Five Reasons to Start A Real Estate Career

     If I asked you what you like about your job the most, how long would you have to think about your answer?  Most Realtors don't have to think too long.

     Freedom is a word that you hear a lot. Freedom to set your own schedule.  Freedom to pursue your own course that you think is appropriate .  In a real estate career, no one tells you what to do.  If you want to prospect for residential prospects, go for it.  If you want to look for commercial prospects, you don't need any one's permission.  If you want to wear a suit or jeans, it is up to you. Whatever works.  Freedom from a boss telling you when to show up and when to eat lunch is a big reason people continue a career in real estate.  This is a wonderful thing about real estate.

     Money is another reason people start a career in real estate.  You can make a very good living selling real estate.  The harder you work, the more money you make.  You have the freedom to work more if you need more money.  In many jobs, if you need more money, there is no opportunity to make more.  You have to wait until your boss decides you deserve a raise in pay.  In real estate, it is all commission.  If you want to work harder and smarter, you get more money.

     Education is another perk of a real estate career.  It is amazing how much you learn about real estate, houses, financing.  You also learn about people.  I joke with my students at Climer School of Real Estate that after twenty years of selling real estate, you will be a expert on human behavior.  It is no joke.  It is the truth.  You can't help but learn about people.  You learn how to read people.  You learn how to deal with people.  You learn how to be more effective with people.  You learn persuasion skills.  You learn this stuff because learning it flows straight into your pocketbook.  The more you know, the more you earn.  That is a great thing that attracts good people to a real estate career.

     I don't think many people get into real estate to assuage boredom.  If you are bored at your current job, try selling real estate.  It is never boring.  You get a few Realtors together.  They all have a passel of stories about the people with whom they deal daily.  Some stories are sad.  Some stories are funny.  Some stories are exciting.  They are never boring.  These stories are just part of real estate.  Real estate is a lot of things but it is never boring. 

      Another cool thing about selling real estate is it gets easier and easier.  The first year might be hard.  The second year will be easier.  The third year will not only be easier, it will be more lucrative.  By the fifth year, you will wonder why everyone doesn't sell real estate.  Things that used to be a huge problem are now easy for you to handle.  It gets easier every year, every day. 

     Start a new career in real estate.  In five years, your only regret will be that you did not do it sooner.  If Climer School of Real Estate can help you, call Kathy at 407 822 3926 or
