Tips To Prepare For Your Real Estate License In Louisiana
Ordinary Real Estate pre-licensing education teaches you about the rules and regulations within the field. But, what about the ins and outs of the job itself? Sometimes there are just things you have to learn on the job! Although, who says you can’t be ready to tackle your new profession head-on? Don’t go into real estate blind. Be ready for your profession before getting your real estate license in Louisiana with help from the pros at Bob Brooks School.
Becoming Comfortable With Technology
With the way the modern world is progressing, technology has made its way into nearly every line of work. Real estate is no different. But how can you best prepare yourself?
One way to become tech-savvy is knowing how to work your email inside and out. Write concisely and with proper grammar. Additionally, you may want to look into getting a professional email signature. It appears more polished to clients.
Having a professional LinkedIn profile, Facebook profile, or website increases the opportunity of a potential client coming across your name. These information outlets also build trust in your abilities and allow you to connect.
Additionally, you should be able to make PowerPoint presentations, create documents, and understand electronic signatures. With these skills, your ability to promote houses, close deals, and make money only increases!
Yes, technology is changing the way jobs work. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t change with it.
Know How To Talk To Clients
In the past, we’ve discussed how to talk to a client nonverbally. Let’s have a refresher. Overall, you want to look natural. Give your client your full attention, but don’t be overbearing. Keep your shoulders back, arms at your side, and face them when you’re speaking to them. But also, keep a respectable distance. No one likes it when they feel coerced into buying something.
And, of course, you should always be aware of how you’re talking to clients. For any field, basic communication skills go a long way. When speaking to a client, make sure your communication style is clear and concise—you don’t want them to miss something important! Most importantly, no matter if you’re communicating face-to-face or digitally, ensure your words and tone accurately reflect the point you’re trying to convey. The wrong tone could lead to a missed sale.
Be Open To Education
As humans, we never stop learning. And that is certainly true when it comes to our professions. Because job fields are always changing, there’s always something new to discover. Luckily, there is a plethora of resources out there for you to learn insider tips and tricks. For example, feel free to take a look at our podcast, “Brent Presents.” In each episode our instructor, Brent Lancaster, shares all the information he’s collected over nearly two decades of work. Give it a listen the next time you’re looking to learn something new!
