Goodness, where do I start?
My comfort zone for the past 12 years has been property management and leasing either multi family units or single family homes. I am from the midwest and moved to Phoenix almost 2 years ago now. I started in property management here in Phoenix immediately upon my arrival. I also started real estate school immediately upon arrival and once I obtained my license I decided that working a corporate job allowing someone to dictate my every move and how much I make is NOT for me. So I made the decision to quit my job and work for myself. I am single with no children and boy and I glad! There's not way I would have been able to quit my job, follow my dream and take care of a family without living a very stressful and unfulfilled life. I have a dream of working my hardest to be an amazing entreprenuer and being very sucessful in the real estate industry no matter what part of it I choose to dable in.
With that being said, now I KNOW THE STRUGGLE IS REAL!! Lol. When I made this decision to quit and utilize my license I continued in leasing and property management and thought one day....why run the run raged leasing to collect really small checks?? Why not run raged and collect large checks?? The decision to give buying and selling a try was a big one because I knew there would be some penniless days but I also had a vision that goes far beyond being hungry or broke. I'm a dreamer and wonderer but even better I'm dedicated, hard working, ready to learn, a self starter and I love making money!
I've been sitting listings alone and with another agent that has been such a help to me thus far. I am hoping to start working with buyers and sellers very soon not just for the sake of actually working the indusrty but also for my pockets :)
The LARGEST struggle I have that effects me in every way including real estate is wanting instant gratification and that's just an unrealistic expectation period. I know this business has humbled me so far (almost into a ball lol) and I'm hoping that this is the right path for me :)
I would love all suggestions, feeback, bad and good constructive criticism.
Thank you for reading my blog!
