Starting anew...A much needed do-over.
The year of 2007 was met by an arrogant boss who was in denial, refusing to acknowledge the ever-changing market. It was evident that south was the direction it was going and soon, many who worked in the real estate industry would experience life-changing conditions.
Hailed in brisk times, he blamed me for the lack of traffic coming through the doors of the model homes. I began taking real estate classes and soon passed the test. He found out and let me go. The human resource woman apologized to me based on the circumstances.
Utah is an “employment-at-will” state. An employer can let you go for any reason as long as it doesn't infringe on human rights.
Starting over at 45 years of age in a down market was, at first, daunting until he told me I would not be successful in real estate. That was the fuel needed to look forward toward success, leaving the past and negativity behind where it belonged. Wanda Can became my motto!
I was lucky enough to meet up with an agent with more than 20 years of industry experience. We teamed up. I did all the advertising and marketing and he was the salesman extraordinaire. His style and ease of speak left me impressed more than once. He was also a patient teacher.
Almost 10 years later and I am still loving the real estate process. I had the best year ever, was named Agent of The Year by my brokerage and plan to supersede this year's sales goals in 2017. Glad to have been ousted by the former employer to begin a career determining my own success.
I'm still standing, better than I ever was...
