I know someone who had made it big as a broker. He was an average guy during his younger days. He was not even popular. But he had already acquired properties and had become rich. He had become successful probably buying and selling properties like that from Outer banks foreclosures being based in the US.
I can never be a broker. I suck at selling. I am very poor when it comes to being a sales agent or a salesman. How could I fare in being a broker then? This triggered an interest to know what exactly a broker is. From Dictionary.com, I got these meanings:
- an agent who buys or sells for a principal on a commission basis without having title to the property.
- person who functions as an intermediary between two or more parties in negotiating agreements, bargains, or the like.
- stockbroker – a broker, esp. one employed by a member firm of a stock exchange, who buys and sells stocks and other securities for customers.
Still, I could not imagine myself being an agent that is why I will never be rich. 😀
