One of the best things about a real estate career in the opportunity for unlimited earnings.
Rio Rancho, NM
I just love it. There is no ceiling to the income, as Brian Buffini would say.
Meeting new people
Christine Donovan Working and helping people accomplish their goals and having the satisifaction of leaving the closing table with happy clients.
I have worked as a Realtor for 34 years, and I also worked at a software development company for 8 years. By far what I learned from the experience is that if you have a bad boss at a regular job, you are stuck with that bad boss until you quit, or they fire you. But, as an agent, we only have the bad "boss" or client, as long as the transaction is open!
The ability to schedule your own day is the greatest freedom!
Lots of reasons.
- Being my own boss.
- I love looking at homes.
- I love renovating and building.
- It's cliche but I meet so many awesome people in this line of work. From great clients to great Realtors.
I think that my profession helps people make an informed decision on the property they intend to purchase.
Seeing the look on the faces of first time buyers when they finally find THE HOME of their dreams!!!!
Soo many things...and it so portable...short respite...2 listing appointments, 3 offers and 2 new buyers....great stuff !
The commission checks are the goal, but I also enjoy the clients that we make part of our family.
I love helping people make their dreams come true.
Getting to choose who I work with and what company I affiliate with. If something doesn't feel right I can walk away and I like that control.
I like that it's a different job everyday.
