I feels wonderful to have selected the brokerage with all the shiny stuff but here is something they never tell you. You need to be the cultivator, the seed, the rain, the sun, the tender and the harvester. Expect no help from the moon. "

Get a good mentor and market consistently.  Don't ever be too busy to keep your marketing schedule or your business will be feast or famine.  Hire someone if you need to.  You MUST market consistently.

Boundaries, have boundaries: a true day off, as best you can a set time daily for "down tools" and to never work while on vacation; get a vacation buddy at the office. 

Bonus Tip: when buyers are late, stick to the planned time allotted, and just let them know they will be seeing 3, not 6 houses now.
