This Job CAN be Gratifying!

By
Real Estate Agent with Associate Broker, Momentum Realty

Somewhere along the way, I feel like it became my mission in life to win people over to using--and believing in the value of--Real Estate Agents.

Luckily, for someone with this mission in life, there is an easy way to get your positive reinforcement; all you have to do is take on  a skeptical client and win them over with your hard work, and the rewards begin to roll in!

Yesterday I got an email from one of my clients. We are working on a fairly frustrating shortsale (is there any other kind?) and he is very eager for regular updates.  Since I have no information to provide, we spend a lot of time talking through scenarios and discussing options.  Well, his email was ray of sunshine in my week!  He told me that he used to believe that it was a waste (money, time) to use a Realtor, but since working with me his opinion has completely changed.

So one client at a time I am going after the doubters and the independents...care to join me?

I really believe happiness with any job requires a passion and you if do not have a passion with any job, do something different.  Enjoy life.  I took a trip to Paris and went looking in real estate offices. Either a passion or a sick mind.
