Southwest Florida is a bustling real estate hub, with more than 9,300 active agents and brokers in Lee County, 6,200 in Collier and 2,800 in Charlotte; but a growing number of them are in their 20’s and 30’s.
Many young people are attracted to the open-ended nature of property sales, with no boss to report to but themselves; and their familiarity with social media and Internet savvy gives them a bit of an edge in the field.
“They’re on top of the tech stuff,” says broker/associate Steve Koffman of Century 21 Sunbelt in Cape Coral. Koffman says about a quarter of the 18 agents on his team are under the age of 33.
