raleigh: Are new agents really different ? - 08/03/11 07:45 AM

Real estate is a wonderful game when times are good but not so much fun in down times. The Great Depression of 2008 until who knows when is one of those unkind times. Some seasoned agents probably put away funds from 2003-2008 but most probably did not. Like all 100% commission sales professions our incomes can fluctuate big time . If you are one of those who prepared for The Great Ressession then you are possibly in a position to invest which is where the real money is.

In 5 years you will be a happy camper.
