What I Love About Being a Realtor



February is the month of love. It’s also Spay and Neuter Awareness Month but that’s not what this is about ? I occasionally get calls from hopefuls who are thinking of getting their license and becoming a Realtor. I always take the call or meeting because I think it’s important for people to know the good, bad, and the ugly about the profession that a lot of people think is easy and easy to get rich and sometimes gets a bad rap. While I do tell them all the reasons why they may want to reconsider, I also tell them the good parts, the great parts. I tell them what I love about being a Realtor.

  1. The people I get to meet. I have met some of the most warm, wonderful, genuine people in this business. Clients, vendors, and other Realtors. My friend list is a lot longer since I began selling real estate because of the people I have had the pleasure to meet along the way.


  1. Handing over the keys to a first-time homebuyer. It never gets old. They are scared but they are excited and they are so appreciative for the help in getting to that point.


  1. Helping people build wealth. Real estate is a great way to build wealth if you do it correctly. I love working with investors that understand the value that I bring and all the work that goes into finding a property that fits into their portfolio and is going to make them money.


  1. I am not stuck at a desk all day. I have worked from the beach, the airport, my living room, the hospital. I can do a lot of my job from anywhere and I don’t have to sit in a chair surrounded by four walls with no windows and fluorescent lighting.


  1. I get to see some beautiful scenery. Nature is an awesome wonder. I love driving to a property and passing farms with cows, horses, and especially baby goats. The fields of green. Hills. Blooming flowers in the Spring. Colored leaves in the Fall. Birds greeting me as I get out of my car and the warm sun coming in the window as I drive.


Yes, there are days, like most of you, where I want to throw in the towel and go live on a deserted island. But most days, I am excited to go to work, solve problems and help make dreams come true and lives better. I hope you love your job as much as I love mine. Happy Month of Love.
