1. Be a community player.
Build your reputation by joining realtors’ organizations in your area, or by attending community events such as flea markets or ball games. This is a great way to gain visibility and to reach out to potential property buyers.
2. Reach out a helping hand.
As much as possible, help out other real estate professionals by providing them with leads and referrals. They might be able to help you out in return someday.
3. Capitalize on new technology.
Make sure that you have a presence online: Create social media accounts, put up your own website, and join online real estate groups.
