Four Questions from a Future Real Estate Agent

1) What education I need to become a real estate agent?

The general opinion is that high school. Nobody ever went to university to become a realtor. Most realtors aren't that bright, either. But sales skills are very necessary for a good real estate agent, so take care to attend some courses in that profile.

2) What's the average starting salary, and what's the average salary of an experienced agent?

There is no general rule, as real estate agent's income is generate by commission. Some people say that 90% of the commissions are earned by 10% of the people.

3) What type of experience will be required before I have a chance at moving up after I enter the real estate field? Is there an average guess you can take? I understand that a lot of this work depends on the motivation and effort put in by the individual.

Anyone with a car, a clean suit, and an overall pleasant manner and appearance can be an agent. Nothing much else is required.

4) Can I work as a real estate agent part-time?

Yes, you can if you have not great expectations. There are already way too many agents chasing a limited amount of dollars. You'll never have an evening or weekend to yourself. It's a great occupation for someone who has no plans of ever having a family and for those who worship money and don't care what society thinks of money-worshippers.
