Lots of active RE Agents & Brokers invest constantly for themselves. As long as your licensed status is fully divulged, you engage in no fraud, and you don’t mistreat people, you’ll be OK.
It is important to select a Broker & office which you respect as being honest & knowledgeable, so you will be able to watch & learn as you work. A good Broker, being absolutely and fully responsible for his/her agents, isn’t going to let you do anything crooked or that could possibly be damaging to him. Or you.
In the world of commercial RE, you’ll find that most Agents & Brokers spend lots of time on their own deals, and being licensed is very beneficial to them/us, in that it constantly brings new RE & deals by us so we get a first pick.
