Hiring is a key process in any business, and in the real estate world, creating a team is setting yourself up for the future – so choose wisely.

That is why you need to be very careful when you are moving forward with the hiring process, and make sure your new hirings have what you need from them.

Traits in Real Estate Agents

There are few different traits that are shared between successful real estate agents, and it is important to know what they are.

Solution-Based Thinking 

Getting leads and closing deals can become hard for real estate agents. However, there are creative solutions that can be created in order to make a sale and find clients.

Making sure you hire real estate agents that appreciate a challenge and are always driven towards success is important.


Just as you have the drive to create something for yourself when creating a team, people you hire also need to be driven for success themselves. 

Making sure you get someone who has a drive for success and wants to progress their real estate career further is an essential part of your real estate career. 

Being Honest

Having moral values is a part of being a proper real estate agent, and that is something you need to look out for. 

Maintaining honesty and integrity with clients, and people in general is important to ensure you have good relationships and success in the real estate world. 

On top of that, if you want to join real estate boards in neighborhoods, you need to be someone with connections and the respect of people in the neighborhood. 

Grit and Determination

It can get tough being in real estate because there will be times of low number of leads and clients.

However, it is important to always keep on top of everything, keep trying to generate leads and close deals, follow-up with others and maintain your perseverance towards your work.

Passion for Architecture 

Being able to describe and understand the value and significance of homes and properties that someone is selling, is important. If your new team member can understand a property’s architectural value, that can become a plus point when it comes to selling the property.

Charismatic Personality

Having a charismatic personality is one of the most ideal qualities to have when in any form of sales. Success in real estate depends heavily on how well you can convey your information to others. 

For example, if a real estate agent understands the architecture and value behind a property, it is important to be able to convey the information to potential clients.

Local Market Research

Researching and understanding the local market helps a real estate agent to sell and properties better. Knowing the people or homes in the area allow an agent to create strategies and have insights into pricing techniques. 

Real Estate Experience

Real estate agents are expected to have knowledge of the area they are operating in, and your potential clients will expect that from you. Whether or not you are new to the area you are selling properties in, people will expect you to be able to give them some knowledge

Provide people with some historical knowledge or fun facts about the surrounding area or the region in general. This provides them with an experience of being with a local tour guide and a real estate agent altogether, and can drastically improve your relationship with them. 

Honesty and Integrity

Oftentimes, people are just looking to sell or buy properties, but do not really have much of an idea about the valuation. When it comes to dealing with these people, you need to be honest with them and give them a clear idea of how the process is and what value they can expect for their properties.

Giving truthful information early on in the process will establish a sense of honesty between you and the client, creating trust. On top of that, you will not face the backlash of a client finding out later that their property is valued lower than what they think, and then become demotivated from selling. 

Understanding Technology

With the progress of technology and its integration into the real estate market, any new real estate agent needs to know how to use technology in their work. For example, CRMs for real estate agents have become very popular because of their use, and real estate agents should go into the job knowing this technology.


Overall, real estate agents need to have certain different traits in order to be successful, and it can become hard without having them.

However, traits can be built and learned over time, practicing your sales pitches and honing your communication skills can help you build up your repertoire with people. Keeping a keen eye for useful information and utilizing it to your advantage is key.
