Pros: flexible schedule, everyday is different, always meeting new people.
Cons: if a deal was being negotiated it sometimes lead to unexpectedly working very long hours.
I was hired by a private real estate team to manage all of their listing, sales contracts and appointments while studying in law. Working for Remax was a great experience for me as I gained first hand experience in real estate law and was in charge of the contracts and finalizing deals with notaries.
My bosses trusted me so it allowed them to take long vacations during the summer and gave me the opportunity to run an office.
In real estate a deal can happen at any time and our team was always available to meet with clients, this can lead to long hours and late nights but it also allowed for a more flexible schedule.
I enjoyed the team I worked with, the clients I met everyday and the challenges I was given to gain hands on experience while being in school.
