The Best Profession In Any Weather

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with HomeRome Realty 410-530-2400 311291

It's all about passion. The real estate business is the best profession in the world in any season. People buy and sell all year long.

Go ahead, march to your drummer. There is no time clock. You make and set the hours. You are the boss.

And this profession is compatible with all personalities. The good, the bad, and the ugly can make a career on their terms. However, our industry continues to experience a revolving door.

Is it because agents never find their niche in the business? They are too busy looking for that magic bullet, the newest gadget, the latest program that will bring all the buyers and sellers straight to them.

It's not about making your market larger but instead fine-tuning what you are doing that works. Bigger is not necessarily better.

 

Find your passion,  focus on it and learn it inside and out. Once you become the expert in your niche, you'll always have the business you want in any season.

The one thing I always loved about being a Realtor was no matter how bad a transaction was, or difficult a client might have been, the transaction had a time limit on it.  Whereas, if you are an employee of a company with a difficult job or boss, it lasted forever, or until you either quit, were fired, or soldiered through until you retired.

You are so right, Myrl Jeffcoat There is a beginning middle, and end. This is unlike any 9-5 job with a boss. Thanks for the feature in OFC!

If a new agent understands they are actually running a business, and takes the time to strategize/plan/prepare for the success of that business, they will do well!

And I love your photo!

Merry Merry Christmas to you!

Hello Margaret - indeed! There are many paths that can lead to the real estate profession.  And that procession and progression in its practice can be particularly amazing too.

Excellent words of wisdom here!  Love this post.  Passion is a big part of what makes an agent successful.  Once an agent developes systems and works in their niche, business follows.  Buyers and sellers can sense if an agent is passionate about what they do. If so, it's not hard to earn repeat business.  Love this post!  Have a wonderful Christmas day!

Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400  You are so right. Many agents are recruited into this business thinking it is easy. At a Christmas party, a lady told me she went to a seminar for new Real Estate agents and asked what Health benefits she would receive when they said none she walked out the door
