Introducing a Breath of Fresh Air Realty!

Well the real estate business has proven to be quite and interesting ride. I first started working for a very large company, because that is what is mandated by the state commission. This is a good requirement, because I learned so much from this experience and I did learn about how this industry works. I learned everything that is required to get a buyer or seller to the closing table and I had lots of resources to get the job done. For this experience, I am very grateful. I made ok money and I always had plenty to do.

I worked so hard at this company that after only a short period of time, I was able to get my first sale only after 3 months in the business. The next year, I did a little bit better and by my third year, I was the company’s Top Producer and a multi-million dollar producer. I was doing great, until the rug was pulled out from under me. The owner of the firm decided not to renew the franchise agreement and he sold all the contracts that he had to another firm. I did have the choice to go to this firm, but after much thought, I started to shop around. I went on interview after interview, looking for a new firm. What I learned was the secret to how these firms kept making money, even in a down market. They were charging so much money to have me work for them. I gave all my options a lot of thought and decided to take a leap of faith and work for a very small independent firm with a friend. This was great for what it was, because I learned what was involved with being in an independent firm. Trust me, there is a lot!

I was working hard, I was making money, but I noticed that my partner was not working in real estate as hard. In stead, my partner had their sight on something different. This should have been a warning sign. I noticed that agreements between my partner and I were being changed without my knowledge. My commissions started to change at a drop of a hat. This is not at all what I signed up for, so change was in the air. I decided to start my own firm!

So there you have it! I am now my own Broker-Owner! I own Breath of Fresh Air Realty, LLC. I am just starting out, but I feel that good things are just around the corner. If things done work out the way I expected, it will be my own fault. I know my future is bright and the path might be unknown; however, I am sure that it will be an adventure!
