Illinois REALTORS® are champions of homeownership, property rights and our communities, working hard to make the American Dream of buying or selling a home or business possible for everyone.

It’s easy to fall into bad habits and not do the day-to-day activities that will increase your business. Connect with top-producing brokers who will hold you accountable. Make short-term goals (to reach a much larger goal) and constantly review your progress.

We can’t control whether someone will write an offer on a property or not. However, we can control the activities that lead to those results. I choose to focus on the activity daily. When you focus on the activities that lead to the results, the results will ALWAYS show up.

Treat real estate like a J.O.B. Too often new agents float through the day without completing the necessary proactive lead generating activities that are required to succeed in this business. Set up a daily time-blocked schedule (it can be flexible) and go to work. If you are fortunate enough to have a mentor, definitely lean into their advice and perform the tasks that are suggested.

Experience matters in this business and unfortunately it is a learn-on-the-job industry. The greatest thing I have found is the leaders in the industry are often willing and wanting to help you succeed and raise the bar for all. Find a trusted advisor.

It’s easy to doubt yourself as a new agent. Don’t. This is another reason why it is so important to have a great support system as a REALTOR®. Whether it is your managing broker or a team leader, you will need someone experienced who can guide you. Don’t be afraid to lean into people who have your best interest at heart.
