SWDesertHomes in Tucson, Marana, Oro Valley, Vail & More!: What's Important in the Day in a Life of a REALTOR®?

What's Important in the Day in a Life of a REALTOR®?

Long ago (over 25 years!) when I was a new school secretary, a  student interviewed me about my position that I held.  One of the questions was, "What do you dislike the most about your job?"  

I said, "the interruptions". I just wanted to do my work!

As time went on, I grew to realize my job WAS the interruptions.  The typing, the bookkeeping,  the lunch ticket sales, etc -- that just fit around what WAS IMPORTANT.


Working with a REALTOR

This served me even better years later when I worked in the office of a church.  The people, the happenings, life around us -- THAT was the job.

I was thinking about that and applying it to my current career of real estate, going on 11 years end of this month.

The paperwork, the due-diligence, the inspections, the listings, the scheduling, the driving around, etc. etc. etc.  ALL THAT just fits around what's important.  The People.  The Client. YOU.

The rest is just...details.

Hi Cara - That's a great perspective to keep in mind. We can easily get distracted and overcome by the noise and then miss the real opportunities to remember what's truly important.

Great Blog Cara Marcelle Mancuso!  So true . . .  trying to live in the moment and appreciate what we have right now and enjoying the people that are part of our world . . .  and not taking those 'interruptions' for granted, as they are all part of life.

You should have a "feature" here, Cara. Simple, short and oh, so true.

Good morning Cara.  I looked but didn't see the gold star as I agree with Lottie Kendall this should be a feature.
