Start An Exciting Career In Real Estate
Each of our successful real estate agents started their careers with a decision. A decision to step into a career with wide open income potential and time flexibility. Many have moved to selling real estate after success in other sales careers, yet the majority started simply with a desire to assist home owners and sellers while building a profitable business of their own.
If you get excited about the opportunity to be your own boss while working within the guidance of a well organized and regulated industry then real estate may be perfect for you.
If you are a “people” person you are going to love it! Selling real estate involves building relationships and many high-income producing agents are able to build excellent referral businesses by providing on going support to their clients.
But wait. What's a REALTOR®?
According to the British Columbia Real Estate Association, “not all real estate trading services licensees in BC are REALTORS®. To be classified as a REALTOR®, an individual must be a member of a real estate board and therefore a member of their provincial association (BCREA in BC) and the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). REALTORS® also adhere to a strict Code of Ethics.”
Benefits of being a REALTOR® include:
- Access to the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®)
- Professional standards and business practices
- Access to standard forms
- Educational standards and opportunities
- Access to statistics, newsletters and other industry communications
- Leading-edge marketing and technology tools
- Arbitration services
- Networking opportunities
