October is Luxury Month on Inman. Inman Handbooks offer deep dives on luxury marketing and agent branding, luxury staging, referrals, and more. We’re thinking about what luxury means now, examining how the pandemic is reshaping the needs of luxury buyers, and talking to top luxury agents, all month long.

Pulse is a recurring column where we ask for readers’ takes on varying topics in a weekly survey and report back with our findings.

From attracting international buyers to tapping into larger commissions, working as a luxury real estate agent has its perks. So, let’s say you’ve decided to pursue a career in the highly coveted (and now growing) high-end market, where do you start?

That’s exactly the question we’re asking our readers this week. We’d like to know what it takes to break into that world as an agent and how to become a trusted, go-to expert who’s always top-of-mind and in front of past and future clients.

What is the most effective thing newbies — those starting from scratch as well as seasoned agents making a shift — can do while building a career in the luxury sector? What are the top skills they need to really hone in on? Let us know your thoughts.

We’ll compile a list of the top responses and post them on Inman next Tuesday.
