This Is An Image Of My First Brownie Hawkeye Red Ryder Blackberry Cell Phone...The Early Version.

    

It's said some folks are born made for the profession they eventually settle in on, and maybe this early image holding a primitive early version mobile cell phone text device from Western Auto was the start of my real estate career.andrew mooers, first home showing

     In front of the home next door to where we lived before the move to the farm back in about October 1958 ready to text message news of a new neighborhood real estate listing on Franklin Avenue, Houlton Maine 04730. Or is that a graham cracker I'm holding? Anyway how you got in to the real estate industry, the turn of events that led up to the listing, marketing, selling property rodeo we all have several t-shirts from. You know, the ever changing profession involving marketing local ME real estate, the community it is located, and a little dash of our brand in the process leaking thru. All done hopefully in seamless fashion to look professional, be helpful, not waste anyone's time on line.

  

Ever look over your shoulder, back at the path you took that helped you arrive at a full time job listing, marketing, selling real estate? 

Was it your Dad was a carpenter, Mom loved color schemes and wallpapering and the two bought, improved and sold tired, weary homes before the term"flip this house" became household slang? Or as your family grew, you had to move and your exposure heading up the real estate food chain to other homes made you turn to the real estate profession full time because you found you had a knack for sizing up a place, improving it with sweat equity for profit on the resale flip?

     How did you venture in to the real estate game? And any early pictures like this one that shows how happy you were along the way to listing, marketing, selling real estate? Were you born a REALTOR or how long before you finally became one, settled in to what you found to be your chosen profession? I love what I do and look forward to every day. If I did not, I would find another profession that gave the same fulfillment, sense of pride and accomplishment. Tell us your story and why you do what you do. I worked in radio broadcasting starting at 14 and jumped in to Maine real estate sales at 23 and that was it. But many folks go thru a labyrinth course to finally settle in on being a REALTOR, a real estate property dealer.

Andy, I got a good laugh over that one. It does look like you are holding the very first Brownie Hawkeye Red Ryder Blackberry Cell phone!

I had wanted to be a Realtor for a very long time, but things got in my way. Good for you for jumping in with both feet so early on!

Love that photo!

Cute little fellow wasn't I...what happened? Like my first cell phone...they packaged them like graham crackers. Brilliant...back in the time of Sputnik and building bomb shelters left and right. The house behind me the neighbors built frrom stratch and I mowed their lawn thru out childhood after we moved to the farm. Still think of the Black's as the owners of the place even though they have been gone for years. Those Brownie Hawkeye Red Ryder's were a very rare cell phone. You see them very very infrequently for sale on EBAY Andrea. The broadcasting experience I had from working at a station locally owned by Howdy Doody and then in Bangor ME owned by Stephen King helped in our video production, audio engineering on podcasts, etc. What earlier profession seemingly totally unrelated to real estate makes you a better broker, agent because of what you learned, polished for skills and talents doing before being an agent, broker, REALTOR?

Same here... I wanted to be a Realtor for a very long time, but things kept getting in my way.  Then finally they offered classes at night.. on the two nights a week that I didnt have to work late... ahhh it was meant to be!  I constantly checked class schedules and when I saw they finally had the hours that worked for me I signed up on the spot.  I wish I would have just said the hell with everything years back and just went for it then!  But everything happens for a reason, right?  I got my license when I turned 25.  No regrets! :)

That picture is so cute & funny!  Good luck to you and God bless!

I think the total commission aspect and no weekly pay check nix it for many later in life but when you andrew mooers, mooers realtyare first starting out, your overhead is pretty low and before kids, maybe jumping in if it is the right fit works. We are all built different and shaped further by life events. Here is an image after my first sale...yes I was very happy. Finally a trip to the closing table after several listings but just difficulty being tall enough to do the real estate job properly to land a closing check.
