Be aware that it’s one of the most challenging businesses you could ever possibly get into. There is so much to learn about sales, marketing, construction, law, finance and a lot more. In addition, you’ve got to find your own clients who will trust you with the most expensive transaction of their lives while you learn the business. This is why only 15% of new agents survive their first three years in the business making an average of less than $40,000 a year.
If you want to be one of rare agents who is successful find a broker who will give you the best training and support possible. Also, make sure you have a real estate coach.
