It's hard to believe it's December already. It seems in years past, when it got cold and started getting dark early that business dropped off. Don't know about you, but I'm working as steady as I've been all year.
So I started thinking, is anything really different this year, or am I really different this year? The more I work as a Realtor, the more I realize I'm a workaholic, just as I've been in previous careers. There's nothing like sharing the experience with a jubilant buyer or an ecstatic seller.
I just celebrated my fifth anniversary as a licensed agent. I've completed three full years with a company that encourages professional growth and I've made the most of those opportunities. I have made a concerted effort to learn something from each transaction that I'm involved in as this industry, like others, is constantly evolving. I even earned my Social Networking Professional designation from Crye-Leike.
I guess this is the prelude to my year in review. I've expanded the number of counties in which I've assisted buyers and sellers. My office in Columbia, TN is in a wonderful location since I can easily travel to surrounding towns - Lawrenceburg, Pulaski, Hohenwald, Lewisburg, Chapel Hill, Spring Hill, Franklin, and Nashville to name only a few. The opportunities to assist folks are endless.
Just last week, we had the surprise of a December snow in Tennessee with temperatures a good 20 degrees below normal. When the office was officially "closed", where was I? Well of course, I was at the office! Don't get me wrong, what I'm doing requires lot of dedicated effort; things don't just happen. You have to seize the moment. Needless to say, if you aren't there; well, you can't seize.
So I close with a promise that you will be seeing more blogs from me. There is much to talk about and I can't wait to tell anyone who will read, all about the great places in middle Tennessee.
