Have an online presence
Lets face it, there are a lot of real estate companies in Ghana that are professional. To stand out, it is very pertinent to have an online presence as an agent if you wish to be noticed by people all over the globe.
If your aim is to reach people all over the world and not just the Ghanaian populace, then you should have a website and be active on social media. Ensure you update these sites regularly with the most current information about the property you have for sale.
Creating a website is quite simple but it involves some level of skill and money but there are online markets solely dedicated to the marketing and sale of properties like Meqasa, which you can take advantage of as an agent.

In order to do this, you need a smartphone which will allow you to get on the internet no matter the location or the time of the day. Responding to emails promptly is a way of showing prospective clients how serious you about getting your property off the market.
