One of my most favorite ways to get inspiration for my real estate marketing business is to read books. And not just any books. Books that I can learn from. Get life-changing advice. And grow from other’s experiences.

I’m SO thankful that people I admire have opened up to share their stories. Because I get inspired to do things that I never thought I would do. And who knows, maybe one day I’ll follow in their footsteps!

But for now, I’ve committed to read even more books this year with one result in mind:


And not just growth for my business (I really do want that), but also personal growth. Because investing in myself AND my professional development are two things I’m SUPER passionate about.

Really though, who doesn’t love cuddling up on a weekend with a good book and cup of coffee?!

If this is your love language, you’re going to want to check out this list of top books every real estate agent should read.

Some are motivational. Others are about self-confidence.

As a Realtor®, you need to be both book-smart and street-smart. So I encourage you to pick one (or 12) of these books to read on your next weekend off.

I promise, you’ll be inspired just as much as I am!
