I love looking at real estate.  Truth be told, I've passed the real estate exam and obtained my license here in NH 3 times.  Never went in to it full time because..... radio, but maybe when I retire, I'll give it a whirl..... AGAIN.  Also, it takes a lot of work to be a successful real estate agent.  You have to get your face/name out there all the time, follow up, etc., etc.  It's not as easy as people think.  A good agent really does earn that fat check at the closing.
