Real Estate Careers

Real estate is the business of buying and selling buildings or housing. There are two major areas of real estate, commercial and residential real estate. Your career path will vary depending on which path you choose.

Real estate agents run residential real estate. The steps to becoming a real estate agent vary by state but typically involve an application, coursework, a licensing exam, and post-licensing coursework. You can also become a commercial real estate agent, which also requires licensing. In either case, you can work with an agency or go the self-employed route.

It’s also worth mentioning the many websites in the real estate business: Zillow, Redfin, and 42floors, to name a few.

You don’t need a bachelor’s degree to become a real estate agent, but it won’t hurt. Many of the other positions in real estate, particularly the administrative positions, typically require a degree.
