No two days are the same! My days are filled with paperwork, meeting clients, showing properties, marketing my listings and anything else that comes up in the office where I can be of assistance.
What advice can you give aspiring real estate agents?
Make sure the company you affiliate with has a good reputation in the market and promotes training and education. Visibility (marketing) is also important.
