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.

Do my expectations sound realistic?
