A career in real estate can be a challenging and financially rewarding pursuit provided one has the "right stuff." The right stuff meaning a salesperson with the knowledge, determination and dedication, that differentiates the successful from the unsuccessful. The successful realty agent earns a substantial income during the good times and does much better than just surviving during a market downturn.
The agents have it right though, by allowing yourself to see real estate as a job rather than a dream, you will find that the journey is not nearly as daunting when you reach the end. There is really nothing glamorous about becoming a real estate agent, you start out in the trenches and work your way up just as you would in any other position, what is glamorous is the potential for making a great income.
