For me the question have evolved from 'How's the market?" to "Do you watch HGTV?" immediately followed by, "Of course not! You live it."

Everybody likes to talk about real estate. However, I am not usually asked how I got started in the business.

Paul, I have to laugh because I relate to this. I get this all the time..at the grocery store parking lot, getting out of my Hummer people see my Logo Magnet..and here comes all sorts of questions, or yes..at the Dr.s Office....anywhere. It's alot to repeatedly answer to many times all in one day.

Hmmm, I usually notice a slight eye rolling going on as they look down at me like a used cars salesperson.  I would love to tell them how much I make a Realtor but never do.

How's the market is the first question.  If I am lucky enough to start up a conversation, inevitably "have you ever watched the million dollar listing show? WOW!  They make a ton of money!"

Hi Paul -- How's the market is generally the first question.   Every agent should be prepared to answer succinctly.
