Results - Your Real Estate Agent Personality Type Is - 

Mostly A’s - The Techie - You are the agent everyone looks to for677.jpg advice on the latest marketing trends. You are likely active on many social media platforms and set yourself apart from other agents. Go you! However, don’t forget many traditional marketing efforts, like flyers and open house signs still have high ROI.

Mostly B’s – The Team Player – You don’t know what you’d do674.jpg without your team member(s). You are likely a people person, which is what attracted you to real estate in the first place. However, maybe try hosting an open house without your team members for once.

Mostly D’s - Local Hero – You got into the real estate industry 062.jpgbecause it’s a natural fit! You pretty much know everyone in town, so why not sell everyone’s home and make a living!
