We do need eachother!!

Real Estate Agent with Allen Tate Company, The Speed Group

Every day in this business is an adventure.  I am sure you can all relate to that.  And part if it comes from meeting new people every day.  I personally love meeting new people.  I could make it a hobby, except I have already made it my job.  I have met some of the most fantastic people since I joined the real estate world a little over a year ago.  But I have also met some people I just don't understand.  Are we all in this together?  Isn't the whole game networking, making connections, keeping connections, and making money?  What blows my mind is when people think they don't need other agents.  I know ethics is a subject that has been beaten to death.  It just seems that for some people it goes in one ear and out the other.  I don't want to get into specifics, I just wanted to say thank you to those people who make my job fun, and my career progressive.  Thank you!

The most interesting thing of all about a real estate career is that you meet truly everyone (in personality types), both in and out of the biz.
