Time for a Career Change? Real Estate Agents Ranked Happiest Job of 2013

Real Estate Agent Ranked 'Happiest' Job

Having a job as a real estate agent “will bring a smile to your face,” according to CareerBliss.com. The site recently ranked the happiest jobs of 2013.

"Real estate agents have definitely weathered quite a financial storm over the past few years," says Heidi Golledge, CEO and co-founder of CareerBliss. "But right now, rates are between 2 percent to 3 percent and inventory is low, making it a real estate agent's dream as new homes hit the market and are getting multiple offers in the first week. Real estate professionals say that the way they work and the rewards they are seeing with a growing market have helped boost overall happiness for those in this career."


The firm evaluated 65,000 independent job reviews and made its rankings by taking into account the occupations’ work-life balance, compensation, growth opportunities, company reputation, job control, and work environment. Each occupation was given a “bliss rating.” The following are the top eight jobs ranked as happiest by CareerBliss.com. 

  • Real estate agent 4.26 
  • Software quality assurance engineer 4.23 
  • Senior sales representative 4.19 
  • Construction superintendent 4.10 
  • Senior Application Developer 4.08 
  • Logistics Manager 4.07 
  • Construction Manager 4.06 
  • Administrative Assistant 4.04 

Meanwhile, CareerBliss says the most unhappy in the jobs are teachers, nurses, and attorneys, mostly attributed to the higher pressures in these jobs.
