Real estate is my second career. I’ll reach the 20-year mark early next year. In honor of New Agent Month here at Inman News, I would like to welcome all the new — and newer — agents. You will be new for at least five years and will learn many things along the way.

I recently read an article about how there are more Realtors than there are homes for sale. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), total membership is now at 1.5 million Realtors, whereas homes for sale hover at 1.3 million.

[…] So for all the new agents out there, I’d like to share a few lessons I’ve learned. Here are the many things I wish I would’ve known before becoming a real estate agent.
