I work full time as an engineer AND full time as an agent and have for quite a few years.  A lot of my "vacation" days from engineering go to real estate work (buyer showings, walkthroughs, etc.).  Sometimes the real estate hours are a bit lighter, sometimes very heavy and free time in my life becomes very scarce.  I prioritize to get things done.  Navy training comes in handy even decades later :)  Bill

The reality is none of us would agree on the definition of part time.

Some would say part-time means you have other income.

Some would say other income is more than real estate income.

Others would say one transaction a year, with a 100K pay day is part time but adds up to more than 80% of most agents annual  income.

A few would say a real estate agent with a 'stand-up routine at the Comedy Club" is not taking real estate seriously therefore not 100% committed.

Those who answered this question without asking a few questions.......?

I know of agents who work part time at some other gig, while getting their real estate off the ground. That actually might be a good thing for them because they are out there meeting people. But if they work full time at something else, I don't see how they can effectively do real estate. And, I think, there are LOTS of licensed agents in just that situation. Ideally, an agent has another income which doesn't need specific hours.

Full time for many years now.

It was part time in the beginning, because I made way better money as a DJ back in the 1990's and early 2000's. But, when I moved to San Diego in 2003, I switched gears and DJ'd on the side and went initially to 60-70 hours real estate weeks. I'm retired from the DJ world these days and I put in 50-60 hour weeks now.
