“If you’re an energetic and entrepreneurial person who loves to help people and are curious about it’s like to work in real estate, a career in the real estate industry might be an excellent fit,” said Kevin McGrath, managing broker of the Fredericksburg office. “We’re always looking for talented and driven individuals to join our team so together we can work to guide every client on their journey home.”
Real estate is a popular career path for individuals looking for a flexible career with unlimited growth potential. As a Realtor, you create your own business and invest as much time and effort into it as you choose. In recent years, the real estate industry has seen retirees—from former teachers and military professionals to business executives—entering the business after a successful first career.
At the career seminar, attendees will learn from industry pros what it is like to run a real estate business and get their questions and concerns about entering the industry addressed. They also will hear about the licensing requirements in their area, as well as the required practice and principles courses they will need to complete. Participants also will get an idea of a Realtor’s earning potential and the costs of being a licensed real estate agent.
The office’s next real estate licensing course begins on Tuesday, Sept. 5 and the course is $199. Scholarships and rebates are available to those who qualify. Classes will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-9:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning Sept. 5 and ending Oct. 10.

We’re dedicated to providing our Realtors with the tools and training they need at each level of their careers, whether they’re just starting out or have been in the business for many years, and that’s why we continually invest in our agents, their training and their businesses.”
