With more condos and developments cropping up all the time, the Toronto real estate market is booming. This is great if you're looking to sell your Toronto Beaches real estate, and it's also great if you're considering a career in real estate. If you're thinking about jumping in on this burgeoning industry but aren't sure what to expect or if you would be a good fit, this article should give you some insight on what makes a good agent and the road you'll have to travel to become one.
Many people assume that being a realtor is all about making money, but the best Brantford real estate agents are the ones who genuinely care about their clients. They're interested in helping them find the right property or buyer to fit their needs and are willing to go to bat for their clients during the negotiating process. A good realtor is a good salesperson as well as being sensitive to the needs of others. They're also able to think outside the box when it comes to picking properties that would be perfect for their clients.
The first step on your road to a career in real estate is to finish high school. Once that's done, you can take your realtor's course. The Ontario Real Estate Association has their own school which you can attend in person or through correspondence and study takes a few months to a year depending on the pace you set for yourself. Students must be 19 years of age or older and will be required to take an entrance exam when they're finished their course to become certified with the Real Estate Council of Ontario and go into practice as a realtor.
During your real estate agent training you'll be introduced to all the different facets of conducting a Lindsay, Ontario real estate transaction, from dealing with clients to negotiating contracts to real estate law and land structures. You will be asked to choose at the outset whether you want to become a salesperson or a broker and halfway through your studies you will have to concentrate either on residential or commercial real estate transactions, as the vast majority of Toronto realtors do not handle both.

Once you have finished your training and are registered with the RECO, you will have the option of applying for a job with a bigger company like Remax Scarborough or of opening your own real estate office, either independently or as part of a national franchise. Many new realtors find it easier to work with a big company at first because it allows them to absorb information from the company's more experienced realtors and to build a client list before they strike out on their own.
