There is a lot to know to be even moderately proficient at real estate sales, so a good training program offered by the brokerage is paramount to your success. It is surprising to many new agents how much there is to know. Every sale has its own set of circumstances, and people being people add many twists and turns to a real estate transaction. In my experience, the best agents are those who are good listeners, don't jump to conclusions, always get the facts before moving forward or giving advice, and genuinely care about each and every client.
