Pulse is a recurring column where we ask for readers’ takes on varying topics in a weekly survey and report back with our findings.
If you’ve been paying attention to the headlines lately (and we’re sure you are), you’ll notice that there’s a subtle shift happening in the market across the country. Things are looking like they’re finally slowing down.

So, what do new agents need to know and prepare for in a shifting market? What’s the best piece of advice you can offer them right now?
We’ll compile a list of the top responses and post them on Inman next Tuesday.
