Why did I choose Real Estate as a career?
When I hear myself say 40+ years as a REALTOR® it seems surreal! Looking back, my plan was to go to University, graduate with my degree and work in my chosen profession. Well, I did go to University but I didn’t graduate with my degree…I realized in my second year that I wasn’t on the right path. So I “came home on the bus.” My parents drove me back to University but again
I “came home on the bus.” This time my parents relented. I got a job at a bank and was progressing through various positions. I enjoyed learning new things. One night I went with some co-workers to a random presentation titled Real Estate Home Buying Laws and Procedures. During that presentation something clicked with me and based on a gut feeling, I gave my two-week notice at the bank and decided to become a Realtor® .
An Unwavering Desire To Succeed
The interest rates were 18% and going up. That didn’t discourage me. I got my real estate licence, traded in my shiny blue Camaro for a four-door sedan and off I went. I read books about being a real estate agent and listened to…yes… cassette tapes. I had one sale in my first six months. I also had an unwavering desire to succeed and gradually more sales occurred; especially when the interest rates went down to 13 ¼%! With every sale I felt an amazing sense of accomplishment; I was helping people! The days were often long. No cell phones: just a pager and rolls of quarters for pay phones. I not only learned about parts of the city I had never been to, but I also learned where many of the pay phones were located. Most importantly, I learned about people and the importance of listening to people. I could not assume that any transaction would be like another one because different people were involved. Every person had their own unique story. Every person reacted differently. My role was to be versatile and to guide and support each person. Bandaids. I had quarters and bandaids. I have been known to fall off steps, trip while lifting a double garage door (that was a classic!), dive to catch a cat that ran out of a house… so many stories. Also emotions. It is humbling when people trust me enough and they share their emotions.
The 80/20 Rule
I would say the 80/20 rule applies to real estate: 80% is about the people. The real estate business platform has changed completely since I started my career and I enjoy the challenge of learning new things. The part that has stayed the same is helping people and that is the part I love. The gut feeling I had over 40 years ago definitely took me on the right path. (and my parents survived the turmoil).
