What They Won’t Teach You in
Pre-License School

Your pre-license course helps you pass that real estate license test. But doesn’t give you the practical information to make the right decisions for you. Here, you get the pro’s tips on how to assess whether you’ll love real estate, how to interview to find the ‘secrets’, how to choose the right company for you, and how to avoid new agent pitfalls. The decisions you make will affect how successful you can become. Take every advantage you can get!

There's a lot of misinformation out there about real estate as a career. I wrote this book to give you the straight, unadulterated facts–without trying to sway you to 'that' company or sell you on real estate as a career if it isn't the right choice for you. I’ve even included questionnaires so you can get some indicators on whether you’ll love—or hate—selling real estate before you invest hundreds of hours of time and thousands of dollars.
