At Steve Volkers Group, we typically don't hire people who don't plan on making real estate their full-time job...Why?

We want a crew that's all-in and fully committed. Some crew members have transitioned from a full-time 9-5 job into real estate, and our biggest piece of advice is always this: keep your real estate money and your other income completely separate.

This allows your real estate account to grow, which better equips you to move away from your full-time job and jump into real estate with some money saved already.
