I was talking to a guy who works as a sales rep at the cable company I work for. He used to be a real estate agent, and now he is an investor. He told me the best way to learn is to hook up with a commercial broker or a good broker.
I have thought about becoming a commercial real estate agent broker. I thought about it and after I heard deals take longer to do and they dont make more money than residential agents necessarily. I thought residential would be a good place to start. But now i left the firm that I was working with because of circumstance.
But I do remember in commercial them discussing the Triple Net lease the stuff that is normally mentioned in real estate investing books. So, I am thinking by working in commercial we may get investing concepts ingrained in us? Business people will do leases. Apartments generally fall under commercial I am thinking.
So does becomimg a commercial agent help y0u become more knowledge in real estate investing in general? If so I will go try to become a commercial agent so I can pick up real estate investing more easily.
How many of you are commercial agents or brokers?
