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.
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.
