Never Ignore A Gut Feeling #FortuneCookieFriday

Real Estate Agent

Never ignore a gut feeling,

but never believe that it's enough.

 I had a gut feeling that I should be in real estate in 2010.  However jumping into something just isn't my style.  I did some research and found out what I needed to obtain my license and things I should look for/at when checking out different brokerages.


I interviewed with a few agencies and was sorely disappointed.  Not that they were bad or that they said/did anything to upset me, they just didn't keep that gut feeling ignited.  I was glad that I didn't jump; my gut just wasn't right.  At that moment...


Then I was introduced to Keller Williams.


From the moment I walked through the door at KW, I was family.  The OP (operating principle) gave me a copy of Gary Keller's MREA and told me to stop back any time.  The TL (team leader) invited me to attend the new agent classes and I hadn't even signed up to take my licensing classes yet!  The gut feeling returned.  I belonged here.


My gut feeling about what I was supposed to be doing was right.  I just had to find the right place to do it.

So, never ignore a gut feeling, but never believe it's enough.

But sometimes it is, you just need to wait a little bit ;)


 It was brought to my attention by a Mr. Bob Crane that it's been a while since I've shared some cookie papers and that my words of wisdom might be missed.  Well, I had to please the masses...  Fortune Cookie Friday is back and boy do I have a lot of fortunes to share with you!

So very true. Never fight your intuition, sounds like you made the right decision and haven't looked back.

Make it a great weekend!
