So You Want Be A Real EstateAgentSo You Want To Be A Real Estate Agent

Everyone knows it’s easy money and that the market is hot- hot -hot in most areas…. right????   Well, not really!  Yes, it’s hot and yes you can make good money but no it’s not easy money at all!

Real Estate sales suffers from a misleading reputation and many new agents decide to become a real estate agent with little pre-planning, with no goals and no clear understanding what the business actually entails. So you want to be a real estate agent??? If so, do yourself a big favor and investigate before you jump in!

There are cost$ involved, time spent without direct compensation and building your business won’t happen over night. Also, and most importantly not every one or every personality is suited for the business.  Be honest….  Are you a self motivating person, do you give up easily, are your feelings easily hurt, do you have at least 6 months of sustainable funds, do you have a large sphere of influence????   There are a lot of questions you should be asking and many things to think about before you jump in.
