When Every Deal Seems to Be a Nightmare: Encouragement for New Real Estate Agents – Episode 89

When Every Deal Seems to Be a Nightmare: Encouragement for New Real Estate AgentsSeveral new Real Estate agents have talked with me recently about their frustration with the way every deal seems to be a bad one or filled with challenges. On this episode, I talk about this difficult season of a Real Estate career and have some words of encouragement for you. Whether you are a new agent or a more experienced agent who is feeling stuck, this episode is for you.

Every deal is a learning opportunity

For every question you get as a new Real Estate agent, you have to go get the answer. Yes, this is challenging. But it is also a learning opportunity, and I want to challenge you to change the way you think about this season in your business. Listen to this short podcast to get a new perspective that will help you deal with your frustration and push through it.

Feeling like your efforts outweigh your results?

For new Real Estate agents, there is a season when your efforts outweigh your results. It is easy to get frustrated and wonder if you will survive this. But there is hope! On this episode, I explain the stages that we go through in this business and remind you that you will get through this. I hope you’ll listen and be encouraged.

Plant + Time = Harvest

In our modern American culture, we want instant results. But I was reminded this weekend of the principle that, between planting and harvest, there is time that cannot be rushed. In today’s episode, I apply this principle to our Real Estate careers and encourage you to embrace the growth that comes in the time before the harvest. Listen in and be encouraged that the best is yet to come.

How to set realistic expectations for your Real Estate business

When new Real Estate agents are starting out, there is a tendency to start counting your commissions whenever you follow up a new lead. Those unrealistic expectations can result in disappointment and discouragement. In today’s podcast, I’ll talk about realistic expectations, including the percentage of leads that will likely convert into a closing. You can overcome discouragement by appropriately adjusting your expectations!
