But you should also know some negatives about this new career you are contemplating:
We point these negatives out not to dissuade you from choosing a real estate career, but to paint an honest picture of the ups and downs of this profession. On the one hand, a significant percentage of newly-licensed real estate agents sell nothing and drop out of the business in a year or so. But those are generally the individuals who made a poor choice of broker with whom to affiliate—or who simply thought they did not need to follow the success plan their broker offered in their training program. The truth is, agents with the right personality, temperament, people-skills, discipline, and marketing ability have joined this profession without even a college degree and are consistently making hundreds of thousands of dollars every year.
So everything you’ve just read comes down to one thing: It is up to YOU as to whether or not you become a real estate superstar!
