Are You 'Rosie the Riveter' of Real Estate?????? Women Read!

Real Estate Agent with Vision Real Estate LLC

Are you Rosie the Riveter of Real Estate?  Are you a woman out working your Real Estate business?  Taking phone calls, making appointment, showing homes, writing up contracts, educating Buyers and Sellers on the home buying process?  Do you then have to come home to a house full of chores or preparations? Dinner for the family? Shuffling kids to activities? What if you work a SECOND job? Gosh how does it all get done?

Some female Agents out there have a lot to do in addition to running their Real Estate business?  Are you better working outside of the home instead of inside the home, keeping up with all the chores? If you are, embrace it and acknowledge that it's "OK" to be better at running your business than a vacuum.

I am one of those Ladies.  I prefer to work outside the home than inside.  I would rather be at the Real estate office than scrubbing the floor at home.  I am not embarrassed by acknowledge where my strengths are.  Real Estate is serious and I would rather put my efforts into building a great business and having Clients understand the process and have someone else do the work at home.

Something are worth going that extra mile for.  Maybe striving for another house closing to afford to have someone else do the cleaning or the yard work at home.  This post is not intended to leave out men, it's just written from a female perspective.

Julie, I agree, us women have way too much to do and the last thing I take care of is the cleaning, I cannot wait to have someone come in and do it for me...one more closing...one more closing!

So true.  I commented in a meeting earlier this week that I have too many jobs - including "tutoring" my son through his homework.  It makes for a long day.  What a luxury it would be to do my real estate work, then come home to dinner and a clean house.
