I am now one of the old pros. My real estate license is older than some of my colleagues.
Having said that, after all these years, I still remember some agents who were extremely kind, generous and helpful when I was a newbie. And they're still in business, and I still love to sell their listings.
And there were a few who weren't so kind. And most of them are onto their next career.
As a veteran, I have to say that I absolutely love new agent energy. When I feel like I'm about to go into some kind of burn out shock, I pray for a good newbie to bring in a contract on one of my listings. It's like an energy surge from the Everready Bunny!
So, to you newbies - don't let anybody intimidate you! Suck up whatever knowledge you can from your experinced colleagues - and the good ones do share generously.
