In this real estate careers article we cover the 5 daily habits which are the keys to success on our team. Applying these 5 habits doesn't require you to have any previous real estate experience, and staying true to them offers huge financial benefits which grow like compounding interest over time. It's been our experience that the agents who embrace these habits can expect to make $125,000 - $175,000 annually by the time they've completed their second full year on our team. Just as important, the entire team benefits when every agent consistently applies these habits. Each of us becomes more creative, more productive, and more efficient when our fellow agents share the right mindset and the right focus.
