Just had an awesome morning prospecting for listings and found a seller from my old old old old expireds that is now finally going to be listing their house next month and they selected me. Tenacity is all about staying in touch with your leads, even for FOUR years, like I did with this seller.
Wouldn’t usually work a lead for 4 years, but they are super sweet to me and always told me that I will be their listing agent if and when they sell.
There are many traits that make an Unleashed listing agent. And I found this article online here that I think nicely sums it up.
“A good real estate agent is similar in nature to a conductor of a symphony, coordinating the different players to make a successful transaction a reality. At different points in the process, the real estate agent is a salesperson, a buyer’s advocate, an analyst, a business manager, a consultant, a negotiator, and a marketer, just to name a few. We have found there are a number of qualities and traits that successful real estate professionals share.
10. Problem solver mindset.
9. Self-motivated entrepreneur.
8. Honesty and integrity.
7. Hustle and tenacity.
6. Interest in houses and architecture.
5. Engaging personality.
4. Attention to detail.
3. Understand the local housing market.
2. Build a network of connections.
1. Knowledge is power.
At the end of the day, you get out of it what you put into it. There is a certain level of investment needed (time, energy, and money) to make any business venture successful. Real estate is no different. If you are passionate about real estate and have similar traits to those outlined here, you have a great shot at having a long and successful real estate career.”
So tell me, what is your strongest trait(s).
We ALL have to be working on being our best self and the best listing agent for our sellers.
