Communication is one of most underrated skills in real estate.  Not only is it underrated, it’s also underutilized.  As a newcomer to the industry, it’s amazing how quickly I’ve noticed you can gain the trust of your clients through consistent and effective communication.  If you can build trust from the beginning with your clients, it can make the rest of the process run a lot more smoothly.  It can also give you more time to dedicate in selling their home or trying to find their next one by simply giving them the peace of mind that you are out there working.  Furthermore, it says a lot to the clients when they know you will answer your phone and emails no matter the time of day.  On the flip side, having ineffective communication could very quickly cost you a sale.  
Communication starts with listening and more specifically, active listening.  In real estate it’s very important to not only listen to what your client is saying but also to engage what they are trying to tell you.  By affirming what they are asking, you can take some of their worries away while also gaining valuable knowledge about your client. Above all, your clients must have the confidence and trust in you as a real estate agent.  By having an effective communication channel and engaging them actively through listening, you can establish yourself as a knowledgeable agent that can get the job done and hopefully bring you future referrals.
