Allow me to Introduce Myself

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Roseville 01934425

Hello ActiveRain community.

 

I have been following along and reading the blogs of others for over a year now. I felt like it was time to blog and introduce myself to the community.

 

Everyone feels that they are different than others, I don't know that is actually true, so I won't make that claim today.

 

I was licenced in 2013 when I decided that I wanted to do something that I enjoyed for a living. I have long had a passion for Real Estate and have been involved in investing since I was a young boy with members of my family. It was something I had wanted to do for years, but was afraid to make the leap and leave behind what I knew.

 

In 2012 my family business of 65 years closed their doors and I suddenly had a choice to make. Do I use my Accounting Degree and go get a Corporate accounting job, or do I do something for myself and try and live the life I wanted to live.

 

I decided fairly quick that I wanted to do what makes me happy, helping others. So I figured that I could combine my passion and love of Real Estate and my desire to help others in my career and get my realestate license.

 

I grew up in Elk Grove, CA and have lived in the Greater Sacramento area pretty much my whole life. Now I live in Roseville and am part of the Keller Williams office trying to help my great community be even stronger.

 

Some people would say that I am resereved, I would say you just don't know me. I am smart, whitty, fun loving, sarcastic and a great listener. I just take a minute to open up, I learned from my late Grandfater to watch and observe because people's actions tell you more about them than what they say. I may not always be the loudest guy in the room, but hopefully when I do speak, it matches my actions.

 

I look forward to helping the Active Rain community and helping others fullfill their dreams!

Welcome to ActiveRain. Glad to see you have decided to jump into the blogging world. I also took a year or so before I started blogging. Now it is a habit that is difficult to break...lol.

Welcome aboard and have fun in the Rain!

Justin, welcome aboard the Active Rain train.

There is a perception that many exist on Active Rain as readers only. Some are students from the Utah School of Real Estate, a few homeowners, other trades people, but mostly real estate agents. I frequently puzzle over what happens when someone finally says, "The waters just right!" and jump.

Make sure you take time to have fun playing in the rain.

PS: Respond to those who have commented on your blog.

Hi Justin,

Welcome to ActiveRain.

I hope you will like what you find here.

I remember when I was starting out. I couldn’t imagine ever writing hundreds of posts.

There was so much I didn’t know. Surely I didn’t really belong here.

Well let me encourage you to take one step at a time and hang in there.

I’ve made good money via ActiveRain and learned a lot. But the best thing that ActiveRain has done for me is in this post.

Good luck, let me know if I can help.
