Is Real Estate Calling Your Name?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Buy and Sell Oklahoma LLC 172320

If you made it pass the title, you might be among the following:

- considering a career in real estate
- interested in investment property
- one of my family or friends who feel obligated to read my post.

Of course there are many other reasons why real estate could be calling your name.

I will let many of you off the hook now - and speak directly to those considering a career in real estate.

No, I'm not going to give 6 Steps to a Successful Real Estate Career nor will I be sharing Real Estate War Stories - at this time.

Instead, I want to offer a little questionnaire as you consider enrolling in that real estate course: (YES/ NO, TRUE/ FALSE)

  1. Does the word LIABILITY scare you?
  2. Are you extremely tempted to make something up when you do not know?
  3. Do you blame others easily
  4. Will you place your need to get paid over doing what is right?
  5. Do you live by "What they don't know won't hurt them" motto?

 If you answered "NO" or "FALSE" to all the questions above - adding that online real estate course to your CART may not be a bad idea.  You will have so many opportunities to ask questions, take responsibility, embrace integrity, showcase "Honesty is the Best Policy," and enjoy how the word "LIABILITY" keeps you accountable (by continued learning, documentation, paying attention to details, following through on what you say. and more).

For those of you seeking a real estate license in Oklahoma, I recommend contacting Oklahoma Real Estate Education School.  The instructor is the former Director of the Oklahoma Real Estate Commission and is available via phone, text, email.

*Somehow my post ended with a little advertisement*

I am extremely proud of what my mother has done (and continues to do) for the real estate industry and wanted to share my most valuable resource.

Thank you for encouraging others to "dig in and go for it!"

Good morning Alesha - working in real estate is like anyone who wants to be in their own  business.  You need to do it for the right reason.

That is so true Grant Schneider!
When I started in real estate I did not think about it as my own business - but now I am learning to embrace my entrepreneurial side.  I love reading posts and comments in the Rain as there are so many who seem to be doing it for the right reasons (:

Although Oklahoma is not one of the States I have been licensed in, your advice holds true in all 50!

Morning Alesha.

My OK. license is on hold as I have found it difficult to locate anyone who offers a class (classroom) for my CE.  Any suggestions?

Good morning James Dray 
Oh man, mom and I were just in Arkansas last month to teach the 3 hour Oklahoma non-resident class.  (Well, she did most of the teaching, I assisted (:
If it's ok with you, I will have her reach out to you for upcoming classes or other options.

Please, I need to get caught up on CE, it's been 3 years.  So whatever classes I need to take, I also need a place to hang my license

WOW good questions!  Not what I was expecting at all!!!

I suggest....if someone is really interested in becoming an agent--shadow an agent for a week or so. Get the good and the bad. Then think hard and decide if it's right for you!

Thank you Mary Hutchison, SRES, ABR.
You have a wonderful suggestion - shadowing an agent for a week or so (:
Whether they get a slow week or a "hustle and bustle" week, it will provide great insight!

Great post Alesha A. Wilson, M.Ed., MRP not enough folks think through the reality of real estate sales.

Thank you Lisa Von Domek (:
Agreed!  Hopefully those folks are presented with opportunities to think things through before they get into trouble.
Have a great day!

Alesha, getting into real estate requires a lot of questions of a long term agent, then proceed with caution.  It isn't always for everyone.
