Hello, I’ve been in college for 2 years now and I haven’t learned a thing. I want to become a real estate agent would it be better to just take some time off from school or get my degree and become a real estate agent? Would a degree help me in any way as a real estate agent ? Thank you!
The right college degree can help if you are studying subjects that prepare you for being successful in business and being self employed. If I were young again,I would be taking classes in business management,finance,economics,and commercial real estate development.
I would continue your education while getting your license online. Proschools.com is a great online school to get your license at your own pace. Accounting, economics, marketing.. all good degrees to pursue to propel your real estate career. Good luck!
Get your degree. When you are being interviewed by sellers as to whether they should hire you or not, showing them you are a college grad will help push you over the finish line. Especially if it is a local School and the seller went to the same one! Having a degree shows you finish what you start, especially when it is sooo easy to quit. Plus you learn a lot. And you never know you could help sell your professors homes! Use your contacts in School as your client database! Just thought of that. I'm in school now and I will start doing that. Good idea.
A college degree teaches you how to learn and how to stick with and achieve a long term goal. I have a degree that I don't use, but I don't regret a thing, without that experience, I would not have learned what it takes for me, personally, to see something through and not give up. Sure, it might be expensive and seem like you aren't learning anything, but I'd venture to say that you are. Think beyond content knowledge, think of what it is doing for you as a person. Beyond that, a degree will open up doors that wouldn't have opened for you without one. At the very worst, getting a degree will not hinder you in any way. Best of luck!
