The Best and Worst Part of Having a Career in Real Estate

06 Nov

I have often been asked what the best and worst part of a career in real estate is.  There are so many people who are thinking of a career in this field.  I thought it would be great to give a general breakdown of my personal feelings about what is good and bad about a career in this field.  Hopefully it will shed some light on if a career in real estate is right for you.

Best part of being a realtor:

1.  Working with people.  Helping them to find that perfect home.

2.  Setting my own schedule.

3.  Being in charge of how successful I become.

4.  Endless possibilities in the amount of money I can make.

5.  Having a family life.

6.  Being able to network by doing the things I love.

7.  I meet some great people.

Worst part of being a realtor:

1.  Deals that go bad because of situations I can’t control.

2.  Seeing a client not end up with the home they fell in love with.

3.  The climb to make a decent living.

4.  Keeping records of expenses, mileage etc…

5.  Hearing stories of people losing homes or having trouble being approved for one.

Really that is all I could come up with.  ultimately, I love my career.  I wake up each day excited to work.  I feel so lucky to have found a career that makes me feel so good.

I hope that this article puts some of the ups and downs of being a realtor in better perspective if you are trying to decide if real estate is the right career for you.
