Do You Know What It Takes To Be a Successful Real Estate Agent?

The Reality of Real Estate Shows You


You’ve watched the reality television shows or recently purchased a home and thought, “I could do that!”  Or you’re looking for a new career that gives you more flexibility with your time and allows you to earn more money.  You love real estate and you love people and think, “I could be a real estate agent!”

The real estate industry is filled with people who had those very same thoughts.  Unfortunately, according to the National Association of Realtors, over 75% of new agents leave the business within the first five years.  Why?  Because being a real estate agent takes work and plenty of it.  The good agents just make it look easy.

The “Reality of Real Estate” was written as an easy-to-read, practical guide to real estate success.

“I have read a lot of books about real estate in my life, but I can honestly tell you that “The Reality of Real Estate” is one of the best.  This book tackles everything an agent will come in contact with in their career.  From working in the business to working on the business to dispelling myths about reality TV and so much more.  If you’re a real estate agent or you are looking to get into the business, I highly recommend that you read this book, internalize this book and then put it into action.

I had such a pleasure reading it that I went back and read it a second time and took notes for myself.  Candy, thank you for writing this book.  It is a must-read for every agent in the industry.”
