Absolutely great advice from Derek: "Do NOT get into Real Estate because you, "love homes," and/or you, "are good with people..." "
Fine. You love homes. And you get a call from someone and you look at their home. Cat urine odors in the carpets. Dusty furniture. A moldly smell in the basement. Does this mean you don't want to be a Realtor any more?
Or you're showing homes to a client. You've identified half a dozen that seem to meet all their requirements, and you're really pleased. You show the houses, and your clients can't stand any of them. Or they focus on one that you really don't like.
Or you want to list a home, but it's cluttered and dirty. You recommend that the owner have it staged, to make it look nice and more attractive. The owner refuses.
These are common, everyday occurrences. Sometimes the house is just plain unappealing, and you do the best you can. Sometimes the house has potential, but the sellers can't understand. Loving houses just isn't enough.
Now, there are lots of great things about real estate. I'm not trying to discourage you at all. You just have to focus on the real good points and bad points.
Hope that helps.
