Dear (Mr. or Ms.) (Last Name),
For years I have been interested in becoming a real estate agent and believe that this is the right market for my dream to come true! I wanted to talk with you about the possibility of an internship for some real-life experience as I seek my license.
Among the qualities I offer that I know are vital to the success of a real estate agent are my persistence, professionalism, strong work ethic, and results-driven approach to work. For the past four years I have been an assistant at a financial services company, Dain Bosworth, so I am familiar with a high-pressure sales environment.
Though I have not worked in the real estate industry, I am one of those “weekend open house warriors,” who delights in visiting open houses, perusing listings and knowing as much as I can about the market. This interest, combined with my instincts and exceptional people skills, ensures that I would be a valued support to you as I learn more about the business in a hands-on capacity.
Attached is my resume. I look forward to meeting with you to learn more about opportunities in your office. I will touch base with you next week to talk more about the possibility of affiliating with your dynamic and prestigious firm.
Thank you for your consideration.
