As of the end of October, I am putting my real estate license on ice. That means I am going to stop doing licensed agent work. This is a pretty big deal for me and is not made without a lot of trepidation and questioning. And it is made with a lot of concerns about my clients and friends.
I am in school full time in an arts program. I put in at least 45 hours a week for school in classes, lectures, reading, writing and studio work.
This means I do not have time to provide full time, full care, real estate. Which means if I try to do licensed work, I will short change my clients.
My internal dialog and my conversations with friends and colleagues has been pretty intense. But, because school is the priority, this is the right decision.
How to make a living... good question. I will still be doing my graphic design work and photography piece-work. And I will still be helping Cambria Miller-Johnson with Vestus from time to time, so will be keeping one toe in the local market. And I need to help my husband make his business more profitable via website building, marketing, client follow up and other things like that. And I may decide to freelance those skills out a bit to other businesses and agents. If that isn't enough, I will have to figure something else out. (Let me know if you have any ideas!)
It has been a huge shock to my system over this past week as I realized this is my right decision. I have been a real estate agent for NINE years and I am still not sure how I will define myself. Probably "student". That is the easiest way. On the other hand, I am not giving up all the great friends I have made. And I am not giving up any of the skills I learned.
When any of my past clients need real estate help, I know everyone in town and can get them to the right person.
This is a work in progress- I am a 9+ year veteran of the local real estate market, but am taking a break from licensed work as I go back to school. I am not sure how to describe myself at the moment... but I will be sure to keep sharing about the little gems the area has to offer. I am sure my perspective will change as I take this step back from the very immersive world of real estate.
