New and struggling real estate agents, as well as real estate investors, now have a resource for unbiased, no sales pitches, success education in Jim Kimmons' new book, the Real Estate Agent's Desk Reference. In this compilation of articles written as a freelance contributor to About.com, Jim has updated and added new content to make this 576 letter size page book a valuable resource.

There are hundreds of articles in 8 book sections:

1. Real Estate Basics
2. New Agent Fast Start Tutorials
3. Serving Buyers and Sellers
4. Business Management
5. Marketing Your Real Estate Business
6. Real Estate Transaction Management
7. Technology for Real Estate
8. Real Estate Investing

Many of these articles are step-by-step tutorials in every aspect of starting a new real estate business as an independent contractor. Marketing in today's high-tech online world is covered extensively. One of the most valuable assets in this book is Jim's focus on free or very inexpensive solutions for business marketing and management.

From low cost real estate websites to no cost business management and marketing tools, all are explained in detail. So much of the instructional material on the Web for real estate agents is on websites with a product or service for sale. There is nothing wrong with this, but the high failure rate in the first two years for real estate agents points to a need for unbiased complimentary or low cost instruction, tools and resources.

The new agent on a tight budget can set up their business using these software and online solutions without buying the newest expensive bells & whistles. Some of the article titles include "The Dirt Cheap Real Estate Business Success Kit (2 parts)," "Low Cost Bookkeeping for Real Estate Agents" and "World Class Business Management & Marketing for 81 Cents/Day."

Book purchasers find the SUPPORT RESOURCES an added value from the book, though they aren't in print. Purchasers receive complimentary proprietary spreadsheets and resources via email including:

-Extensive valuation and investment calculation spreadsheets.
-Spreadsheets for agents to set up, manage, budget and market their business.

-More resources noted throughout the book.

As a ghost writer for several of the popular real estate investment and flipping gurus on TV, Jim has written multiple real estate investing books. A book within a book, the Real Estate Investing section has tons of basic information to get a new investor started right without hype. The real estate agent who wants to work with investors will find this section invaluable in helping them to build credibility when working with investors.
