So, what is the appeal of being a real estate coach? Well aside from altruistic reasons, aka the satisfaction of helping others, there are plenty of other more business related reasons.
Before you establish a coaching program, establish a coaching relationship with your clients. You’ll probably want to get to know your fellow real estate coaches and to learn more about their experience in terms of coaching. This is a perfect opportunity for networking.
The more real estate coaching clients you get, the more likely you are to get referred too. This will help your business to grow and become more recognisable.

How To Become a Real Estate Coach?
Well, as with any other real estate career you need to have a license to conduct a coaching program. You can get a real estate coaching license, for example one that NAR has, as well as a general coaching license.
The most important part of being a real estate coach on the other hand is to create your own coaching program.
Think about what your prime expertise is. Are you great with first time homebuyers or are you a sellers agent? What real estate niche are you expert in? What are your strongest selling points?
Think about what specific skills you might bring to the table and how you will charge for your real estate program.
Based on those answers you can start developing your real estate coaching program.
So, what’s next? Of course, the marketing of your real estate coaching course is the next step. Use social media channels, offer discounts to your first clients, use ads to promote your coaching program.
