Those are some great career aspirations. I know that our local real estate companies (Berkshire and ReMax) actually have preceptor programs). You can try emailing some local real estate companies near you and inquire about preceptor programs. Good luck.
There's not one specific thing that you need to do but these are some things to simultaneously focus on.
Start off by watching videos on Youtube and familiarizing yourself with the terminology.
Figure out what you find interesting about it and have the language to go along with it.
Do you want to be part of the sale? You could be a listing agent, or a buyer agent.
Do you want to sell commercial property? List? Help a buyer?
You could also manage the property. You could market the vacancy, show it to potential customers, sign the lease. Ensure its maintained.
Maybe you like working with your hands and fixing things. Does being a maintenance manager , or technician sound fun?
Lets not forget the funding side. You could work with a mortgage company as a processor or loan officer.
There are years of learning ahead of you. I find it enjoyable and rewarding, and you can take your career anywhere.
As for real estate. As previously mentioned it’s going to be some financial investment. But more importantly it’s about learning to network and market yourself to others. Real estate is a very competitive industry. But it can be rewarding if you’re in it for the long-haul and to help people. If you’re in it just to try to make money you probably won’t succeed! so instead of asking yourself how do I get into these industries. I would ask yourself why you want to be in these industries. I will say becoming a car salesman is easier initially then becoming a realtor. Good luck and follow your passion!
Long answer, but I hope that helps.
