Although this figure in itself is promising, if we consider commission-based agents of the highest caliber, this is far from what this industry has in store for professionals who take challenges seriously. Indeed working as a real estate agent can be one of the most financially rewarding careers out there.
It also happens to be one of the most justifiably demanding. Just consider these responsibilities vital to the job.

This is where lead generation via marketing comes in.
The best real estate agents are always on the go, doing many things at once. This is not just a trope in popular culture, this is the reality. This is why every self-respecting agent needs task management software like Trello to keep tabs on all their deliverables.
Real estate agents talk to a lot of people, from clients to legal professionals. This said they are not just expected to have unrivaled communication skills, they also ought to be backed up with the most reliable communication technology available.

Whatever career path you choose, hustle will always be part of the game. Those who hustle best are of course rewarded. In the real estate arena, for instance, closing deals entail juggling an array of responsibilities that although demanding, can also be fun and exciting.
