I Love Real Estate

love_real-estateI asked a group of Allen Tate agents what they were grateful for this holiday season. They replied, with much enthusiasm: “My job!”

As you think about what gifts you hope to receive – or what the New Year might bring, perhaps it is a new career … one that brings YOU the joy that our real estate agents share. 

What do I personally love about real estate? Here’s my list.

  1. I want to learn something new every day, and real estate gives me that opportunity.
  2. I am a giver of joy. Telling first-time buyers that their offer has been accepted makes me forever a part of their home ownership experience.
  3. I can create my own schedule around my life.
  4. I wear many hats and I love the variety. I’m a presenter, educator, negotiator, and much more.
  5. No one can outsource me but me.
  6. I enjoy the recognition from my peers and clients for a job well done.
  7. I am motivated knowing that I determine my own income.
  8. I am a business owner and operator.
  9. I have the opportunity to build great lasting relationships with so many people who continue to enrich my life.
  10. I truly get to make a difference in people’s lives.

During this holiday season, I give thanks to our many agents, who work each and every day to share their joy … and make dreams come true for so many.
