Real Estate Careers

There are many opportunities for those interested in pursuing a career in the real estate industry. A career in real estate can be very rewarding but, as with any career choice, your decision to pursue real estate requires careful consideration.

The majority of real estate agents in BC are selling real estate, managing properties, or providing trading services. That being said, real estate offers a wide variety of specialties from residential and/or commercial sales to property and strata management, investment real estate to land development, counselling and research to mortgage financing and appraisals.
