You are probably thinking how long will it take to get your first paycheck once you get your real estate license. This is something I did not think about until I was in my third or fourth class and still did not do anything about it. I just kept studying and hoping that everything will be alright. Thankfully to God, it did but I thought I would look for information for newby Realtors. If you don't have a source of income it could get very tough.
I remember asking one of my teachers at real estate school how much would I earn by selling a house. So he started explaining to me how the Realtor/Broker would get a commission and how the split will work. We will get into that in the near future. Also, I remember when I got to join the office I started working with I remember the office manager telling us that it could take up to 6 months to get my first paycheck. I went like what??? this is not possible.
I decided and got the commitment that I would do it as fast as I could if not I would run out of savings. So, I hit the ground looking for Fizbos, I got my first listing within weeks of joining C21. I remember that the for sale by owner was very courteous and gave me the listing with no hesitation. It was like he was waiting to be approached. So, I wanted to share an article where you can learn what to do while you get your real estate license and you can hit the ground running.
