I'd hate to be an estate agent (what do you call them in America, real estate broker?)
Showing the same shitty property over and over and over..sometimes for years!
I guess if you're in a really prosperous place it's a lot easier.
American brokers get much bigger fees than they do here in London. They're really hated here. I've had good and bad experiences of them.
Would you ever consider it as a career?
How have your experiences of them been?

It's a rewarding job if you really enjoy doing it.

I would consider it, but not as full time employment. It's far too speculative for that. But it's easy and mindless work. The buyers, sellers, banks, attorneys, and title companies have all the responsibility. The agent is just a bootlicker for everyone else involved in the deal.

The gay ones get laid a lot at the end of a showing day.

I just had a really cute one flirting with me, R3 - hence my sudden interest. I was just thinking he must get so bored.

In hot markets, like much of the U.S. is now, you can make a lot of money doing very little. You don't need a college degree, you don't even need to be very bright, just organized. It gets tough when the housing market hits a cyclic downturn, though, and the realtors I know aren't very good at planning for a rainy day.
