I just want to extend to all my past, present and future customers a very BIG Thank you!
I have been in the real estate business now for over 8 years and can STILL say, without a doubt, I LOVE MY JOB.
MANY days I walk out the door with a smile on my face and think, what am I going to learn today. Every single day is a learning experience for me. Very seldom is one day the same as the last and every deal is different, even if it’s a small one. I have meant some very awesome people.
The people who touch my heart everyday, some good, some bad, have helped shape and mold me into a great Realtor. Thank You so much for that. I also work with some very Great people. I have an awesome boss, who I can also call my friend. I have the best office “Roomie” too. He is Birdog and I am Catdog. Together we are the dog pound! My co-workers and I share great friendships, lots of loyalty, and total trust. We are genuinely happy for each other and encourage each other. We have a very strong Christian based organization that isn’t afraid to pray before our meals and pray for each other.
In this business, many people are very misconceived about us. We put in very long hours, miss a lot of family time, use our own cars and use our own gas to go to a LOT of nowhere!!! Everyday when I go to the office, I’m not receiving a paycheck. Did you know that? I don’t receive a paycheck when I’m showing you property. I don’t receive a paycheck when I’m writing up your offer, or talking to your lender, helping to sometimes retrieve more paperwork from you, or the emails and phone calls with your closing attorney. I don’t receive a paycheck thru all the countless hours, well into my evening hours I’m looking up property or answering emails. I don’t receive a paycheck when someone calls and wants to see a house and then never heard from again. No, I don’t receive my paycheck until we’re all sitting down at the closing table and that ever so hard working attorney hands me my check. Do you think I get ALL that check? No, I don’t. I only receive a portion of it. But do you know what? I do do it because I LOVE MY JOB and I love my clients. I think I have one of the most rewarding jobs out there.
Next time you talk to me, please have a smile in your voice and thank a Realtor. In my neck of the woods we certainly don’t do it for the pay. But I do do it for YOU!
