Hello everyone! Hope all is well just wanted to 
come to you today and share some information  

00:00:07,680 –> 00:00:13,440
I’ve had a lot of friends and colleagues reach 
out to me and ask me about this business this  

00:00:13,440 –> 00:00:22,080
crazy, crazy business of real estate that we’re in 
and I just wanted to share some insight of what  

00:00:22,080 –> 00:00:28,160
I’ve been through and also just some tips they’ve 
asked about you know how to how can i become a  

00:00:28,160 –> 00:00:34,480
realtor how do i get into this business listen 
it’s not easy okay i’m just going to be honest  

00:00:36,320 –> 00:00:41,520
it’s probably one of the hardest things that that 
I’ve been through transitioning from oil and gas  

00:00:42,720 –> 00:00:50,560
into real estate and honestly,
if I didn’t have my wife Monica beside me  

00:00:51,120 –> 00:01:00,080
to help me I wouldn’t have made it and so I 
thank her for and you really need somebody  

00:01:00,080 –> 00:01:06,880
to help you get through that first phase 
of this business and so it’s really important  

00:01:06,880 –> 00:01:13,200
to have a mentor but also there’s a few other 
things the first is what I call the three P’s  

00:01:13,920 –> 00:01:20,800
you have to be persistent with what you do okay 
there’s so many different ways you can attack  

00:01:20,800 –> 00:01:26,320
this business but whatever you do you just 
have to be persistent you can’t give up  

00:01:27,280 –> 00:01:35,200
and and that’s what’s key as far 
as the first p the second p is positivity  

00:01:35,200 –> 00:01:41,760
you have to you have to just stay positive 
in this business you get rejected so much  

00:01:42,560 –> 00:01:47,600
all of my friends in sales they understand 
that but if you’ve never been in sales and  

00:01:47,600 –> 00:01:53,600
you try to get into real estate it can 
be very difficult so you’re gonna get rejected  

00:01:53,600 –> 00:01:58,160
you have to stay positive okay and then 
the third thing is you have to be patient  

00:01:58,960 –> 00:02:08,400
this is not a get rich quick scheme there’s 
so many shows on tv there’s so many infomercials  

00:02:08,400 –> 00:02:14,000
I’ve gotten so many calls about you know 
people that have taken these classes and  

00:02:14,640 –> 00:02:23,120
you know just get rich quick schemes 
and it’s just it couldn’t be farther  

00:02:23,120 –> 00:02:29,920
from the truth so it’s a long-term 
wealth that you that you have to invest into  

00:02:31,040 –> 00:02:36,880
then the other side of it the last part of it 
is an equation that that I actually heard from  

00:02:36,880 –> 00:02:43,760
someone else but I love equations uh so looking 
at my notes here the equation is visibility  

00:02:45,280 –> 00:02:54,240
plus credibility equals profitability so what 
does that mean visibility if you’re going to go  

00:02:54,240 –> 00:03:01,200
get your license take the classes which is so easy 
to do and and get the certificate or whatever  

00:03:02,320 –> 00:03:08,960
pass the test that’s easy to do but if you’re 
gonna just stay cooped up in your house in your  

00:03:08,960 –> 00:03:17,040
office behind your desk and not get out and 
become visible then it’s not gonna work you  

00:03:17,040 –> 00:03:24,720
have to become visible get out there join your 
chamber of commerce meet people go to open houses  

00:03:26,320 –> 00:03:32,560
you have to get out there people have to know 
who you are okay the credibility part of it is  

00:03:32,560 –> 00:03:37,040
you have to learn the business as i 
mentioned before anyone can get their license  

00:03:37,040 –> 00:03:42,800
anyone can go take six classes pass an estate 
exam that’s the easy part the hard part is  

00:03:43,440 –> 00:03:50,480
do you really want to learn the
ethics and standards of this business  

00:03:51,600 –> 00:03:56,720
it’s there’s so much involved and you 
really have to make the effort to learn  

00:03:57,280 –> 00:04:02,960
the ins and outs of this business so that you 
can bring that customer service to your clients  

00:04:03,760 –> 00:04:10,080
if you put those two things together the 
result will be profitability that’s just secondary  

00:04:10,080 –> 00:04:15,840
to to the equation so anyway hopefully this 
helps if you’re thinking about becoming a realtor
