On those hectic days where I am working 12 to 14 hours a day I often ask myself why. Then, suddenly, it comes to me. Why - because I love to see the smile on a first time home buyers face when they are handed the keys to their first home. Why - because I love to feel the excitement when someone is moving across town or across the country. Their excitement spills over into my heart. Why - the look on a child's face when they know they're going to get a swing-set in their new back yard. There are a thousand whys and the why nots are very minimal. Are there moments of sadness and sorrow in this job? Sure there are, but for the most part I LOVE MY JOB! I come out of my deal with so much more than a paycheck. I come out with a new friend or two. I come out with satisfaction that I have done the best possible job for my new friend.
Many people think this is an easy job. All they have to do is follow one of us around for a week and they change their mind quickly. I remember when my grown nephew used to tell me that he should get his real estate license and after hanging around me for a few days he'll say now - Aunt Tammy, there's no way I could do your job. But again the rewards are great!!
This isn't a job, it's a lifestyle! I went from being a one person show 6 months ago with about 20 listings to being a 4 person team with 40 listings! It's like running a small business and I love being one that started it all. When one of my agents has a closing, it makes me smile. When one of them have a problem that I am able to help them with, it satisfies me and when one of them figure a problem out on their own, it makes me proud!
So, when someone ask me if I like my job, I have to say no, I love it!!
It is always a pleasure to serve you and your friends.
