Has anyone considered leaving tax to be a real estate agent? I have thought about doing this off an on for years but have never had the guts to do it.

Had a friend just do this. Just an FYI. There are now more realtors than houses on the market in the US. So there is a ton of competition.

Yes. Planning to work on getting real estate license while working in tax! But may try to do part time real estate, not leaving tax altogether

Agree with STA 1 - you are way behind the curve. There are already signs of slowdown in the housing market, so now may be a bad time to enter.

I thought about it too, I like the flexibility, meeting new people. I’m thinking about doing it on the side to see how it goes, how hard is to get the license?

The right approach to religion:

Super simple. Claiming a specific religion is the truth is not the best approach to a conversation. However, claiming that people that believe in it are inferior in whatever way is beyond ridiculous.

Was Laid Off without a PIP but with strong positive reviews and delivering quality work. Ashamed of how EY Leadership is throwing dirt on it's laid off employees by emphasising layoffs were "Performance Based". Mean, Stealthy and Dishonest, COVID has exposed the dirty, selfish leadership mindset. To my colleagues laid off, its the failure of the business not your caliber as professionals. Don't let this mess with your self respect and self esteem. More power to all of us.
