Real Estate jobs in Columbus, OH

4 Replies

I have an interest in potentially switching from the job I have now to a real estate job of some sort. I am open to anything. I am completely new, and I do not have experience in any real estate jobs. I want to learn as much as I can, so what better way than though a real estate job. 

I'd stick with your current job and send some inquiries to property management companies about becoming a leasing specialist, maintenance person, or groundskeeper. That could potentially be a small time commitment and could get you involved just enough. You could also ask some Realtors out to lunch and see if there is a way you can get involved with helping them out.

By keeping your other job you can give yourself time to assess if this is something you want to commit to or whether its just a temporary motivation.

 You could get your license and while working full time. As you grow your business you could eventually quit your job. Even if being an active realtor isn't your end goal you would make some money and learn a ton about the market!

I started part time with my RE license in Columbus. One big deal can allow you a huge  commission. You won't get anywhere being a groundskeeper, etc. It's a way to get your foot in the door but I believe in risk reward and if you aren't taking risks then you won't get rewards. Not a lot of upside in any of those roles. In less than 1 year I was very successful in real estate and quit my part time job.
