With my new real estate book, Getting the Property SOUL’D, I wanted to make a somewhat complex business system more understandable while giving people credible expectations–whether you are a real estate agent, real estate seller or real estate buyer.
The National Association of Realtors statistics show that 85-90% real estate licensees fail. In my thirty plus years in real estate, I have seen hundreds of new bright energetic real estate agents leave the business after a year or two never having “made it”. Then there are the countless others who make it initially, but cannot sustain over the long haul. So what is it about this sales profession that makes it so lucrative for some and disastrous for most?
