Full Or Part Time Realtor
As per, Michael Polzler, head of Re/Max Ontario-Atlantic Canada, in Toronto, almost 20% of Realtors with the Toronto Real Estate Board didn’t complete a deal in 2009. Some brokerages have 70% of agents doing less than a deal a quarter.
According to NAR, National Association of Realtors only 27% of Realtors are full time.
When selling your property in Mississauga or elsewhere, you have two choices: to work with a full time salesperson or choose a part time real estate agent. Buying a home is one of your biggest investments and you should act wisely when it comes to choosing who you should work with. A full time salesperson has many advantages over someone who does his or her job to earn a side income. I am absolutely not personally against my part-time colleagues, I value their work and I give them full respect. We all understand that real estate career is a tough business to be in, and it is not everyone’s cup of tea.
The fact of the matter is that one should choose to work in his or her line of work and give 100% to one’s own profession or line of work. A full time career and not a part time real estate job, can help achieve and deliver the best results, this is my opinion. Having said that, I can also vouch that there can be many part time real estate agents who perform a much better job than many full time salespeople, who are not dedicated in their work as a real estate saleperson.
