Over the course of my Real Estate Career I’ve noticed a theme…VERY LITTLE COMES EASY, I MEAN VERY LITTLE!
Let me start from the beginning…so… licensed in 1993, I’ve completed over 2000 transactions in my career, Masters Club for the past 10 years and all that good stuff, blah, blah, blah RIGHT? Trust me I’m not here to brag, you just need to know that I’ve been through and am still actively in THE TRENCHES working my bootie off just like you!
I originally got into “THE BIZ” to help a friend out in their office because EVERYONE has always told me that I have a “KNACK” for SIMPLYING THINGS. A skill that may very well stem from being a bit impatient. But whatever get’s you there, RIGHT?
Eventually, I got the nerve up to take my classes and apply for the DREADED REAL ESTATE EXAM. I’m not gonna tell you how many times I took it…the bottom line is that I passed!
So there I was new to the business, very little knowledge and NO CLUE on how to get business…you could say I was a little overwhelmed out of the gate.
The one thing I did have going for me…I wasn’t afraid to DIVE IN! I agreed to take FLOOR DUTY and within the first 20 minutes I GOT MY FIRST CALL!!!
OMG, what do I do now??? BREATHE…STAY CALM…I was so excited/nervous, I just gave one word answers and when the caller asked me to meet them at the property in an hour, you best believe I said HECK YEA!
I remember hanging up and thinking to myself, “Wow this is a PIECE OF CAKE.” 20 minutes, 1 call, 1 appointment. I got this in the bag!
REMEMBER what I said earlier about NOTHING COMING EASY?
