We've interviewed thousands of successful founders at Starter Story and asked what advice they would give to entrepreneurs who are just getting started.

Here's the best advice we discovered for becoming a real estate agent:

#1: Gino Barbaro, founder of Jake & Gino:

We chatted with with Gino, founder of Jake & Gino ($200K/month). In our interview, Gino says:

You need to ask your customers/students what questions and challenges they are facing. I made the mistake of creating content that I liked or thought was relevant. I am not trying to add value to my life, but my students.

Additionally:

It was a grind for years to try to sell these low-ticket items. We wanted to become the white glove service of multifamily, and an online micro-course was not going to help us get to that goal.

Further:

Focus on building your people so your people can help build the business.

#5: Brandon Turner, founder of Open Door Capital:

We chatted with with Brandon, founder of Open Door Capital ($1.5M/month). In our interview, Brandon says:

#7: Rachel Hernandez, founder of Adventures in Mobile Homes:

We chatted with with Rachel, founder of Adventures in Mobile Homes ($10K/month). In our interview, Rachel says:

When things don’t go your way, you need to be prepared mentally to push forward despite the obstacles. Never give up. Know your “why” first and the “how-to” will come later with time and experience.

Additionally:

When it comes down to it, build your business around you and your personality. Not the other way around. If you can do this as an entrepreneur, then you’re one step ahead of the rest and you’ll eventually find success.
