Honestly, I was in sales for 15 years.
Real Estate is NOT a sales position. You are a consultant, educator, advisor, and taxi cab driver!
It's a frustrating and rewarding "Career" all in one. You SELL yourself first and then guide your client's to either "sell" or "buy" properties.
The great attribute is that you're obviously good with people. To have good "people skills" is definitely a plus! What you have going for you is being you and working extremely hard for your client's.
Starting any career is "hard" but if you want it bad enough and will work hard enough, you will succeed. You won't know if it'll work unless you go for it!
