To that end, how we lead — or even if we lead — will remain highly dependent on how we view the word and what makes up our inner person.
Someone who is a leader, a great leader if you will, will stretch you to become better. They will not only tell you what to do to become better, but also they’ll tell you why you need to do it. They help you realize that you learn more from failure than you do from success and that you need both if you’re going to be the best version of yourself you can be.
We all have this person in our lives and in some cases, we are that person for someone else.
While every industry needs leaders, real estate may need them the most. Many people become real estate agents not by choice, but rather, by default. To that end, they are literally starting a new career with little to no real estate knowledge, very few transferable skills, and virtually no understanding of what it takes emotionally, psychologically, or physically to succeed.
Other than uncertainty, nothing else is guaranteed to any person who becomes a real estate agent.
To that end, we all need someone to look to as an example of what to do, how to do it, and when to do it...on good and bad days. Now, whether you are that person or you’re looking for that person, here are the 10 qualities of an amazing leader in real estate.
1. Be a motivator
Great leaders are incredible motivators
and a huge source of inspiration. Yes, they do engage in a certain amount of cheerleading, but being a “rah-rah” person with hollow support for their teams is not what they do. They’ve walked in the shoes of those they lead and help them understand what it takes to succeed at the highest level by sharing their experiences on how they overcame the same challenges and issues.
