Raise your hand if you love being a Real Estate agent. This has to be one of the most rewarding, time consuming jobs in the world. How many jobs allows you to spend your gas/family time/money on people that you barely know riding around on the weekend showing them 15 homes and then the family decides not to buy anything and wait until next Summer? This happens all the time I know and it comes with the job. The key is to better qualify your leads/prospects. MOTIVATION! Now, the rewarding part is when you have a first time home buyer that is soo anxious to get into a house. They have no credit and you work with them for 6 months to build up their credit. They listen to everything you say by the book because they want a house so bad. The first time home buyers are soo excited to even see the inside of a house for sale! You get them closing costs so that they get money back at closing so they can use it to paint their house when they move in. What a great feeling to help somone achieve a goal in life! Got to love being an agent.
