The 3 Fatal Mistakes That Many New REALTORS® Make

1. Choosing a well known brand name brokerage over a team

2. Failing to take advantage of leads provided by a team

3. Failing to understand the advantages of daily coaching and mentoring by a team leader

Let's delve a bit deeper into each one:

1. Choosing a Well-Known Brand Name Brokerage Over a Team:

Issue: While joining a reputable brokerage is important, relying solely on the brand name without considering the support and mentorship within a specific team can be a mistake.

The Four Levels of REALTORS®

Nick McLean a team lead, writer and coach in the USA published an interesting article recently in which he talked about the 4 levels of REALTORS®.
