Anyone who knows me knows that I have had quite a few careers during my adult life. I’ve stocked shelves, managed a movie theatre, been to war, sold motorcycles, and waited tables. So far, I have yet to find the career that speaks to me beyond just a paycheck. Which is what leads me to my new career path, and I feel like I’ve finally found my way to the correct road.
Unfortunately, it took me years to figure it out. I started thinking about being a Real Estate Agent at least six years ago when I started looking into what it takes to become an Agent. If you’re wondering, the short answer is lots of studying and the willingness to jump out on a limb and start working for yourself. You also need a great support system, thanks, honey! If you’re reading this and you’re also considering heading down this path, then I would also say you need to find an office that is committed to your success, perhaps even more so than you are, thanks RE/MAX Legends! Luckily, I now have all of those pieces in place and am ready to get started.
You may be wondering why Real Estate, and why you should pick me out of a sea of available Realtors.
First, why real estate? There are the obvious answers, excellent earning potential, be your own boss, and tons of flexibility. However, for me, it goes back much farther and has a lot to do with my childhood. Often, my family would load up the car and drive around looking at different houses. Faux house hunting was a fun way to spend an afternoon, and I still enjoy doing that to this day. Even better was when we would visit an open house. I always find it a bit magical when you get to enter a space and imagine how you would make it work for yourself. Which is why I think Real Estate is so fun, it allows you to open your imagination and create a unique vision belongs to you. Even if the home doesn’t work for you, I still find it fun to talk about how you could transform it for your needs, sometimes that may mean tearing down all the walls and starting over, but that’s ok as long as it works!
Finally, why me? First, I genuinely like the process. Visiting different homes and neighborhoods is just plain fun. So, I will be more than happy to show you that umpteenth house. Second, I like to problem solve. I will be there for you, and I will do everything I can to help you hurdle whatever may come up. Third, I want to make this work more than anything else I have ever done, and the best way to make that happen is through helping you. I can only succeed with your help, through referrals and repeat business and the only way I know how to get those is by taking the absolute best care of every person I work worth.
So, let’s do this. I am here to help. Whether you are buying, selling, or just have a question, feel free to reach out any time.
