i am interested in becoming a real estate sales agent, what are the skills need other than sales technique? Also will i need a license or certificate to become one? What are the commission rates? How long will it to get a license or certificate?
First you will have to take a real estate class approved by your state real estate commission, the length of time depends on the state and the amount of hours per week the class runs, can take from two weeks to a month or so
then once you pass, you sit and take the state license, once you pass then in most states you look to find a real estate office that is willing to let you hand your license
on the commission it is usually work out between you and the broker, can be any where from 50/50 to 70/30
