22 licensed agents have flocked to DJ&Lindsey Real Estate in the last 30 days to build their career.
This is more than just a growth statistic for our brokerage. It's a testament to resilience, perseverance, and an unwavering commitment to achieve one's dreams in the face of obstacles and challenges.
Starting a business isn't an easy road.
Statistics are telling: according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 20% of small businesses fail in their first year, and 50% do not survive beyond the fifth. The numbers can seem daunting, but they also highlight the resilience of those who choose to walk this path.
In real estate, the journey can be even tougher. National Association of Realtors reports suggest that 87% of all new agents fail within the first five years of their career. That's an insanely high failure rate, and it underscores the fact that succeeding in this field requires hard work, knowledge, and a robust support system.
So then why do these 22 individuals choose to join us?
My belief is because they haven't given up on their dreams of owning a successful business and serving their clients with integrity and excellence. These agents recognize the power of asking for help and leveraging the support and resources provided by a brokerage like DJ & Lindsey Real Estate.
Asking for help is often misconstrued as a sign of weakness. However, I'd argue that it's one of the most empowering things a business owner can do. It signifies their refusal to bow down to hurdles. Instead, they seek out solutions, they learn, they grow, and they persist. The acknowledgment of needing support doesn't weaken their drive or ambition. Instead it highlights their commitment to their goals, to their dream of being a business owner, and to their dedication to serving their clients.
We believe in creating a supportive environment where every agent feels valued, is provided with the necessary resources and tools, and is part of a community that champions their growth and success. And our new agents' decision to join us affirms our commitment to this vision.
The fact that these 22 real estate professionals chose us, in spite of the adversity and obstacles that can be part of the entrepreneurial journey, speaks volumes about their strength, and dedication.
Join me in welcoming them with open arms as they embark on this exciting new phase of their professional journey. Their decision to pursue their dreams, despite the odds, is inspiring, and I am personally excited to see the heights they will reach with DJ & Lindsey Real Estate.
Thank you for being part of our story, and here's to writing many more chapters of success together!
