Publisher's Summary

Thousands of new real estate agents have bought The Honest Real Estate Agent since it was first published in 2011. This audiobook will help you build a fulfilling and meaningful career. One of the drawbacks of most real estate schools is they teach you only how to pass the real estate exam. They don't teach you how to succeed as a real estate Agent once you get your license. Experienced and new agents will benefit greatly from listening to this audiobook.

More promotions than subject matter

If you are listening on Audible the real content doesn't start until chapter 7. Up to that point it is all testimonials.

Sounds good to me

I'm a guy that's just getting started in real estate so I think this guide is a bit helpful. Honestly it didn't get five stars because it didn't get me at how to ensure a paycheck. But the advice was great as to what can be expected and what to do in the profession.

Incredibly insightful

This is such valuable information for a new realtor! I found the insights so helpful and can rest assured knowing a new career in real estate doesn't have to conflict with a professional mindset.

I wondered what being a realtor was like and what it entailed

So, I bought this book and it was the perfect fit. If you are curious wether you should go into real estate this is a great primer to give you an idea of what your day will look like and what personality traits will help you succeed. If you have already begun as a realtor and want advanced selling techniques, this book isn’t geared toward that but can give you good advice on where and how to find that information. Jannatpour uses a formal but approachable voice to address the core foundation of being a successful AND contented realtor. He gives advice about what he sees as the biggest mistake realtors make, sacrificing scruples for closings, all the way to how to build, fill, and maintain a client pipeline. He includes testimonials from other realtors in comparison to his own assertions about being a successful realtor. This book is perfect if you have had daydreams about a change in career and want to know if real estate is the right option for you. It has been instrumental in my decision to pursue real estate by helping me to focus my energy. Jannatpour has helped me to see what attitudes have not been motivating me, as well as showing me what practices I can nurture to be the best version of myself that I aspire to.

Good Advice for Beginners, Skip the First and Last

This book goes over the fundamentals of being a real estate agent. Anyone who just started as a realtor and feels lost should listen to this book. You'll learn how to find clients, what to look for in a brokerage, and the fundamental of sales. Make sure you skip the first (chapters 1 - 6) and the last (chapters 42 - 43) of the book, as these are nothing but fluff. The first and last are mainly just testimonials about how great this book is (bla, bla, bla).

Great book

I just finished listening for the second time since having the title a couple of months. I highly recommend this book for anyone new or veterans of Real Estate. We need more "honest real estate agents". This book has helped me get a great start and I plan to listen as my career progresses.

Great for new agents!

What did you love best about The Honest Real Estate Agent?

I am about to become a real estate agent and have been reading everything I can get my hands on. Very few focus on the beginning agent -- and most are teasers so that you will buy their services. This is almost a "how to" book, explaining different sales techniques and other things to really consider as you find your way through real estate as a career. I am going to restart and take notes.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Honest Real Estate Agent?

His sales philosophy

Any additional comments?

Has a great web site to accompany book!

Great read and helped me decide to get my license!

I really loved this book. Mario has helped me with my decision to move forward to get my real estate license. His honest advice helped me with some of the fears that were holding me back. I will and have already recommend the book to my friends and family. This is a great read if you're looking to change careers in your late 30s. I really liked hearing testimony from other realtors new and experienced. I'm excited for my next journey and have moved forward with signing up for my the real estate class.
