Learn Real Estate


Save enough money to meet the initial costs, which include renting or buying a place, office equipment, logo design, an office sign, property posters, website design and insurance. You also need to set aside sufficient funds to cover operating expenses for at least three or four months, as advised by Tom Pleimling, owner agent of Tom Pleimling Realty in Alexandria, Virginia. Operating costs include rent, advertising, payments, online payments, services and miscellaneous items.

Know the requirements to obtain an agent license in your state, and obtain your real estate agent license. In most states of the United States, you must pass a course, be 21 years old and have worked as a real estate seller for two years.

Choose a location for your office. Consider the area, visibility and parking restrictions for your agents and clients, as well as square footage (square meters).

Establish a website that looks professional, and employs a service that allows you to display all listings in the Multiple Listing Service (as well as your own). Approximately 80 percent of homebuyers start looking for property online, according to a Forbes.com article titled "How to Run a Real Estate Agency: Technology," which quotes REAL Trends and a Harris survey. 


Take out insurance against errors and omissions. As an agent, you legally have indirect responsibility for the actions of your agents. The insurance against errors and omissions covers you in the event that an unsatisfied client demands the agency.

Develop an agreement with independent contractors that outlines your expectations regarding agent behavior, and includes stipulation of commissions with agents individually. Since they are independent contractors, agents do not need to remain in the office, but you can expect them to adhere to a code of ethics, and you can also describe your policies for the use of office space and when agents can answer calls not requested.

Equip your office 
The essentials include the furniture in the waiting area and the meeting room, a desk and a chair for the reception, a fax, a photocopier, telephone system and at least one computer. As independent contractors, agents can bring their own computers. If you provide desks for agents, you can choose to charge them a fee for their use to offset operating costs.

Recruit agents
Established agents will have continuity that will benefit you. The new ones can bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm to your agency, but you must train them carefully to make sure they don't make legal mistakes. They may also require sales training.

Develop a clientele
Each agent will probably bring their own customers; but also advertise your agency in newspapers, real estate publications, and on radio and television also recommends organizing an open house in the office, sending emails and making your profile known through advertising. Advertising may include, for example, sponsoring a charity or a minor league baseball team. Also, consider hiring an optimization company to stimulate the visibility of your website in search engines.
