Starting a Career in Real Estate

A career in real estate provides flexibility and freedom to set your own pace. You are your own boss. Income directly reflects your efforts, with no limits on what astute, hard-working people can earn. Successful Realtors are goal-oriented, persevering, self-motivated, ambitious and people-oriented. The rewards of a real estate career are a potential for high earnings, status in the community, autonomy, time freedom, helping people, intellectual challenge and the satisfaction from those accomplishments. After they've gained more experience some Realtors will take the next step and become licensed brokers. Brokers can manage offices, own their own businesses, and employ other salespeople.
