This week while at a new construction home orientation for one of my clients, my phone kept dinging uncontrollably. I could feel a sense of anxiety rushing in from my dress pocket where my phone was located - assuming I was missing some earth-shattering event. When I was finally able to check my phone, I saw it was Twitter notifications. My article had gone live - I was officially published! Given English was my least favorite subject all throughout school and I absolutely loathed writing - having an article published was the last thing I would have foreseen. I'm sure all my past English teachers/professors would agree.
A few weeks ago Inman News/Inman NEXT reached out to me via this Blog and asked if I would be interested in writing a guest post for them - sure, I said! Then, shortly after I had said yes, I wasn't so sure what I had just committed to - really. I didn't have the slightest idea what to write about as I watched the cursor blink on the computer screen. After brainstorming and thinking a bit, I felt strongly to write about my early struggles as a 20-something, newbie agent in hopes at least one agent would find it helpful - or even just read it for that matter. If you so desire, you can check out the article here.
My journey as a Realtor hasn't and isn't without difficultly, but I am blessed to make a living doing what I love. As far as I'm concerned, the journey has just started. I love the arbitrariness of this industry - never knowing what the next call/text/email will bring. Oh and please - don't let those TV shows make you naive. Being a REALTOR isn't as glorified as #MDLNY/#MDLLA make it seem unless you call glorified standing out in 97 degree weather with humidity at 100% in stilettos and dress while discussing roof lines and life decisions. Gaining a visual?
S/O: In spirit of the #BBMA tonight, this one goes to my unconditionally, supportive Hubs.
