Real Estate Agent
Real estate agents list living properties for sale and show these properties to prospective buyers. They are analyzers, connectors, and entrepreneurs who strive to find the best options tailored to the consumer, no matter the budget, size, or location. They usually have strong sales or communications backgrounds and an affinity for socialization. They often work independently and have flexible schedules in order to accommodate their clients. They have a direct impact on the housing market by managing the prices of properties and comparing to competitors.
Those interested in becoming real estate agents should look into the guidelines dictated by their state as laws for licensure differ depending on where you live. A minimum educational background of a high school diploma or GED is usually required. Jobs for this role are expected to grow 7% by 2028.
