I've been a Realtor for 37 years.  I am trying to keep a slower pace as I move through my golden years.  However, I really am never quite away.  The good news with technology and cell phones, it is easier to always be on duty than it was in 1981.

Always on duty... I am fortunate to have a group of people in my office that all work together and help each other. So whether you are sick or on vacation we all have each others back. Never the less you have to stay in tune with each decision and action and keep on line to make sure all is good for your client.

Many years ago, as an asset manager of of large portfolio, it was 24/7/365 without any breaks. Then I realized life was too short! Now I have all days off and that is the other extreme!

"On duty" is akin to "Always Open" or "24/7.  It's a concept that works in name only for some but can be found as part of others.  Priorities come to mind.

Depends on whether we go fishing at our favorite spot on the weekend (virtually little/no internet) or have the Gbabies (present for memories like lizard chasing and picking strwaberries from the patch). Will periodically check messages though.

Days off?  That does not work.

However a real vacation into places without cell coverage....now that's how you spell VACATION!  Even then I do purchase a list from the local taxing authority.

Paul,

You know we were in commercial real estate, and to this day when I see a sign I do notice it and we will often comment on it especially when we are in LA.  We knew every owner of every building and the stories with those properties in those days.  I also notice the real estate signs in Europe...And the same for brands, I live an breathe brands---love what we do, love seeing spins and packaging...From that aspect, I am on duty...however, I enjoy it.  Now being in the countryside, perhaps I am off duty...A
