It’s Valentine’s day again and everyone is either proclaiming their love for another, or grudgingly treating themselves to a personal pizza, and a pint of ice cream. Some of us don't wait once a year for that pint of ice cream though...Why wait for a holiday?
Ok, ok...what we're really here to talk about..why we love Real Estate!
1. The People
You have to enjoy working with people in order to be a successful real estate agent. — you’re always around people. It would be dishonest to say that it always goes smoothly, but the relationships and interactions are a huge part of the overall experience, and allow you to connect with people in a way you don’t get to in many other careers.
2. No two days are ever the same
If the drudgery of five days a week at the same office, with the same snack machine, and the same coworkers telling the same lame jokes kills your spirits, then the novelty of working in real estate will be the wind in your sails. No two days will ever be the same in the business, which means every day you’ll embark on a new adventure that could lead to a closed deal, or a trip to the park to meditate and clear your head. If you like variety, you will fall in love.
3.The thrill of the chase
While we may convince ourselves that we showing up to appointments that go nowhere, it’s those very things that make us appreciate our successes that much more. The pursuit, the hopes and dreams of success, the sweat you have to put in to make things happen — all of these are the ingredients for a successful real estate career and we appreciate the work more than we are willing to admit.
4. Just me and the open road
While real estate requires working with lots of different people in different capacities, it also has its share of being an independent professional. Nothing will happen unless you make it happen yourself, so the feeling of getting in your car heading to a new showing appointment and creating your own destiny is always a good thing.
5. The highs are amazing
While the lows are painful, the highs are exhilarating. If you’ve never experienced the joy of a signed contract, or a clear to close, then you have no clue just how energized and happy a signature or a few words can make you feel. Any doubts about the profession can be immediately wiped out, and you can fall in love with real estate all over again after you get to celebrate one of your triumphs.
6. Because we care
They say that if you do something you love, then you’ll never work another day in your life. Well that’s not exactly true, you’ll still have to work, but it will feel different. In real estate, even though you’re helping other people buy and sell houses, it still feels like something that’s yours. And because it’s yours, you will care. And because you care, you will appreciate it in a way that’s different than almost any other job you could possibly have, which is all the more reason to fall in love with it.
