Hello all, my name is Matt Wroughton, a Realtor with Coldwell Banker Premier Group. My goal is to assist Missourians with their residential real estate needs. I was born and raised in the St. Louis area and am as passionate about the growth of the region as I am about real estate. I’m sure there will be more about my passions in a later blog post. I have decided to start blogging because I want to share my experiences beginning my new business as a REALTOR®. This is not the easiest business to launch. There are so many experienced agents in the state, city, and my office with whom I’m instantly in ‘competition’. But this industry offers so many other great things, such as schedule flexibility, getting to meet so many great people, learning the city very well, and many others.
The initial process begins with going to a class and passing the test, not the easiest. The process only gets more interesting from there. I will be continuing to expand on this process throughout this blog. If you are interested in becoming a REALTOR®, I will attempt to give you the best insight on the process as I can. I will also be describing the challenges of building my business. There are also many interesting situations into which a REALTOR® can get. These always entertain me, and I hope will entertain you as well.
For those of you who are considering making the jump into of becoming a REALTOR®, I will be writing for you, giving you tips for how to succeed, hopefully, in this industry. I will share my triumphs and my mistakes, so you can hopefully avoid making the same mistakes. If you are interested in buying or selling your house, I will be writing for you. You will gain insight into who I am, and how I might assist in this process. But mostly I will be writing for myself, to help document and fully process the progress I am making through this new stage in my life. I hope everyone will enjoy my writing, and I am always interested in feedback to make it even better. There are many ways to get in touch with me, and please feel free to use any of them to do so. This blog will help me grow and allow me to share with you all about the life of a REALTOR® and what I have learned and/or experienced recently. Have a great day and let’s go see some houses.
