Real Estate Agent Business Plan – Part 1

By Ken Jones | Real Estate Agent Business Plan

Real Estate Agent Business Plan - Part 1

The success and failure of every business can be traced back to their business plan; or the absence of a business plan.

And, since every real estate agent is, in fact, operating their own small business, they need to create and follow a practical business plan (assuming they want to be successful).

In this video, I provide real estate agents an overview of things they should consider when developing their personal business plan.

This information is for every real estate agent; whether you're a newbie or an experienced professional, this video has some very useful information for you.
