Every job in the world requires a certain skill set that allows the person holding that position excel. The qualities you find in top-performing practitioners have to do with social skills, focus, and attentiveness. The details may shift as technology continues to progress, but the underlying skills are always the same. The main skills needed for success consist of meeting new people, making personal connections, being straight forward and honest with people, taking care of details, and paying close attention to money.

The majority of successful agents have a daily routine that they stick to in order to get work done. Most begin their day by looking at the previous day's market activity. This is usually on a downloaded or online "hot sheet" report. The report tells them what was sold, new listings, price changes and other activity in their market. Paperwork is a big part of an agents day. It's not just looking at houses and talking to home buyers. If you're doing deals, there are a multitude of action items, deadlines, and deliveries involved. A busy agent spends time each day getting paperwork to the right places, explaining contract items to clients, coordinating inspections, and reviewing documents.

The educational background needed to begin this career is fortunately not that complex and is easy to pursue if dedicated. The path to becoming a real estate agent starts in high school. Most agents typically must be a high school graduate who is at least 18 years old to apply to be a real estate agent in the United States. Throughout high school, basic courses related to real estate that should be taken include introduction to law, basic math and statistics, media and/or marketing, English, psychology, sociology and economics. Speech classes are also encouraged to help make my case for a sale.

In college, there are certain classes that need to be taken in order to begin my career. Many companies are look for agents who have a college education in real estate or a related field because of the increasing complexity of real estate law. Many colleges offer certificates, but others only offer associate or bachelor's degrees. In my undergraduate training, I need to take classes in finance, business administration, statistics, law and English.

The key to real estate is obtaining the real estate license and you can only do that by passing the real estate test. To get a real estate agent license, one usually must complete a minimum number of classroom hours specific to real estate in an accredited program. Requirements vary by state, but most states require at least 30 formal training hours for agents. In some states, agents have to complete additional hours after receiving your license. These courses usually are available from brokerage firms, as well as through real estate associations who are members of the National Association of Realtors. Some examples of coursework are mortgage financing, property development and property management.

Each state has a different test personalized to that state. Passing the test is essential to starting this career because you need a real estate license to begin buying, selling, and advising. Most don't pass it the first time but for immediate work, passing on the first try is ideal. You can take the test as many times needed.
