Grateful for Curiosity

Reading today's contest,  Thanksgiving Challenge - Post What You Are Thankful For  my blog post appeared on the brain instantly!  Gratitute comes in many ways to each of us from many different angles. From family to friends to what we do that earns us a living and much, much more. 

 

 

This gratitute post is being written  because of the changes in the housing market and the ensuing changes of my business as it exists today.  You see, I saw the market changing in 2005 when I was buying and selling condo conversions.  I knew things were going to change and that I had to change my business because what I was doing wasn't "sustainable." 

 

Thankfully, I became curious and decided to search for a new niche in the real estate market.  That change has catapulted me into several avenues of volunteering, speciality in construction, and an ensuing passion that will last me the rest of my life!

 

EcoBroker, April 2008If I hadn't been curous in 2007, looking for a new business model, my life would be very different.  If I hadn't gained my EcoBroker license in 2008, my business would not be what it is today. 

 

 

This niche is not only about business.  It's a way of life.  Becoming an instructor, wielding several board positions and earning the respect of my peers is priceless! 

 NAR Green Designation 2012

 

 

Thank you to the National Association of REALTORS® for allowing an EcoBroker to speak from California in November, 2007, about her business and her passion (and for the NAR GREEN designation!)  That passion was exciting and it still is to this day!

In this business you have to be willing to change with the market otherwise you get left behind. It's great that you were curious and found your specialties, niches, and place due to the changing market. Great job! -Kasey

Thank you so much Kasey & John Boles ! You are so right.   In this niche, I'll never have to change or adapt again as this field of construction has gained so much momentum and is only increasing. 

 It's been a great 10 year ride and I'm seeing some great results both professionally and personally from the extra knowledge I've worked to gain.  The most recent is as a Director at my association.  We now have a green tip of the week, and my classes are front and center!  Have a great rest of your holiday weekend!
