Skills
Bilingual in Spanish

I live in California and want to know a good real estate company to work for that offers excellent on going training and also some sort of a mentorship that will allow me to learn and be the best agent that I can be. I have a sales background and know about the hustle of generating business. I also do mortgage loans on the side. I really want to learn the real estate sales side of things but I just really been visiting mom and pop shops that basically tell me….”nothing”. How are the Century 21’s or the Keller William’s out there. I really wish I had a mentor that I can learn from. Thanks.

    I think it looks great! Being bilingual is going to open alot of doors for you! Are you looking for any career in particular? Be prepared to get alot of phone calls from insurance companies!

    Don’t forget references. I usually just put “references available upon request”. That way, you’ll know if they call your friends/coworkers.

    BTW, I grew up in Freeport, IL!!! Go Pretzels!!! :oD

    It actually looks pretty good. The only thing I would change would be the objective – it’s really generic. I would make it more specific and more tailored to the specific position you are applying for.
    Here’s some good suggestions:

    And lots more you can find online.

    Skippy says probably not.
    Resume is horribly written.
    You change jobs too much
    and the only achievment Skippy sees on there is GED.

    That resume doesnt make you stand out.

    I would say yes, but this could use a good English/grammar review. I noted a few grammatical/spelling mistakes. I realize résumés don’t always follow the same grammatical rules as other documents, but I think there are some things that could definitely be called ‘not correct’.

    Also, you can’t trust someone who works in real estate…so no 🙁 (Just kidding…)

    “Determination to grow with a company” — I think I would delete that statement. You’ve had so many jobs, and many for just a year or two — that makes your statement seem untrue or just “fluff.”

    I would put the bilingual ability in the opening — that makes you more desireable in today’s market.

    For starters…it’s way too long!!!!!

    Definitely change your objective….especially the part where it says “to grow with a company.” It sounds kind of like something a teenager would say in their resume (please don’t take offense, you asked for help).

    Say something like……. “Seeking a position where I can apply my experience and knowledge toward the growth and success of the company.”

    Or

    “Looking to use my experience and knowledge to help in the growth and success of the company.”

    Of course, those are generic, but something along those lines sounds much more professional than what you have listed above.

    Also, I think a big downfall on your resume will be the number of jobs you have listed and the fact that you only stay with companies for a year or less (I think there was one company on there with two years)

    This does not look good at all. A hiring manager will look at that right away and know something is not right. They will also avoid hiring you for fear that you may only stay with their company for less than a year. And, in reality, it’s a huge waste of time and money for companies to train you, pay you, and possibly have you leave soon after.

    If I were you, I would only list your three most recent jobs. If you get an interview, you can always mention your oldest jobs then….but only if they ask!

    And, remember, a resume should be kept to one page!!! One page and half of another one is still ok, but remember….the shorter the better.

    Work on some things and post this resume again. We’ll let you know how it looks. But from someone who hires people on a daily basis, I would really redo this resume before turning it in…..Honestly, I would not even give you an interview if you turned this in to my company.

    Hope this helps!

    No one really uses an objective any more. You need to use Summary of Qualifications and detail what you are good at and any skills that you have. Make it stand out. Look up sample resume examples on the net and you will see what I am talking about.

    Check online classifieds, you will find a lot of internships or associate real estate agents. Most of these positions require some sort of formal training process. While your starting out, seek out the names of prominent real estate agents that can help you succeed. The most important thing is to act today, not tomorrow.

    I suggest that you go around to open houses and meet some of the agents in your area. Talk to them, get a sense of who they are, how they work, and how they like their office and their company. Pay special attention to the culture of the particular office. Meet the manager and ask if you can attend their weekly sales meeting by way of introduction to the folks at the office. I have worked for Prudential and now Windermere. The most important thing is not the brand, but the people.

    There are difficult days ahead for both real estate & mortgages, more so for real estate agents than for mortgage types I fear. When house values decrease and equity disappears, homeowners will be forced to become “for sale by owners” even though they may not wish to be.The buyer’s will still need a home loan on that “for sale by owner” house, that’s where you come in. My advice would be to expand your loan business to include the loans that will be in vogue in the days ahead. As the government tries to come to a rescue, there will be conforming type govt, financing for some. As you know there are over 80,000 less people in the mortgage business than at the start of 2007. That is opportunity. That’s my opinion and my advice after 30 years of doing both.
