Christie Cannon has been a successful real estate agent for Keller Williams Realty for over a decade. In the past four years her team has been the top Keller Williams Group in Frisco, TX. Cannon believes that anyone can be a successful real estate agent with the right character. She’s identified several key things every agent needs:
- A healthy amount of personality & drive. Real estate agents have to talk to a broad variety of people each day, and they must cultivate trust and healthy communication with their clients. Naturally extroverted people, those who can captivate their clients, have no problem building these relationships.
- Creativity, for problems that come up unexpectedly or are especially hard to overcome. Sometimes a client comes to a house you have spent days researching and picking out just for them and immediately decides he or she doesn’t want to see it, saying they want to move on to another one. Always be prepared with a backup plan, and have the ability to think on your feet so that you can bring the most value to your clients.
- A huge desire to learn. The only thing constant in real estate is change. Success, for both an agent and their client, is directly tied to the agent’s knowledge, experience, and willingness to learn.
