7 Ways to Improve Your Real Estate Recruitment

Fortunately, there are several strategies that can help you overcome these challenges, and be more successful in recruiting and retaining great agents.

1

Always keep recruiting

One of the biggest challenges for real estate recruiters is scrambling at the last minute to find a replacement for an agent who has left. You can easily compensate for this problem by adopting an always-recruiting approach.

2

Incentivize referrals

Across many industries, employee referrals remain the most popular source for hiring—and for good reason. Roughly 72 percent of interviews and 65 percent of external hires come as a result of referrals by employees.

3

Focus on your culture

It’s tough to differentiate your agency from others because the nature of the work is often the same, and your pay is likely competitive.

4

Break the formula

Try experimenting with approaches that break the mold of traditional recruitment strategies. If you rely on a basic script or a template for your job description, you’re going to look like every other agency out there, and you aren’t going to attract the attention of top talent.

5

Choose your marketing channels wisely

There are many marketing and advertising channels you could use for your recruiting, including inbound and outbound options.

6

Keep tabs on employee satisfaction

Your recruitment strategy won’t mean much if you have a high turnover rate. The best real estate recruitment strategies also pay attention to long-term employee satisfaction.

7
