• If you're successful enough doing real estate part-time that you're thinking about making it your career, then you should realize what a blessing this is in your life.

As coaches, we get approached frequently by prospective clients working part-time in real estate, wondering whether they should become full-time agents. Once a part-time agent starts making real money working weekends and evenings, it’s difficult to ignore the draw of how much income potential there is if they transitioned into real estate full-time.

On the other hand, many part-time agents take comfort in the financial and lifestyle stability that comes with a traditional 9-t0-5 career, and they feel torn when it comes to letting that go to pursue a “riskier” venture in real estate.

If you’re successful enough doing real estate part-time that you’re thinking about making it your career, then you should realize what a blessing this is in your life. Whether or not you decide to go full-time is completely up to you — and since it involves making a lot of decisions that impact your finances, schedule, lifestyle and family, you shouldn’t accept judgement from anybody in the industry about what’s “better” or “worse.” If part-time works, stick with it. If you want more, it’s out there waiting.

Today we’re continuing our discussion of what’s involved with transitioning from part-time to full-time real estate. If you missed our past episodes, you can listen to part 1 and part 2 online here, and make sure to listen carefully as we cover all the ins and outs that go into transitioning from part-time agent to full-time superstar.
