Here I Am!!! And I'm BLOGGING!!!

Real Estate Agent with Midwest Properties of Michigan

     I've been in Real Estate almost a year and have found my biggest challenge to be the computer.  I owned one for several years but used it mostly for e-mail but would only check that occasionally.  I figured if someone needed to contact me they could phone or write.  When I became a Realtor I figured I would be so busy taking clients out that I would probably not have to use the computer that much.  LOL!  Now, not only do I have 2 computers and am so entirely dependent on it - I'm blogging!!  My Broker issued a challenge to our team, so I'm wading in - to get my feet wet.

     I'm very busy with my Real Estate practice and really like what I'm doing.  These are the good times, as far as I'm concerned, because I've never known any different.  This is a great business to be in - all the people you meet (including in this Network).  My absolute favorite part of being a Realtor is taking buyers out, spending one-on-one time with them and showing them homes.  There's nothing quite like the "AHA" moment when you realize what they're really looking for and then finding their perfect home.

      When I'm not busy working (and as Realtors - aren't we really always working?) I love to golf.  My husband tried to teach me how several years back but, as the late great Harvey Penick used to say "Husbands should never teach their wives to golf" (I guess we don't listen).  So I hired a golf pro to teach me the exact things my husband was trying to tell me.  I worked at a golf course for 10 years to hone my skills, but was too busy working to hone.  I still enjoy the game though and can recommend some great courses in the West Michigan area (I'm all about the food, too, so I can tell you which ones have a good restaurant).

     Thanks for reading this and wading through with me!!!
