  • The notion that introverts can’t succeed in real estate is a myth.
  • Introverts need to think about their business in a new way and pay more attention to detail.
  • With the right mindset, introverted people can overcome solitary tendencies to achieve true real estate success.

Inman Connect San Francisco is going to be a blast! You’re going, right?

While you’re there, pay attention to whether the people and energy of the conference environment invigorate and recharge you, or whether you recharge your batteries by relaxing in between sessions.

If it’s the latter, then you may be a natural introvert — and on today’s show, we’re going to continue our discussion of what that means for your real estate career.

Being an introvert is not a bad thing — in fact, some of the most successful people in real estate are natural introverts. You just need to learn how to capitalize on the strengths that come with your naturally solitary nature and challenge yourself to push beyond those natural limitations when it comes to engaging with others.

It can be done, and it can make you more successful than most natural extroverts could ever hope to be!

If you’re naturally a little more shy, or maybe even a full-blown introvert, you can still be just as successful in real estate as more outgoing agents are — it just takes a bit more work and some attention to detail to get there.

Today, we’re going to help you identify whether or not you’re a natural introvert, and we’ll be discussing how introverted people can overcome their solitary tendencies to achieve true real estate success. Remember, some of the nation’s most successful agents are introverts!
