    I have been working at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Learned all about the behind the scenes process of Real Estate. All I knew beforehand was searching for houses online, finding a house for my family and showing up for closing and signing lots of documents.

    Cons

    Perfect part-time job. The Operations Manager and Managing Broker run a tight but fun ship!

    More career opportunities/challenging roles for nonrealtors.
