You will find that real estate can be a rewarding career but certainly not an easy one. You are young and your best bet is to find a firm that will prepare you with the best training. It looks like you are considering a move from Miami to somewhere in the Palm Beach County area. Most brokerages are always looking to increase the number of agents they have as the more they have the better the odds of getting ones that will sell and make the brokerage money. Most will give you the same pitch of great training, competitive commission splits, the latest technology and great staff to help you succeed.

Starting out I would first decide where you want to live and set out visiting real estate brokerages in that geographic location. Start visiting them and ask if they have any successful agents looking for a new assistant ready to rock the real estate world. See where you get the best vibe and find an agent who is doing a ton of business, You can help them grow their business while getting very useful training to give you the foundation to make it on your own one day. Make sure their brokerage has lots of training opportunities and make sure the agent you team with will encourage and support you in attending the right training sessions. One great way to find out how much training a from does is to ask for a copy of their training scheduled for that month.

Lots of great firms and great brokers. Interview them and find the one where you feel you can make a difference and they will be there to help you success.

Best of luck and welcome to the world of real estate.....

In addition ot the answers you have received, I am in the Orlando market and some condo conversions are actually taking back condos from the owners and going back to apartments. You would be better off investing in single family properties. Best of luck to you. ... more
