I LOVE the Real Estate Industry!
I was a Realtor in Colorado and quickly earned my GRI. I earned Rookie of the Year my first year and Realtor of the year my second year. Followed by awards for Multi-Million dollars in sales.
I then moved to Oklahoma to be near family and decided to become a Real Estate Appraiser. I attended the Appraisal Course (live, classroom course), but afterwards, I could not find anyone (within driving distance) that met the requirements as a Supervisory Trainer to supervise me for at least 1 year AND 2000 hours as an apprentice. So that was the end of my aspirations to be an Appraiser.
So I took the Oklahoma Real Estate course (live, classroom course) and found a broker I wished to work for, even set up my Top Producer website and ordered my business cards...but then my husband's job transferred him to Wyoming! Uggh! Not kidding.
His job moved us at least 100 miles every month through Wyoming, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Kansas and Texas so I had to put a career in the Real Estate Industry on hold and I too became a Pipe-Liner! (Constructing Natural Gas Pipelines.)
After many years, I became tired of living out of motels and travel trailers and went to Colorado to have a "home base" for us while he continued to pipeline. By then my Real Estate License had expired. I decided to become a Home Inspector and took the On-Line courses through InterNACHI, passed the courses, received my Certified Home Inspector's license, and shadowed a Master Home Inspector on all his jobs for work experience. My phone was ringing off the hook but I truly did not care for Home Inspecting as a career and began referring all the business to others.
Soooooo....I again took the Colorado Real Estate Course (on-line) Lol! During that time I helped a Real Estate Auction company with their Real Estate Auctions. My husband was moved and working in Texas...
I went to visit him for awhile and decided to move to Witchita Falls, Texas.
So I could now get back into the industry I LOVE and hopefully he would not be relocated again. REAL ESTATE is my PASSION and I LOVE helping others so I really wanted to get a job at the Wichita Falls Association of Realtors. I was in the right place at the right time!!! (Location, Location, Location!) An opening became available and I was fortunate to be a part of the amazing staff in the Association Office! ...not for long (only 2 years) ...Moved again!!! My hubby was relocated to Oklahoma!
With expertise and/or "training" in many fields of the real estate industry, I have moved AGAIN and now live in OKC, Oklahoma and hoping to get a job in the real estate industry.
