In real estate, no two days are alike. For some of us, that’s one of the real draws to the profession. I’ve had jobs working for other people before when days just roll into each other with no significant difference from each other. In those kinds of jobs, for me, there is no challenge, no passion, no sense of advocacy.
Our day yesterday started with a seminar hosted by Oldtown Bank in Waynesville actually it started with taking Gigi, the 80 pound black and tan coonhound mix to the Animal Hospital of Waynesville for some much needed dental surgery. THEN we attended a seminar hosted by Old Town Bank in Waynesville and the Haywood County Board of Realtors. Interestingly enough, the seminar dealt with the different things that people find “motivate” themselves and how unless we make a concerted effort to discover those things…we may never fully understand what drives us to success. It was eye opening for me. At some point in the future I might share some more in the blogs, but for now I do understand better what draws me to ActiveRain, writing and photography.
After the seminar, we returned to Dillsboro and had an afternoon full of returning calls, prepping for Saturday’s day of showing, I showed our listing on Helen Zachary Rd in Cullowhee and made more calls. We returned to Balsam, picked up the little grey/white cat called “Little Monkey” and went back to the vet’s office. Little Monkey had a senior panel drawn for bloodwork…he doesn’t seem to be keeping his weight on him. We picked up Gigi who was now rid of the infected teeth. Someone was in the vet’s office who had just found a dog that we are sure the owners are frantic to find. This person can keep the dog as of today but couldn’t last night, so we boarded her at the house until this morning.
It was indeed a very long day and certainly different from the day before or how today will end up. So, as I pondered about today’s blog I was searching through my photos and came across this serene scene and thought this will be a good image to reflect upon. I know for a fact, no two days are alike in real estate…ever.
