I got my RE license because my clients encouraged me to pursue it. However, though I like commercial real estate, people are saying I should start out with residential sales. Thoughts?
@Dale Largie, I like commercial so just jump right in. I should have started there but I have been in residential sales for 23 years and its too late for me to change. I just dont want to start over. I think commercial offers much more upside and you can make more money per deal. You are also working with less emotional clients and ones that are making more of a financial decision verses worrying about the color of the walls or what kind of flooring is in the living room.
@Alex Deacon , greatly appreciated. Those were my thoughts as I studied for the exam. Commercial real estate was much more appealing, probably due to my accounting background that allowed me to have an in-depth understanding of the nuances of commercial real estate.
@Dale Largie, commercial in the long run IMO is the way to go especially if you like working with more cerebral clients and less emotional. Plus the income side of things could be greater.
