Yes, being a Realtor can be worth your time and effort AND it can be financially rewarding. It does however require many hours for one to be successful. I’ve been a Realtor for 4 years and have had great success selling in a city/area with population of over 1 million.
On the side, I buy 4-5 houses per year and figure that in nine years, when I’m 40, I can retire with a portfolio of over 50 houses all free and clear. Perhaps I’d be better off if my first priority was investing, but I live well off my commissions, and every penny I make on my properties, is paying off my 15 year notes in 4-7 years
