So You Want To Be A Real Estate Agent

So You Want To Be A Real Estate Agent

Are you available on weekends, evenings, and holidays?  Do you have a reliable vehicle, cell phone, and computer?  If you answered yes, you may keep reading!  Our local real estate market has just experienced a robust Spring market up more than 20% (RBI Stats) from 2015.  With other industries still struggling and sluggish overall,  interest in a real estate career is on the rise.  Those REALTORS who bailed out during the worst real estate market in history (2008-2012), have begun to reactivate licenses, brush up on new legislation and best practices to once again enter the world of real estate.  It really is a wonderful area of expertise!  You decide how much you will earn as most models are commission based, but more importantly you brand yourself as to what kind of agent you will be:  Full-Time, Part-Time, Full-Service, Limited Service, Buyer Agent, Listing Agent, Property Manager, Commercial Agent, Investor Agent, First Time Home Buyer Agent....and any combination thereof.  If you enjoy people and puzzles, this may be the perfect position for you.  Talk to a few different agents with different levels of experience and career paths and seek out knowledge on brands. The "model" that you choose can make all the difference in achieving a successful start in Real Estate and life long career.  No two transactions are alike and that is what keeps the business fresh and exciting!
