Learn to restrict your time and with who. Work in a team. Work as a partner or hire a licensed assistant to trade time off. Qualify people before making them clients.
Income and Expenses
Three to six months before you obtain a pay cheque. All income is 100 % commission. You do not always keep all the commission. For example you can be on a 70/30 split until you obtain a G.C.I. of $50,000. Some companies are more expensive than others. However in all companies you must generate your own business, very little is handed to you.
Expenses arrive regardless of your income. You pay for your office, OREB, OREA, CREA, mandatory courses, E and O.E insurance, lawn signs, web site, paper and magazine advertising, flyer distribution, cell phone, lock boxes, letterhead, photocopies, printing, digital camera, administration and technical assistance ie. Feature sheets, Christmas calendars, bus bench advertising, etc. etc.
If you work from a home office and do little promoting, you may have annual expenses of $10,000. Therefore you need to gross about $15,000 to net $10,000.
If you have an office ($600 X 12 mo. = $7,200) and do an organized promotional campaign combined with other expenses noted above, your minimum annual expenses may be $25,000. Therefore you need to earn about $35,000 to net $25,000, just to pay expenses. Some top agents spend $60,000 to $120,000 annually on expenses.
How To Prosper as an Agent
Excel at the quality of job you do in terms of knowledge of subject matter. If you don’t know it, learn it. If you don’t want to learn it, don’t pretend you know it. Refer it to a Realtor who does know. Even knowledgeable Realtors can be financially forced out of the business because they do not..
Lead Generate. You must work one or multiple methods to meet people who are thinking of buying or selling property.
Always be prepared to walk away from a commission cheque if anything hints at being unethical, illegal, or it’s just not right for your client. If you don’t and you “get away with it”, it will catch up with you eventually. It may take years but it will catch up. It may seem hard to leave $10,000 on the table ($400,000 X 2.5% commission) but if you are not prepared to do that, you will have a short miserable career and negatively impact clients and other agent’s lives.
It’s a high risk, high reward business. It needs to be treated like a business. Learn the business of real estate. Take regular courses not mandated by RECO. KWU offers many such courses as does “Mike Ferry”, “Coach Ken”, and others. You can be coached by professionals. This costs $12,000 per year in U.S funds.
Always be a student.... And we have not even discussed real estate software, data bases, etc.
