The business of the real estate agent is the ultimate people business. All great real estate agents have the ability to make an instant impression on anyone they meet. The only asset that a real estate agent has is his network. The only way for a real estate agent to get more clients is through his existing clients. Word-of-mouth is the biggest and maybe the only credible promotional tool in the business.

Donald Trump is the world's greatest real estate agent. He seems to have moved into the world of showbiz seamlessly. Both of them are essentially people businesses. When Trump began his career in New York he realized that he needs to be around the rich and famous if wants them as his clients. Using his consummate salesmanship abilities he managed to convince the committee of an elite club that he too deserves membership. Once he got his foot in the door, he literally tore it from the hinges. The drive that a good real estate agent has is unparalleled but so is the money that he could make.

Although there is an assessment you'll need to pass that may differ in every state, the basic requisites to be able to simply take that test are exactly the same. There are actually merely a couple basics. You must:

  1. Be at least 18 or 19
  2. Be a Canadian citizen. 
  3. Finished your mandatory pre-license instruction (changes by state -- normally 3 associated classes)

Here are some useful tips on becoming real estate agent:

Choosing
the right business
– One
can start by owning an independent business but many choose to join
a real estate franchise, first in order to get the desired training
and experience required to run a stand-alone business venture.
Besides, working with an established brand name would only help
establish more credibility with potential clients.

Creating
a sound business plan
– A
business plan must list out the objectives and financial
calculations in clear terms to avoid error of judgment later. An
exceptional business proposal will also positively affect in getting
decent funding from financial institutions.


Finding
a suitable location –
Locating
strategic neighbourhoods to open real estate business is a smart
decision. It’s essential to know the markets that one wishes to
cater to and accordingly select a suitable place which has an ease
of accessibility for clients.

Funding
the business
– It is
imperative to work out the capital at the very onset of developing a
business plan. Any aspiring real estate entrepreneur will have to
figure out whether he/she has enough financial resources at hand or
will more funds be required. Banks definitely can be approached for
loans, but the source of trusted family and friends should also be
explored

The uniqueness of the real estate licensing laws of each state is expressed in the diversity of laws, rules, and regulations that each state adopts. The states differ on every aspect of the licensing: How much education is required to obtain a license, the type and depth of the examinations, and whether education courses are required once an agent becomes licensed. Fees vary tremendously in the various states, as does the valuable potential of reciprocity with other states.

Becoming a real estate agents varies with country & the state. In US, the below steps are to be followed to become a real estate agent.

1. Pre-Licensing Coursework:

One is expected to take up a pre-licensing coursework & the duration ranges from 60 hours to 120 hours & more depending upon the state & the school.

2. Brokerage

Many states expect the candidates to work as an intern for brokerages. Hence, working for a brokerage agency to gain practical experience is a must before taking up the exam.

3. Licensing Exam

You need to appear for a licensing exam post successful completion a license is issued.  The exam cost & the content varies with the state. Normally, math-related & questions related to real estate laws & principles are asked.

4. Activation and Membership Fees

After securing a license, you need to pay to activate it & pay membership fee to list properties.

I work as a real estate agent for Nest Habitation & we in India don't need to get into above steps to become a real estate agent. What is required here is a good communication in English, Hind & a local language plus a sound knowledge of Indian real estate market.

Go to real estate agent school but what you should do is go to college study being an estate agent and take your time but in these days going into real estate is a risky move

Remember that an estate agent is basically a salesperson job. You have to have a smart suit and a big toothy smile and be prepared to flog some horrible old dump that's next to a polluted river to some poor grey-haired old lady who's looking to invest her life savings.

In addition, the market may be picking up at the moment, but I imagine there were a lot of commission-based real estate agents begging on street corners for a few months. If you're going to enter the industry, be prepared for the downs as well as the ups.
