I love my job. Each day I go to work I get the opportunity to go on a new adventure. People invite me into their lives to help them achieve their personal and financial goals. I went to Indiana University to become a teacher and now I own a real estate company. A lot of people laugh when I tell them I have a degree in education, but now I am a business owner. It was funny to me for a while too, but now I realize I am still in education. Just a different kind of education.
People rely on me to educate them about our real estate market, when to sell, how to improve the value of their home, and sometimes how to avoid foreclosure. They invite me into their homes, share with me their hopes and their dreams, and let me get to know them. I feel incredibly blessed by all of the amazing people I have met and the experiences I have had selling real estate.
The other really exciting part of my job is helping other people transition into the career that has become such a huge part of my life. It is incredibly exciting to help new agents develop skills that will allow them to reach their goals and dreams. Teaching them how to price a home or how to write an offer that protects their buyer or even how to use the computer to keep track of their clients and showings is incredibly rewarding to me.
If you LOVE real estate, if you enjoy going to work and being surprised by what your day brings, if you enjoy solving real problems, then real estate might just be for you. If you have any questions about becoming a REALTOR® in Columbus, Indiana, I would love to answer any questions you have. It is a unique career that offers flexibility like no other.
Speaking of which, tomorrow I am heading to Indianapolis to meet with Realtors from all over the state to discuss how the Women’s Council of Realtors can best serve the Realtors in our local chapters. As President, I get to present the amazing lineup of educational events we have prepared for our local Realtors.
Happy House Hunting!
