In this #AskARealtor, we asked our agents why they made real estate into a career.

Becoming a real estate agent is a major life change for most people, whether this was their initial career path or a much-needed change of pace. All of our agents have dedicated their time to countless training courses, endless showings, and lifelong learning from and helping their clients.

So, we wanted to know what made our agents decide to take on the responsibilities of becoming a real estate agent.

Here’s what they said:

I became interested in real estate after meeting with Ron and Brian (our broker and CEO, respectively).  Their enthusiasm was contagious! Like them, I enjoy helping people.”

“I fell in love with improving people homes in small ways long ago. Seeing the joy it brought to people made me even more passionate about the importance of loving the space you live in. When my friends at Property Revival asked me about becoming a Realtor®, it was a natural progression. Now I get to virtually decorate each space I walk my buyers through and help seller’s get their houses in tip top shape without breaking the bank.”

“I decided to become a Real Estate Agent because I was always interested in the home buying process. I had two experiences with buying/selling my own homes that didn’t go well. I wanted to be able to educate buyers and sellers on the process so they understood everything going on and answer any question they had. The home buying experience should be fun and exciting-not daunting! I love the excitement of first time home buyers or buyers simply upgrading/downgrading as well as the selling process of showing off the care of a seller’s home.”

Real estate allows you to determine your own future. The possibilities are endless as a real estate agent. As a mother of 2 small children, I am at a point in my life where I need the flexibility, and a real estate career gives me that. I like that I am my own boss and can create my own destiny.”
