The real estate business takes a lot of time, effort and hard work if you want to be successful. Half the real estate agents in business in my area sold no homes last year! I guess they were part time, but I'm sure many were full time who had no direction or training.

The advise offered by Donald is valid. If you have in mind a niche, such as your primary business will involve acquiring and liquidating real estate, that could be an exception.
Success in real estate is an 'all-in' commitment. Add to that the knowledge and skill of lead generation, negotiation and transaction management and you have the privilege of working 85 hours a week! Ah, but you don't have a boss...some say that's worth it!
We have a terrific group and are active in residential, commercial, business brokerage and property management. Feel free to contact us to discuss.
