For many of us, working the nine-to-five shift at a steady job is a comforting and predictable career path. But for those seeking a little more excitement, there’s nothing quite like the fast-paced world of real estate! Not only is freedom a guarantee, but the life of a real estate agent comes complete with fulfillment, intrigue, and a comfortable monetary compensation package. Of course all of us at RE/MAX Plus won’t lie; becoming a licensed real estate agent takes a bit of work. But if you’re willing to put forth a little effort, the rewards of real estate are spectacular!

First Perk: Freedom
One of the biggest perks to the real estate agent lifestyle lies in the power to have complete control over your own work hours. Agents are able to create a schedule that works around his or her personal needs, which can be especially important for parents that need to support their family financially but don’t want to miss out on the important moments in their lives. Clients schedules however won’t typically be as flexible as their agents, which means that real estate agents must accept that there may be times that he or she will have to drop everything and see to the client’s needs. That being said, it’s hard to complain when there’s no time clock to punch.

Second Perk: Simple Education
There are many career paths that lead to success, but most require many years of education and a hefty amount of debt to get there. RE/MAX Plus agents however have the advantage of having full access to training material and industry experts 24/7, and no higher education degrees are required! Whether you decide to learn at your own pace or take advantage of our expert trainers, you can access the education you want, when you want it. There is an exam to become an officially-licensed real estate agent, andĀ given the multitude of RE/MAX Plus resources at your disposal, starting or expanding a real estate agent career is only a matter of time.

Third Perk: Rewards
With no hourly wage or set salary weighing you down, the rewards of real estate are only limited to the time and effort he or she puts into their careers. Monetarily-speaking a real estate agent can enjoy an average commission of $1500 to $2000 after brokerage fees, and that only is after selling a modestly-priced property. A seasoned real estate agent usually works with several clients at a time, resulting in tens of thousands of dollars in a single quarter. But beyond the commission itself, the greatest reward a real estate agent receives is the personal satisfaction of finding his or her client a property that they love, or helping them sell their property at the best possible price. When a real estate agent forges those personal connections by helping resolve one of the most important decisions in a person’s life, the result is incredibly fulfilling.
