One of the biggest challenges in the real estate business is accountability. And real estate coaching might help with that. You’ll probably hear and read about mixed reviews and benefits about real estate coaching. Can it really help you, or is it just another magic pill?
Benefits of real estate coaching
The key benefit to real estate coaching is guidance and accountability, which most real estate agents lack. Unless you have a very high level of direction and can implement your own systems, you’re probably wandering around aimlessly trying to build your real estate business. Having guidance and accountability from a real estate coach can help you immensely. Not only does it set you on a specific track, it gives you a sense of purpose when building out your real estate business especially if you’re just starting out, or if you’ve been in the business for years with no success.
Following a system
Every coach has their own system. Some are oriented towards cold calling, door knocking and pure prospecting. Others are about working your sphere of influence and referral business. And others are about building your own platform to provide value to prospective clients. The important thing about choosing a real estate coach is finding a system that suits your values. One that you are willing to follow.
Making a commitment
Following a coach involves making a commitment to follow their real estate coaching and system. You need to know this well in advance. Don’t think that choosing a coach and system will lead to overnight success. There is no such thing. You need to make a commitment to follow the coaching and the system in order to see any benefit from it.
Finding a real estate coach
Ask around. Read reviews. Try out some of their tips and advice. Read their books. Watch their videos. Do your research before committing to a real estate coach. Not all coaching programs are created equally. And coaching programs along with the systems and resources they sell can get costly. So before committing to a coach, do your research first.
