For many agents, an introduction to the day-to-day of real estate comes in the form of a book recommended by a friend, colleague or broker. Whether it’s The Millionaire Real Estate Agent, Your First 365 Days in Real Estate or a newer book like The Agent’s Edge, a great book recommendation can be truly life- (and career-) changing.

So, for those of you who love to share your faves, we wondered: What’s the No. 1 book you’re recommending to the agents in your life? Are you focusing on general business-building recommendations or specific strategies? Do you recommend self-help and productivity tomes or how-tos? What’s the book that changed you so much you can’t resist sharing it? Here’s your reading list:

  • Let’s Get Real or Let’s Not Play by Mahan Khalsa
  • How to Win Friends and Influence People
  • The Millionaire Real Estate Agent (multiple)
  • Ninja Selling and my No. 2 would be Never Split the Difference and No. 3 would be Getting Things Done
