Additionally, you can parlay your experience in any number of directions, such as property management, real estate investing, corporate real estate departments, or a shift from residential to commercial property sales. By paying close attention to alternate career paths and accumulating the skills you need, you open up more opportunities for advancement.
Maybe you’re a new parent and you want the flexibility to work from home, be your own boss, and develop a work schedule that is tailored to family life. Real estate can do that. Perhaps you’re nearing retirement age and want to supplement your income while enjoying the camaraderie that comes from working with other real estate professionals. Real estate can do that too.
