Ep. 6: How To Change Careers And Transition Into Real Estate

Hello, thanks for coming to our video blog
this week. My name is Robert Rico, California Realty
Training. So you’re thinking about a career change? Maybe real estate is the right thing for you. Let’s talk about four things that might make
it easier to make that decision. Number one, you need to be honest with yourself. Take a good look in the mirror. Is this a business that you would actually
enjoy? This is a people business which means you
have to like people. The core of this business is people, not do
you just have to like people but more importantly the people must like you. You must be a likable person. Number two, do your research. Talk to other realtors in the business. Do you have friends or family that is also
involved in real estate? Talk to them. How has it treated them? Has it been challenging? Has it been simple? Has it been rewarding? This might make it easier for you when it
comes time to making a decision. Number three, develop a game plan. When can you get started in this career? When is the right time for you to get involved
for example in a educational program? To take the courses needed to get your license. When is it the right time for you to focus
on extracurricular education? You can also visit some open houses during
your time off and see how it works. See people in action. That’s very, very helpful. Number four, get started. Now that you have your real estate license,
all you have to do is choose a brokerage. Go out and visit a few. We recommend you visit a few, make sure the
ambience feels right. Make sure there’s a mix of veteran agents
there and of course you want a batch of new agents in there. You want to feel comfortable. You want to make sure they have the right
technology, the right team, the right support. You want to feel great in that brokerage. Let’s take a look at what Mr. Gary Keller
says from his book, The One Thing when it comes to thinking big. He says, “Don’t fear big. Fear mediocrity. Fear waste. Fear the lack of living to your fullest. When we fear big we either consciously or
subconsciously work against it. We either run toward lesser outcomes and opportunities
or we simply run away from the big ones. If courage isn’t the absence of fear but moving
past it, then thinking big isn’t the absence of doubt, of moving past them. Only living big will let you experience your
true life and work potential.” Which means if you’re ready to give the effort
and you’re ready to go for it, now might be the time for you to do it, do not fear making
it happen. Thanks for visiting our video blog. We hope to see you next week.
