After teaching pre-licensing classes for many years, I’ve heard many different reasons for becoming an agent. Some students have told me they really like looking at houses so they think they would love being a Realtor. Others want to flip homes and re-sell them with dreams of getting rich quick. Some think that they can work as a Realtor part-time and double their income. Real estate is a wonderful, ever-changing field, but there are a few things that you may want to consider before getting your real estate license.
