Keeping an Agent Going... My favorite collection

Real Estate Agent with Miranda Real Estate Group, Inc. NYS 10401214143

I've always been that person who wanted to work with people.  When deciding upon my college major, it was the one that put me in front of people that was chosen over the one that would isolate me.  Nearly 20 years in healthcare connected me with loads of people and when the time came for a career change, the fuel of working with people remained my desired energy.

Real Estate is about relationships.  Well... that's the way I choose to approach it anyway (others do it a bit differently).  Potential clients, buyers, sellers, lenders, attorneys, paralegals, inspectors, appraisers, family members of clients, neighbors of listings, executive assistants, office staff, the sign guy, etc.... Real Estate involves SO MANY people!  They ALL play a vital role and that is not lost on me.  I've seen transactions fall apart because of poor people skills, egos bigger than the focus on a client's goal, bad/no communication, etc.  That doesn't set well with me!

I'm blessed to have some great relationships with the clients & professionals I collaborate with!  Getting a referral from anyone is proof positive that I must be doing something right.  What really fuels me for another day in this often-demanding business though?  My favorite collection:  THANK YOU notes!   I don't expect them.  After all, I'm providing a service for something I was hired to do.  When I do receive them though, they are treasured... and kept!  I add them to my motivation board and on those days where the challenges seem insurmountable (let's face it, we all have them!), I'm reminded of the role I play in some very significant life events for some pretty awesome people.  :)

Good morning Brenda Mayette ,

I just learned something about you! I didn't realize you had been in the health care industry for 20 years. You are so right about playing a significant role in the lives of some awesome people and it's so rewarding!

Hi Brenda- I love that you've saved the thank you notes from your clients.  It is a good way to remind yourself that you do help people and that they appreciate it on days when things and people conspire to tell you otherwise.

That's the same reason I got in the profession.  People skills are a must.  And clearly, you have them.

I love your collection.  I feel the same way about testimonials from special clients.  My sister once told me that if I ever get frustrated, stressed out or question my purpose that I should read my own press!   Looks like you have a lot of great press!  Congratulations on a life and a business well-lived!

I like the idea of posting these on the board Brenda, it can be very uplifting when someone takes the time to send a Thank You note.

Brenda, your post is inspiring and motivational. Seemed to make me go back in my files and pull out a few names to reconnect, recreate,  and communicate.  In our day of technology, we seem to perhaps have shelved our old "mailboxes" too far back. All messages do not have to come the way of FACEBOOK, TWITTER, or Emails....:)
