What Could Your Life Look Like In 5 Years?

Ever wondered how much different your life might look in 5 years if you started real estate today?

Well, let’s do an experiment, shall we? Don’t worry this will only take a couple of minutes… and there are no release forms to sign.

Real Estate:

Imagine for a minute that you went and immediately started the process to get your license. If you were determined, in just a couple of months, you could have your classes completed, take your exam, and be signed up with us at Keller Williams. 

From here, you would want to begin taking some amazing real estate sales-specific training courses with a great company… aka Keller Williams Realty, and start laying the groundwork for your real estate business. You would start selling houses with the only limit being your commitment to doing the right activities over and over again! We have seen some people sell a few houses their first year while others knock it out of the park and sell 20+ in year one!

In your second year, your confidence and skills would grow because you would start getting the hang of it. As a result, you’d see your results increase from year one to year two. In fact, you might be so busy that you hire your first administrative assistant so you can focus more on your high-income producing activities.

Things are looking up!


If you stay with your current job, things might go well, and the pay could be good, but you might feel dissatisfied or even slightly bored. What’s even worse, you work hard, but each year you keep making the same amount as the year before.

Basically, if you stay with your job you are looking at more of the same. Sure it may be easier, but it may not be nearly as rewarding as building a future for you and your family. 

Real Estate:

Now you are in your 3rd year of real estate and are rocking and rolling. Your database of past and current clients is growing and growing and now more of your business is actually coming from referrals rather than you having to prospect. You are starting to grow a small team by adding another administrative assistant and your first buyer’s agent so you can focus more on working with sellers – the true leveraged activity.

As your team grows, your income and quality of life continue to grow as well.

By year 5, you are running your own real estate team and have converted your job into a true real estate business.

Best of all, you are in control of your time, your income, and your future.


5 years later you are still working for the same company, although perhaps you received a promotion so your job is slightly different now and you’re making a little more money. Life isn’t too bad, but it’s not as good as it could be either. And you can’t stop wondering where you might be if you had started doing real estate five years ago…


Take some time to think about these two paths and apply them to your situation. Which one of these sounds better to you? Remember, if you don’t do something to change, then your life won’t change either. You could either make the leap and get started with your new life or put it off and wait… and wait… and wait…

Don’t be the person 5 years from now who wonders what could have been. A great life is possible for you sooner than you might have imagined. Getting started in real estate is a big step, but it’s one you won’t regret.

At Keller Williams, we specialize in helping people make the scary leap of faith into real estate. So, embrace the fear, grab a cup of courage and let’s get going. You got this!
