What is the most rewarding aspect of your job, least rewarding? What might you change? Would you choose this career again? "The most rewarding aspect for this job would be helping people to become homeowner, handing someone a key is what makes it rewarding for me. Not to mention the payment after a sell, since I was still young those two things were really the most important aspect for me in real estate. The least rewarding for me was telling a client they did not qualify for a house and have to be turn down. What might you change? I said the competition, but there is no way you can change that. That was the only reason why I left real estate. Would you choose this career again? Yes, I would if this economy wasn’t this poor because the reward in real estate is excellent. But right now I would like to try something in construction instead.”
