Careers in Real Estate

The real estate profession offers one of the widest career selections in the business world today.

You may want to help people buy and sell homes, office buildings and/or industrial property, or you might want to enter into property management, land development, mortgage banking, urban planning, real estate counseling, appraising or research.

All are aspects of a career in real estate and each one offers a world of opportunity.

If you weren't sure before, hopefully you are now: real estate is more than a sign on someone's front lawn. It is one of the most dynamic business fields out there.

  • High earnings
  • Business autonomy
  • The freedom to use your time as you see fit
  • The satisfaction of helping people
  • Intellectual challenge
