I've been lurking around ActiveRain for a few months. When I cam across the site I was in property management and was thinking about getting my Real Estate license. What a great resource ActiveRain is. I have learned so much from reading the different blogs.
Well I am proud to say that as of October 18th 2011, after passing my state test, I have officially became a Real Estate Agent! Let me say that I'm really excited about building a successful business that will help me fund my golden years! I know I've chosen the right Broker to do it with as well!
On the same day I became an Agent I also took the additional step of officially becoming a Rainmaker! Being on ActiveRain before I became an Agent I believe will give me the edge over other new Agents, and maybe even some of the veterans.
I've chosen to become an Exclusive Buyer's Agent. One of things I recognized when I was property manager (I specilized in single family homes) was that I really enjoyed helping people find the right home. I also believe that Buyer representation has been lacking within the industry and buyer clients need the fiduciary duties just as much as a seller client does.
So I really look forward to learning and growing with the help of the ActiveRain family. I'll keep you updated so stay tuned!
