I may have told this story before here on Active Rain but I couldn't find it so here it is....
I would love to say it was a plan, that I grew up wanting to be an agents (ok in High School at one point I thought it would be cool)but that is not my story.
Before Real Estate I was lost, I was stuck in doing something I hated and had no idea what I wanted to do. I made just enough money to where it was hard to leave but also hard to go to work each day. I felt trapped! Quite frankly, I didnt like it and I didnt put forth my best effort.
Then Wendy and I started dating, she was an agent and she worked really hard. She was great with people but had issues with technology, she needed an assistant but really couldn't afford one due to her financial position after a bitter divorce. So I started helping her with her websites and marketing as I enjoy web design and programming. Wendy had been in real estate for about a year when we started dating, since I had been in sales for 20 years she would ask me sales questions... As time passed I found myself leaving my real job early to help her. I really enjoyed the web work. One day she suggested "why don't you get a Real Estate license?" At first,I thought "NO! I just want to help out behind the scenes and be in my own little world!" But as time passed I started thinking about it, I signed up and started to study. I thought we could tag team and I could hold a house open for her on weekends, handle a little bit of the overflow of business when needed but keep my "job" until I found what I wanted to do.
Then it happened! I sold a home to a first time home buyer! I was hooked!
I can't express the feeling of joy and happiness I got in helping that couple! Then I helped someone whose home had been on and off the market several times. We had it sold in two months. The list keeps going! I can say as I near the end of my third year in the business I wish I did thisbefore.
