Making a career switch into the real estate can be exciting or nerve wrecking. Today, I will touch on the 3 most burning questions people ask before becoming a property agent.
Yau Hong (not his real name), my friend's brother, called me one day.
He was 44 years old and wanted a career switch because he felt burned-out. Just like me previously, he flew a lot for his work for more than 2 decades.
He wanted a change of environment and was decided to find out more about real estate before giving it shot.
He had a thousand and one questions for me but basically I could group them into 3 broad category. The questions got more and more challenging :
(A) How to become a property agent?
(B) How much does a property agent make?
(C) Which is the best agency to join?

(A) How To Become A Property Agent?
Basically, Yau Hong wanted to know how much time and money he had to spend to get the RES (Real Estate Salesperson) license.
