Stepping outside the box in today's job market, career alternatives in real estate is considered to many as "working the new economy" since the real estate field offers so many diverse options.
Connecticut's own Nationally acclaimed Real Estate speaker, instructor and owner/partner of Realty3 CT and Dynamic Directions real estate school , Adorna Carroll says "A career in real estate fits in with one's desire to pursue varied interests and talents in an industry where there is a high demand for licensed service professionals -- and that is what real estate agents are, service professionals in a field where the demand becomes a rewarding career."
For a real estate agent, each day brings something new. The rewarding part of a career in real estate is that a real estate agent gets to meet clients and visit properties in several locations instead of being stuck behind a desk. The greatest reward is real estate agents also make a positive impact on the lives of their clients. By providing professional advice to a home buyer or seller while researching and staying on top of current market trends, the sense of personal accomplishment leads to satisfaction in a real estate professional's career.
Many often wonder what it takes to sell a property. A successful professional must incorporate strong negotiating skills, knowledge of business issues impacting real property utilization, market trends and technology while focusing their attention to the daily needs of their clients. Every day is different so for people who are tired of the same old day in, day out routine, this profession would be a perfect fit.
A licensed real estate professional knows exactly how to price a property based on today's market, and exactly where to apply the marketing techniques to advertise a home for sale. While the same applies to buyers in the real estate market, the ability to make a buyer aware a property is for sale the minute a property goes on the market is staying above the basic notification, it is staying on top and in lead of the service a licensed real estate agent provides.
A career in Real Estate is followed by attending Real Estate school that prepares a professional to pass the state exam required to obtain a license. Remember it is not just a career, but being a real estate agent also serves as a profession of servicing sellers and buyers in today's real estate market through ethical standards that are set forth by The National Association of REALTORS®.
