Hello Dawn, I’m a 3rd year college student studying business economics and
law! I was wondering if you could give me advice for a young adult looking
to become a part time realtor.

Kenny, don’t become a part time REALTOR. The up front costs included taking
a class, obtaining a license, joining various associations. Initially you
are going to have up to $3,000 in expenses. you will take home about $1,500
from your first sales. From that you will have to save for self employment
taxes pay your self back hundreds of dollars in travel expenses. Instead
you should look for an agent who is hiring an assistant. Get you feet wet
in the industry and see if you want to dive in.

Great video. You should get a tripod instead of holding the camera.

Thank you for this video. (I actually was raised in Minneapolis, Mn and
still call it home), I currently live in Ohio and have been a stay-at-home
mom (19 years) who is now ready for a career and I really think this field
is for me. I am going to sign up for the classes and I am excited to learn
everything that I can. I will definitely keep watching your videos.

I agree whole heartedly with Dawn! I’m in my first year and its been hard
but I’m having a wonderful time! Definitely count the cost and be prepared
to have a slow start to a potentially lucrative career!

Do you have any verifiable facts to support your statement that “most
people do not pass” the test the first time. You make many statements
regarding , part timers, agents get in the business to buy or sell their
own home, which you say is a bad idea. Telling the public to work with
larger companies? Because it gives the agent more power? Are you kidding
me? I have worked for large and small companies and find your statement
I guess you haven’t read Article 15 of the Code of Ethics where it states:
REALTORS® shall not knowingly or recklessly make false or misleading
statements about other real estate professionals, their businesses, or
their business practices. (Amended 1/92)
Franky, I was surprised with the ease and recklessness that you spoke about
other agents, their practices and business.
I’m wondering if your broker ever approved this video.
