A career in real estate provides ample flexibility and freedom to set your own pace. Income directly reflects your efforts, with no limits on what astute, hard-working men and women can earn. Successful people in real estate are highly goal-oriented, persevering, self-motivated, ambitious, and people-oriented. The rewards of a real estate career are a potential for high earnings, prominent status in the community, autonomy, time freedom, helping people, the intellectual challenge, and the satisfaction from those accomplishments.

What is the income potential?

If the property is $200,000 and your commission is 3%, the gross income is $6,000.
If you close one transaction each month, then the gross income is $72,000.
