Look here, a good resume in any field is critical, and for real estate agents this is no different. In fact, with how tough the competition is in the real estate industry, having a job-winning resume is more critical than ever.

In this article, I’ll cover 5 of the most important tips necessary towards writing an awesome real estate agent that will maximize your career opportunities and land you a real estate job worth your while.

Get help from resume writing services

If you don’t feel confident in your writing skills. Don’t force yourself to write your own resume and do a poor job. Instead, go with many of the many resume writing services you can find online. These services employ professional resume writers who usually have experience in human resources or recruiting. They’ll be able to work with you to create a high-quality resume that you might otherwise have not be able to have if you had written it yourself.

Emphasize your skills and capabilities

Real estate agents all have their unique set of strengths and methodologies towards getting the job done. Some try to focus more on building rapport with their clients while others gather up research and use facts to sway everyone. Whatever method you like to use should be highlighted on your resume and echoed in the tone of the resume.

Have another real estate agent look at it

It’s important to have other people look at your resume and critique it. In fact, that’s perhaps the number one most effective way of catching your mistakes and improving upon your resume. While it’s good to get advice from all sorts of people, ideally, you’ll have another real estate agent look through your resume and give their expert opinions on it.

Remember, as the one that wrote your own resume, it’s hard to catch your mistakes – after all if it were so easy you wouldn’t have made them to begin with.

Include a professional summary

The career path and goal of a real estate agent is a bit more complex compared to other career paths. With that being the case, it could be wise to include a professional summary on your resume to clear up what your goals are for your given situation. Remember to stay on point and focus on clearly and concisely summarizing what you have done and what you hope to do in the future.

Use strong action verbs

Be sure to start each of your bullet points with a strong action verb. Avoid using “weak” action verbs such as “helped” or “assisted.” That just hurts your image and makes it seem like you did not play an integral part in your company’s success. Instead, use verbs like “managed” or “initiated.” These action verbs make you out to be a leader and not a follower.
