Launch Your Real Estate Career – FREE REALTOR® Introduction Letter

If you are a new REALTOR® or just getting started in your Real Estate Career, you have limited time to get your name out there to start generating leads.  Because Real Estate Commissions are not paid until properties close, that means you are doing business now that will actually pay you months down the road.

If you are brand new in your real estate career, this could mean an early exit from the industry if you can’t get any deals done right away.  Not having leads early on, can put a lot of pressure on you and quickly change your overall outlook on this wonderful sales industry.

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BECOME A REALTOR®?

Every child growing up has a dream of what they would like to be…a Doctor, Dentist, Nurse, Singer and on it goes. Have you ever asked a young child what their career goal is and have them answer “I really want to be a REALTOR®”. Maybe, if they have family in the business, but I hazard a guess that if they have a REALTOR® in the family, that becomes a turn off.
