  • Depends on how well the market is. I don't think they're hiring a lot of people right now.

  • You have to get a license. It can be done in a couple of weeks. There is usually a week long class also at the agency.
    Real estate agents are usually independent. Agencies will often take you on and hold your license because you bring with you a new set of friends and potential houses, sellers and buyers. Real estate agents do not usually get paid until they produce.

  • I know several that are hiring I just didn't know how long training is, I don't want to train through Christmas if that makes sense. :)

  • Depends on where you live. Here it is a 3 month course you have to take and the test is really hard. So should you not pass the first one don't give up, try it again. From what I hear people have taken that test as many as 4-5 times before they pass. Good luck hon. It's a good profession.

  • As the previous poster said, it really depends on your state. In my state (Georgia), it is a 75 hour course that can be done online and you have to have it completed in 6 months. So, really it could be anywhere from 2 weeks-6 months, depending on your state and you.

  • It depend son your state and the regulations.
    That's a really bad career move right now. It is NOT a seller's market out there and Real Estate is at an all time slow crawl.

  • I am not out to make lots of money, (yes I am weird I know haha) I really enjoy helping my friends find house they love, I truly enjoying the searching a match make in a sense, So I thought It might be a great thing for me to do. My husband makes more than enough to support us, I just would like some extra cash to do extras with but it is not necessary I really just would love the joy of helping others!
