18 year old too young for the real estate world?

okay so i had my first meeting with a Brokerage firm, although it went well and i knew what to ask and what not, something they told me i did not like. They said that since i am 18 i should just let my liscence remain inactive and become an assistant. I have been studying this field and reading about it and i feel like i have the knowledge that many new assistants have and i could start selling already. but they insist that because of my age and my baby face it will be hard for people to take me seriously. i think that as long as i give top fiduciary services it should not matter what my age is or how old/young i am. what do you guys think?? should i just be an assistant or take the risk 

Lots of firms like to recommend that at the beginning it seems. Being an assistant isn't necessarily a bad thing. It really is a great way to learn a ton about the business, but if you really want to get yourself out there then find a firm who will let you sign on. Just know that there is a lot to the business that can't be learned just from reading.

i believe you should forge ahead with your plan and be encouraged.  I would also advise to read Jack Canfield, 7 Habits of Highly Effective people, The Happiness project, Richest Man in Babylon, How to win friends and influence people, think and grow rich, the greatest salesman in the world.
