Top Takeaways: 

  • Lindsay Dreyer’s Advice for New Agents
  • “You can’t do it by yourself. Get a mentor or go to a brokerage that gives you excellent training. I think compared to when I entered into the business in 2007 to now. It is infinitely harder. I think that the cost of getting into the business is a lot higher. Join a brokerage that’s like a team or join a team because that team is going to be invested in your success and will be able to give you leads or a system. It’s really tapping into someone’s previous success.”

“That’s really why I started City Chic was because I didn’t think I was an anomaly [in wanting brokerage support], and I felt like there would be other agents that would appreciate the support that I would have appreciated.”

“The biggest one [problem on a typical agent website] I think is that they all look the same. In the sea of every real estate agent and broker, there are so many websites out there. How are you going to look different, and how are you going to speak to the consumer to stand out?”
