Being a real estate agent is exciting, whether it's part-time or full-time.

The percentage of commission you would earn is based on your contract with the real estate company of your choosing. Once you're licensed, you can work with any licensed brokerage that you wish, and even switch between companies as you see fit. You have independence as an agent.
