How to Become A Real Estate Agent

Richardson Properties Broker Charles Richardson Shares Insight

 

Becoming a licensed real estate agent is relatively simple, but don’t expect instant success. At Richardson Properties, an independent brokerage and affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate and Luxury Portfolio International in San Luis Obispo, California, the real training takes place when you work with an experienced agent.

 

Taking a real estate course will help you understand local real estate law, but as a professional, you’ll have clients relying on you to help interpret real estate market changes, assess the value of a property and know how to negotiate effectively. But that can’t all be taught in an online course. “You’ve got to get in the business and learn from there,” Richardson says.

 

Charles Richardson, founder and broker at Richardson Properties, says new agents work under a seasoned agent for anywhere from six months to a year, learning the ropes when it comes to meeting client needs, holding open houses, connecting with potential future clients, negotiating and getting a deal to the closing table. During that time, he says, “There’s somebody there watching you and helping you.”
