It’s that time of year again. Chicago’s rental services are advertising heavily at Craigslist, touting six-figure incomes, unlimited earnings potential, the start of a lucrative career leasing luxury apartments, etc. etc.
Why aren’t the many licensed, experienced real estate agents who currently earn next-to-nothing flocking to those well-paying positions as the rental season heats up? Short answer: they know better.
Why aren’t the many experienced leasing agents at luxury high-rises who earn less than six figures applying for those positions? Short answer: see the previous answer.
Why do the rental services advertise such minimal qualifications for those lucrative careers? Short answer: anyone who qualifies for a real job is unlikely to apply.
