When you’re a brand-new agent, getting clients is one of your top priorities. Increase your chances of finding them by trying these tips:

Don’t be shy. Tell everyone you know and those you meet that you’re a Texas REALTOR®. You can’t get hired if you keep it a secret.

Spend time in the office. Volunteer to field questions from callers or those who stop by the office looking for help.

Speak up. Find community events, such as neighborhood meetings, and offer to give a presentation related to real estate. Your presentation could be about the local market or useful tips for the type of clients you’re trying to target.

Lend a hand. Help other agents or your broker as much as you can, whether by manning their open houses or doing useful research. You aren’t trying to take their clients, but you’ll get experience and potentially gain referrals.

Don’t overlook old-school methods. Direct mail and open houses will put you right in front of people who are looking for the services you provide.

Find more advice for new agents, plus a good refresher for everyone else, in “24 tips every Texas REALTOR® needs” in the November 2014 issue of Texas REALTOR® magazine.
