Ok its been 24 hrs since I joined. I spent close to 18 of the hrs reading in various places on this site. All I can say is wow, you all are quite a bunch of very interesting, informative, creative, funny folks. I am very happy to be here.
This is a second career for me for I come here with 27 years as a registered nurse. Yes... trauma, critical care and all the worse things that can happen to humans. I still teach nursing, consult to an ambulance company and on occasion moonlight as a nursing supervisor. But I have always had this passion for real estate.
I have had this (love-dislike) relationship over the past 15-20 yrs with real estate. I was a licensed salesperson in Boston, owned property then later rented it.....for the past 4 yrs I have been involved in buying, selling, renovating and renting my own properties..... 2 years ago I lost a job......had to sell all the property except the one I live in....change my life.... started my own nursing consulting business and now just became a real estate broker.
For the last 4 weeks I have been with a company doing online mortgages. I am still working on building a client base, I don't have any as of yet..... but I am working on it
So here I am scared out of my wits not really knowing what I am doing. I read all of your posts and am so intimidated by all the knowledge and experience. I unsderstand that fear represents many things, one of them is lack of knowledge. My goal is to build my knowledge base develop a business that provides people with honest solutions to their mortgage and housing needs.
In the mean time I'm just gonna hang out here in the rain!
