Is real estate a good profession to get into?
I want to work hard and want to enjoy helping others make an important decision. I know real estate is based on commission, I am wondering is being a real estate agent a good profession to get into? If you are willing to put the work in? TiA

Unless you are extremely motivated, can manage your own business and time, deal calmly with clients during stressful times of their lives, and can handle very erratic income, then no. Very few people succeed for any length of time at real estate sales, and there are frankly way too many real estate agents in most areas. People think it looks easy and that we make tons of money, but the truth is so, so different.

It's a great profession for about 10% of agents. The other 90%...not so much.
By the way, it's a trade, not a profession.
