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 – more... 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. – less
