Hi Mbarge: You have received a range of answers to your question! As some have noted, getting a real estate business going can take a lot of effort. But there are options for part timers. If you want to always be a part time agent, then you will need to find a company that accepts part timers. There are a number. However, if your goal is to eventually make a full-time career out of real estate, then you might want to find a successful agent who seeks a part-time assistant. It can be hard to learn the ropes on your own when you have limited time to devote. But you will learn a lot in a relatively short period by working with an experienced agent.
