In Real Estate Sales, There Is No Free Lunch

       If you are working toward being a successful real estate agent, be sure you know this.  There is no free lunch.  If you are looking for a free lunch, don't look in a commission only job like selling real estate. 

      There is a force in natural law that requires us to pay for everything.  Even though this law has been around forever, people want to develop skill without practice.  They want to get pay before they work.  It doesn't work that way.  It would be like standing in front of an empty fireplace and saying," Give me some heat and then I will put in some wood.".  You have to chop the wood.  Bring it in the house.  Light the fire.  Then, you will get some heat. 

     You can complain that the system is unfair.  The system has been around for a million years. The more you understand it, the better your real estate career is. 

     Serve your customers.  Give before you expect to give.  Work on getting some listings.  Work at getting them sold.  Work on finding buyers.  Work at finding them a house.  Put in the work and rewards will come to you.  There is a corollary to "There is no free lunch".  All effort has to be rewarded.  If you work, the laws of the universe state that you  must be rewarded. It doesn't always happen like you think.  It always happens. 

     Do not look for a free lunch. Instead look for ways to serve.  Rewards will have to show up.
