Associate (Current Employee), New York, NY – November 18, 2015
Pros: Exciting, fast paced, meet new people every day
Cons: There is a slow season, and it is very very slow
Working in real estate, particularly apartment rentals in manhattan, is liberating and gratifying. The compensation is purely commission and can be very rewarding but requires a lot of time and patience. No 2 days are the same as you meet different people and walk through various neighborhoods and at times it can be over whelming but it is quite the learning experience. A lot of people say "you become a slave to your phone" but we are in an age where that has become the case for any and everybody, so its not that huge of an adjustment.
