One of the things I love most about working in real estate is that you truly never know what the next day will bring. It’s a fun-filled roller coaster of ups, downs, wins, and losses. While the money can be great, it’s really the people that you work with (your clients) who make the experience positive or negative.
In this episode, Alec and Evan were awesome to work with. As young as they are, they are way beyond their years -- extremely intelligent and very receptive (had all my clients been that way things would have been different this season). Overpricing a listing is no longer an option for me -- neither the seller nor myself are happy in that situation, and we all leave empty handed. While I would love to get a huge sale in with the Highland Beach house, I wouldn’t be honest if I told them it’s worth what they wanted, so renting was a great option for them.
Later in the episode I am meeting with my father, who truly gives me the best advice. I constantly debate the idea of moving to a larger company but struggle with the fact that I built myself, my brand, my everything all on my own and all so very quickly (in three years). I would be lying if I said that I would feel like a failure if I gave it all up to move with a larger company so that I may be able to get a few larger listings. But maybe a larger company can give me additional support and take me to the next level of luxury real estate?
