Your Questions About Real Estate Agent

Richard asks…

How can I become a real estate agent?

I am 26, live in NJ and have a 1 year old son. I’m currently working full time and am in need of a change. I’ve always been interested in real estate. Can someone please inform me on how to become a real estate agent? I am also looking for soem stories from beginner agents. Are the first couple of years rough? How fast did you get into the swing of things? Was it hard to get hired? Any information to help me make my decision will be beneficial. My husband is supportive of my goals, but I have limited time due to my current career and my son. I also should say that I don’t have a 4 year degree. I have some college under my belt. I ended up landing a good job with a great company almost 7 years ago and now work in marketing. Thank you!

Your Questions About Real Estate Agent

Philadelphia Real Estate answers:

The best – and least expensive – way to become a real estate agent is to attend your local or community college. They usually have the real estate licensing class that is required. In my state it is required before you can take the state exam; I’m not sure about yours. Most states do have some educational requirements though.

Take the class, study hard and take the state exam. Then sign on with a real estate office.

Real estate is an expensive job to start out in. You have to pay MLS fees, you have to provide adequate car insurance for taking customers to homes you want to show them, you have to pay fees – sometimes – to the office just to ‘rent’ desk space, you have to buy your own stationery, business cards, etc. And then you have to spend a lot on postal services so you can “farm:” that means sending out solicitations for business. It’s expensive. You need about 6 months’ living expenses before you get your first commission check.

Think real hard about it before you get involved. Ask questions.
