    Oh and never forget that your buyer is your next seller and therefore your next potential customer. So although the seller pays you must never forget you are in effect working for both parties to achieve a win-win. If your deals are win-lose over time you will lose. Repeat business is what you want, that makes life much easier once you survive the first few years in the business.

    There is a lot of good advice in this thread.
    A couple of points- Most of your competition is part time and usually not very good.
    Referrals are the lifeblood of the business and you not only want the experience of working with you to be good for the client but you need to follow up. Set up a good database and drop them a postcard on the anniversary of their buying the house, or a birthday-something to remind them you're still in business.
    Remind yourself that you're a small business OWNER and you need to treat this like a business. This means you have to shell out some money for advertising. Your business cards should be professional and you should dress the part.
    Put together a Buyer's Guide and a Sellers Guide so you always have something to leave a potential client.
    When working with a client remember OLDCAR.
    You owe your client-
    Obedience
    Loyalty
    Disclosure
    Confidentiality
    Accountability
    Reasonable Care
