When it rains, it pours...

But I dance in the rain!! ;)

dance in the rain

I know this industry can be a roller coaster in which when it's good, it's GREAT!!! and when it's bad, it can be really bad.  But I think it's important to keep in mind why we're in Real Estate - why we get up every morning, work our rear-ends off for 12, 14, sometimes 20 hours, and at the end of the day, may or may not get paid.  I personally love what I do!!  I love the excitement of working hard for my clients and seeing the look of joy on their faces when I get to hand over the keys.  We truly make a difference in people's lives in a HUGE way!

I forget this sometimes and get bogged down in the stress and what's happening in the moment as oppose to looking towards the big picture.  I was having one of those days last week when I was reminded by a client why I'm in this industry.  He said:

"I've never had a harder working agent than you!  We feel like we can trust you and both of those things are huge for us!!  So thanks!"

It was short and sweet but exactly what I needed to hear at the same time.  Sometimes a simple "Thank you" from our clients is all it takes to set us back on track and realize that our hard work doesn't go unnoticed, and it really is all for something. 

I'm typically more optimistic than a pesimist but hey, no one's perfect.  These three phrases from my clients were exactly what I needed to hear at that moment and now, more than ever, I feel like I'm back on track.

The next time you're having a bad day, just remember that you're doing what you do for a reason - to truly make a difference in someone's life and that too, will not go unnoticed.

You're right, it is nice to hear those things from a client every once in a while. Glad you're back on track! :)

It does feel good to not only get that settlement check but also to see happy buyers and sellers go on with their lives.

A good attitude will always take you a long way...and a compliment from a client is the topping on the sundae.
