December 2016: Fixed issue with incorrect bonus at levels 9 & 10. Thank to PanAm103 for reporting this! :D



Meet Andy Anderson!


Andy had always thought a career in the real estate business would be exciting. Plus, it would certainly pay well, right? Enough to move out of the apartment complex, that's for sure. Maybe even a sports car? Well perhaps if a real estate career came with The Sims 2, poor Andy could afford these things!

Fortunately, I set about creating just such a career for poor Andy, so he could fulfill the dream he had since creation.... about four days ago.



About This Career

  • No uniform required. I prefer to change my Sims' clothes daily. So just change into formal gear before work and you're set!
  • Realistic pay and working hours. This means 9am-5pm most days. :P
  • Non-ugly carpools, even at lower career levels.
  • Slower motive decay than Maxis careers. I find it unrealistic to think that a sim would not drink or pee during work hours.
  • Chance cards included at each level.
  • No friends requirement. I find it a bit of an unrealistic requirement. (Added a version with a friend req.)
  • Includes a new Icon Set!
  • Putting Green career reward.














EP-Ready. Must have one ep installed in order for this career to work.

And of course, Andy Anderson and Carla Gianluca for testing the career.

This is the first career in awhile that has made me want to download and try it out, I love they dont have to be in uniform, and also the no firends requirement! (always cheat there anyway!) looks very interesting, thankyou for sharing.

This is the first time I'm really interested in downloading a custom career! It's a good idea, thanks for sharing.

I'm with the others, I just don't download custom careers, but this one is too good to pass up! I love that there are chance cards and a career reward (and the no friends thing is awesome, too, but I already have a mod that eliminates that on all the other careers). I do have one question, though. Does this career show up in LTW's? Like, do fortune and popularity/pleasure sims get the LTW to "Reach the top of the Real Estate career?" Just curious.

Hi Neonhorn!

Unfortunately a LTW for reaching the top of this career will not be rolled by your Sims. I'd actually never thought about it until I read your comment, and then I spent about 30 mins researching ways to try and do it. But apparently, it either cannot be done or I didn't research hard enough!
If I do ever find a way to to create a LTW, I'll definitely come back and add it!

Thanks for downloading, and I hope you have as much with Real Estate as I have. :D

(p.s. I also use a mod the eliminate the friends requirement. It's so silly!)

No worries! I'm still going to add this career to my sims' lineups. It'll mash up real nice with the fortune sims who want to "Earn $100,000" or my sims that have the 20 best friend want. Let's face it, real estate agents are normally pretty chatty and gregarious people! :D

Hi Ryan, I'm not quite sure what that error is, I've never seen it before. However, I've tried downloading it myself from two different computers and it's working fine now. If you want to try it again now and see if it will allow you to do so, and perhaps get back to me.

Hoping you can download and play soon,
Sarah.

Hello, I liked your career very much and it's nice of you to include a teen\elder version! I'm happy about it.

Can I please ask you to make its alternative version with friends requirement? The reason is that otherwise topping the career is too easy. And friends could be thought of as clients.

Appearance of new careers on this site is what keeps me playing the game after so many years, so thank you a lot

Hi Babahara,

I can indeed add the friends requirement for you, it's very simple to do. Have you any particular number of required friends in mind, or would the maxis-average be okay?

Regards,
Sarah.

#14 Old 18th May 2014 at 12:44 AM
Maxis average would be fine, thank you!

I hope you'll make more careers for us. I'll certainly download. If you have time and desire, of course, I'm aware that it takes a lot of time to write the chance cards, so it would be unfair to ask.

Thanks again.

You're all set! You can now spend hours making friends to your (Sims') heart's content!

And I am currently working on a couple of other careers, at the moment. But those darn chance cards take a while!
Look out for my next 'Florist' career! (Hopefully soon)

Thanks, Sarah, I downloaded the alternative version and am going to put it to good use.

A florist career sounds amazing! I already know who of my sims is going to have it. In truth, somehow your ideas happen to nicely coincide with my desires. I was in need of a few careers, among them something to deal with real estate and flowers\plants.

Thanks, I am so glad you added the with friends file because my husband was in real estate, and who you know and are friends with does make a difference in this career. The hours are not 5 days a week and 9-5 either. They are actually at the whim and needs of the client. Thanks again I am sure I will enjoy this. Maybe a career for my romance sim?

Is there still a chance to see a florist career? My sim is still waiting for it

Super late to the party, but does this replace any existing / custom careers? Does it have a custom GUID?

Not-so-daily TS2 downloads @ my simblr.

Hi Babahara, I actually do have that complete, I just never uploaded it!
I'm going to make sure it's up to scratch and I'll submit it, so hopefully you'll see it available to download in the next couple of days!

Hi Siletka, it does indeed have it's own unique GUID, so it won't overwrite anything.

Hi, that's great! I've been putting aside playing the sim that I wanted to have that career. Her time has come
