Thanks everyone for your advice, it will sure come in handy for anyone looking to get started with realty


Not renewing our insurance 😬

Putting too much on my plate. It's nice to have a lot of clients, but when you can't give each of them the attention they deserve, you risk losing some of them.

Not having everything relevant written down on paper. Agreements, contracts, offers, general communications. Have everything documented and you'll never get caught lacking

Some rookie mistakes that I made when starting out as a realtor were not doing my research on the neighborhoods that I was targeting, not having a solid game plan going into each day, and not staying organized. These mistakes resulted in me not landing any listings or sales in my first few months as a realtor. Thankfully, I was able to learn from my mistakes and eventually became more successful.

Hello Everyone,

I'm currently a civil design engineer, and trying to switch to real estate as a Program Manager. I have an interview in a week where they tell me I will have to work on ( for about 3-4 hours ) on an operational case study.

The job is located in Paris and the job is in French .

Does anyone here have any case studies in Real estate that they can share ? and if they're from France, that would be even better.

Thank you in advance !
