The unclean air and restrained life finally take their toll on your health.
Life of a real estate agent, especially in a city like Chicago is difficult to say the least. Though prima facie it might seem that being a realtor in Chicago, a city with a huge population and thousands of real estate deals is a lucrative profession; the real scenario is exactly opposite. Since it looks like a profession with high returns, a large number of people aspire to be real estate agents. However, soon they realize that being a realtor is not everyone’s cup of tea and it takes more than the information about the property listings to be successful in the profession.
