New Blood….Easy To Mold And Fun To Be Around


We were all new at one point in our career.  Some of us made it and some didn’t.   The difference depended on the mentoring or lack thereof.

Via Barbara Todaro (RE/MAX Executive Realty in Franklin, Ma):

The best part of being a Newbie is that the newly licensed agent doesn’t know anything about the business, and that’s a good thing.  Newbies are the virgins of the real estate business.  They have no habits because they have not been exposed to seasoned agents with bad habits.  They are eager, energetic and have a hunger for knowledge.

When an office hires a newly licensed agent, you’ll notice that the other agents in the office take on a new attitude.  Fresh blood in an office is a positive addition, especially when that new agent brings in new business immediately.  That will make the low man on the totem pole stand up straight and start working.  It’s a reminder to all that everyone and anyone can be replaced and usually with someone who is better.

New agents can be molded and trained to do those important tasks in real estate that most seasoned agents do not enjoy doing.  They’re easy to mentor because they are like a sponge ready and willing to absorb information.  They will mirror you to a degree that is laughable and may even create some jealousy within the office,  almost like a teacher’s pet scenario.  I love new blood and the enthusiasm that it naturally creates.  Newbies should be proud of themselves.  They are an entity that is in big demand in my book.





About susanmorrison

After living in Walpole, MA for many years, our family was transferred to the west coast when I was a senior in high school. In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines. I'm the mother of three children and I'm very active within the Franklin, MA community. I am also a cancer survivor and support the American Cancer Society Charities.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
