Ten Have-To-Haves For A Real Estate Agent bmw exterior # 1 - Good contact management system As a seller, you must be able to keep in touch with customers and customers easily and efficiently. You must be able to retrieve names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses in an instant.You can track and keep your people and prospects in the old fashion way (on 3x5 note cards), but you will quickly grow out. My advice is always to get a CRM program. There are many available specifically designed for salespeople, such as ACT, Goldmine, Shareware and Salespeople.com. These are all made for everyone in the sale.Another option is to buy something that is specific to the real estate industry. The real estate agent-specific programs have many advantages over the general sales programs. They are usually programmed with letter templates and correspondence that an agent can use. They also have prepared management follow-ups and client follow-up plans that have already been incorporated. Most have plans to apply when marketing a property. They also have plans you can start when you have secured a buyer for your listing.I recommend a real estate-specific software such as Top Producer or Online Agent. With Top Producer you can only pay a small monthly fee per user for an internet connection version. This saves all the upgrade costs for the software, and you get free updates. You can also access your database from anywhere in the world as long as you have a high-speed internet connection.A good contact management system is a must for all serious employees.# 2 - Real Estate Counter An agent must be able to help his clients calculate the approximate mortgage loan, net loss after sale and the repayment amount needed based on loan-to-value loan.The most important thing is that an agent must be able to calculate their commission amount. When selecting a counter, select one that has the features you want. Also make sure you can learn how to use it easily. Some have so many different features and keys that are unnecessary that it can take forever to learn how to use it.# 3 - Professional clothing Every property area or region has a level of professional dress. Your first impression of a prospectus can carry a lot of weight. If you dress well, they will assume you will succeed even if you are not. The public will make a judgment of you, fair or unfair, based on how you dress.For men, in most markets except resort or tropical markets, I still believe that a suit is the right dress for a professional real estate agent. It was rare for me not to wear a suit for the job. You feel better and more powerful when you dress well in a suit. When you buy clothes, buy classics that will never go out of style at first. Stay away from the ultra-modern colors and styles. By investing in classics, you can mix and match and expand your wardrobe. Blue shirts, black shirts and white shirts with red and yellow.
