The best thing about being a Realtor.

Golf Clubs in the desert

It's hard for me to pin down the MOST favorite thing of mine about being a Realtor here in the La Quinta, Palm Springs area of the desert.  Real Estate is not a career choice for the feint of heart, nor for the non-disciplined, nor for a person that needs to have someone telling them what to do.  Quite the opposite..a Realtor is an independent contractor and MUST be self-motivated, and very disciplined. 

I would have to narrow it down from the following list of ..

"My Favorite Realtor things.."

1.  My clients!  I love being a sales person.  I know my Palm Springs Valley, and I LOVE living here, which I have done for 30 years!

2.  Working my own hours:  I am self-driven so if I want to work from home at 4 a.m., I do.  The myth is that working for yourself means less hours..exactly the opposite is true!

3.  Getting an indepth look at the developments and their homes:  Fun, labor intensive, but very rewarding.

4.  Having NOBODY to blame but myself. 

5.  Meeting people from ALL walks of life, who I would not normally meet in a job that did not take me out of my comfort zone of familiarity as much as real estate does.


I've been a Realtor in the Palm Springs Valley for 14 years now, and still enjoy it as much now as I did when I was a "newbie" selling New Homes at PGA West.  If you're looking to buy or sell a property here in La Quinta or any of our Palm Springs VAlely cities, give me a call at 760-285-3578.

I love seeing the look on a first time home buyers face when they find "the one"!

Many people were surprised when Forbes reported that, according to a Career Bliss survey, real estate agents have the “happiest job in America.”

Go figure.

Great picture!
