How Should I Get Started in Real Estate?

The title of this newsletter is a common question.

And the answer is really simple.

It doesn’t matter.


I tell people this all the time. How you get started in real estate really doesn’t matter. The key is just getting started doing something.


Because once you get into the real estate world, you’ll find out over time what interests you the most. Just get involved somewhere.

Sometimes people overthink where & how to get started and I remind them that the where & how don’t matter that much.

Here are ways people might get started:

  • Multi-family
  • Development
  • Commercial Brokerage

The list could go on.

Perhaps a great way to choose is to find someone you know & respect that is involved in real estate. Take them out to lunch & ask them to tell you more about what they do. Maybe they’ll offer you the opportunity to tag along & learn from them. That could be a great entry point.

The key is just getting started somewhere.

And it’s likely that where you get started is not where you’ll end up.

You’ll start to learn about various aspects of real estate & then you’ll gravitate toward what interests you the most.

Don’t overthink it.

Just get started.

Anywhere is fine.

Then you’ll find your niche along the way.
