Before embarking on real estate mentoring, establish clear agreements and understanding. Discuss the frequency of meetings, the format of coaching sessions, and the real estate investing resources you'll have access.

Clear agreements from the outset ensure everyone is on the same page, laying the groundwork for a successful mentoring and coaching relationship.
