Thinking about becoming a real estate agent?
Live in Arizona?
Here are a few tips to help you become an agent and get started quickly.
Let’s first look at the stuff most people don’t talk about.
#1. Make sure real estate is right for you.
You must be a “people person” and enjoy talking, a lot.
#2 When you are first starting out find a mentor. Or join a team.
You will start out as a dishwasher, bottom of the ladder, but with hard work and determination, you can rise quickly.
#3 Know that being an agent is a tough job, especially when you are first starting out.
Many people have the misconception that being an agent is easy. It is not.
On the average, 80% of agents will quit 1 year after becoming an agent.
Of the 20% who are left, 80% of them will quit after 5 years.
Why? Because being an agent is tough.
As an example, you might spend 2 or 3 months working on a deal only to have it fall apart at the end and not close, back to square #1.
Therefore, you must always have multiple deals in the pipeline to offset the deals that don’t close.
Ok, having all of that in mind, here are the steps to follow to become a real estate agent in Arizona.
You must be 18 years of age or older and have legal US residency.
You complete 90 hours of real estate school from one of the many RE schools in the Phoenix area and other large cities. Each school will have a final exam you must pass before taking the official state exams.
You must pass two state RE exams, one on general real estate knowledge and one on Arizona state law as it applies to real estate.
Once you complete all of this and pay your licensing fees, and submit your fingerprints, you are good to go.
My best advice to you is make sure you find a good mentor to help you along and teach you the ropes.
Stay focused, talk to as many people as you can without be pushy.
