If you are getting started it is not a full time job it is a full time job plus lots of hours. Put in the time, work smart and treat everyone you meet like they might be a potential client. One day they just might be one.

Don't ask real estate agents what to do. They've been giving bad advise for decades.

You know you're new, no one else needs to know.  Surround yourself with positive, knowledgeable, professional, go to Realtors.  Don't do anything to jeopardize your future image, alway get along with and respect your fellow Realtors.  They are more important to your future than any client will ever be.
