Why not a Career in Real Estate?

The National Association of Realtors recently published its annual survey of the real estate profession and notable numbers.  It offers an upbeat snapshot about being a Real Estate professional. (Here in North Carolina, we are not “Real Estate Agents”, instead we take a much more rigorous course of study to become full Brokers straight away.) Below are some numbers of interest:

  • $54,900.  Average Broker’s Income
  • 40 Hours  per week  worked
  • $1.5 Million in sales volume per typical agent
  • 57% of agents are  Female
  • $4,520. Average annual business expense ( $1,770 of that is car expenses)
  • 4 of 5 agents are “very certain” they  will remain real estate professionals during the next two years.

I thought long and hard before deciding to become a  Real Estate broker, I select Keller Williams  in Cary NC to partner with because they are consistently rated as one of the best companies to work for in the United States, are known for offering the best educational programs in the industry, and have a huge referral network. Most importantly, our office ranks number one in customer satisfaction with both buyers and sellers…quality shows.
