Are you a Real Estate Broker or Agent, we want to show you something!

Nobody has to tell you how difficult the economy has been. In the best of times, a small percentage of the agents make the top incomes.

I was a real estate broker for about 20 years. We worked as a family team, and eventually had our own RE/MAX franchise office for 5 years. Then we were an independent brokerage after that.

I taught Real Estate licensing classes in PA and NJ for a number of years until I got too ill to teach. Then I did social media consulting for agents and offices to help them “get with the times”.

Bruce is still a Real Estate broker, and still teaches licensing classes.

We know what you are going through!

On the NAR page of Real Estate Statistics, they say the median income for an agent working full time 40-59 hours a week is $49.000 gross a year. http://www.realtor.org/field-guides/field-guide-to-quick-real-estate-statistics

We also know how expensive being in business is! Taking clients to search for properties in your car. E&O Insurance. Continuing Education courses and Designation classes. Advertising and Marketing. Signs, flyers, etc. etc. etc.

People think that you make a fortune because of the amount on their HUD-1 settlement statements. They don’t know that your income is probably split with your broker, and you pay your own business expenses out of that as well.

From the post on http://www.thetruthaboutmortgage.com/how-much-does-a-real-estate-agent-make/ there are even more interesting statistics about Realtors (members of the National Association of Realtors) –

“It found that the median income for a “Realtor®” fell 4.5 percent to just $34,100 last year, which followed a three percent decline in 2009.

For NAR members in the game just two years or less, the median was a paltry $8,900, while those in the business 16 years or more earned a median $47,100.

Members licensed as brokers earned a median of $48,700 last year, while sales agents earned $24,900″

Most people in the Real Estate business have another income – pension, a working spouse, or another job. The vicious cycle for people that work another job, is that it is VERY difficult to take care of your clients and customers when you are not always available. So, you need a partner who will share your commission.

So for people in the Real Estate Business who DO need to work, an online business may be ideal. Especially one that takes an hour or less of your time a day to manage!

      Hi Baz, It is going really well. I feel that this is a combination of Social Media and Ministry. The system builds your income slow and steady for the first few months. I am totally on track. I would love to chat with you about it when we are both online. Are you using gtalk? I would love to connect with a text chat. sallykwitt@gmail.com. So nice to hear from you! Hugs and Blessings, Sally
