One day in February of this year I decided I wanted to be a broker. Well I always wanted that but I really wanted it in February.
Since that fateful day in February I have completed over 300 BPOs, sifted through around a thousand leads, closed some rentals, taken 5 standard listings (don't laugh at that number, it's decent for this crappy market,) attended 19 BNI meetings, dealt with husband being out of town most of the summer on business, moved my kid back home from Omaha, had a small weekend trip to Zion, a weeklong business trip to Seattle, finished broker pre-licensing course, took & passed the state test (first time, that's how I roll,) put together a two inch file and stood in the division line for a day and a half (four trips) the last two business days.
IT'S NOW OFFICIAL!
I will be a competing broker which means I will juggle both selling & managing.
I am really tired yet elated that the drama is over and have been fighting a nap all afternoon. Instead I have been returning phone calls and emails and living off a little adrenaline!
Now I am moving on to the next steps which will include webinars for my agents, recruiting and more selling. I am hoping to move away from the BPOs (which are such fast and easy cash) as my CTS is growing worse and this last spell of bad weather has made me feel my age + about another 20 years with my sore tendons in my shoulder & wrists.
I look forward to sharing my trials and tribulations in regards to my new adventure as well as soaking up more knowledge from the other brokers, agents and real estate professionals around this wonderful network!
Thanks to everyone who has supported me during these long long months - you know who you are!
