Who Becomes a Real Estate Agent? | Real Living Real Estate

About Us


A real estate career can be a rewarding choice for anyone, regardless of their level of professional or educational achievement. What you have done or learned prior to your real estate career can contribute to your success as an agent, but the common elements in most successful real estate careers are a sincere desire to help customers, a strong work ethic, and common-sense intelligence.

Your Own Path to Success

At Real Living, our Real Living Sales Professionals come from  a variety of backgrounds and beginning skill sets – and this holds true throughout the entire real estate industry. Since Real estate is first and foremost a service and relationship business, relatively few agents, including Real Living Professionals, come from careers where “hard selling” is a part of the job. Those who enter the industry from “sales” positions often find it to be more fulfilling, both in terms of personal satisfaction and earnings.


Real estate agents are often professional business men and women who have decided to “work for themselves.” Many are recent graduates from school, just starting their careers. Others are active semi-retired individuals, with years of experience and  wisdom to offer. Still others are energetic “part time” agents who dedicate their efforts to a tighter circle of customers.

Why Choose a Real Estate Career?

If you ask a Real Living Sales Professional – or any other real estate  agent, for that matter – why they chose a career in real estate, you’ll find a wide array of interesting answers. Real estate can certainly offer a high earning potential. The longer you stay in the business, the greater that potential becomes, through widening your circle of current and past customers, all of whom can refer new customers to you.


Many love the “helping people” aspect, while others want to exercise their independent nature and be their own boss. Most Real Living Sales Professionals are independent contractors, and are thus able to set their own work schedules and build their business in the way that they wish, while relying upon  Real Living for comprehensive training, support, marketing and career assistance.

From being your own boss to growing a lifelong business, there are many reasons to choose a real estate career. At Real Living, we  can provide you the necessary tools to serve your customers successfully as you build a personally enjoyable, satisfying career.
