Dear clients and fellow REALTORS,
I have decided that I want more from myself...and my business in 2012. So back to school I go! I am going to take the initiative to take the broker classes and obtain a broker's license. I have no excuse, all the courses that I need can be taken in the first half of the year and all are held within 20 minutes of my office. Yes, it will take a 3 day commitment once a month for the next three months, but it is worth it to me.
Let me tell you why it is worth it to you:
I will be more knowledgeable about the way that brokerages are managed and maintained. In the security of being an associate, I have no risk and I have been oblivious to the everyday workings of running an office.
If I decide to be an instructor or an office branch broker someday, I have 8 years of salesperson experience to back me up. There are already many agents that look to me for answers to contract language and contingencies already, so this is the next logical step.
Since I am renewing my salesperson license this year, it makes sense for this to be the year that I become a broker associate. I may never decide to open my own office, but I may want to leave the door open for managing an office....someday.
As for my clients, I will have even more knowledge regarding the law surrounding their real estate transaction. You can never have too much knowledge, and I am always learning.
So please be patient with me in the coming months. For those of you that know me well, I am always accessible. But three days out of each of the next three months, I will not be able to take your call and answer your questions immediately. My voicemail will reflect those days and times when they are upon us, and rest assured that I will respond to you as soon as I possibly can. I appreciate your support and look forward to serving my clients in a new way this year. Just don't be surprised that you don't see me hanging out at the office too much. Not that I do anyway! :)
2012 will be the best year ever!
