Good morning Paul. I would go back to a time and era where life was not so complicated with all the mumbo-jumbo legalese.

I started my real estate career as a Realtor in 1996.  I'd like to know what I do now and be starting in 1997.

If I could go back in time it would have nothing to do with real estate.  It would have everything to do with being able to be with the people I love, who are now gone!

Great question. Maybe the late 60's and early 70's when life was simpler and RESPA was not even a twinkle in anyone's mind!

About 40 years.  If I had done it I could be retired-retired by now and living the good life.  Regardless life is still good I would have chosen this profession over the one I started with.

I remember the most fun and excitment in my career was in the 90's whe I was developing what was becoming South Beach. The $ was flying in from all sides.

I loved the early '90's.... many distressed subdivisions on the market and I had all of them.... the homes were flying of the shelves...

I liked the 90's the best because the forms were a whole lot less and we were using the internet and the leads were pouring in and they weren't bogus.

Paul,

 

I want to stay right where we are. The old days of MLS books, and running keys from office to office, no thanks.
