Real estate agents rarely have time to breathe, much less read. However, you have to find a way, because failing to continue learning and growing is not an option if you want to succeed in real estate.
Often, the slower winter months are a great time to grab a book or two and focus on you – your business, your personal growth, your mindset, and more.
With that in mind, here are some ideas for books you could read this month before the spring and summer season start to heat up!

The Millionaire Real Estate Agent
I’m going to start right off the bat with one of my favorite books, and one I recommend to agents all the time: The Millionaire Real Estate Agent.
This book is incredible because it combines the reality of real estate with the systems, mindsets, and practices that will get you where you want to go. If you’re focused on making 2017 the year you lift your business to new heights, this book is a must.
Your First Year in Real Estate
Your First Year in Real Estate is a great book if you’re just getting started in real estate, but it’s also a good reminder for veteran Realtors®.

If you’re new to the business, or if you’re stuck in a rut, this could be just the boost you need.
The Miracle Morning for Real Estate Agents
I have a good friend whose life was absolutely transformed by The Miracle Morning. Author Hal Elrod talks about how to actually become and stay a morning person, the morning routine that will start your day on the right foot every time, and how to apply it all to real estate.
If you’re tired of rushing out the door with minutes to spare every day, give yourself the mornings you deserve. Grab The Miracle Morning for Real Estate Agents, take notes, and start practicing. You’ll be amazed how much your days will change.
