A Day In The Life of a Realtor 1/2/2010

Real Estate Agent with The Abrams Group/ Re/Max Realty Services

New Year....New goals for 2010. It is back to work for me!

Today I met with my 2 new agents that are joining my team. Demi is starting her real estate licensing course tomorrow morning and Jonathan is getting ready to resign from corporate America to join me and my team. Jonathan is my son, Demi is the daughter of my lender partner Mark.
I am anxious to get them started in the biz.
We met at Starbucks this morning and talked further about real estate, the expectations, both mine and theirs. We also spent some time to make sure there is good energy between both Jonathan and Demi, since they will be feeding off of each other in the learning process. They were wide eyed and a bit nervous about this venture. The idea of working and not getting a weekly paycheck can be daunting.
After a successful meeting, I went back to the office and working on my new stationery for my Buyer/Seller packets. I am making myself crazy with the options. I need to just pick on and go with it.
Tomorrow is Monday...back out pounding the pavement.
I am meeting with a client that needs a rental in DC. I don't usually like to do rentals, but last time I said yes to a rental, it turned in to a $1.5 million purchase. Mariel is a referral from a good friend and colleague, Dinos. She needs to find a place quickly so she can move from New York to Washington for a government assignment.
I need to get started on my Senior Living work. That is my 2010 business focus, the senior market. I guess I should line up an appointment or 2 while I am in Friendship Heights tomorrow.
