In fact, real estate agents are often reported as some of the most satisfied workers in the United States. And according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the need for professionals in the real estate industry is growing. By 2026, the job market will see an increase of 14% for appraisers and assessors, 10% for property managers, and 6% for realtors.*
