My name is Mark Ferguson I love educating the world about investing in real estate and being a real estate agent.

family Becoming a Real Estate AgentBecoming a real estate agent was one of the best decisions I ever made. Although I struggled as an agent in the beginning because I had no plan, no goals, and assumed I would be successful by simply showing up. I went through a transformation in my mid twenties and realized if I wanted to be successful I had to make it happen, it would not happen for me.

Now I run a real estate team of ten that sells over 200 houses a year. Listing REO and HUD homes has been a huge part of my success, but so has creating goals and having a clear plan for my business. Being an agent has also made my much more successful as a real estate investor. Invest Four More has many articles on becoming a successful real estate agent and what it takes to make a lot of money as a real estate agent.
