One of the things that make you change jobs the most is the lack of sales and this goes hand in hand with the lack of contacts to make sales, that is, a real estate agent is like a forward soccer player, he lives on goals, not having many salespeople tend to give up.

Many real estate agents have the problem that we do not know how to grow their network and it is normal but sometimes it is frustrating to the point of making us give up.

The lack of ATTITUDE is something that would make you quit any job but in real estate sales, it is crucial to have the right attitude because it is the only way to deal with the dry times and even more the good times.

No guaranteed income, low pay and no benefits like health insurance

I only need one: Time-consuming paperwork. Filling out endless paperwork is not my idea of a good time

Limited earning potential. The majority of agents make a commission-based income, which means that their earning potential is capped at a certain level. This can be frustrating when you know you are capable of more.

Lack of control over your own destiny and inflexible hours and job demands. Many factors outside of your control, such as the market or the economy, can affect your success as an agent and the real estate industry is notoriously demanding, with long hours and frequent travel required.

Hello Everyone,

I'm currently a civil design engineer, and trying to switch to real estate as a Program Manager. I have an interview in a week where they tell me I will have to work on ( for about 3-4 hours ) on an operational case study.

The job is located in Paris and the job is in French .

Does anyone here have any case studies in Real estate that they can share ? and if they're from France, that would be even better.

Thank you in advance !
