Career pivot from dentistry -> real estate? MSRE / MSRED
I am strongly considering a career change and have always had a bit of a passion for real estate. My only real experience in it though is purchasing and renovating 4 sfh and a duplex and renting / refinancing them.
I am currently a dentist and may be selling my practice and the free standing building it is in. I don't really want to practice dentistry anymore, and long term and I am considering what my options would be going forward.
My undergrad doesn't have much relevant experience, and I have a DMD degree. I am halfway through a real estate broker online course and anticipate being able to finish that as quickly as necessary.
I'm wondering, with my lack of real world experience in real estate / modeling / finance / development etc could I even break into the field? If I enrolled and somehow got into the nyi program, did multiple internships , extracurricular etc could I possibly have a shot? What is the potential career path? I assume given I don't have 1-2 years of relevant experience I'd have tod start on the lower end of the totem pole. Is there a path to a solid career given my background? Shoud I even bother chasing this pipedream?
Academically I can certainly cut it...
If this is possible and I work my ass off, what is a potential career trajectory? Am I going to have to start w some 80k job?
