Often on this forum it's discussed how difficult it is to truly break into CRE sales and how high the turnover is. Everyone has a couple producers at their offices breaking 7 figures but, it seems as if it's truly a grind to break the 6 figure mark and that the average good producer down the line make 200-300k (if you make it that far). While also not yet mentioning how low the pay in the beginning is.
Yet, in software sales it's very common to have a base of 50K with bonus of 25K starting. Within a year the promotion is generally to account executive and I know multiple people that are making 200K plus 3-4 years out of college, some with stock options. In software sales it seems as more people are making more money out of college than cre sales and by a significant amount, while also having better hours and not having to abide by such a stiff corporate culture.
Don't get me wrong, I've always been interested in cre sales as a career but, when I'm having more and more friends getting into the tech sales space, it makes cre sales seem less appealing. This is just a thought and interested in what're you're perspectives.
