Success in commercial real estate belongs to only those that can direct and control their working day and in doing the most important prospecting issues. You have to prospect every day and you should do it at the times that will give you the best outcomes.

Have a serious think about this. Do not prospect just because someone says that you have to. You have to believe that Real Estate Broker Salary the process is essential and critical to your future. Then you have to set about doing it. No excuses please.

If you haven’t got your ‘head in gear’ when it comes to prospecting, then your results will be poor. Clear and positive thinking in the process will give you better prospecting outcomes. Positive prospecting thinking will drive better results.

I like to call this ‘mental advantage’. You see it in any personal sport and on the team playing field in so many ways.

Many agents have told me that they will not prospect by cold calling and door knocking. They say that they will not be successful and that they are wasting their time. If that is what they think then that is what they will get. To be the best you have to stretch your own skills and comfort zone. Start prospecting today and do not stop.
