Good bye 2010, Nice seeing you! - 12/31/10 06:57 PM
As the end of the year draws closer it makes me reflect back on the year in review. This year has brought about a career change for the better. I have spent the last 5 years in IT as a network administrator and web developer. I have enjoyed my career as a IT professional but it was time for change. The company I was working for was slowly dying as it grew closer to becoming the dreaded out sourced! Real Estate is one of those things that can never be out sourced!

One of the greatest things about being a real estate agent is building relationships with my clients. There is nothing better than working with a client, and getting to know them on a personal level. It makes the euphoria of finding that perfect house just as much fun for me as it does for them. I have taken this love of building relationships and turned it into something I can do to help give back to the community by working with our church's youth group. I spend every Thursday evening working with the greatest group of kids on the planet! (6 comments)
