There are so many people in this world that wake up every morning and hate what they do as a career. It seems like happiness and work dont usually clash but I can honestly say that I LOVE my job. There are endless possibilities with Real Estate and here are the top 6 reasons why I love my job:
1. I LOVE looking at houses (Who Doesnt?)
I do love houses. Old houses and new houses, dated houses and rehabbed houses, big houses and small houses. I do love houses. You literally get to show/look at thousands of houses every year. This means you see different styles, different character, different lifestyles, different cultures, and much more. Most people shop around on Zillow or even watch HGTV just to look at houses. I physically get to see them and its GREAT.
2. People and their stories
Everyone has a story, and each one fascinates me. It’s the people I meet, that I would otherwise not have known, and the life stories they share with me that I love, love, love the most about my job.
3. Each day it’s something new
Sure, there are regular tasks, but every day brings a different combination of things. New people, new properties, new obstacles to get past … no two days are ever the same. I can promise you that!
4. You never stop learning
While it can be intimidating to not have an answer for everything, as someone that loves learning, Real Estate provides a smorgasbord of things to learn. Market trends, new technologies, social media and the things that just pop up in every deal means there’s always something to learn.
5. You get to solve mysteries
The husband likes newer construction, the wife is drawn to older/classic homes … What house will we find that they both will agree on? It starts as a mystery, but you get to help solve it … and always do! Solving mysteries is one of the more fun things I do.
6. Create the American Dream
Part of the American Dream is to have a place called home and Real Estate gives me an opportunity to help people create those memories. I see myself as the gateway to so many future memories and its fun.
