New Year? New Career! It's Time to Get Real About Real Estate

Now that the holidays are over and we’re into 2015, it is time to begin keeping all of those resolutions that you set for the new year. Maybe you’ve already put your “exercise more, eat less” plan into effect; maybe you’ve already abandoned that same notion; but, what has come of that professional goal you set for the new year? Have you begun to think about how you can achieve career success in 2015?

Start by determining what is important to you when it comes to your career. Is it:

Being in charge of your own business?

Setting your own hours?

Getting paid for the amount of work that you actually put in?

If those are things that you would like to achieve in 2015, this could be your year to begin a career in real estate. In fact, you could achieve all of that and more by becoming a professional real estate agent. Self-motivated, energetic individuals have the potential to earn six-figure, commission-based salaries by working in the real estate industry.

Of course, it sounds great; but, how do you get there?

Actually, unlike some of the weighty resolutions above, resolving to work in real estate in 2015 is a very attainable goal. To be a licensed real estate professional in Pennsylvania, there are two 30-hour courses that you must complete. Following those courses, you’ll take the licensure exam and, upon passing, you’ll eligible to receive your very own real estate license!

If you choose a real estate career with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices The Preferred Realty, we even offer free review sessions to help prepare for the Pennsylvania’s licensing exam. But, those are not the only perks of working at one of our 18 western Pennsylvania offices.
