  1. Mark, great post! I’m not a realtor, but I was considering getting my brokers license to get into property management. Maybe I should do real estate instead? I love houses and buildings, and am an investor, but a nice supplement would be RE commissions. Hmmm? Something to ponder. Anyway, nice write up.

  2. Hello, My name is Elena. I just started to work as a estate agent, Rental team. Everything is new for me.
    It’s a lot of property for rent, but it’s hard to find a client. I’m talking about clients with budget more than 1000 euros. Any suggestions what I can do? I use Google+, twitter, facebook page for now. But still I got only 4 clients with a budget not more than 400 euros.
    P.S. I work only 2 weeks for now, before it was training for 2 weeks.
    I will be happy to hear any suggestions.
    Thanks in advance.

  3. Hi Mark,
    I am an Asian from Phils and have experienced as real state agent for 2 years, now Am here in Canada since July 2014 and not yet a P.R in this country. I have an absolute plan to get involve into real state business. My question for now is, what are the requirements as a part time agent?
    Your response will be very much appreciated.


  4. Mark, great article! I am a newly licensed agent in Southern California. I am highly motivated but your article just pushed it up a notch. Thank you!

  5. This was awesome info

    • Looking at the name you put in I would say keep reading the real estate agent articles on the site!

  6. making millions as a real estate agent seems easier than before. I have a friend who sold over 100 houses here in Nigeria in a year worth billions via online marketing. From my chat with him, he only spent few buck on PPC advert. Nice tips, your article is quite insightful. Thanks

  7. Hi mark excellent
    I am in real estate from 5 year no success
    Money what I should do.
    I need to change company or ???

    • That all depends on what you are doing now, what have you tried, how big is your database, how do you market, etc. What does your company do for you now?

  8. I am going to be starting college soon and I am heavily leaning towards becoming a realtor, but I’m scared that I won’t be successful and that I will regret my decision of studying to become one. I want to be able to have a somewhat stable income, at least enough to where I won’t have to struggle and worry about finances. Do you think I should go for it?

    • I can’t tell you one way or another. I think real estate is an awesome career, but you have to be a bard worker and smart worker.

  9. I truly do enjoy your articles Mark! There is one thing I am a bit confused about though… Why would you so persistently promote an online RE company that is shown to have terrible reviews from all of its users? Do you have an in with Real Estate Express and do they simply pay you to advertise for them? Or do you honestly stand behind their company?

    • Hi Tiffany, I do have agreements with some advertisers and some affiliate agreements as well. I would not say that real estate express has bad reviews from everyone. it is tough to review a real estate school, because people are only going to go to one school in most cases and real estate classes are not exciting by any means. Three of my agents on my team used real estate express and had no problems with them. They were also one of the cheapest options available.

  10. Hi Mark. I’m almost 18 an I want to make a difference in my life. I have a simple life plan of where I want to be in life for the far future, it’s a simple plan but it won’t come easy an I know that, but I’m willing to work for it. I strongly believe that getting into the real estate business is what is going to kick start me off to help me expand an improve in life. I love homes (houses/flats) an I know a good looking home when I see one. All i want to know is simply where do I start? What is the best/most rewarding possible way to get into the real estate business?

  11. Hello Mark, Thanks for the write-up. I have been an agent for 10 years now. Working it P/T for 6 years and then switched over to F/T for past 4 years now working with Keller Williams Realty. I have been thinking of getting my Brokers license and only need 3 classes to be able to take the state test. What are your thoughts on venturing out on your own VS. staying with a brokerage after getting my brokers license?

    • It all depends on your goals and the support you need. I don’t want my own office, but I love having my own team

  12. hello my name is Kortu and my goal is to work at least 5 years as a real estate agent after earning my bachelor than start my own business and company. I would love your import on how i will start working as a real estate agent as soon as i graduate and also an email from you on how i could or can start my plan as a business and also achieve it.

    • I would start right away taking real estate classes so when you graduate you can hit the ground running.

  13. I am getting reading to take my real estate here in Tennessee, and I was wondering if you knew of any good agencies down here. It is really hard to figure out which agency would be the best for me, because I don’t want too large of a group, but ideally I would like to make 200,000 a year a least. The houses near me sell for about 400,000+. I’m just not really sure where to get started to work towards that goal.

  14. Thank you for information into this business. I am willing to do the work. I passed my crash course ( one week) school of RE exam and now scheduled for the Florida RE exam with PearsonVue in May. Your article is very encouraging and what I needed to read more than so many others online. I just don’t want to make others( like CEO’s) rich anymore in their businesses. As a Registered Nurse in a hospital, I have a strong work ethic and very good with people. I believe I can do this. Its time to enrich me now. Something just clicked in me and I am making a change.

  15. Hi Mark,
    I really liked your book on Real Estate investing and am almost ready to take my states Real estate Exam. One thing I think about though is how much does the saturation of real estate agaents in certain area ( my area being Southern California) affect a realtors ability to break into the market and continuously grow your business? It is like the “cream rises to the top” no matter the competition or is it like a grocery store which needs an average of 13,000 people of population per store to survive or a combination of the two? I appreciate your help. Thanks Mark.

    • Thanks Taylor, The cream rises to the top! It is tougher in a market with many agents, but most agents are not very good.
