Here I am!

By
Real Estate Agent with The Michigan Group Realtors

Woo-Hooo! I am blogging and to think I never knew what this was all about until I came to the Michigan Group Realtors in Brighton! Our office is the best place to be a Realtor in today's market that is for sure. We are moving up and moving past our competitors with this kind of training as well as having our internationally known manager/trainer John Tenza at the helm to inspire us and guide us into and right out of the mindset that this is a '"bad market" !

 

This is my first year in real estate and I figured I would give it a try not quite knowing how it was going to work out. Sure I listened to the news, my family all shook their heads in sadness, 'doesn't she know?" they all asked?? Ya I heard interesting and frightening things about the real estate market in Michigan, I am aware of the economy but I figured if I could make it in this kind of atmosphere heck  when the turn around occurs I am golden! Sure enough, that attitude gets me into doors, gets signs up and gets homes sold! Fearless, that is what you have to be. My dad always told me to keep plugging away and eventually things will work out. Attitude. My title is "this is not a dress rehearsal' I suppose you know what I mean by that but if not, let me be clear...

This is it, this life is all we've got and I am determined not to let fear and uncertainty stand in my way of success and happiness. Selling homes in Livingston county and Northern Oakland county is the most fun I have had in ages. I have the entrepreneurial spirit. "what would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?" I love that question!  What would you attempt to do? I was a nurse for years and I helped many a patient and family and you know what? I am still helping people, it is just in a different capacity. .

I hope this blog finds those who want to take a chance with an energetic, truthful, spirited individual like myself and I hope I make new friends, business aquaintences, contacts. Hey we are all in this together right? Let's keep having fun while we make our money!!

Hi Constance...Im a Konstance too..(Konnie) I also have a health care background...I worked in patient rehab for many year.  I love your philosophy...this is the job I was born to do..I love it!  I really feel that being a health care worker, or at least having that mentaility has helped me become  a better agent, in health care, it it important to listen, and care about the people you are working with, and I find that translates well in  real estate...i know too profound for a thursday afternoon....best of luck to you in the biz....
