As a new agent I'm as motivated as they come! While still holding a full time position as professional firefighter I am committed to my new Real Estate journey.
I poured a cup of coffee, looked at my wife and asked "what's it gonna be?" The overwhelming desire to grow a business in real estate had my full attention. It was time to decide which direction I would focus my energy.
Let me explain...
I was exposed to the real estate market early on as I often shadowed my father in his real estate endeavors. He owned a number of rental properties which he maintained and managed alone. My memories include answering the phone and providing details of houses for rent, early morning trips to the lumber yard before school, and investigating potential deals when passing the run down, vacant house on the corner. I earned spending money over the summer mowing vacant houses, sanding floors and painting. All that to say, twenty years later I now own rental properties. Being too frugile to pay wages, I have learned much about repairs. I even ventured out this last year to remodel my own home. Do I begin remodel work for others? Do I become an active agent and learn the real ropes of the real estate market?
I have joined the HAYWOOD HOME TEAM at McGraw Realtors, one of the TOP 100 Teams in the Tulsa Area. My journey has begun! Now, I must tell everyone about my new journey. I'm discussing real estate with my hair dresser when she says "I went to real estate school but can't see myself talking someone into a house they don't want."
Is Real Estate for Me??
I believe it is! Helping a client find the perfect fit and experience the feeling of "finding the one" has got to make it worth it. I strive to provide honesty and fair dealing so everyone wins! It's not about pushing a client into a quick contract. Trust is earned and I want to earn the trust of my clients and peers.
