I am proud to be a Realtor and carry that name. It is an honor for me and I want to represent it well.
You see I have an older brother! That is probably enough said but he is an older brother who wasn't too thrilled to have a younger brother. In fact he always told me I was adopted. So when I would get in trouble or my parents would be especially hard on me he would always remind me it was because I was adopted.
One day when I was about 12 and I was about to go away on a church trip my Dad came into my room and shut the door behind him (which is never a good thing) He then proceeded to ask me this question "Son what is your Last Name?" I immediately thought "Oh crap, I am adopted, and he is about to tell me right now!" and I answered "Piker" and then he said "and what is my Last name?" and I said "Piker" and then he said this: "That's right we carry the same last name and every where you go you carry that name, just like I carry and my father carried and his father before him, so if you leave this house and act like a fool or do something you shouldn't do then you are not only representing yourself but every one who carries that name and has ever carried it" Needless to say I have never forgot that conversation. And now when my nine year old gets ready to leave the house, or to walk on the ball field I look at him and say "what's your last name?" enough said he knows what I am talking about.
I carry the name Realtor, and I know who that represents, and if you carry that name realize today that you are not just representing yourself, but everyone who carries that name as well!
