Got My SRES!!! YES!!

Real Estate Sales Representative with Sage Executive Group Real Estate

The lake today was the bluest of blues, the early morning cloudless sky reflected into a million pear shaped diamonds, tossed around by the wind. Probably 4 or 5 ct stones..... Although I awoke with a burning desire for accomplishments, the beauty of the day lured me outdoors, to walk, muse, and accept an idle morning, sipping coffee on the seashore.

Then I remembered my vow to accomplish... and hurried back indoors, shuttering the blinds from temptation. Logging onto the NAR site, I steadied my Platinum Visa for another assault, whilst hitting the Shopping Cart button for the SRES course.

A quick email to the Techie confirmed I had 6 months to complete the course, and yes, if I failed to achieve an 80 percentile on the exam - retakes were allowed.

ChChing... I'm in. Let the studying begin! 3 hours later ( with 5 months or 184 days and 21 hours, 16 minutes to spare ... ) I submitted the final exam and am now the proud owner of a S.R.E.S. designation.

How thrilled  I was to receive my email certificate - with a 94% passing grade. What a feat of accomplishment. Illustrating once again, my poweress over the temptation of a sunny day, my ability to focus - to be detail oriented ... to study, learn, pass.... way to go ..  .......Sharon Sharon.......

Hi Sharon,

Good for you and welcome to the SRES family, you may also enjoy the CPCA designation previously known as CSA, there are lots of ways to benefit from your new skills.

Congratulations Sharon, that is a great accomplishment. You're a real estate agent and you still have a platinum Visa, not too many can say that. Oh and good on ya for getting your SRES designation too.

Thank you all for your generous compliments and accolades... but you ALL missed my witticism, throwing me into a delusional state of self doubt... have I lost my punch, too long winded, boring?? The fact WAS.. yes, I got the SRES... but somewhere along the way I was not bright enough to sign in with my full name. Thus my certificate and passing grade notification are for a non-person (that does not even have a Gold card Malcolm) Sharon Sharon.

Whilst I tried to prove my brilliance, I was once again reminded of my infallible, comical self.. Sharon Sharon.

Yes - it was mostly rational thinking/knowledge - not a whole lot of new learning.. does that mean I was already versed in the subject? They have even agreed to fix my certificate... so now I can actually use it as a Marketing tool!

But more importantly - I really do empathize and realize the importance of assisting our Seniors (soon to be 'us' seniors) in their property acquisitions and disbursements.

Congrats Sharon,

I was up in your neck of the woods a month ago, very beautiful.  I can see how you can get side track, it happens to me all the time on Maui.
