You just obtained your license in real estate; congrats! Now what? You may be asking yourself these questions: Should I go solo or join a team? Which brokerage should I partner with? What's my business plan? What's my marketing plan? Robert Garcia, Realtor® for over 17 years and our Director of Operations, has words of advice he would like to share with you. Some brokerages may advise you to start cold calling or door knocking to kickstart your real estate career. But these are old systems that no longer work, Robert says. So what do you do instead? Join a team. The Eric Stewart Group of Long & Foster has created systems that bypass those old-school methods that no longer work. If you are new to the real estate industry and are wondering where to go from here, take a look at these four benefits you'll get when you join the Eric Stewart Group team. Benefit #1: We will help you craft a business plan. This plan will detail out all of the goals and activities you will need to know for your business for the upcoming years. We can create this plan to extend to 5 or 10 years if you so desire. This plan will set you up for success in your career. Benefit #2: We will hold you accountable to your business plan. With over 100 years of combined real estate expertise, the Eric Stewart Group knows what works and what doesn't work. Our team will coach you as you begin your real estate career and will provide support every step of the way to ensure you are following your business plan and hitting your goals. Benefit #3: We have an Internal Sales Associate (ISA) department. Our ISA department nurtures leads so that they are ready for a transaction by the time they get to you. This means that you no longer need to spend time cold calling and seeking out potential leads. Instead, you can spend more time on those who are ready to become your clients. Benefit #4: We have an ESG-dedicated marketing department. Rather than creating your own marketing materials, you'll now have a dedicated marketing team helping you, from social posts that advertise a listing to reaching your own farm area where you would like to establish your name, and much more. If you're ready to join an experienced and dedicated team, Robert invites you to give him a call directly on his cell phone. Call or text him at (240) 286-5526 to find out how you can kickstart your real estate career with us.
