Is it a REALTORS® life for you? Changing careers is a big step, and you may be considering choosing the path of a REALTOR®, but perhaps you are unsure if it’s a good fit. Here are some key characteristics of being an Epic REALTOR® to think about.
Are you a people person?
Working as a REALTOR® involves working with people practically every day, and sometimes in large settings, such as open houses. If you are someone who prefers to work alone, a REALTORS®’ life may not be the perfect fit. However, if you have a knack for working with others and making them feel at home, both literally and figuratively, then a life as a REALTOR® may be perfect for you.
Do you like working your own hours?
REALTORS® don’t always work regular hours, but the hours they do work are up to them and their clients. They also spend a lot of time out of the office, visiting with clients and looking at homes. If you enjoy the flexibility of creating your own schedule and working in different locations on a regular basis, then you’re a perfect fit for a REALTOR®.
Are you self-motivated?
Working for yourself can be difficult, but it can also be rewarding. Are you up to the challenge and privilege of being your own boss? Are you ready to be a one-person show? Being a REALTOR® involves controlling all aspects of the job – marketing, economics and administration. Working for yourself involves more than just doing the job; you control all the other parts of running a business as well. If you have the drive, smart decision-making skills and a desire to control your own career’s future, life as a REALTOR® sounds like your cup of tea.
Are you always learning?
Being a REALTOR® means dealing in the ever-changing real-estate market. Becoming a REALTOR® doesn’t just require great interpersonal skills; it involves a lot of law and business knowledge. And regulations, technology, best practices and market indicators are constantly changing. If you enjoy working in an ever-changing environment and get a rush from constantly adapting to new circumstances, then this industry, and the life of REALTOR®, would be a great option for you.
