I'm hoping now that this question is being asked a third time it's not that you forgot that you asked, but that the AR gremlins are back at work.

3 of 3 - I work for an independent brokerage & make more than all the other agents in my area. What's better than that? We can build our own teams & get residual income from agents we bring in. What's better than that? The company is doing so well we have more agents than all the franchises in the area! Saving for retirement has a lot to do with how well you save your money! People like to over spend; cut down your spending & work hard & you'll have plenty!

This is a mandatory question needing an answer. Most agents I know... know the following: Buy something and rent it out. There is your retirement

If you have the latter, it is much easier to get optimum results with the former. A long-term game plan and $$ safety net allows you to be far more selective with intake.

You have asked this question three times. 

Many real estate agents can't afford to retire.

And again, I represent both buyers and sellers but, have no idea how many agents in my area only represent sellers.

Yes, I don't mind at all sharing that real estate is in my investment portfolio. I believe in what I sell!

I think the majority of real estate agents have all they can do to live from month to month and continue to pay their bills....at least, that's what I'm seeing from most in today's extreme seller's market....

Well that worked lol.  I not sure why it posted 3 times but I like the results. As for the statement MOST AGENTS CAN'T AFFORD TO RETIRE!  All the more reason to learn the EXP Realty Opportunity and Why 5500 Agents in 46 States and some of the Highest Producing Teams around the USA have switched over.  Just saying!  The New Real Estate Brokerage of the Future!   Message if you want to compare brokerages!

I do not know the numbers. I know getting real estate to work for you creates a great investment plan. I bought my first rental house in 1985.
