Is Your Office A 'Smoke-Filled' Room?

Is your office a smoke filled room? No, its not what you might be imagining. I'm talking about good smoke...not the kind that sticks on your clothes and your hair but the kind that sticks to your mind and your attitude. I'm talking about the ideas and techniques you acquire just from being in the same room full of Real Estate experts--that kind of smoke.

Many new agents don't even realize the dynamics of just being associated with a group of top producing and energetic Realtors. Their techniques and styles rub off and if the 'rookie' is estute he or she will stay close enough take some of the essence for themself. Too many new licensees begin this career with certain expectations only to find out pretty quickly that the 'river to success' is a challenging one, to be sure. It only makes sense to observe (and stay close) as more experienced professionals navigate the channels and address the perils of a competitive real estate market.

Osmosis is a very powerful force in the universe and a key component to learning this business. If you are new or are considering a career in Chicago Real Estate sales then you need to think about the environment that will surround you. You not only need to 'stick your toe' into the water to test the temperature, you need to 'take a deep breath' and smell the air. If the 'smoke is of the 'good' variety, then I advise you to follow not only your heart but your nose!
