Full or Part Time Realtor?

By
Real Estate Agent with GA-agent.com

I'm wondering if there is any newer agents out there like me who feels (at this particular time) that real estate isn't enough...That the possibilities of doing some other type of business seem endless.

To be able to take advantage of my real estate market knowledge and, say, buy a not-so-expensive building or lot and put up a low maintenance operation like a car wash or a storage facility would be pretty sweet.

Do you think you're having a tough time making a living in real estate because your company's business philosophy is built around discounted commissions and those commissions are not enough to live on???

Not a condemnation, just a question.

Absolutely not!

Full Service Brokerage advantages at low set fees??? Who in (as a seller) wouldn't jump all over our model?

We've all, as consumers, become much more savvy with tools such as the internet available to us.

We've become a do-it-yourself society and I think the Help-U-Sell business model is poised to become a huge success in the coming years.

I'm new to real estate and, thus, I've come to understand that it WILL take some time to get established and start making a serious living.

The beautiful thing though...We are a team, paid a salary, provided signs, provided supra keys, provided business cards, provided with a vehicle allowance and cell allowance, the leads keep comin in and I'm happy!

Thanks for your comment Jim!

Hi James,

I know at time s it can get very discouraging when you are a new agent.  You need to be prospecting every day and also submitting your site to realtor directories like national Relocation and others that will send out referrals.
