Why I Wrote This Book!

This book was written with two primary objectives. Firstly, it was crafted with a heartfelt intention to empower individuals embarking on their journey in the dynamic realm of real estate. It aims to guide new career seekers towards real estate specialty areas that align with their professional ambitions and personal aspirations.

 Secondly, this book serves as a beacon of inspiration for those already navigating the waters of the real estate industry. It strives to propel them towards greater heights of success within their current specialty areas or to aid in a strategic pivot towards a more fulfilling and meaningful real estate career path—one that they may not have previously contemplated.

As a seasoned veteran in the real estate industry, I have spent the last 40 successful years in the business recruiting, teaching, training, and managing real estate agents in many areas of the real estate business. With all of this experience, I have been able to help so many find their right career path. This inspired me to write The Complete Guide to Careers in Real Estate.

This book is designed to provide an in-depth look at the real estate industry and the many different career paths that it offers. It will help you make an informed decision on which career path is right for you. It will guide you through the process of researching, interviewing, and finding success in the real estate industry.
