Best way to transition as a real estate agent from another job.

Best way to transition as a real estate agent from another job.

If you are thinking of transitioning to real estate from a corporate job or any other full-time job, this video is for you. Transitioning to real estate from another full-time job is not easy. You know, wherever you put your focus, you put your energy, and you get successful. Now, if you have a full-time job there and you are kind of thinking if I get a sale here and there, I save some money, I get into real estate, that's not going to happen. I saw many failures. Even I hired personally many agents and gave them a chance to do the transition and it never happened. On the flip side, I have agents who did the transition, did plan, and had a written plan, a very structured plan in mind and they implemented it and they are super successful.

And today I'm going to talk about what is the difference? When you transition into real estate, you have to know the most important aspect of this business. What are the things you need to pay attention to the most? For example, lead generation activities, follow-up activities,  and different kinds of things. So my suggestion will be if you have a full-time job,  either do that job early in the morning, say start at 06:00 in the morning and you're done by midday. Or you do that early afternoon and an afternoon shift. So that's the way, either you have a full morning available or a full afternoon available for real estate. So the number one thing you need is a committed time. It could be 4 hours a day, 6 hours a day, it really doesn't matter how long, but you have to be committed. Not like one day you're available, 6 hours, the other day you're not available because your client is going to look for you. And if they don't find you, you're going to lose the business. So commitment, same hours every single day is very important because your client, your team members, your broker, your team leader, you name it, whoever you're working with needs to know that you are available for them. So they call if you are available. Okay? If you're not, you're going to lose  the business. I can guarantee you are never going to make it. So that's one thing, okay?

Then you have to have a plan for when you're going to leave the other job. So for example, I had one team member who came from a corporate job and is doing great at that corporate job. And when she did those first three months, she had a plan, you know what I'm going to do, this is the holiday season, my other business is busy at that time. And I'm going to take this time, I'm going to work over there, I'm going to only put time this time. And it was a very scheduled time. And then after that, from January, I'm fully in real estate. She did it. Now she makes a fortune or she makes a very, very good comfortable income from real estate. Actually way more than what she was making before and also getting time for herself and her family. So these are the success stories I have. I have a couple of other team members also, they did the same thing and they're doing very well. So you have to have a plan, have to have a consistency about time and also with that time what particular activity you're going to do, because you can do many things in real estate.

If you're a part-time agent right now doing the transition and you look at full-time agents, what they do and then copy that, again, that will not be the right way to do it. because you have to do things with your time availability. So if you join my team, I'll sit down with you, tell you a clear plan, a clear path, what can you do in the right direction to your success with that time you have available. And then there will be a transition period. Okay, months from now, this is the thing I'm going to do. Six months from now, you'll be able to leave that job because you're going to have enough files in the pipeline. Are you going to already have started closing the file, making money. The bottom line, you have to have the right plan when you're transitioning to real estate. 

There is more to it. You got to do the business plan, you got to do a calendar set up and a lot of other things that we can talk about in person. But I just wanted to let you know that don't just get into real estate because you love real estate and you want to leave the other job because you don't like it. You have to have a plan in place for this transition. Hopefully, this is going to help you to transit right to real estate. If you have any questions, give me a call.
