A Guide for New Agents in 2024

I will be sharing the Dos and Don’ts of a new real estate agent in 2024

Starting a career in real estate is like embarking on a new adventure. Many new agents ask me for advice on how to begin, especially with the challenges of the Nigerian market in 2024. In this blog, I’ll share some straightforward tips on what you should and shouldn’t do as a rookie real estate agent.

Let’s start with the Dos.

1. Learn as You Go:

Understand the real estate world by staying updated on market trends, rules, and financing options. Attend events or online sessions to keep your skills sharp and your knowledge fresh.

2. Go Digital:

Create a professional website, use social media, and explore digital marketing. Being online not only helps showcase your properties but also makes you look professional and up-to-date.

3. Connect with others:

Network with people in the industry, attend local events, and join professional groups. Building a strong network can open doors to partnerships and new opportunities.

4. Understanding Prices in Inflation:

Be aware of how inflation affects prices in the real estate market. Stay updated on economic changes and adjust your pricing and negotiation strategies accordingly.

5. Make clients happy:

Provide excellent customer service to build a good reputation. Satisfied clients are more likely to recommend your services to others.

The Don’ts:

1. Forget the Rules:

Don’t ignore legal requirements. Stay informed about the rules and make sure your business practices follow them. Ignoring compliance can lead to legal problems.

2. Ignore What’s Happening:

Stay aware of market trends. Ignoring changes in the market can make your job harder. Keep an eye on what’s happening, adapt your strategies, and be ready for changes.

3. Skip Technology:

Technology is your friend. Embrace digital tools and advancements, like virtual tours, to stay competitive and give your clients a modern experience.

4. Rush to Success:

Building a successful career takes time. Don’t rush it. Learn from your experiences, be patient, and keep getting better.

5. Only Think About Sales:

While making sales is important, it’s not everything. Focus on building relationships, making clients happy, and aiming for repeat business. A happy client can bring more business your way.


Starting your career in real estate in 2024 might have its challenges, but with the right mindset and strategies, you can succeed. Follow these simple dos and avoid the don’ts, and you’ll be better prepared to handle the ups and downs of the Nigerian real estate market.
