I remember when I first considered getting my real estate license. I had no idea exactly what I was getting myself into. I knew that my background in sales and online marketing would be an asset, but to be perfectly honest, finding someone to break down what was really involved in becoming a successful agent was all but impossible. When I searched for information online, all I found were consultants trying to sell me on their coaching course and a plethora of real estate schools. I have to say, NAR was helpful, but many of their reports are behind a membership wall and at the time I didn’t have my license.

“There is no security in life, only opportunity.”


This infographic is part of a series we are doing on being a real estate agent, what other agents are spending on advertising and marketing, what you can expect to spend yearly and how you might budget.

I’d love to hear about your personal experiences. What do you think? You can send me an email or find me on Twitter at @sethstuff.
