The Benefits of Getting a Realtor License – WREIA – 301-231-5438

Finding a great Real Estate Agent can pay huge dividends in 2013. And if you can’t find one, you might choose to become a Realtor yourself.

I started in this business nearly two decades ago. In some professions, I would be getting ready to “retire.” Recently, some of the guys I went to college with are starting to talk about retirement. When they start talking about what they are going to “do” once they retire – I kinda feel bad. You see, after two decades….

It feels like I am just getting started!
I’m just starting to get good at this – why do I want to retire?

Through the years, I went through various stages of learning and education, which was followed by an increase in business – and success. Maybe you shared this same experience?

The process went something like this:

  • You found a new strategy and were excited to get started. Maybe you even felt like you were learning some new secret. You are thinking to yourself – “This is great! How can everyone not be doing this?!!”
  • This was followed by a period of frustration because after you implemented this new strategy in your business nothing seemed to work – at first.
  • Then, you get excited again – because something “clicks.” You started having some success using your “new” strategy.

When I look back on my career I can see a few points where my income grew, not just a little, but exponentially.

One of those times was when I decided to become a licensed Real Estate Agent. At first I was excited, but then quickly became frustrated when I discovered some of the restrictions that came with my new license. It took me a few months before I learned how to use the new “power” I had just given my business. For me, getting my license was the right move, at the right time, and I have never looked back.

The second time my income took a big jump, was when I decided to work with, and partner on projects with other investors – and agents. I found that if I could find an agent who understood what I was doing, they could quickly become invaluable to my business.

Let me be clear here – When I got my license, I didn’t quit all my other activities that had helped build my business to that point. I simply added a license to my business. Looking back, getting my license magnified the effect of the work I was already doing.

I invite you to come join me and a hundred or so other investors and agents from around the DC area tomorrow night. Come meet some of our members who – years ago – wanted to make a change in their work, and in their life. They found our community of WREIA members, shared their goal of wanting to double their income – and then made it happen.

As we do every year,
we have January WREIA membership specials that we
only make available in January.

It’s not complicated – and unlike some groups you may have seen in the past,
next month will not bring a new special “one time only” membership deal.
At WREIA, you can get a discount in January – and that’s it.
(That “this month only” malarkey drives me crazy.)

Our goal at WREIA is to keep you updated on the most current trends that affect us nationally, regionally, and most important – locally. In 2013 we will continue down the path we started last year of introducing you to local professionals who are active in our local DC/Baltimore area markets.

Tomorrow we will kick off 2013 by introducing you to local investor/agents who are active and in some cases – knocking the ball out of the park – here in the DC area. You will also have an opportunity to ask them a few questions that pertains to your situation.

One thing makes our WREIA group great – and it starts with the leaders in our group. ALL of our most successful members want to help you succeed. They have realized that if you have success, they in turn will find success too. Let us help you set up your business for success in 2013.

Come join us tomorrow night. You will be glad you did.
