Practicing Real Estate is Like Learning to Swim - Maria Sapio Carlisle, PA.

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams of Central PA RS334568

 

Just like a doctor 'practices' medicine - I like to think of myself as one that 'practices' Real Estate.

 

I cringe when I think of being called an 'expert' at anything. 
I prefer to consider myself as
Always a student,
Always continuing to learn,

Always growing in knowledge.  

Back to my analogy - so, why do I think being a Realtor® is like learning to swim?

The only way to learn how to swim is to get in the water.

We may practice arm strokes on land and even have a plan for what to do after jumping into the water but ultimately the only way to swim is to get wet!

Real Estate is an incredible teacher. 
Each day I learn new things 
Each day I am faced with new situations
Each day requires that I build upon what I have already learned
Each day growth happens 


Each day I 'practice' with gratitude.

You can't ever have TOO much information...and it may well be...what you know today will change tomorrow.
