I’m a real estate agent in Australia looking to break into the New York City market–any advice?

Q: I’m from Australia and have just started out in real estate. My main goal is to be in NYC, and to break into the real estate market there hopefully by December/January. Any advice? Do I need more than 6 months’ experience to be noticed in New York?

The experience that you gain on your home turf should be a solid foundation from which to launch your career in real estate in New York, but you will have to do a lot of research to learn as much as possible about this city, its real estate and the intricacies of the process to best serve your clients.
