is becoming a loan officer and real estate agent a good career?

Deal Score0

I am a college senior studying business administration/finance. I did an internship at a mortgage company and loved it and I am also interested in architecture/interior design. I thought I wanted to go corporate finance but the more I meet people who are involved in high level positions, the more I realize how miserable and work consumed they are. I want a career with potential that allows me to interact with people, but also enjoy my life. Is a career as a loan officer and real estate agent a wise choice?

    I don’t know about a real estate agent but I worked as a loan officer for a number of years so I can give you a little insight. I loved working as a loan officer because you get a feeling of really “helping” your customers. Especially mortgage loans because your customers are really lost and if you are able to explain things to them in a way they understand, they are truly grateful (because it’s a really stressful time for them). (If you’re good) The pay is pretty good and there are substantial pay increases and timely promotions. The down side, you are expected to attend many functions, after hours and weekends. Not only are you expected to do this but it is necessary to do this because you have to drum up at lot of your own business to be successful. You can sit on your duff and just take walk-ins but believe me, you won’t be meeting your monthly quotas.

    So, if you enjoy doing the extra socializing (I did), this career is rewarding, fulfilling and offers good pay.

    Hope this helps.
