    Advice to Management

    I have no mentor, I'm not on a team, and if U asked me what I got out of a month of going to KW classes 5 days a week for a month, I'd say "call somebody, call, call, call,call somebody!" Read ur script! "Confidence trumps knowledge!" But the person I'm calling doesn't know their lines! And any questions they have I don't have the knowledge to answer? You need at least a small bit of knowledge before U start calling people! "Knowledge" may "trump confidence" BUT THE LACK OF ANY WILL CERTAINLY KILL IT! I've had several people tell me "you don't know enough to be calling me to sell my house!" But I say "I have the knowledge of 200 agents where I work," And they say exactly what I would say. "You can't answer any of my questions so I'm going to find a more experienced agent, and can U please stop calling me!" Because by this point I've hounded these people to death! Because we are told to "call till they ask U to stop calling." I have no idea how to do a CMA, no idea how to do anything other than call, call, call, and run through a script.
    I think it would be good for new agents to ride along with seasoned agents and see how it's done! I think there should be more emphasis placed on learning the paperwork, the computer programs, and give the agent a little something to feel confident about other than just "call, call someone, call, call! Because I have lost all my potential leads due to lack of any knowledge about what I can do for them.
