I just got off the phone with a buyer's agent who wanted to know the exact amount of a mello roos tax on one of my listings. Now if you know me then you know I don't have just one listing and I don't sell in one city so I don't have all the aspects of my properties in my head. I told her I have all that info in my office and will me there on Monday. She was apauled that I actually took a day off. She asked me "you take Sunday's off and your in Real Estate?? And I heard "How dare you not know the answer to my questions and how dare you take a day off!!"
I work because I love it and not because I have to. I work in Real Estate because I enjoy every aspect of Real Estate and I know that a large bulk of showing property is on the weekends but I am not just one agent. I am a team lead and I deserve a day off, shoot I deserve 2 days off!! I have 2 small boys that are my entire life and if I worked evryday I would lose so much more than what I would if I worked all day, everyday.
The point of my rambling is.....Real Estate is a career not a lifestyle. I have been in Real Estate for over a decade and if it was a lifstyle I would have gotten burnt out and I would not love it the way I do. So....make sure you take a day off. Make sure you don't get burnt out, Make sure you take time for yourself and your family. There is always another day and your clients will respect you more if you make Real Estate your career and you are not made an order taker. If you do your job well and can balance everything equally I promise you will be happier and the deals will come!!
Happy Sunday off!!~Stacie
