I'm doing it now, Paul.... I separated myself completely from listing....it was very difficult to turn my builders over to another agent and it was a process for them, too!! they would always call me and I had to remind them that Lorraine (my business partner) was another version of me....

 Good Saturday morning Paul. I am working on a plan to extend my career. When you retire you die unless you replace it with something else.

I did defer retirement by changing my business to all referrals. All of my clients were referred to associates. 

We have a very comfortable retirement but fully understand that many real estate professionals have failed to assure financial security for retirement.

I retired at 55 and was so bored after six months; I went full time in real estate and have cut back hours to play with the Grandkids. As James Dray said health or the last alternative will be the next factor.

Good morning Paul. As long as I'm loving what I do for a living, no reason to think about it.

My retirement plan is to just list 1-2 very high end properties (5M+) per/year. So extend career but slow down significantly.

Working for some people during retirement is a necessity while for others it is done for fun and I hope that when I retire I have the ability to work when I want to for fun rather than the need to wirk to survive
