Los Angeles, California (PressExposure) May 12, 2009 -- Who Becomes a Real Estate Agent?
A real estate career can be a rewarding choice for anyone, with almost any level of professional or educational achievement. What you have done or learned prior to your real estate career can contribute to your success as an agent, but the common elements in most successful real estate careers are a sincere focus on helping customers, a strong work ethic, and common-sense intelligence.
Your Own Path to Success
Real estate agents have a variety of backgrounds and beginning skill sets. Since Real Estate is primarily a service and relationship business, relatively few come from careers where "hard selling" is a part of the job. Those that enter the industry from "sales" positions often find it to be more fulfilling, both in terms of personal satisfaction and earnings.
Real estate agents are often professional business men and women who have decided to "work for themselves". Many are recent graduates from school, just starting their careers. Others are active semi-retired individuals, with years of experience and much wisdom to offer. Still others are energetic "part time" agents that dedicate their efforts to a tighter circle of customers.
Why Choose a Real Estate Career?
If you ask an agent why they chose to make their career in real estate, you'll find a number of answers. Real Estate can certainly offer a high earning potential. The longer you stay in the business, the greater that potential becomes, through widening your circle of current and past customers, all of whom can refer new customers to you.
Many love the "helping people" aspect, while others want to exercise their independent nature and be their own boss. Most Crestico Real Estate Agents are independent contractors, and are thus able to set their own work schedules and build their business in the way that they want, while relying upon Crestico Real Estate for professional marketing and career assistance.
From being your own boss to growing a lifelong business, there are many reasons to choose a real estate career. We at Crestico Realty can provide you the necessary tools to serve your clients successfully.
