Victoria, Saanich, Esquimalt, real estate, Boomers and SeniorsReal Estate,  As The Perfect Career in Retirement

Yesterday we wrote a blog about a variety of income opportunities for Boomers and or Seniors .

You can check out this post here.

We deliberately omitted one Pfanntastic career and or income opportunity from our post about creating a comfortable retirement lifestyle, by adding a bit of income.

In Greater Victoria there are currently about 1250 licensed Realtors many of which are now deemed to be either part-time Realtors and or licensed Assistants or team members to a larger Real Estate Team of Realtors inside of a Real Estate company.

To pursue Real Estate as a "sales" career in Greater Victoria, the process to become licensed is relatively straight forward and well defined. the best resource is at the Real Estate Council of BC website

Each and every Real Estate Transaction involves up to 200 different activities and as such it is easy to see many opportunities to either Be the Realtor and or offer services to the Realtor(s) here are a few, there are many more options but this will give some ideas;

  • Become an Assistant to a successful Realtor
  • Become the Marketing Director
  • Be one of the Buyer Agents for the team
  • Be the man or woman of many trades for the real estate team
  • Do the photography and or video for a real estate team.
  • Become the Telemarketing expert, or door-knocking lead generator
  • Be the web administrator for the real estate team
  • Work as an Independent Realtor performing all the jobs of a Realtor.

As you can see there are a great number of "jobs" and careers available that require some form of expert real estate focused skills and insight. Obviously having experience in any of these fields is preferred, but often can be learned on the job.

With the Average Age of Realtors in and around Greater Victoria to be between 45 and 50 yrs. it is easy to see that for many Realtors Real Estate is their second or last career, and having some life experience is a real advantage to better understand what your potential buyers and or seller are experiencing.
