Today I became a REALTOR®

Today, I became a REALTOR®. 

It has been a long journey. I started out as an admin, then a real estate agent, and now a REALTOR®. 

I have always told everyone I would never be one. Never say never, right?

The seed was planted at the Keller Williams Family Reunion in February 2012. Not long afterwards, I started real estate school and took my sweet time with it. I was so unsure about it because the person I was working for announced that I couldn't be an admin and agent at the same time on her team. 

So I found a team that did. 

Ironically, like the first KW agent I was working for, I do believe that to be a great agent you have to be full-time. And after I receive one or two commission checks, I'm sure that will be the case. 

I will never downgrade anyone who belongs to another brokerage or has their own. For me, Keller Williams is my home. I don't think I could get as much support and training as anywhere else and I need that!

There are so many people along the way who have encouraged me, that I could not possibly thank you all individually. 

I want to give a HUGE shout out to my Active Rain colleagues who really believed in me. 

Now, another journey begins, and I live my purpose in helping others find their dream homes. 

Thank you Active Rain staff and members for taking me seriously even when I wasn't an agent and helping me to learn and grow. 

I look forward to the coming years and learning and growing even more!

I started as a secretary in 1992 Lynda.  I've owned my own firm since 1995.  Still going great. :)

Tammy, you were smart, because everybody loves the lake. Those houses probably sell themselves sometimes! But I know it is a lot of work and negotiation involved too. ;) I'm happy for you and inspired by you!

Wayne, I know that real estate is not what the general public thinks it is, it is a lot of work but rewarding and worth it. Thanks!
