Real estate is an exciting career!
The purchase or sale of real estate is the single largest transaction that most individuals will make in their lifetime. Real estate is also one of the key factors in determining the state of an economy. As such, a real estate agent is a respected member of the community and is considered an expert on the current housing market due to their numerous activities involving the listing, selling and showing of properties.
Although the sale of real estate is serious business, becoming a real estate agent can be a fun and rewarding profession! You will meet a number of great people who you will work with throughout your career and you will be consistently learning with every transaction. There are so many new systems out there for upcoming real estate agents to help them become a success and there are many seasoned agents with incredible KSA’s (knowledge, skills and abilities) who are willing to teach new agents coming into the business. The best recommendation I can make is that knowledge is power. Be a sponge and learn all that you can. You will best serve your clients and your peers will quickly respect you.
Some of the advantages of becoming a real estate agent are that the hours are flexible so you can start off part-time and even work from home. Selling one property a month can greatly supplement your income and real estate is a profession that you can do for the rest of your life. In fact, the average age of a real estate agent today is 56 years old so there has never been a better time to get into real estate! With all of today’s new technology in the real estate field, the X and Y Generations will fit right in as well!
