How would a real estate job work with being a mom?

I've been considering becoming a residential real estate agent once my daughter turns one. I love real estate so I think I may enjoy this work. I thought the hours would mostly be evenings and weekends, that way hubby could take care of our daughter while I'm at work and I can take care of her during the day. I realize I might have to have some childcare occasionally during the days if a client needs my help at that time. Does anyone have any experience working in real estate? Do my expectations sound realistic?

You will need day care. 95% of the work is Mon-Fri 9-5. Where did you get the idea it was nights and weekends? Almost everything you deal with will be normal business hours, when the banks, the title companies, the inspectors, the appraisers etc all work... More

Wrong the hours are mostly Saturday and Sunday. Open house is Wednesday and Sunday from 9 till 5 So this will not suit your schedule
