I am very interested in getting my real estate license in New York but would only be able to do this part time. Can I get some guidance please?

Asked by patricia32362, Yonkers, NY Thu Apr 24, 2014

I am a single mom and cannot afford to leave my job and would love to get my real estate license to work part time for now. I need to know the process and what is involved such as classes to take and where and what the cost would be. I would very much appreciate any help. Thank you....Patricia

Since I am from your immediate area I am certain my company would sponsor you. The job actually can fit you part time skills as many Buyers are available in the early evening or on weekends. Annette's advice is fabulous but if you need to find out more about local brokerage I think my Company offers training well above other agencies. We have aver 20 Offices in the Hudson Valley so let me know if interested & I will help you to get an interview. Good luck, Allan

This is a great option for you. However, there are a lot of predators lurking that you should avoid.
They way you avoid the predators is do a bit more homework regarding the real estate option.

I suggest you read "7 Things I Wish I Knew Before Getting into Real Estate."

Having completed this personal assessment, you will clearly know what your business opportunity is as well as what you bring to the table that is beneficial to the broker, team or REALTOR you will be teaming up with.

If you don't complete your due diligence, you are destined to join the ranks of the 95% of newbies who never see their second year anniversary.

If, however, your goal is to simply to clerical work to become familiar with the business, you won't need a license to do that, but you still need to present your skill set.

Best of Success,
