Step 2 can be more challenging as it requires effective time management. As with a career in real estate, you must be self-motivated to complete your studies.
Step 3 is heavily dependent on how effectively step 2 was followed. Regardless of your initial results, the saying "Try and try again" applies here. You man retake your licensing exam multiple times until you achieve a passing grade.
Step 4 many times possess the greatest challenge. Although it is easy to find a brokerage, it is less obvious how significant making the wrong choice will impact your career.

It is critical to find a company that provides regular training, a team environment and technology that can propel you along your new career path.
