A career in real estate provides flexibility and freedom to set your own schedule. In addition, it is a highly rewarding career choice. Assisting home buyers and sellers achieve their goals is one of the greatest aspects of a career in real estate.
There is an investment of time, money, and effort that is required in order to be successful in real estate. Your income directly reflects the amount of effort you put into your business. Being self-employed takes discipline and time management.
Successful people in real estate often have some of these qualities:
- Problem solver
- Goal oriented
- Self motivated
- Enjoy helping people
- Early adopters of technology
- Willing to use systems
- Great communication skills
Entry into real estate takes preparation. The first step is completing the 60 hour pre-licensing course. If you prefer online learning, I recommend ProSchools. The advantages of online learning is flexibility, your ability to set your own pace, distraction free learning (content is based only on exam information), no need for travel, and it can be completed from the comfort of your own home.

There are two portions to the exam, the National section and State section. They are scored independently, meaning if you pass one and not the other, you only need to re-take the portion you did not pass.
