13 Real Estate Quotes to Keep You Inspired

Last Updated: July 13, 2022

“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar

Sometimes you just need a dose of confidence or a boost in your motivation. Today’s real estate environment is hard as real estate values fluctuate wildly. But if being a real estate agent is something that you love, you can’t imagine doing anything else. Still, few things can recharge your passion like inspiring real estate quotes, so we found 10 of them to keep you motivated in your real estate business.

13 Inspirational Real Estate Quotes

Many of these inspirational real estate quotes offer a common-sense look into staying motivated despite the industry’s many highs and lows.

  • “To be successful in real estate, you must always and consistently put your clients’ best interests first. When you do, your personal needs will be realized beyond your greatest expectations.”

    The best agents in the real estate business have a knack for anticipating their clients’ needs and matching those needs with the right piece of real estate. When you put your clients’ interests first, you will succeed as a real estate agent.

  • “Every day you have 1,440 minutes. Minutes are your dollars. Invest your time wisely.”

    Unlike most other jobs, the real estate business really has no set hours. You are working around the clock most days, especially in a busy marketplace, but because you love it, you don’t mind. Still, take time to recharge so that you don’t burn out.

  • “Real estate is an imperishable asset, ever-increasing in value. It is the most solid security that human ingenuity has devised. It is the basis of all security and about the only indestructible security.”

    Even at the height of the housing collapse way back in 2008, people were actively participating in the distressed property market and trying to turn lemons into lemonade. Real estate is an imperishable asset in times of prosperity and times of financial distress. There are always people looking to be part of the real estate business.

  • “The problem with real estate is that it’s local. You have to understand the local market.”

    Possibly the number one piece of advice to remember in real estate marketing. Now more than ever, localizing your market is the key to building a solid real estate business. Your website content as a local expert goes a long way to showing off your local expertise.

  • “I think if people are passionate about something, it could be real estate or biochemistry, and that spark gets turned on in them, everyone’s beautiful in that zone.”

    A person in love has a glow just like an expectant mother does. When you love what you do, it shows in your face, in your smile, in your demeanor. Real estate agents with great success stories tend to have the best attitudes.

  • “Commercial real estate always trails residential, and as residential growth flourishes, shopping centers flourish and service the communities, and jobs come out.”

    As a residential real estate agent, you are an integral part of the success of a city or community. When you bring in families, businesses come in to serve those families. You are a crucial part of the circle of life. When people buy land, they are buying a part of the future. Or as Fiona Sigalla put it, “real estate investing is certainly a vote of confidence on future activity.

  • “You must learn that selling is not selling; it is providing and the key to providing is knowing in advance what to provide.”

    Again, meeting your client’s needs will go a long way to securing your success in the real estate business and will help you sell more houses. No agent shows houses the same way and the same house can be shown very differently, so use your knowledge of the buyer to make the best pitch possible.

  • “Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”

    Money can’t buy you love or happiness. Making a lot of money is not the definition of success. You can have a billion dollars in your bank account and be miserable. Do what you love and happiness is sure to follow. Inevitably, that will come with financial success, too!

  • “In real estate, you make 10% of your money because you’re a genius and 90% because you catch a great wave.”

    Part of being the best real estate agent is knowing your market. Still, having a little bit of luck doesn’t hurt either. Accessing the best real estate marketing can be a huge part of riding that wave! Keeping up with innovative business models will help you make the most of market conditions.

  • “Real estate is the best investment in the world because it is the only thing they’re not making anymore.”

    The fact that real estate can be the safest investment may help you convince people to buy land or buy real estate that is already developed.

  • “In the real estate business you learn more about people, and you learn more about community issues, you learn more about life, you learn more about the impact of government, probably than any other profession that I know of.”

    When the going gets rough, it’s easy for a real estate agent to lose their drive. But as good motivation quotes like this remind us, you don’t just sell houses; being an agent gives you a first-hand look at the human experience. When your motivation dims, remind yourself of this invaluable perk.

  • “I will forever believe that buying a home is a great investment. Why? Because you can’t live in a stock certificate. You can’t live in a mutual fund.”

    A good real estate quote embodies a simple truth. And leave it to Oprah to lay down some incontestable facts. As a real estate agent, point out the indestructible security that owning a home offers and clients will be that much more willing to buy real estate.

  • “Ninety percent of all millionaires become so through owning real estate. More money has been made in real estate than in all industrial investments combined. The wise young [person] or wage earner of today invests [their] money in real estate.”

    Here’s an idea that will surely inspire you: you’re not just helping people acquire properties, you’re helping them achieve financial affluence, too. Perhaps Andrew Carnegie, a titan of American entrepreneurship, put it best with the quote above. This is especially true of a real estate investor who purchases multi-family properties like apartments and condos. Landlords grow rich because their asset generates continuous income in the form of rent, which often increases each year.
