Everyone makes too much money (but me)

Real Estate Agent with ProSmart Realty

I can barely remember what it's like to work for an hourly wage...still many people think...oh wow that professional blank makes too much money! That business owner, that roofer, that mechanic, that Realtor, etc. Last week we listed a $1.3M house. After 1 day they were forced not to sell it after all. Today, a $1M home owner wanted 15% over market value, which would be impossible to get. All in all, we put about 15 hours of preparation into these potential deals.  So before you think Realtors make so much...try going to work the next 2 days and find out you wont get paid for those days. Not whining at all...been doing this for 23 years...Melynda and I love helping our clients get what they want. Unfortunately, many people in our society still think that everyone else but them make "too much money." Keep moving forward!😊👍 #SayNoToSocialism

Good morning Gary and Melynda. Yep, list a property and it sells immediately and people think you make too much money. Put in time for a listing appointment and don't get it and most will say that's part of the game. Yet many will not roll the dice. Enjoy your day.

Yes indeed - there are definitely unpaid days/hours/weeks in real estate!

Everyone deserves to make plenty of money if they work hard and are focused on doing the best job possible!
