“If it is to be, it is up to me.”   If you have made the decision to build a real estate team, then commit to the idea and start acting like you need a talented team around you.  You should never make a hire until you already have more business than you can handle.  So if you can commit to proactively attempting to generate business on a systematic and continuous basis over time it is realistic to assume that you will need the help of other people to continue lead generating in the future.

Always take time to hire top talent.  Agents that don’t hire in advance of the need will often wait until they are far too busy to make an effective hire.  They hire out of emergency to avert a crisis rather than hire strategically to grow a business.  If you want to be a top producing agent, you must learn that you are only as good as your last hire.  So its important that you make and take the time to be selective so that you don’t end up pushing the panic button and hiring your cousin that just happens to need a job right now.
