Illinois Leasing Agent or Illinois Broker: Which Should You Be?

If you're a self starter, Motivated, Ambitious, Flexible, Personable, Professional, Easy going, Just starting out

You should be: An Illinois leasing agent

Why?: The leasing agent profession is fairly low key and flexible. You're in charge of your own schedule and all of your clients, so largely you are your own boss. Since leasing Illinois agents primarily handle residential rentals, you must know how to deal with young college students, young professionals and young families.
If you’re Leader of the Pack, Organized, Competitive, Self Fulfilled, A problem solver, Dedicated, Articulate, Knowledgeable (especially about Real Estate)

You should be: An Illinois Real Estate Broker

Why?: The broker position is for individuals looking to become more involved in the real estate industry. Once you upgrade to a broker’s license, you gain the ability to not only rent, but sell both residential and commercial property. This means a lot more responsibility, a lot more organization and a lot more money!
