Finally A Broker!

By
Real Estate Agent with CastNet Realty TREC#263257

Finally A Broker!  is my new book.  I told many of you about it last week.  I want to thank everyone for the kind words of encouragement you shared.  Writing a book is a very hard thing to do.  It takes a long time to do it and I had to write and rewrite and proof and re-proof many times.  Getting the words in the right order is a challenge.

Finally A Broker!

The hardest thing however, is putting yourself out there.  I worried about what people would think about what I wrote.  Being my first book, it is a very scary thing.

The other hardest  thing is finishing.  When do you know it is finished?  It is not that easy.  You can always think of other things to put in it but if you do, it may change the whole focus of the book.  I started over serveral times because of this.  It was a very interesting project.  Now that I know how to do it a little better, I will be working to get my next book out sometime later this year.

I hope Finally A Broker! will help many real estate agents that dream of opening their own offices, to make the leap.  It is a step by step guide to opening your own office.  I share the pitfalls and the victories that are possible.  Please keep reading and sharing it with your friends!  It is available on Amazon in print and e-book.  Buy a print copy and get the e-book for only a dollar more.

Thank you for reading.  I have enjoyed real estate for 40 years now and I love teaching others what I have learned.  Sharing with others is the whole purpose of Active Rain. :)

Ricki Eichler McCallum!!! Congratulations! I know it is hard work and I can't imagine how many hours you spent writing and rewriting. I understand how twists and turns can take you off track. I would love to buy a book; however, I don't buy books through Amazon or anything online. If there is a way I can purchase directly through you, please send me a private message and I can send you a check if you would accept it. 

40 years in the business is a long time! Challenges were many. You really have made a difference in many, many people's lives! This book will be very helpful to others who aren't Brokers. Once again, congratulations on your accomplishment and best wishes for book #2!

Hi Lottie Kendall,  Thank you for ordering a copy.  I hope you like it and get some ideas that will help you.  Please share your thoughts in a review.  I am trying to get the word out.  I don't think there is anything like this topic for new brokers. I could have used a book like this many years ago.  I learned the hard way.  Wishing you lots of success!!!

Hi Kat Palmiotti,  Thank you so much!  It was something I longed to do for a very long time.  I am working on my next book now and it will be about real estate also.  Hope you enjoy both.  Patricia Feager is so kind!  She has the biggest heart and I have always respected her highly.
