Due to the state of the market I think it would be safe to say that many of us have evaluated our current status as realtors. I've spoken to veterans, newer agents and those working around the market and all of them have been dissatisfied with one or more aspects of their current status.
Hey ME TOO!!! All that being said it has caused me to reframe my thoughts on brokerage, development and just plain sales. The best news is that it has created more motivation for me now then ever before. I'm so excited about the possibilities that are opening up that sometimes I feel like a kid in a candy store.
The national news is horrible and has been, that's not news, but the good news is that it is not as bad as everyone thinks. I got a call today from a major home builder who wants to renew our communication lines as they anticipate acquisitions in the upcoming month or two. I have 12 people who are currently looking for commercial properties throughout the area. I work with one retailer who is aggressively expanding in the market and looking to take advantage of the softened prices and lower construction costs than 1 year ago.
The rebound has started.....how long until you realize it? Will you still be around? I know I will.
