wife is 3 months pregnant and with a baby on the way I feel that I need to work my ass off as to be able to provide for my family, a 9-5 job just cant do it and it’s, simply speaking, something I’ve never been interested in. I’m ready to put in the work and I have the drive to be able to provide for my family. Any tips, tricks, or just general information would be amazing. Anything helps, thank you!

How to Succeed as a Part-Time Realtor – Kevin Ward


Go to http://YesMasters.com For more killer training videos for REALTORS who want more Yes’s and more Successes in their business and in their life! From Kevin Ward, international real estate trainer, speaker, and coach.

In this video, Kevin explains the 5 Keys to Being Successful as a part-time real estate agent. The first thing to understand is that whether an agent is part-time or full-time, you have the responsibility to be professional and competent.

Succeeding part time is tough…but you can do it. Here are the 5 Keys:
1. Be part-time, not “some-time.” Have a schedule to make that happen and follow it.
2. Have a plan and definite timeframe to go full-time.
(6 months maximum.)
3. Lead generate and follow up every day.
4. Practice and train every day.
5. Get a full-time agent to work with or to help you.
You need a mentor anyway. Work WITH them, not for them.
Don’t lose deals out of greed. Split the money, close more deals. Get more experience. Get more deals.
