Thoughts on starting and building your real estate career

The above tweet references an interesting article from the OREA site. It includes:

Building a career in real estate takes time. … Do your best to look into your future and decide where you see yourself in ten years and start there.

In other words, move to the area where you want to work! Integrate yourself into the community!

Although you will be affiliated with a brokerage, you are your own brand. Therefore, you must consider how to build your own brand as a real estate professional.

And above all else:

Never confuse having a career with having a life!

Building a career in real estate takes time.  In order to be successful you have to commit yourself to a specific area for an extended period of time.  Choosing where you will start your career is also a choice of where you will live for the foreseeable future.  Do your best to look into your future and decide where you see yourself in ten years and start your career there.  It is counterproductive to work on building up your business in one location only to have to start from scratch in another area two years down the road.  Remember, being successful in real estate means being active in your community, and building long-lasting relationships. – See more at: http://www.oreablog.com/2012/06/starting-out-in-real-estate/#sthash.FTcskGNu.dpuf
