I enjoy real estate because it isnt just selling a house. It is helping people find a place to belong, a place they can rest, host parties, raise children, sleep, eat and enjoy life. When they wander into a house I help them visualize their lives in that house and if it doesnt fit we find one that does.
I dont think I could sell houses if it was like selling a car. Just someplace to live in till it breaks or a better one comes along. A house is an investment. Something most people put pride into keeping nice and improving. I get an insame amount of joy out of showing a very old house that you can just tell the people who lived in it loved it and cared for it and took extra time to make sure that not even a hinge squeaked.
You don't get that same feeling from investment properties, or quick flips, although there is something to be said for taking something neglected and turning it into a home someone would love. I've done it before and scraping off the uck to find the beauty underneath has it's benefits.
Clovis Real estate is fun, because we have great people who live here, some by choice, some not. But even for those for whom it is just a temporary stopping place on their life's road to wherever there are those who choose to make a place for themselves here. Not just a place to stick their furniture, but a place where they belong.
