A real estate company can be a lucrative business, but to delve into the world of real estate requires planning and forethought.

Step 1: Decide if you want to become a real estate agent or hire an agent. Either way, a broker must be in charge of the real estate of the company.

Step 2: Decide if you want to buy a franchise or start an independent real estate company.

Step 3: Find a location for your business. A real estate company must have a high visibility in a busy street, as people often enter into a real estate office in the heat of the moment when they need it.

Step 4: You must obtain a business license in your city. See which other requirements exist for the creation of a new business.

Step 5: Contact the local board of realtors and become a member. Membership gives you access to the latest laws and industry regulations.

Step 6: Make yourself known in the community to join the visitors in the local real estate agents.

Step 7: Become a member of the local chamber of commerce.

Step 8: Look for the union of Realtors. Select agents that have the same goals and work ethics as you do.

Step 9: Receive listings (sold properties).

Step 10: launch to market your business and put your ads.
