Should I Become a Real Estate Agent? – 19 years old

Hi all, I wanted to make a post asking for general advice on if I should pursue becoming a Real Estate Agent or not. The question arises not only because of me being 19 (leading me to believe people won’t take me seriously) but also because of the fact that I don’t think I’ll commit exclusively to the industry.

I’ve always liked doing many things at once, I’m a graphic designer and video editor and have spent the last year simply working. I work part-time in 2 ad/marketing agencies, also working as a YouTube video editor freelance, also a full time job as a cashier at a hotel, and all of this while doing a Bachelor’s degree on Business/Marketing. I fear that becoming a successful real estate agent requires lots of exclusive time to dedicated to it, and I simply am very short on time. I don’t think I’m willing to drop everything I have going on to pursue real estate full time because I’m fairly passionate for the video editing/graphic design part of my life and the cashier job is paying me really good money ($35k compared to Puerto Rico’s average salary of 20-25k).

I’m at the point of my life that I’m making really good money for a 19 year old in Puerto Rico, yet I’m hungry for me and I feel unable to scale upwards, cash flow has been the same for about a year and all my investments (stocks/crypto) haven’t really helped, since the market has been so red since nov 2021. I’m seeing real estate as an opportunity to start a new chapter and pursue a different career, but I’m scared of throwing everything away just for it to not work out because no one wants a 19 year old unexperienced realtor.

So the question is, despite being 19 and not being able to commit fully to the industry, should I even waste my time pursuing this? Or should I go through with it and hope my experience in marketing and video editing will compensate for my young age?
