Well, It's been a very long time in-between blogs..So long that I don't think I can even call it a "blog", but I've made some huge changes, and I hope you'll all bear with me,while I explain myself!
Have you heard the saying, "If you keep doing the same thing, you'll get the same results?" Well, I had finally reached the "brick wall" in Real Estate land. Nothing seemed to be working, and the harder I worked the worse it seemed to get. The more homes I put on the market..the worse the market seemed to get. Nothing was selling, my sellers were all disgruntled, and I couldn't do anything to make it change. So, I decided to "make a break for it." It took a few months of sleepless nights, and many heart to heart talks with friends,husband,kids..but I (with family in tow) decided to move to a completely new town, Vero Beach , and new real estate office, this Summer. I left the booming,busy, and chaotic West Palm Beach, where I had had almost 10 years of success as a Realtor.It has been scary and tough.. I don't know a soul, and I am basically starting all over again, to build my name and reputation in the real estate world. But, I knew it was time to try something new and different, and to be courageous. I have joined a terrific company with great Realtors, but I really miss my old friends, and fellow Realtors. (and I had 2 fantastic Brokers that it was hard to leave)
I have just gotten my first listing, and I'm on my way.. I'll be happy to give any advice to any other Realtors contemplating thinking of a move to a new area. I'm glad I did it, even though it isn't for the "faint of heart." I had no mentors to guide me or give me advice on "what to do with all my existing listings", "How to tell my sellers, and clients",how to pick a new company", "what to look for in a Broker",etc. etc. I had many questions, and I worked them out..eventually..Not everything went smoothly, and it was at times very emotional - but, Change is always good, and brings new opportunities, and adventures.
Please let me know if I can help any other fellow Realtors..I'd be glad to advise, and to give you the needed "Go For It!"
Till next time,
