First Blog

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with RE/MAX South Shore Realty

This being my first BLOG on Active Rain. I would like to dedicate it to all the hard working real estate agents that are helping people buy and sell properties all over the world.

I am a real estate brat. My parents have been Realtors for over 23 years. My grandfather was a real estate agent for over 40 years. So needless to say I was pretty much born into real estate. I am very fortunate that I didn't have to recreate the wheel to be successful in this business. I have learned a lot from family about how to be successful in real estate. Be consistent, lots of empathy, appreciate what you have, and be professional at all cost. Some day I will take over my parents brokerage and continue my families real estate legacy for many years to come. I wish every active rain member a very successful 2008.

Thanks for reading my BLOG.

Hi Jen,

Welcome to Active Rain!  You make some great points about success in real estate.  Those traits you mention will also help you establish strong Active Rain relationships.  By the way, even with all the thousands of real estate agents in Florida, what a small world it is sometimes!  Please invite Marney to sign up too.  :)  I'll send her an email right now.

Cordially,

Bruce
