Only 40% of new agents are confident about a long-term career in real estate
The no-cost coaching program gives real estate pros training, tools and mentorship to help them find early career success and build a lasting real estate business
SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — With the number of real estate professionals nearly double that of homes currently for sale, agents may be getting squeezed out of potential transactions by their competitors just as often as their home buying clients. Realtor.com®‘s newly launched #ThrivePastFive Coaching Program is designed to help new agents find business success and growth in a vigorously competitive market.
Far too many new real estate agents don’t make it past year five. Last year, Realtor.com® surveyed more than 2,000 agents and discovered lead generation and conversion, marketing and advertising, and adequate hands-on training were among the top challenges for those early in their real estate careers. Given the early struggles to find success in the business, which are often heightened during a challenging market, only 4 in 10 new agents said they are confident about having a long-term career in real estate.
The #ThrivePastFive Coaching Program is designed specifically with new agents and their success in mind. Through blogs, workbooks, webinars and more, the no-cost coaching program dives into business critical areas that #ThrivePastFive survey participants highlighted as top pain points, including lead generation and conversion, personal branding, and marketing/budgets. With a new theme each quarter, the program is intended to provide agents with actionable takeaways that they can implement into their real estate business.
“Realtor.com® is a trusted partner to agents and brokers in building and sustaining their real estate business,” said Donna August, vice president of B2B Marketing at Realtor.com®. “Our #ThrivePastFive Coaching Program is designed to give new agents access to intel, expertise and actionable strategies at a time when they likely need it most, so they can find success not only in today’s challenging market but in the years to come.”
