Real estate coaches and the value of ongoing training have never been more crucial. As 2023 winds down, level up with advice from top coaches, training resources and so much more during Inman’s Coaching and Training Month in October.

Pulse is a recurring column where we ask for readers’ takes on varying topics in a weekly survey and report back with our findings.

Last week we asked you to share the best advice you’ve ever gotten from a role model, coach, trainer or mentor. This week, we’re asking about the word advice.

Maybe it was outdated and old-fashioned. Maybe it went against the code of ethics or against your own understanding of fiduciary duty. Maybe it just gave you the ick or felt super-shady. Maybe it simply didn’t work.


Whatever the case, we want to know: What’s the worst advice you ever received? Who gave you that advice? Did you listen and find out the hard way that it was wrong? Did you know upfront that it was bad advice and reject it out of hand? Let us know below:

We’ll compile a list of the top responses and post them on Inman next Tuesday.
