I'm the same way. I have worked in Property Management for many years and never had much desire to be a sales agent/broker. There are many other opportunities to be involved in real estate. As you may already know there are two sides: the buyer side and the seller side. There is residential real estate, commercial, industrial, etc. On the buyer's side, particularly in commercial real estate, you could be an analyst (deciding whether or not a real estate investment is viable), broker, or a private investor. With my current company we purchase and manage residential (apartments) and commercial real estate as well as some development. There is a need for analysts and brokers in all aspects of acquiring these types of properties and then leasing managers to find lessees who need an apartment or office space; which is where our revenue comes from.
