One of the most important things any Realtor who is a parent of young children is child care.  The beauty of our jobs is that they are flexible, so we can make those important events and be there for our families.  However few of us can do a good job of running a home, running a business, being a parent, being a spouse, cooking, running errands and more with out some help.....for this support I have in part chosen to leverage with the help of a nanny who comes to my home.

I would love to hear from others how they leverage this part of their lives, what they get support for and what they do themselves and so on.

For those of you who want to hire a nanny for help I am also sharing the application I use.  Perhaps it will be helpful to you.  The questions are pointed and YES I ask for and get 10 references....I find this most important!
