What Entices People to Begin a Real Estate Career?

It is no secret that for the majority of real estate agents, real estate is a second or third career choice. Rarely what they start out to do. You don't really hear children proudly proclaiming they want to grow up to become a real estate agent. Well, unless they grow up in a family real estate business. But with the way family dynamics work, they may instead choose to get as far away from real estate as they can.

So how do people come to the decision to be a real estate agent? What drives them to seek a career in the real estate industry? I have a few theories and ideas about that, of course. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Why Do People Go Into Real Estate?

There is something about this particular photograph that speaks to so many possible issues in Sacramento real estate, but to me the guy looks like a ditz. Maybe it's his shoes, probably European, or his over-sized feet. The shoes are too clean, as… more
