Broker in St. Paul, Minn Teresa Boardman  talks about the definition of successful real estate agent: “One real estate agent I consider successful because he has sold so many homes told me that he defines success as the ability to support his family the way he wants to.”

“I know real estate agents who have thousands of followers on Twitter and high Klout scores who only sell one or two houses a year. I would not choose an agent by his or her Klout score or number of Twitter followers.

Other agents sell a lot of houses, but don’t have much of a presence on the Internet.

We don’t have a universal definition or mathematical formula describing “success” for real estate agents, but I think actual transactions should at least be part of the equation.”
