Ready to Spring Forward? Consider a Refreshing New Career in Real Estate!

Ready to Spring Forward? Consider a Refreshing New Career in Real Estate!

After the long, bitter winter, it goes without saying that we all will be welcoming spring with open arms in just a few weeks. With the season of renewal nearly upon us, it is likely that many people have begun to consider making a few changes in their lives; you know, possibly looking at new homes, new projects or even new careers.

As you remember to turn your clocks an hour ahead this weekend and spring forward, consider the possibilities that starting a refreshing career in real estate might have for you!

Becoming a real estate agent has certain undeniable perks that begin from the time you become licensed:

1. You become your own boss. As a real estate agent, the only person telling you what to do and where to be, is you! So, if you’re tired of having someone else to answer to, real estate could be the perfect industry for you.

2. You create your own flexible schedule. Wish you were working from home today? As a real estate agent, you could be. Along with being their own bosses, real estate agents also set their own daily work hours, vacation time and work locations!

3.  You have an unlimited earning potential. Haven’t you always wished that you could get paid based on just how much work you put in? With real estate, the more you market yourself and your listings, the more income you have the potential to make.

4. You will never have the same day. Whether you’re meeting new clients, hosting an open house or catching up on some paperwork, being a real estate agent means there is always something new to do, so no work day is ever the same.

At Prudential Preferred Realty, we’re not only partial to the real estate industry, but we’re also partial to our own real estate process! Soon, we’re becoming Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices The Preferred Realty and there are a few additional perks not only to becoming a real estate agent, but particularly to joining our team:

1. We have a performance-based commission structure. The commission you earn is based on your success. So, the more successful that you are, the more money you can make!

2. We have non-competing managers. While our managers have a wealth of experience in the industry, they do not sell real estate; so, they won’t be competing with you. They are solely on your side to train you, support you and assist you with your transactions.

3. We offer free continuing education. Through our very own Pru University, you can enroll in free, on-going education classes to learn more about listing techniques, negotiations, home staging, marketing, technology and more.

4. We offer support through full-service marketing and technology departments. Our expert marketing and technology professionals are on hand daily to give you personalized marketing and technology support.

5. We offer top online exposure. We are the only local real estate company with featured programs on top real estate websites like Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com and Homes.com.

6. We celebrate our agents and their successes. Each year, we recognize our agents’ successes at our annual Awards Ceremony; but, we also hold various other celebratory events throughout the year.

7. We have fun! In addition to celebrating success with our agents, we also just like to have fun together. Some of our favorite outings with our agents include our annual Shrimp Boil and Bowl-a-thon, Pittsburgh Pirates tailgates, Gateway Clipper cruises, Christmas parties and so many other great events!

If you’ve always had an interest in real estate or are just looking to try something new and exciting this spring, the real estate industry may be just the right move for you!
