Did you know?
Mark Twain’s famous quote “Buy land, they’re not making it anymore.” has never been more true.
A real estate agent acts as the representative of a buyer, seller, lessee or lessor in real estate transactions, and is responsible for organizing the details and paperwork.
What Is a Real Estate Agent?
A real estate agent (AKA broker) is someone who assists clients in the buying, selling and leasing any kind of real estate property for a client. Real estate agents are licecensed professional salespeople who help clients, whether single individuals looking for an apartment, families looking for their first home, investors looking for properties or millionaires looking for beach-side mansions.
Why Consider a Career in Real Estate?
There are few ways to earn a living that are more uniquely challenging and highly rewarding as being real estate agent. It’s one of the few careers where anyone (regardless of their background, experience or knowledge of real estate) can quickly start to earn a very high income ($50,000-$100,000+) with no degree and very little formal training.
How Can I Become a Real Estate Agent?
Real estate agents need to be licensed by their state, and the requirements are different for every state. You’ll need to attend training courses and pass an exam to get your license – but don’t worry, we’re here to help you, during training and when you’re “out in the real world” facing challenges that the initial training doesn’t prepare you for.

We have been studying agents who achieve millions of dollars of sales from all over the world, and we bring you case studies of their successes (and failures) for you to study as well as all their tips and advice for career success.
