There is no business without good relationships. You can never make sales if you don’t have good business relationships with your clients. Communication is crucial. Make sure to give your clients regular updates about the deal. Never wait for them to call you first. And always return their calls. Nothing can ruin your reputation like not returning clients’ calls. Be an active listener and ask questions, to understand your clients’ priorities and how to find what is best option for them.
You need to be able to make light of any issues that the property has. Every property will always have negative aspects. If you want to be a better realtor you will find potential solutions and find ways to turn the negatives into positives. If your clients are happy you will be successful. If they see a problem, you need to be the solution. Find ways to present them with opportunities rather than problems.
Ask for Feedback
The quickest way to improve in what you are doing is if you are constantly getting feedback. When we are in school we always get feedback on our work, but in life it is not always so straightforward. You need to actively seek feedback in order to get it. A good starting point for getting feedback on your services is asking passed clients. Learn to love negative feedback too, as this is going to help you improve the most.

If you need to, take technology courses. There are also a lot of online resources and trainings you can use to learn how to improve your online efforts.
