It is exciting to finally acquire your real estate license, even if you have worked in a similar position for some time. But once you have your own license, it is time to move up the ladder. Before you select a broker and learn further about the neighborhood, you need to do one more thing – prepare your resume. The work isn’t going anywhere so there really isn’t any hurry to do anything. Your resume is what will help you “hang” your license in a broker’s office, which will eventually get you the job. Yes, you do have to hang your license for some years before you can go out and declare yourself an independent broker.
Prior to obtaining your real estate agent license, you must have had some kind of internship or experience in real estate work. Make sure that your resume reflects this information. Even if it was an internship or a job that you held as a real estate agent’s assistant, it will suffice. Even if your job was to handle office work initially, this information will prove valuable to a broker who is looking for some kind of related experience in your resume. As an intern, you may have accompanied the broker or other real estate agents on calls, so you are probably not new to customer interaction. Make all this information obvious.
Here is a sample new real estate agent resume with no experience that you can use:
