I'm Back!

Real Estate Agent with Ridgway Real Estate 40037375

It's been a while since I've been active on Active Rain, and that's because last October, I "retired."  However, my first love, real estate, kept calling.  So, after 4 years in the mortgage business and 9 months of retirement, I reactivated my real estate license this month and joined Coldwell Banker Distinctive Properties.  I am so excited to be back!  I'm Back!

Don't get me wrong, retirement was fun.  I've never been bored with time off.  It was great having no agenda, no commitments, and just, basically, leading a life by stream-of-consciousness, jumping from one activity or project to another as the thought and notion crossed my mind.   I dabbled in e-commerce, stock trading, followed cryptocurrency trends and invested a bit to learn more about it.  I played music, hiked, camped, traveled, worked out with Team Beach Body online, caught up on neglected projects around the house, started an Airbnb business renting out a room in my home in Ridgway, got appointed to the Ridgway Town Council, read lots, and overwhelmed myself with email subscriptions and news alerts. Now, I'm working on minimizing that!

Throughout it all, people kept coming to me with real estate questions and needs, still thinking of me as a real estate professional.  Many lamented I was out of the business.   I had to refer away those who were actually ready to buy or sell to active real estate brokers.  Working with them on a very limited basis reminded me how much I enjoyed real estate--and was good at it.  So, rather than continue to give away business and ignore that which really motivates and makes me happy, I decided to return to real estate.  As someone recently commented to me, real estate brokers really never retire.  I can now agree to that.

So, here I am, ready to relaunch my real estate career and resume my participation in this great community of Active Rain.  I love where I live and sharing it with friends, visitors, colleagues, clients, and anyone who can benefit from my extensive knowledge of this area and my real estate expertise and appreciation.  Here's to our mutual success!
