When I first became a REALTOR®, I never imagined how rewarding it could be. After a long-standing career as a court reporter, I found my true passion in real estate. Real estate is challenging, and I work for clients during an emotional time, but it is also incredibly rewarding. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I wanted to say thank you to my clients for putting their trust in me and share the many reasons I’m thankful I’m in real estate.
Real Estate is Meaningful. A home is one of the most important aspects of a person’s life. It represents security, family and sense of self. Home ownership is the “American Dream,” and I get to help people make their dreams come true.
I meet people from many walks of life. Everyone needs a home. As an agent, I am fortunate to have the opportunity to help people of all different backgrounds and stages of life. It is a wonderful way to make someone’s life happier and fuller.
Real estate is full of opportunities to get to know your community. As a REALTOR®, I have been able to put down deep roots in my community and help make it better, one house at a time.
It’s flexible. Although I may have to work weekends or take calls at all hours of the day, I can also be at events for family and friends or spend the day at a community festival. Also, I can work from anywhere!
It’s fun. Whether you’re attending a conference, touring an incredible property, hosting an Open House, or handing over the keys to a happy home buyer, real estate is full of fun moments. I wouldn’t trade it for anything!
My colleagues are amazing. They are some of the hardest working, smartest and most caring people out there. I am proud to work with these amazing people and call them not just colleagues but friends.
My Clients. I am humbled by the trust that my clients put in me and dedicated to exceeding their expectations. I am thankful that my clients are more than just clients, but lifelong friends. Although my job is in real estate, my business is in building relationships. I am thankful for every one of these relationships.
I’m counting my many blessings this Thanksgiving and thankful for this wondrous career, not just today but every day. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
