Publicly-Available National Report Provides Key Findings Including a
Correlation Between Continuing Education, Job Satisfaction and Income

Real
Estate Express
, the national leader in online pre-licensing real
estate education, today announced the immediate availability of the
results from a comprehensive national survey of more than 1,000 active
real estate agents. The report reveals that real estate professionals
are highly satisfied with their career and market outlook. Specific
details of income potential by various categories including age, years
of experience and brokerage type are provided in the report.

The survey found that agents who invest in their education and stay
up-to-date on industry trends and best practices earn approximately 2.5
times the income of agents who are complacent. The survey
also unveiled that when it comes to career satisfaction agents are 28
percent more satisfied than American workers in non-real estate
professions. Additionally, agents are optimistic about their career,
with 80 percent of agents and 85 percent of brokers indicating that the
future looks bright. The real estate survey also discovered that, while
a wage gap between male and female agents exists, it is six percent less
than non-real estate professions.

"The highest earners in this field share many commonalities," said Tom
Davidson, General Manager of Real Estate Express. "Networking,
marketing, an in-depth understanding of client needs, the ability to
customize listings, participate in ongoing education, and have a
specific area of expertise are attributes the top earners share. This
report is great reading for anyone in the field of real estate or who
may be thinking about starting a career in this fast-growing market."

"This is a great career with virtually unlimited income potential," said
Elaine Price at Price Realty Group. "The combination of flexible hours,
a strong economy, access to online continuing education courses and the
ability to help people find their dream homes make real estate an ideal
profession. Real Estate Express courses have been extremely beneficial
to my career, which includes buying and selling residential properties
in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex."

The report also unveiled that more than 50 percent of agents changed
brokerage firms in their career and more than 80 percent of brokerage
firms are hiring in 2018. However, less than 18 percent of brokerage
firms offer benefits. This is further complicated by the fact that great
agents are in high demand, especially those who exhibit superior client
experience, possess a deep understanding of their local market, can
embrace new technologies and stay current on best practices.

"Essentially, brokers are facing the same challenge as the technology
industry; we are looking to work with a team of brilliant,
forward-thinking, savvy go-getters," said Michelle Walker, Broker Owner
of STL Buy & Sell, REALTORS®. "We are competing for the same great
agents who are driven by unlimited income potential and understand the
importance of continuing education. At STL Buy & Sell Realtors we can
recruit and retain awesome agents because we have a hyperlocal approach
and offer benefits that set us apart from the competition."

Real Estate Express, along with McKissock and The Institute for Luxury
Home Marketing, is part of the family of brands under Colibri Group, an
online education company with six leading brands that provide learning
solutions to licensed professionals.
