While much of a new agent’s success depends on her own motivation, there are a few ways brokers can help a new agent flourish:

Create an environment for success. Provide access to training, technology, and other support services. Start by sharing information about TRUSuccess, a new-agent training program that shows agents how to prospect, generate leads, and market themselves.

Be a mentor, or help find one. Facilitate mentorships between seasoned agents and new agents in your brokerage. A new agent will benefit by observing day-to-day dealings in the business, from how to work with clients to building experience in a specialty.

Give feedback. When your new agent does something great, say so. The same goes for providing constructive criticism. A mix of both positive feedback and useful advice will help your new agents build confidence in their work.

Share TAR resources. The Texas Association of REALTORS® has plenty of tools that will help a new agent, including Texas REALTOR® magazine, more than 400 frequently asked legal questions and answers, and free webinars on a variety of topics.
