Why Choose a Career in Real Estate

A career in real estate is exciting! It gives you flexibility, unlimited earning potential, and true independence. You can help grow and transform your community by connecting people to the best places to live or do business. We want to help you get started creating a satisfying career built around your personality and innate talent!

Why Choose a Career in Real Estate?


You control your career path and income level by setting your own goals and schedule. YOU are your own boss, continually interacting with people, helping families find their dream home, and providing valuable services to your community.


You decide how many hours you can devote to developing your career. Working with focus and direction can make you more money in less time.

Unlimited Earning Potential

Agents generally earn a commission of 1.5% to 3% of the sale price of a property. Agents frequently assist in both the sale of the current home and the purchase of a new home for each client, doubling the potential commission.

For example, if an agent sold a couple’s $300,000 home, the agent would typically earn at least $4,500 on that sale. If that couple then purchased another property for their growing family for $370,000, the agent would earn another $5,550. That’s over $10,000 in commission from just one client. An agent closing one deal like that each month would earn over $120,000 per year!

Who should choose a career in real estate?

  • Moms or dads looking for flexible, full-time or part-time work they could do from home
  • Teachers with summers off
  • Retirees looking to stay connected
  • Small business owners (great cross marketing potential!)
  • Military families
  • Aspiring $100K+ earners
  • Anyone who wants independence, flexibility & unlimited earning potential
