I absolutely love this blog by David Cahill - I love what I do and love helping people in this crazy world of real estate. The 'days off' I do take are so much more enjoyable when I know I was able to help someone when they needed it. No matter what day of the week it is!
Do Real Estate Agents Really Ever Get a Day Off? I was asked this by one of my clients recently when I told him that I was going to try and take a day off soon. It was looking good and there were no appointments scheduled a few days in advance. It was a weekend day and I figured that if no one had a showing requests, I might actually take a day off and try not to do any work.
Has this ever happened to you? While you may not have any appointments scheduled, there may be phone calls or emails to answer. Even text messages to reply to since a lot of my clients, both younger and older than myself, prefer to communicate via text message. While we are not attorneys and therefore do not bill our clients hourly, isn't it still working if we are thinking about our clients during a "day off"? Maybe thinking about someone who has been looking for a while and trying to figure out what would help them find their perfect home? Or even thinking about what Sundays to host open houses so they do not conflict with the local pro football schedule.
Whether we like it or not, if we are real estate agents, not a day goes by when we are not either working or thinking about our clients or current deals. While I was enjoying my honeymoon in Aruba a couple months ago, I'm sure that at some point on each day, there was some real-estate thought floating around in my head (don't tell my wife!).
It's ok, though. You know why? I just love it. I love what I do! I love helping people buy and sell homes. I love being there for my clients at every stage of the game and knowing I am helping people with their home purchase dreams, or their real estate investment objectives, or their probate obligations, etc. It's okay that I never really take a day off and that's the way I hope it stays.
