Is Real Estate Right for You?

A career in real estate can be exciting and very rewarding both personally and financially. Real estate agents are experts in the process of buying and selling homes, and their interests extend beyond the transactions themselves into the enjoyment that comes from working with people, helping families, and assisting communities to grow and prosper.

When considering a real estate career, ask yourself the following questions:


  1. Do I have a good sphere of influence and visibility in the community?
  2. Do I possess good communications skills? Am I willing to contact people daily to discuss real estate?
  3. Do I build rapport with strangers quickly and easily?
  4. Do other people consider me honest and trustworthy?
  5. Am I willing to invest time and effort now to gain income later?
  6. Am I motivated to succeed—whatever it takes? Am I looking for a long-term career?
