I can just about guarantee that 2022 has been a challenge for you in some way. 2022 brought no shortage of trouble, but it’s that struggle that makes us who we are. I’ve been in real estate for many years, and I’ve seen a lot of success and also heartbreak. The losses and struggles are how I keep my perspective of gratitude, but it’s not an easy skill to maintain!
I’ve always been on a real estate team until this year. So for over 10 years, I worked and trained with a high-volume team. I organized and coordinated a lot of the business operations, and if I had not gotten that training and experiences, I would not be having the fun I’m having now. I’d still be learning how to set up a social media account, I’m sure!
Anyway, being a Realtor means my business stands alone. I am responsible for my own clients, and I know that at the end of the day, my name and business are on the line, so I have to always be at my best.
I’ve been an independent agent for about 6 months, but I’ve learned so much more even in just that short time. I learned that I have the most AMAZING clients, customers, and coworkers. I do not take lightly that my clients trust me to help them with these huge decisions. Decisions that can make or break their future successes. My clients’ successes are my lifeblood, and it’s because they met their challenges with confidence and resilience. This real estate market probably aged all of us about 10 years, but at least we’re all in it together, right?!
I wrote all that to say that being a Realtor is a challenge on top of the challenge of operating a small business, but the people we meet along the way make it worth the trouble. I love what I do, I love those I already work with, and I especially love my clients and customers who have trusted me with their real estate needs. I am really looking forward to what 2023 brings… when we all work together, we can accomplish great things! Merry Christmas, and happy New Year to all of Middle Georgia- I’m glad to belong to this wonderful community in Houston County!
