Who Makes A Great Real Estate Agent

There are many groups that are perfect candidates for considering a career in Real Estate.


Recent grads. Many recent grads enjoy success in their immediate sphere of influence; they often have friends that are interested in purchasing a first home.

First Job. With a low barrier for entry, a career in real estate can be perfect for someone looking for a first job. After getting their license, they could become an assistant while learning the business and then transition into the position full time. It could also be a great way to earn money while considering other avenues, such as continuing education or having it an extra form of income with a later job.

Career Changers. Real Estate can be a great option for those interested in a change. They could get their license while still working and even work both for a short period before making the jump.

Retired. Those who are looking for extra income or even something to do in retirement often look to Real Estate. Often, their social groups could be looking to downsize, so they might have a built-in group of clients. Further, their flexible schedule allows them to continue the good parts of being retired, while their life experiences and former job often gives them a giant head start on the skills that they will need to succeed in real estate.

Employees Who Work Shifts. Those who only work part-time at another job or work off-shift hours might have day times free. Other groups have current jobs that are less than 40 hours. All make good candidates for part-time real estate work.

Parents with Kids in School. When children go off to school, many parents have days free to devote to a part-time real estate position.
