If real estate was easy, everyone would do it. It’s not always easy. In fact, to be successful is a lot of hard work. But if you talk to the most successful people in the business, they didn’t get into real estate just to make money. They got into it and became successful because they love it. And there is a lot to love. Here are our top ten reasons, but let us know if we missed any!

  1. You get to change people’s lives. A home is a lot more than just walls and a roof. It’s where people come together, where they make room for new family member, where they celebrate milestones, and where they make memories that will last a lifetime. As a real estate professional, you are part of a journey with your client to find a home that will fit their needs or sell a home so they can move on to their next adventure.
  2. You get to check out some pretty sweet properties. From broker’s opens to open houses, you have the chance to check out some of the most amazing properties in the area. Not only does it make you knowledgeable about the area inventory, but it can also be pretty cool.
  3. You can work from home, the office or the road. Since you are your own boss, it’s up to you to decide how you will run your business. Many times that means meeting clients in their home or a coffee shop.
  4. You can forge lasting relationships. As a real estate professional, you’ll spend time with your clients and often times those clients become friends.
  5. There is a sense of accomplishment. “It’s not always about the immediate gratification.” Andrea Geller of the Coldwell Banker Gold Coast office says that her greatest satisfaction comes months or years later, when a former client tells her how happy they are living in their home.
  6. You can set your schedule around your priorities. In real estate, you could work all day every day or set a schedule around your life, school or other responsibilities. It is up to you.
  7. You get to party. Whether it’s an event for local charities, networking opportunities or awards – there are always tons of celebrations going on when you’re in real estate.
  8. You’re rarely (or never) bored. Ask any agent, you’ll probably find out that there is rarely a dull moment and no two deals are the same. Each home purchase or sale has its own unique rewards and challenges.
  9. You’re in business for yourself — not by yourself. You are an entrepreneur, but you have the tools, support, managers and mentorship available through your brokerage to become a success. At Coldwell Banker, we provide some of the best tools in the business to make your job easier and help your business grow.
  10. You make your own success. You are the master of your own destiny. If you prospect, market and push yourself — the sky is the limit for your income and success. It’s hard work to be successful in any industry. Real estate is no exception.
