A New Career in Real Estate after Retirement
Published Thursday, June 14, 2018
After working the same job (or many different jobs) for 40 or 50 years, most of us look forward to retirement and we’re ready to take it easy.
However, after getting the “gold watch,” playing a hundred rounds of golf, traveling here and there, tending the garden day after day, and driving your spouse crazy, sometimes you’ll get really bored. When the lack of purpose and the loss of the identity and self-esteem you got from your old job affect your happiness, you might find yourself thinking, “I gotta do something meaningful.” You may want to consider a profession where wisdom and grey hair can be a real plus … become a Realtor®.
A fresh new career in real estate might be just what you’re looking for. There are lots of great benefits to a part-time or full-time real estate career. First of all, it gets you out of the house. It lets you meet new people and make new friends as you help them with their important buying and selling decisions. Plus, you can earn some good retirement income … all without having a boss breathing down your neck.
In order to start a career in real estate, you’ll need to get a real estate license and that means going back to school. Learning something new, attending college level classes, and spending time studying will help keep you sharp. Call me! I'll be happy to discuss the benefits and the process of being a real estate agent with you.
Another big plus of becoming a real estate agent (or Broker) is you set your own schedule, so you can still play golf or garden or volunteer at the local food pantry. … and let’s face it … it’s much better for your self-esteem than standing for hours saying, “Welcome to Wal-Mart.”
