Is being an FA similar to being a RE Agent?

Dec 21, 2008 1:13 am

Yes, exactly the same.

Yup, and you don't even have to study for the exam.

Yep, except our investments can sometimes go down in price, unlike real estate.

Not if you're in an index annuity...(had to throw that in there)

These guys are messing with you.  Being an FA is nothing like being a RE Agent.  I know a lot of RE Agents, and some of my family members are RE Agents.

 
Most FA's consider RE Agents a joke.  It's just a lot different managing people's life savings, than it is listing there home.  At least you have sales experience.

Pretty much.  Except we look for long-term relationships whereas realtors generally look for one-night stands......

 
Oh, and you'll have to work at this career just a wee bit harder, too.
