Learning the ropes

Edwin Correa
Posted Feb 9 2024, 18:40

Hey folks,

As a newly licensed real estate agent eager to venture into house flipping and long-term rentals, I'm contemplating positioning myself as an investor-friendly agent. There are a couple of reasons behind this inclination: firstly, I'm drawn to the intricacies of data analysis and crunching numbers inherent in the investment process. Secondly, I see assisting other investors as a fantastic opportunity to glean insights and prepare myself for my own ventures.

For those seasoned in this realm, I'm reaching out for your wisdom. What advice would you offer to help me achieve my dual objectives? Specifically, how can I establish myself as a go-to investor-friendly agent, and what steps can I take to efficiently learn the ins and outs of real estate investment? Should I continue the traditional agency road map or am I missing some other strategy that might help get the knowledge and experience needed to meet both objectives?

Looking forward to soaking up your invaluable advice!

Warm regards,

Welcome to BiggerPockets!

I will tell you to continue your agency training. Think about working with investors like Batman. He has a baseline set of skills, then there’s the utility belt for specific situations.

Your agency training is the baseline training that will help you as a real estate agent. Working with investors will require you to learn specific skills that help your clients get to closing.

You’re in the right place for connecting with investors.

I wish you all the best.

Hamp,

I'm genuinely grateful for your support and the confirmation that pursuing my agency training further is the correct move. It's reassuring to realize I'm on the right track, and even more so, to be part of a nurturing community where forming connections with investors and gaining insights from seasoned experts like you is highly valued. Please let me know if I can ever be of service to you in the Atlanta area. It would be my pleasure to help in you any way.
