You vs. Your Career – Who’s in Control?

There’s a lot of talk today about achieving work-life balance, that imaginary equilibrium that combines the perfect amount of work with the perfect amount of real life. With so many ways for work to follow you home – laptops, text messages, chat messages, and, of course, phone calls – it can be difficult to figure out where work ends and life begins.


The key to real balance may be finding a job that fits your life, rather than building your life around your job. That’s exactly why so many people enjoy a career as a Realtor. Working in real estate offers many advantages: You set your own hours, you decide how much money you make, and you can even choose where your office is on any given day.  But with so many real estate companies out there, how do you decide which one to call home? A company like LAH Real Estate gives you a significant advantage, whether you are just starting out or an experienced Realtor looking for a change of pace.


The Real Estate Agent Starter Kit

First things first. You can’t sell real estate without a license, training, and a solid support system. The LAH School of Real Estate offers convenient online courses designed to teach their students to pass the licensing exam the first time. Additionally, LAH Real Estate’s experienced Brokers offer in-house training as well as leadership programs to keep you on top of this rapidly evolving industry.  Also, unlike many companies that pit their agents against each other to increase sales, LAH seems to have successfully curated a “family” of agents who support each other – although, a little bit of friendly competition can make things more exciting.


Helping You Market You

Experienced or not, personal marketing is probably the biggest hurdle to overcome for Realtors.  For some, it can be extremely time-consuming and mentally taxing.  But even if you are a marketing guru, it can be expensive. If anything sets LAH apart from other companies, it is their in-house Marketing Department. They really can do it all and more!

Many real estate companies force their agents to conform to their bland, corporate format, but the LAH Marketing Department can help you make your vision for your business a dream come true. Let’s face it, in an endless sea of excessively boring business cards, flyers and brochures, wouldn’t you want yours to stand out? Not only do they save you the cost of hiring a graphic designer (and the cost of aspirin that can sometimes go along with that), they save you time.


Lots & Land and Lots of Sand

Before you label LAH Real Estate as strictly residential, you should know they offer much more than just a bunch of houses. You may be more interested in joining their Commercial office. After all, every business needs a home. Or how about a career with a view? Their Beach office on 30A in Santa Rosa Beach can be a great place to dip your toe into real estate. It’s also a fantastic resource to Birmingham LAH agents for referrals. No matter what kind of real estate you’re trying to sell, LAH has a sign for that.


Life Changing Experiences

There are lots of advantages of being a Realtor, particularly at LAH, but one of the greatest rewards is the huge sense of purpose helping others. You have the opportunity to work closely with individuals and families as they search for their first home, their dream home, relocate for a new job opportunity, or downsize for retirement.


If you think you’re the kind of person who would enjoy making a difference in people’s lives, then why not make a difference in your own? Whether you’re eager to find more time for yourself without sacrificing income or you’re just ready to break out of the cubicle walls and the 9-to-5 grind, it’s your time. Be your own boss! Join LAH today.
