@Paul S. - Thanks for the quick and thoughtful response, I will definitely heed your sound advice.
I don't have my license yet but I will start working on that very soon. I was aware of the CCIM courses but never gave it much thought at the time. Now, I think it's the next logical step to take.
I have read a lot about commercial real estate in the past year and everything about it turns me on. It's definitely a passion of mine that I want to take to the next level. I'm absorbing all the material that I'm reading and the language of commercial real estate like a sponge.
So, I will pursue my licensing and enroll in the intro CCIM courses and if I still love it then I will interview with brokerage houses until I find the right fit for me. Great advice thanks Paul.
I have found the following books very helpful
Commercial Real Estate Analysis & Investments, by Geltner et. al.
How to Succeed in Commercial Real Estate, by John Bowman
and of course, How to Win Friends and Influence People, by Dale Carnegie
Are there any books out there that will help me begin my career in commercial? Are there any books that have changed the trajectory of your lives or taken your career to new heights? That's probably a discussion for another thread but I love to read and I love to learn so I thought I would ask this here as well
