Just treat your clients good and the referrals will keep coming.
I work for a brokerage company, doing the marketing and webdesign etc.

I see agents come and go. Regular agents avg 3 sales a year if they're even lucky, and with all the fees and commission splits etc, there is not a whole lot to take home. The broker is the one who's racking in the money.

Just make sure you're doing real estate on the side with a backup plan. Most agent never makes it and end up getting a 9-5 job instead.
