Man, there sure is a lot that goes into being a real esate agent huh? I'm not sure what other states require, but in Kansas and Missouri, it seems like a lot. I went in last week for some Post Licensing classes at Career Education and while the instructors are great, the material can be SOOOO boring!
All of that being said, I find with each class I take, that I come to respect the real estate profession more and more. As agents, we are responsible for A LOT! It is important that clients find someone who actually knows what he/she is doing. I am so lucky to work for Marti Shuey because not only is she a great boss, but also is an expert real estate agent in our Kansas City area.
My heart goes out to first time buyers in the Kansas City area, that is why we love working with them so much. There is an abundance of information and you must have an agent that A) Knows what she is doing and B) Will take the time to explain everything to you.
