Focus on detail and you’ll find that getting creative with your listings and taking the best photographs will come naturally. You also want to sharpen up on your organization skills, which will allow you to be more productive and prompter when communicating with your clients.

Do not hesitate to speak up and show your ambition with a bit of aggression. This shows your customer that you’ll work hard to get what they want.
