In a time of economic downturn and when many agents have decided to give up their real estate license I entered the world of real estate. I have held many jobs and even served my country for six years in the U.S. Army, but I reached a point in my career where I was truly not pleased I needed more. One day I prayed and asked God to show me the true desires of my heart and I didn't find real estate it found me.
I truly enjoy what I do, however it has not been easy. I have not been strectched outside of my comfort zone this much ever before in my life. I have learned and then I have had to go back and relearn all the stuff that I thought I learned the first time.
I have been blessed to be in a company and an office with great professionals who truly care about my growth and development and as a new agent this means a lot. I received my license in July of 2008 and have not looked back since that day. I truly know now that this is where I am suppose to be.
We had an Awards Ceremony on yesterday and I was there to celebrate the other agents who had worked so hard last year. I had hopes of being one of the recipients for 2009, but to my surprised I heard my very own name called and almost fell out of my chair. I had no clue that I was being considered for an award. Someone has seen me as an agent with potential and therefore I recieved the rising star award out all the agents in my region with 18 months or less in the business working with Century 21. This is truly and honor.
I have said to my self if I can do this with the 20% that I have put forth, imagine what I could do if I put forth the other 80%. I am excited and wanted to share this experience. It has opened my eyes to all the possibilities that lie ahead of me.
