The hardest part of being a Realtor is when you first start. The majority of Realtors work on strictly commission which means you do not make any money until you have buyer's and seller's that actually buy or sell a home.

It works best if you are fully aware of this upfront and plan accordingly. Generally, it will take 3-6 months to get it rolling so you will want to have a plan for how you are going to handle your finances during this time.

The business of Real Estate has ups and downs, so learn your market and work to find a Mentor in your area that will help you become a Successful Realtor, investigate joining a team since this may help kick start your career, and if you have new construction going on in your area, that may be a way to learn the business while also collecting a small salary and commission. There are many options and many seasoned professionals that will be happy to help you grow into a successful Realtor.

Hi - I work with agents on a daily bases. There is a lot of work they must do to get that property ready to be listed. Also, they get paid on what they sale, so that can be stressful. You will need to work on the weekends, cause that is the best time that most individuals want to view/walk a property, so you have to be available. It can be a very rewarding career. Good Luck!

I would say that the hardest part is working on a commission type of structure for to live! With a real estate job, you will earn your money by selling only, if the market is bad, or interest rates are high, people will not be buying homes, which means you will not get a paycheck! On the other side of the coin, you could have an awesome month where interest rates are low, and tons of buyers are ready to purchase, your paycheck could be huge! So its really a personal decision to be in that type of model, everyone has a different scenario, so if it works for you then go for it!
