A few days back, posted a blog pondering the many careers real estate agents, brokers and associated real estate industry types on board here had BEFORE this one.
Before entering the fast paced, people pleasing job of deadlines, negotiations, and marketing of real estate. From emails I got, many were teachers first due to getting the little ones raised as priority one. And others were home loan bankers that got tired of sliding those big checks with all the zero's in them across the table. Wanted to be on the receiving end for a change. To turn the tables so to speak. Or sit at a different chair at the table.
Wondered if any were in a previous life lawyers, clergy, dentist or funeral directors. Thought it might make for some interesting paths along the way of becoming Joe and Josephine Broker type.
But maybe from many Active Rainer's earliest recollections, they were born, destined and raring to become agents...and never had another inkling to do anything else in life. Were you put on the earth to be a broker from the get go?
Did you start out in real estate but the commission up and down and uncertainty with your fix expenses cause you to retreat and return during a better market cycle?Sit a spell at the keyboard and hammer out your story next time you struggle to provide some interesting reading for all of us.
I think you will see some similar lines of life's turns and twists that made us wander down similar paths.
Oh...and say hi to Mr Maine Black Bear. He is won of the few I've seen with out jelly donut on his hide. These black bears are not very social and hard to find but are known to not be able to resist a jelly filled donut. I know I know..how could you hunt Yogi...I don't but like to take pictures of them. Shoot with a camera.
