A Career in Real Estate

A career in real estate demands diligence, flexibility, and hard work, but it also offers great rewards and growth potential. Most real estate practitioners will say there's nothing quite like the emotional and financial satisfaction that comes from the successful negotiation of a transaction. You are always free to explore related real estate fields to keep your viewpoint fresh and motivation high.

Areas of Specialty 

  • Residential resales are generally the first transaction that comes to mind when people think about real estate. This area is seen as the most "people-oriented" because it involves the sale of existing homes.
  • New home sales are similar to residential resales but the difference is that you are selling an exclusive product for the builder or contractor you represent. 
  • Condominium sales are a different area of residential real estate, where you not only sell a property but you are also selling a lifestyle.
  • Commercial sales and leasing (includes industrial, commercial, and investment) are very different from residential sales. Many commercial transactions involve millions of dollars and can take months to close a deal. 

Key Traits

  • Communication: Provide the best possible service to each seller and buyer. 
  • Flexibility: Being able to accept change and respond to challenges.
  • Professionalism: Always staying patient and professional.
