A career in real estate is one of the most rewarding experiences. It is not only lucrative, it is also gratifying to the soul. There is a joy in helping someone to get their dream home where they will spend the rest of their life raising a family and happy memories. The family will always remember the real estate agent who helped them get their dream home. For commercial properties it is great to know that the business is thriving and growing from the property you helped them acquire.
However, this industry and field is not for everyone. You need to be patient. You need to save every penny you make. You will never know when the next deal will come or even if you will get paid the full amount. The turnaround from beginning to end goes in months rather than days.
You need to be patient, service minded and goal oriented.
