Yes! I was a "CHILD REAL ESTATE AGENT" Que The Beatles! They Say It's Your Birthday.....

YES! I was a CHILD REAL ESTATE AGENT....Except for brief stint as a secretary * in a real estate office * I have had a long career in real estate/property management.

I took the road to the DARK SIDE early in my career working for a local real estate developer managing his larger properties and ancillary out buildings as these properties were being developed.


As luck would have it, I have now been leasing my real estate office from him for over 6 years.

I've worked HARD this week to be able to take a b'day lunch with my sister and then go to a movie.

YES!  I get the SENIOR movie discount and I deposited my government check yesterday......

Real estate is a profession we can do as LITTLE or as MUCH as we want....I have to agree that what does not KILL us does MAKE US BETTER!

Happy birthday and good that you're making time to celebrate it. Owning your own business can be time-consuming but it's good to stop and breathe once in a while.

My mother started in Real Estate when I was about 5 years old. She has been it ever since. I got my license just before I turned 21 (only because I thought I had to be 21). Found out I could have gotten it at 18.

Wallace, 

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY - a few days late.  Setting up your business, verses being controlled by your business is the key to your success - that and a few good plans:-)  

I've told our three kids they will need to get their licenses - not for their forever jobs, but at least to understand the business.

Enjoy your discounts and a few more checks before we go broke as a country:-)

All the best, Michelle

I'm encouraged.  I meet with a friendly competitor on Monday.  She bought her real estate firm from her retiring broker when she was 65 and she is 71 now and still doing property management!  YEAH! Baby!
