It IS a good life!
If i was currently employed, i would start now but only part time while keeping my job. If i was not currently employed I would jump into a real estate career full speed ahead.
I think the best thing for anyone considering a career in real estate to do is to sit down with a Realtor they trust (or a couple Realtors if they don't know any) and that has been in the business for a while. Find out the good, the bad, and the ugly and see if it's a fit.
You've been in the business for over three years! Do you think 'Now is a great time to get into the real estate business and start selling?"
Did the agents your consulted give you the guidance you needed?
Did you part time or jump into the deep end?
Did they paint a rosy or gloomy picture for you?
What would you tell a 'starry eyed' mug-womp today?
