The Profession of Being a Real Estate Agent

The Rewards

Enjoy the freedom to be your own boss. You can achieve financial independence and have a positive impact on your clients, your family and your own community. Your career as a real estate professional is what you make of it. You have the freedom to balance your hard work and determination with your personal goals to bring a balance back to your life. This career offers the chance for success personally, professionally and financially.

The Challenges

As an independent contractor, you will have a flexible schedule to plan your own time with your family. A full-time REALTOR® can expect to work 40+ hours a week, especially while building a client base. Prepare your family and gain their support during this transition.
Though becoming an agent is a relatively small investment to get started, you will need to rely on a reserve of about 4-6 months of income until you start earning commissions on a regular basis. In addition, health care and other common employee benefits are not provided. The opportunity to earn a much higher income should offset these challenges.
