What To Look For In A Real Estate Mentor or Real Estate Coach
Finding an experienced mentor or coach who is proven to lead real estate agents to success takes the guesswork out of learning. Right from day one, they can walk you through the ins and outs of the real estate industry to coach you through any and every situation, no matter how off the wall it might be. How? Because they’ve been in your shoes and they have already gone through the growing pains so they can help you avoid them.
Here are some things to look for when considering a real estate mentor or real estate coach to partner with:
- They’re smart – You don’t get far in real estate without a few brain cells, so finding a mentor who has been in the business, found incredible success, is creative and collaborative and can TEACH what they’ve learned is key.
- They’re compassionate – If you are struggling, frustrated, angry, and feeling down, you want a mentor who shows compassion because they CARE that you are struggling and frustrated. A great real estate mentor is someone who genuinely wants to help you succeed.
- They foster a sense of community – There are millions of real estate agents out there, and with the need to offer referrals and negotiate, having a strong real estate community results in a better homeowner experience all around. After all, it’s not about us; it’s about them, right?
- They are all about skill-building – The whole reason real estate agents are searching for a mentor is to build their skills and give them strategies and tips they wouldn’t have found otherwise. Getting inspired, motivated, and growing on a personal level at the same time is the icing on the cake!
- They keep their mentoring affordable – Life is expensive enough, and you want a mentor that is there to share their wisdom in a way that fits your budget, whatever that might be.
When considering a coaching or mentorship relationship, ask yourself the following questions:
- What does each program offer specifically?
- Will it help you grow your business?
- Does the company’s ideology match your ideology?
- Most importantly, do you feel the coaching program is worth what you are paying for it?
