Ignore all the glamorous posts about earning $100k, $250k, $500k in a month. Real estate is not just about all the success stories you see on social media, in fact most agents are not even earning $100k a year. As someone who made the switch from banking to real estate, I can tell you firsthand how it feels and what are the challenges you are going to face.
Just like most people, I started my career in the banking sector. It was a SAFE job and when I decided to make the switch, most of the people including my parents couldn’t understand why I would want to switch from a glamorous banker role to a self-employed real estate agent. Nonetheless, my wife gave great support and encouraged me to venture into this whole new challenge.
It was a daunting start. I would say it’s the most challenging job that I have done till to-date as your stable flow of income suddenly becomes 0 but your household bills continue to run. It was a challenging 6 months. I tried all methods, packed myself full of activities, re-connecting with people, grabbing any opportunities which comes my way, at the same time tapping on my previous resources and connections. Accompanied with the right training and support in AaronWanDivision, I was able to quickly adapt which allows me to have an exceptional start in my real estate career.
From my personal experience, it isn’t choosing to join someone who’s glamorous, flashing their fancy watches and cars on social medias, more importantly, you need to find someone who’s able to handheld you, guide you at every stage, tailor something where your strength lies and I’m glad that my leader, Aaron have done that for me.
