It's often said that being a real estate agent is like being a tech entrepreneur. The vast majority of agents fail within just a few years because they're essentially launching their own business where they have to take care of everything from marketing/lead gen to legal documents.
Home61 uses automation and a startup accelerator-like training program that teaches agents how to be more efficient with technology. Their agents make $70K in their second year, which is nearly 8x the industry average of $8,930/year for agents with less than two years of experience.
