Haysha Deitsch Guide on Becoming a Real Estate Agent
Real estate is a great career choice. If you are self-motivated, hard-working, and enjoy networking and helping others, you can build a seriously rewarding career. There are so many reasons to choose real estate as your career. However, real estate developer Haysha Deitsch reminds that there are two sides to every story, and a real estate career is no different.
Namely, in the United States alone, there are over 1.1 million Realtors. This makes real estate an over-saturated and ultra-competitive field. That’s why the first step in this process is making sure that real estate is right for you. Starting a full-time career as a real estate agent requires a full commitment. If you’re not convinced that real estate is the right path for you, Deitsch suggests that you reach out to local real estate agents and brokers and ask them questions about their day-to-day work.
Real estate is often portrayed as a job where you make your own hours and work from home. Even though real estate agents work flexible schedules, that doesn’t mean they only show a few houses on the weekend, party every night and wake up at noon. As a matter of fact, the path to realizing any success is usually long and arduous. Starting out in this industry can be incredibly daunting. You will personally need to invest thousands of dollars, and once you find an agency, you need to be prepared to spend thousands of more dollars every year in insurance, membership dues, office fees, etc.
Deciding to become a real estate agent is a major move in your career journey. Real estate has provided Haysha Deitsch with a great income, a flexible schedule, and incredible investment opportunities. But becoming a successful real estate agent is not that easy. To become a licensed real estate agent, you’ll need the right education, an established broker who can help you get your first clients, and you will need to pass the state and national licensing exams.
Every aspiring real estate agent must take pre-licensing courses, no matter where he lives. However, there are big differences between state requirements. In order to get additional information for the licensing requirement in the state you live, Haysha recommends contacting your state's real estate commission. Mr. Deitsch truly believes that there is no ceiling on what can be accomplished in this business, and if you put in the time and work, you could have all the success in the world.
