The Best Business Building Books for Real Estate Agents

This week, I sent an email to real estate agents asking them to take a one question survey. The one question asked was:

What was the best business building book you’ve ever read?

We received a wide range of answers. All of the answers we received have been included below. Many agents listed the same book as their favorite. We have tallied up the survey and have narrowed the entire list down to the top 5 books. I’ll post the top 5 books in my blog next week. (You can have my blog posts automatically emailed to you by adding your email address in the box on the top, right hand side of my blog.)

If you are looking for something to read, I would suggest you print this list out and keep it with you. You can simply use this as your buying list. Or you can request many of these books at your local library for free. Another option would be to subscribe to audible.com and download these books in audio format.

Here are the best business books as reported by agents throughout North America. These books are not listed in any particular order:
