I hate the accounting and paper work like that. I know it needs to be done but I hate it.

Bookkeeping and filing is just boring....but necessary part of being self employed.
Best part: Announcement about closing:)
Debbie Reynolds what I like most is a smile on my buyers face at closing!
What I like least? An unsold listing!!!!
I love discovering new tools and working on contracts. I don't like getting all the paperwork filed or uploaded in dot loop if I can't do them electronically.
Routine is a tough one for me, I like working the vision.
Dealing with difficult people is my least favorite. Nice people are the most favorite.
The most favorite part is closing, even everyone has different reasons to be happy about it. The least favorite part: rejection of your offer or letting your listing go.
Not only the great clients and great agents you meet but that feeling when you drive by that home and knowing you helped someone achieve their goals. On the flipside when you see a home you sold on the MLS as a foreclosure that is the worst.
The part I dislike most? The sunshine. Occasionally the buyer or the seller has elected to not be transparent and as closing approaches, they are pulled out of the shadows into the sunshine. "Seriously, you've been out of work for six weeks and you thought it would not matter?" "Seriously, the one signing the contracts is NOT your spouse?"
What I like most is the validation that I do know what I'm doing when the lion has been de-clawed, fangs pulled, the roaring silenced and the check is in my hand. Uncertain, vulnerable citizens placed their trust in me and I over delivered. Now that puts a little jump in my walk.
Dealing with some of the bad agents was always the part that I disliked.
I love meeting new people, seeing new homes and seeing the smiles at closing. The least favorite is any mean people you meet along the way, just out to get someone and complain about everything.
I love to meet first time buyers and explain the home buying process and showing them homes. I love to show new construction.
Oh, I forgot to answer the 2nd question. I love meeting w/ nice customers and helping them decorate/transform their home. I feel that I'm making a big difference. I also love seeing different types of homes and I get to see some really nice ones.
I love to see homeowners excited about their new home.
My office has just gone paperless. This has caused more work on the agents, believe it or not. Like everyone else, I dislike the paperwork.
I love the excitement of new home owners! It is such a wonderful feeling to know they are happy.
I dislike the paper work necessary to get the deal done.
