WHY TEACHERS MAKE
GREAT REAL ESTATE AGENTS
If you weren’t aware already, I am an 8th grade teacher. Three years ago I decided to add a new path into my life of being a real estate agent. Mostly I was watching first hand the joy my husband, Steve, was experiencing help clients as a real estate agent. But then it also dawned on me that there are some hard to find traits that teachers generally have that would make becoming an agent fill like a glove.
The ability to pass empathy and knowledge to another human being in an organized manner is a gift that a large majority of the population not only lack but cannot even truly comprehend. You work hard to pass information to your students and equip them with the necessary tools to develop into productive members of society and believe it or not, these skills translate heavily in the world of real estate.
Educating different parties, constantly learning new subjects within our respective fields, and understanding a client’s needs is at the forefront of what Realtors do. Teachers possess many of the defining qualities needed to be a successful real estate agent and are benefited beyond their gifts and skills, but also with the added bonus of a bit of flexibility within one’s schedule.
