What happened to MOM?

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX 1st Choice

     I am the proud mother of 5 girls ranging in age from 5-23!!! Back in 1998, when my eldest daughter was 13, I sold my very successful business to be a stay at home mom to my then 3 children. In 2003, when my eldest daughter went to college, I transitioned to part time SAHM and full time REALTOR®.

    Now that my eldest daughter is home from college, she isn't used to me going out to show homes, meetings, and all those other realtor related outtings! She just doesn't get it!!

  I am fully aware that some parts of the country are experiencing a severe housing slump, but thankfully that hasn't affected me at all! My real estate business has been consistent. Things are so busy that I frequently hear my 23 year old daughter who recently came home from college, say to my 15 year old daughter..."What happened to mom, she's not a stay at home mom anymore!!!"

Wow, 5 girls.  I only have 3.  We stopped trying for a boy after that.

I'd put that college grad to work helping with mailings, flyers, work on the web, etc.  It might give you more free time to spend with your family and give her appreciation for what you do.

Glad to hear your business is holding up.  We are still doing pretty well up here in Bucks County PA also.
