IMPROVING PEOPLES LIVES. That is what we do.
Twain wrote, "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born
and the day you find out why." I couldn't agree more.
We see ourselves as helpers, real estate
Real estate agents get paid very well,
sometimes too well. The type that are only in it for the money stand out
glaringly. They're pushy, rude and only in it for what they can get out of 'the
deal' for themselves.
Don't get me wrong, like most people, I got
into real estate for the money. But that's not why I stayed.
I first became involved with real estate in the
late 1990's. I was first attracted to it as a career by a big salary and the
potential to double it if I did well enough. But there was something more to
it. The company I chose to work with had a training program that promoted 'Ethics in Real Estate'. Something just felt right.
Several years after I'd successfully
established myself in real estate and won some performance and client care awards
came a moment of enlightenment. I always knew I enjoyed real estate as a career, and I knew I was okay at it, but I was so busy living it that I didn't realise
why it worked for me.
Dad ran his own manufacturing business til age
85. At that point I had the amazing opportunity to run the family business. I
stepped into an entirely different industry and learned why I love real estate
In real estate, I was used to helping people who
appreciated it. Clients would send me Christmas cards and thank you gifts. In
Dads business to business manufacturing industry not only would his competitors
knife him in the back but some of his clients would have too, if they could. It was
heartless and cold.
I love helping people and improving their
The appreciation and sincere thanks you get in return is worth its wait in gold. Buyers
love you for helping them find the right house. Sellers love you for helping
them get the best price for their home and successfully navigate the way to
their next home.
Real estate is full of warmth and love.
When I realised that I loved improving people's
lives my life changed too. My cousin John gave me some great advice once. "Find
out who you are and revel in it." I realised that the more people's lives I can
improve the better life gets.
I began studying business and leadership. In
2012 it came time to build a team who cared about people as much as I did so we
could help even more people. I have never been so pleased.
To be surrounded by a team that want to learn
and grow so they can help people in real estate through better marketing
skills, better negotiation skills and be able to improve their clients lives by making it an
easy process for them is an absolute joy.
