Top 7 Books for Real Estate Agents“I’m lazy, that’s why I read lots of business books,” marketing expert Drayton Bird once famously said. I bet you’re “lazy” too. Instead of trying out hundreds of different ways to get your job done, and guessing at what methods might work, you cut to the chase and go read books written by experts about methods that are proven to work. I prefer the word “efficient” to the word lazy, so let’s say we’re all efficient. You’re here because you want to see if there are some must-read real estate books, and I’ve asked around some people who are in the know and they came back to me with this list:
