Zillow Advice: Agents - What is the best process to becoming a Listing Agent? I've only worked with buyers. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-best-process-to-becoming-a-Listing-Agent-I%27ve-only-worked-with-buyers/509945/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate Find a nice sized area you ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-best-process-to-becoming-a-Listing-Agent-I%27ve-only-worked-with-buyers/509945/ Find a nice sized area you know and start "farming" it. Walk it or mail to it at least once a month. Meet the neighbors as you walk it. Drop off your cards and or notepads. Start small but be consistent. Repetition is key and you will do well. Good luck!

Having a good attitude is key :)<br/><br/>Next, I would see if there is an agent in your office that you can shadow for a few transactions, or if you have a potential seller already, you can have an agent in your office come along to the listing presentation, help with pricing, strategy, and open houses.<br/><br/>I really hope it turns out great for you.<br/><br/>All the best,<br/><br/>Arpad<br/><br/> Fri, 06 Sep 2013 02:18:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-best-process-to-becoming-a-Listing-Agent-I%27ve-only-worked-with-buyers/509945/ 2013-09-06T02:18:00Z Postcards.

Invite neighbors often enough, and you'll meet sellers soon enough.<br/><br/>All the best, Wed, 04 Sep 2013 16:45:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-best-process-to-becoming-a-Listing-Agent-I%27ve-only-worked-with-buyers/509945/ 2013-09-04T16:45:00Z Thanks Rebecca, I'll keep ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-best-process-to-becoming-a-Listing-Agent-I%27ve-only-worked-with-buyers/509945/ <p>Thanks Rebecca, I'll keep you posted :)</p> Wed, 04 Sep 2013 15:53:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-best-process-to-becoming-a-Listing-Agent-I%27ve-only-worked-with-buyers/509945/ 2013-09-04T15:53:00Z There isn't a difference ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-best-process-to-becoming-a-Listing-Agent-I%27ve-only-worked-with-buyers/509945/ There isn't a difference in the license.&nbsp; I have been an REO listing agent for a while and since REO has dried up, I've had issue getting regular sellers to commit.&nbsp; If you figure out what works, let me know. :) Wed, 04 Sep 2013 15:47:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-best-process-to-becoming-a-Listing-Agent-I%27ve-only-worked-with-buyers/509945/ 2013-09-04T15:47:00Z
