I have been comtemplating my "Rainmaker" status for a month or two. We've had a drought in Austin, TX all summer and saying it's "bone dry" is an understatement. Well, now it has been raining all day and I decided to get off the fence (taking my own advice... I've been telling it to buyers for months and months - time to do it myself!).
What better way to kick off my ActiveRain blog than on a rainy day!?! I'm looking forward to a long, meaningful existence in the "Rain" community. I have already benefited from the contributions of other members. I am ready to learn more and give as much as I can!
The business of real estate, whatever your role or profession, is rewarding in more ways that I could have realized. I "found my way" into the business as I neared graduating from college (a friend talked me into getting my license when I had a change of heart about law school). I tell him I'm in his debt everytime I see him. I've worked on difficult transactions early in my career. The ones where people tell you... "it's a great learning experience" (they also make you want to crawl under a rock and hide!). But the gratitude I receive from my clients is what has kept me in the business during these difficult times. I look forward to what lies further down the line.
As Willie Nelson might say... the hardest part of writing a blog is the first entry. Well, now that's over!
