Why I love this Job!

Real Estate Agent with Douglas Elliman Real Estate

We live in a big condo building here in Manhattan.  We talk about it a lot, the Dorchester Towers ,and have had the opportunity to position ourselves as one of the most well established real estate teams over the years.  

Having lived in the building near 10 years now, we've completed lots of transactions both sales and rentals and have developed good friendships with many of the people we have helped buy or rent in the building.  

When you are taking the elevator in the morning, sitting in the lobby waiting for an appointment to arrive, getting your own mail,  or even picking up dry cleaning from the package room, you see a lot and run into a lot of people, even if its just for a few minutes at a time.  


Morgan EvansWe have helped people rent their first Manhattan apartment after moving to the city,  and a few years later see them get married and a few years after that sometimes you see that they have had a baby.  Most people can last a couple of years in a one bedroom apartment once they have their first child.  But there is only so long before they are bursting at the seams and looking for a larger place.  Try sharing one bathroom and two closets within a 650 square feet one bedroom and see how that works out!!

What I love about this job is seeing this natural progression of life's events and feeling some sort of involvement about helping people get to that next place in their home journey.  Seeing that transition from starter rental studio, to buying that first one bedroom apartment and maybe that bigger jump to a larger Two  or Three Bedroom apartment is very satisfying.  

So often, we get wrapped up in the difficulties of specific transactions and fixing problems.  When we can take a step back and see how an apartment has impacted somebodies life it becomes extremely satisfying and its one of the reasons why I love this job!

Morgan, as a frequent visitor now to NYC and having lots of family and friends still there, I can relate to your story and appreciate the life style and being involved in where you live. There is no where else quite like Manhattan and the lifestyle as well as opportunities it brings. Our family still keeps a residence at 9th and 24th in Chelsea. Love spending time as often as I can. Congrats on your story.

Morgan, that is such a fabulous location!  It's fun to read about city living.  I would love to live there for a while, but I'll have to make due just visiting.  My uncle lives on W. 68th toward Central Park.  We'll be there in August.

I love seeing that progression in a person's life.  That condo/city life is well beyond anything in my rural market, but the people remain the same.

Dorie Dillard - Totally agree, we each our living in different geographic regions with their own unique attributes, but the human experience is very similar

John Wiley - Nightmare and love affair, definitely a New York City perspective.  Often I hear, myself included people talk about how hard it is to live in New York City, but then we say its the best place in the world. 

Liz and Bill Spear - I always enjoy hearing about other real estate environments and how agents are navigating them. 

Tammy Lankford, - Totally agree, the personal experience is universal from a rural environment to a high density urban area.

Beth Bromund - I know the 68th and Central Park area very well, we are very close by.  Summer is always a nice time to be in NYC.  

Teri Pacitto -24th and 9th, definitely a nice area, the West Chelsea neighborhood has seen so many new buildings built in the last couple of years, the Highline Park really brough a lot of change.

Troy Erickson - Thanks for the comment Troy!

Jeff Dowler -The perspective of living in a big building and what is really like is always something I feel is beneficial to be able to explain to people who are new to that type of experience.

Jan Green - Totally agree, during the transaction we are so deep into our buyer or sellers life, then afterwards we do our best to stay in touch.

Sounds like a beautiful building to live in. I enjoy many of the same reasons why you love your job. That upgrade after they get married and have a child is always nice.
