Real estate takes hard work and ambition like many other fields; however, the benefits can be very rewarding:
- Unlimited earning potential
- Play a meaningful role in people’s lives
- Networking and socializing are part of the job
- Your income is not limited by an hourly wage
- Make the decisions in your own career
- Control your future/destiny
- Not strapped to a desk/stuck in a cubicle
- Exciting work pace/each day is different
Real estate agents get to wear many hats: from showings and open houses, to marketing their listings, to developing new business, to negotiating contracts and filing paperwork—each day is different.
The beauty of working on straight commission is that you will never be limited to an hourly wage as an agent; however, this means that if you don’t sell, you don’t draw a paycheck either. The work itself can also be extremely fulfilling as real estate agents play such a personal role in people's lives helping them find the perfect residences.
