What does a career in Real Estate offer?
Since Sales Associates are Independent Contractors and their income is commission based, associates have the freedom to control their work hours, put in as much or as little time as they want; and, their income potential is almost unlimited.
The Good - ease of getting into the business, flexible hours, above average income, good working conditions,
abundant opportunities, unlimited resources, training & support, no heavy physical activity, fulfillment
of helping others
The Bad - irregularity of income, irregular hours, lack of fringe benefits, detail work, lack of self discipline, frustration
of events (and people) affecting your transactions & possibly your pay
The Ugly - frustration of working with people who don't always do what they say they will; or, tell you the whole truth
What does the life of a Real Estate Associate look like?
Consulting with clients, lead generation (contacting potential clients), holding open house, previewing properties, showing properties to potential buyers, listing appointments with sellers, writing contract offers Follow up on existing transactions with clients, inspectors, title companies, appraisors, etc..
Administrative duties, such as paperwork, making brochures, writing ads, attending closings, meetings & training events.
