In It for the Money??

In recent meetings with clients, they've told me about friends or people on social media who are talking about becoming a realtor or a mortgage brokers as a great way to make money.  Well, it is a job, but...

I'm not aware of any successful realtor who got into it "for the money."  We chose it as maybe like me, we always liked real estate.  I started getting interested at about 10 years old because my Dad was.  I even helped my parents find a house to buy when I was just 13!  Combine that interest with a love of problem solving, using my business experience to create mini product launches with every new listing, & a real interest in helping people find the right home has served both me & my clients very well.  I really love what I do & it shows.

When you get into a business, any business, for the wrong reasons, that shows too.  Clients may feel pressured to make decisions, may not get the attention that they deserve, may not get the expertise that they need, or that generally this  just doesn't feel right, leaving them frustrated & disappointed.

Real estate is actually about relationships.  I spend a majority of my time listening, not talking.

When you're looking for a realtor, look for one who got into it for the right reasons!
