SONY DSCWhy I Love Being a Realtor

My plan coming out of college was to be a real estate agent long enough to put myself through graduate school. I did just that, and after four years of night school I had a freshly minted MBA and no desire to do anything else but to continue on my path in real estate. Sixteen years later (24 in all), I still feel the same way.  I’m really lucky to love going to work every day and here is why. I get to work with great people. I get to be creative, I get to work for myself and…

Each day I am responsible for putting forth a professional effort in an increasingly competitive market. The perks are many and as you can see the variety and scope of what I do are large.  I’m apt to work seven days a week for weeks on end, answer work emails at 11 pm, take business calls at 7:30 in the morning. But I also get to arrange my schedule so that I can watch most of my kids games and go on vacation without asking for permission. The responsibility to my clients and my personal code of excellence are my only boss. And I wouldn’t have it any other way!
