Your Real Estate License Doesn't Guarantee Success...Here's Why with Tiffany Willis-Johnson

podcast May 17, 2022

In real estate, the courses that get us qualified don’t teach us everything we need to know - in fact, they barely scratch the surface. This is an industry with so much depth, and we have to learn as much as we can to have staying power.

Right now, there are more real estate agents in the industry than ever before, but most won’t last long. They don’t commit to learning beyond their initial training.

What does it take to stay in the business for years, and even decades? How do we set a vision and follow through?

In this episode, I’m joined by broker and Chicago Agent's Rookie of the Year nominee Tiffany Willis-Johnson. She shares how she sold 30 homes in her first year, and we talk about how to set yourself up for success from day 1 in real estate.

We have to be laser-beam focused on the end goal no matter how uncomfortable it is.  - Marki Lemons-Ryhal
