Ken's Naperville Real Estate Blog : April 2008

WHAT NIGHT IS IT????

I have two jobs.  One career.  But two jobs.

One is a limo driver.  I do it part time.  Whenever my buddy Chris needs me, I drive for him.  The money is pretty good.  You can make between probably $10 and $50 per hour, depending on the job.  It is a perfect part time job.

My other job.  The professional real estate agent.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Panic at the thought.  Constant anxiety.  Will we ever sell a home???  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

But it is also my career.  And when I look at it that way, the stress fades away.  I don't know when my next closing is, but I do know that my business is GROWING!!

Every day I learn.  Therefore every day I get just a little bit better.  I can't tell you how exciiting that is.

This is my life.  It's a good life.  I can't wait to see where we go next!

I LOVE OPEN HOUSES!
share
Let me tell you why: 1. If you are a seller are you telling me you don't want your realtor having open houses? Of course you do. They bring exposure to your home. This is a good thing. Don't let anyone tell you it is not. 2. I put up as many… more

Hmmm. I just read a post complaining about complainers. He even said it was killing him. Very interesting indeed. This makes me think. Do we have to be positive? What do we mean when we say people are "negative"? The way I look at it,… more
