I just love this profession.............................................
You go to bed at night and get a GREAT nights rest. All is well in the real estate world, life is good, better and the absolute best. You wake up in the morning feeling on top of the world. You take a casual walk around the neighborhood with your dog and then you head off to the office to start your day. You even have time to take a different route to the office just to see what has changed in your area of the world. You notice that there is a new Walgreens going up just a couple of blocks from your home, a new restaurant that wasn't there last month (or at least you didn't notice it when you were by it last week). Ahh life's good, nothing could be better the sun is out and not a cloud in the sky. You walk into the office all smiles with good mornings to everyone in the office. You get a cup of coffee and sit down at your desk. Oh did I mention you even kissed your spouse good-by before you left the house?
You come home 8, 10 or even 12 hours later. Walk in slam the door, kick the dog and snarl at the spouse. Somewhere between the time you left home with a smile on your face and when you get back home the world has changed. The last thing you can remember is the phone rang!! Now you become a fireman or a psychologist or a (?). The Woolite hits the fan and your world all of a sudden doesn't look like it did just 10 minutes ago.
I still believe that this is an awesome profession even with its ups and downs. I have the opportunity everyday to work with some of the best people in the world, REALTORS®. We do so much on a day to day basis that helps make a difference in peoples' lives. We have donated not only our dollars to rebuild the Gulf Coast after Katrina we have donated our time and energy too. What about all of the other charities that we work with day in and day out. We need to be proud of what we do in our local communities to help our neighbors. We do far more than just sell houses, we make a difference in our communities. There are so many REALTORS® that give back on a daily basis and do it without drawing attention to themselves. They do it because they believe it is the right thing to do and do it with a smile. To you that do this I say thank you and send out to you a STANDING OVATION. You deserve far more than this. Let me assure you that what you are doing is not going unnoticed keep up the good work.
Even though this may be your typical day, I promise, I did not follow you around to get the details for this posting.
By the way, did I mention that the price of gas went up and there was a change to the contract while you were reading this?
