Why Are You in Real Estate?



I got to wondering tonight why are other people in real estate?


Why are you in real estate?

For me:

  • I'm 4th generation in real estate, so maybe it's in my blood.
  • My mom brought me into the business when I was 6, and I started process loans very young.
  • My friends started asking me for help when they started buying and selling homes because of my background, even before I considered getting a license.
  • I'm good at it.

Why do I stay in it:


  • I enjoy it
  • I enjoy helping people
  • My family
  • I enjoy the challenges
  • It's just fun!

Great blog Christine... Being in real estate definately beats the monautany of a 9-5 office job in a cubicle.. I love being around people and knowing that I am helping them is one of my many reasons. But just like you I love this career.

I am in real estate because I am in servioe on so many levels:

Help conserve the treasure called Methow Valley

Worth my weight in gold in regards to negotiating on behalf of my buyers or on behalf of my sellers where never the twain shall meet

I love to help people first and foremost. So it could be we point you toward a loan remodification program, we guide you towards a short sale to save your credit but mostly I take your world class property and help you market it to the world. Life is not simple so make the services you provide simple. What is it you need to meet your goals?  I will help you as a team make that happen step by step until our journey is over and our goals are met. Your goals become my mantra.

For me:


  1. It's my business -- to make money.
  2. To bring justice to the world -- to help victims of the criminal banking syndicates keep from being completely ruined by them.

Christine, I enjoy what I do, I am responsible for my own success, or not. This is what fits my personality, I don't have to try and pound myself into the round hole, if you know what I mean.

Stacey - There's certainly no monotony in real estate.

Mary - It sounds like you've found many reasons why real estate is right for you.

I like the idea of conserving the treasure which is your home.

John - I hope you are able to help many people with these issues.

Andrea  - It's nice to create your own success. And, yes, I know exactly what you mean.
