What would you do if you could redo your first year?

My name is Cody, I am 21, and I am half way through my state's licensing program. I will be finishing up the course in about 2 and a half weeks. I am just about to put in my notice for my day job and I am ready to jump into real estate full time. I am also in college full time and will finish up this semester in April. I am going to put that on hold for now. 

My goal is to make 100k in the first 12 months of holding my license. I know it is going to be difficult, but I am determined to make it happen!

Therefore, I am asking you agents out there... What would you do differently in your first year if you could go back and do it all again?

  • Mark, I watched your videos on the similar topic (great videos by the way, I enjoy them). As you mention building a database I believe you recommended Podio, correct? Can programs such as this or similar ones track contacts and let you sort them by where you met them or their level of interest in buying/selling? Can you also e-mail or follow up directly from the program or do you recommended following up with calling, etc?
  • Yes. podio can do all of that. Podio will email them for you and you can list your top people in your network who you should call, meet etc. The more personal the better. Better to have 50 really great people who will refer people to you and know you really well than 1,000 people you email once in a while and don't give  a crap about you.
