Have you ever considered a career in commercial real estate?
Often associated with residential real estate, commercial real estate (CRE) is actually quite different. A CRE broker sells and leases properties such as office, retail (stores, malls), industrial (warehouse/self-storage), multi-family (apartment buildings/complexes) and other commercially-used real estate. Work takes place during traditional office hours and often the commission earned on a single sale will be greater than that for an average home sale.
CRE brokers work as employees or independent contractors on commission (no salary, commissions are earned on completed sales/leases). In 2013, in the United States, CRE brokers earned on average $91,000/year. This varied by experience, region and type of area (urban v. suburban v. rural). To become a commercial real estate agent/broker you need a license in the United States and most other countries in the world.
