When I interview potential agents who would like to join our company I inevitably ask, why real estate?

The answers are varied and often about the ability to make money and have flexibility of time and scheduling.

When talking to other agents, I have found their responses to be fascinating.  Many have felt it leads to a brighter future in a quicker way.

Depending on your skill and motivation, the earning potential can be limitless.  And for those that get bored easy, an ever-changing market provides the challenge.

So why did I get into real estate?  As a young adult I was just not sure what my path was going to look like.  I wasn’t one of those people that knew at a young age how they wanted their future to look.

I came to the United States at the age of 10.  I had no English skills to speak of.  As I learned the culture and the language, my English skills improved.  I quickly discovered that I enjoyed working with the public and providing for customers’ needs.  While in retail management, I realized that I had a knack for this skill and…

I ENJOYED THE SATISFACTION OF CUSTOMER SATISFACTION

I am a person that believes that people are put in our paths for a reason.  In one of my ventures, Realtors would often visit my establishment.  They were polished professionals who seemed to know their craft and appeared to enjoy what they were doing each day.  I listened, watched them acquire multiple properties, and many became my friends. 

I knew from the beginning it would not be a get rich quick type of profession.  I knew I could be up to this challenge and learn.

I have always had a hunger and passion for knowledge.  I am a life-long learner.  I enrolled in classes, studied, and obtained my real estate license.  Once affiliated with a company, I quickly started working with 1st time buyers.  The joy of watching them be able to own something of their own, to raise a family in, and to create memories in was a feeling like no other.

Throughout the years, I have learned the intricacies of real estate.  I have learned the laws, ethics, and have learned to read and understand how to help and guide agents to be successful.  I have continued to fulfill my love for learning while working with the public.  I couldn’t have chosen a better profession to compliment my life and my desires.

WHY DID I GET INTO REAL ESTATE?

I have always been in sales.  And if if I was going to be in sales…

I WANTED TO SELL THE ULTIMATE REWARD!  TO ME, THAT IS REAL ESTATE!
