Are you thinking of a career in REAL ESTATE? You'll want to read to the end...I promise it will be worth it. We are doing something different...just keep reading, but first the cold, hard truth...
Here's the deal, Real Estate is HARD, folks, really hard. That's why 20% of Real Estate Agents are selling 90% of the real estate. That's also why 80-90% of people who get their license are out of the business within 2 years. YIKES!
It isn't like TV. People don't just come begging for you to sell their homes. Sorry. AND the average real estate agent is making PEANUTS...seriously less than my teenage son makes working fast food. (Even though HGTV makes it seem sooo glamorous, easy, and quick money...not true. HINT: Don't believe everything you see on TV...we tell our kids that all.the.time. YET, reality shows makes it look so good.)
The other hard truth is that in order to get into real estate either on your own OR on MOST teams, you have to have 3-6 MONTHS or LONGER of savings because Real Estate is commissioned based and most people won't see their first closing for 3-6 Months AT LEAST if at all. The other hard truth is that in real estate, you are on the phone A LOT! AND Real Estate is sales.sales.sales.
It is a sales job, folks. In case you didn't know. (I didn't...until I did.)
Real estate is not 9-5. It is 24/7. Real Estate agents work A TON of hours and it is hard work!
THERE IS GOOD NEWS!!
We are doing something different than the rest of the industry...
We are Jason Daniels & Associates at RE/MAX Millennium. We are in the top 1% selling teams in Colorado and have been for a number of years. We've got longevity in this industry. What that means is that the agents on our team sell a lot and make a lot.
We are hiring real estate agents for our team. Don't have a license, yet? No worries, our interview process is long, but you will need to get one before we bring you on for our "paid working interview" which is the very last part of the process.
I would say we are like family, but after my last family vacation and refereeing my kids fighting in the car, I would say we are more like a healthy group of adults that care about each other and don't scratch faces (like my kids). We really do have a great group of people on the team. Everyone gets along, genuinely. We eat, sleep, and drink our core values.
THIS IS FULL-TIME. We don't hire any part time workers for this position. Once you've transitioned into an agent, you will work nights and weekends. That's real estate.
NOTE: Our interview process is LONG. We are not the kind of real estate team that will take anyone who has a real estate license, can breath, and likes pizza. If you want quick and easy--like a microwave dinner--anywhere else would be a better fit for you. If you want a supportive, welcoming environment with hard working team players, we are for you--like a fine dinner where the restaurant has table cloths (that's what my kids have determined makes a "super nice" restaurant). We get that our team isn't a great fit for everyone and not everyone is a great fit for our team. BUT for those who ARE a great fit, we make your place in real estate AMAZING and we want to be your peeps.
We are looking for GREAT people who are FANTASTIC at sales, (don't scratch--like my kids on long car trips), are kind, work hard, and are team players--seriously.
We want people who want to succeed. We want to help you succeed! We don't want you to be a statistic!
The first two months (must have your license before you start), you do some training and start on the phone and WE PAY YOU FOR THIS! (Not normal for this industry.) We want to see how you do converting leads to actual clients. If you can't convert leads to clients, you won't make it as an agent. Yes, we do this for everyone...even those who already have been in the biz awhile. It is hard and emotionally challenging, but if you can get through this boot camp, you will do GREAT! Then, we transition you into an agent role (at this point you go to 100% commission and the sky is the limit.)
As an agent, you:
Don't worry, we don't just throw you to the wolves, we hold your hand along the way!
